Dining at Hard Rock Kuta Bali

No.1: The Bali Hard Rock Cafe on Jl. Pantai Kuta Bali

The Bali Hard Rock cafe is located on the main road of Kuta, opposite Kuta Beach, on the beach side of the hotel complex. 

The Hard Rock Cafe kids menu for kids under 10 has all the American diner favourites:

  • Chicken tenders
  • Mac and Cheese
  • Buddy Jnr’s cheeseburger

But there’s also healthy options such as a chicken salad, or chicken breast with vegetables. 

The bet is they’ll order the Cookies & Cream mini milkshake with oreos too! 

The adults menu includes their Legendary Steak burgers, bbq wings, all American sliders, classic nachos, caesar salads, melted sandwiches, and baby back ribs!

Do stop by the Hard Rock Cafe Bali Shop on your way out. (Details below)

No.2: Jamie’s Italian restaurant

Just outside the complex, Jamie’s Italian Bali is one of our favourite places to eat with kids. 

It’s casual dining at it’s best.

The food at Jamie Oliver kitchen is, not surprisingly, DELICIOUS. 

Try the crispy chicken wings, the sticky miso chicken, Jamie’s Mie goreng, or the LASAGNE.

Their pizzas are some of the best you’ll find in Bali, so if the kids are desperate for ‘normal’ food, book a table. 

And DO order dessert. You might need to visit three times to try them all.
