Description: Seminyak Beach front Restaurant Chez Gado Gado offers an exciting new concept in modern and contemporary European style dining in a relaxed, yet stylish environment. Surrounded by a beautiful outdoor deck dining area complete with pergola, Chez Gado Gado offers uninterrupted views across the Seminyak beach and Indian Ocean. It is a perfect setting for romantics and special occasions. Our cuisine can be described as eclectic with a mix of European and Indonesian an Asian items while offering a relaxed and casual service during lunch time. Dinner time provides a slightly more formal and professional service that matches its European style menu with local flavors. Chef Quirijn Rademaker proves his creativity by creating an innovative culinary journey with clean finishes. While we are a casual fine dining restaurant, proper attire such as shirt (no branded tank tops/singlets/T-shirt) and footwear, will be required in fairness to all of our guests. Bookings and reservations larger than 8 and no smoking requests will be prepared inside our dining room. Parties of 12 or more adults requires an assigned set menu so that the flow of service for all of our guests is not disrupted. Outside tables will require a reservation and will be set per weather permitting and space availability.

“Beachside Beauty!”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

This was our first meal at Chez Gado Gado and it was just fabulous.
Firstly the restaurant is beautiful, It is very well maintained and the staff obviously take alot of pride in their workplace.
We were greeted very pleasantly and when we requested to move inside to the air conditioning, it was no problem at all to the waitstaff.
The food was exceptional and drinks selection was great.
I can only say positive things about our experience at Chez Gado Gado and that you must try it if you are heading to Bali.

“Fine dining at its best”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

This was my second visit to Gado Gado. Had the 6 course seafood set menu on this occasion which I could not fault. The Cuban mojito is also a winner. Would highly recommend to others.

“Still there after 9 years but declining”
Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

We first went to Gado Gado in about August 2004 and have visited pretty much every time back to Bali since. In that time the area around the restaurant has developed and the path to Jalan 66 opened, all of which has changed the demographic more towards mainstream. The restaurant has in that time slowly moved from an adventurous menu with top service positioned towards the upper end of restaurants in the Legian-Seminyak strip, to now much more a middling place with a nice westernised menu but no surprises, and patchy service with less fluent english. Collared shirts have given way to thongs and singlets (as observed on our last visit).

The opening of the path out front back to Jalan 66 is a negative thing, now motorcycle traffic along the front is frequent and the touts more numerous.

The wine list remains varied and of quality and, for Bali, well priced. The dry gin and vodka martinis we ordered were excellent, nice and dry with top drawer spirits (No. 10 as opposed to Gordons thank you!).

Overall worth a visit if you are nearby, and don't get me wrong the food remains good. Just don't expect a culinary experience as one might have in the past.

CGado2, Manager at Chez Gado Gado, responded to this review, 29 November 2013
Thank you very much for taking the time to give us a glowing review and feedback. We take great care and pride to provide great service and cuisine. During lunch we provide a very casual and relaxed service serving comfort food with a splashes of local flavors. For dinner time, we give a very elegant service and enforce a dress code to exclude tank tops/singlets and tong sandals, not to mention a culinary adventure that some might say, adventurous.
We thank you again for your feedback and review and we do hope to see you again at our restaurant.

Sincerely,
Fariz Mambu
Restaurant Manager
