One of Bali’s oldest restaurants, Poppies opened on 12 January 1973 along an empty sandy track leading to Kuta Beach that soon became known as Poppies Lane

For fifty years we have welcomed visitors and friends from around the world to these hanging gardens of Kuta, offering fine dining and calming respite from the ever-increasing hustle and bustle beyond our walls. Our menu includes several house favourites that remain as popular today as when we introduced them in 1973.

Our food is as fresh as can be, and contains no MSG. We still prepare our sauces and dressings daily from fresh ingredients.

For our gluten sensitive and vegetarian guests, we mark items accordingly. Please mention any other special needs to your waiter before ordering, and our chefs will do their best to accommodate them.
