Henry’s Grill & Bar

At Henry’s Grill & Bar, the menu is fuelled by wood, showcasing the secrets that wood-fired cooking holds in making a truly mouthwatering meat experience. This Bali steakhouse burns a collection of different woods daily to create coals that will then be used to enhance the natural characteristics of the ingredients, producing perfectly aged smoked and cured meats.

Choose from ‘the Belly of the Beast’ menu and bite into 30-day aged grilled meats cooked over an exotic blend of coffee, ram-butan, and apple wood. If you’re a bit of a beast yourself, their 500g T-Bone Italian style bistecca or the 1kg Tomahawk on the bone are some of the best Henry’s can offer – some of largest offerings of steak in Bali ! To add a kick to the improved menu, the team is serving an eclectic selection of dishes, such as Wagyu Beef and seafood favourites.

Clay Craft

This one isn’t necessarily a standalone steak house but is worthy of an honourable mention for one of one of its meaty treats.

Clay Craft at the Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa serves up the coolest, most interactive dining experience in Bali. The central point of the restaurant is the working, Balinese pottery studio where guests can play with the Clay Artists to bring their creations to life. But when it comes to meat, what grabs our attention is their take on a Balinese specialty of pork ribs.

The Babi Bali Asli, made from Bali Heritage Black Pig Ribs, is dry rubbed with a special mix of Bali-nese herbs and spices prior to cooking and further seasoning with the likes of sambal (chilli paste), soy sauce, tamarind and lime juice to give this legendary rack a caramelised top. This huge portion of ribs is set on a bed of sautéed garlic and chilli spinach, alongside a beautiful, golden grilled corn. The dish is also served with a special song to gear you up before you tear into this memorable meat experience!
