I first stood on that board as an 18 year old, when Tubes was a nightclub.
25 years later, Ned took his turn.
The nightclub is now a family-friendly restaurant in Kuta, with plenty to keep the kids entertained.
Surf that Wave at Tubes Bali!
There’s indoor and outdoor seating. Indoor seating is under fans. The al fresco dining area has tables and a large bar area under a thatched roof with bamboo styling, with twinkly lights creating a lovely atmosphere.
There’s a kids play area, pool tables, darts, and people watching if you dare. It’s the perfect place for big groups of family and friends to eat.
Old School Bali Vibe
The atmosphere is old school surfer Bali, and there’s a big screen with surf movies playing day and night, plus there’s old photos and surfing memorabilia to browse.
Tubes Bali is off-street and away from the honking of motorbikes and scooters on Poppies II. It’s surprisingly quiet!
Staff are friendly and helpful, and happy to engage with the kids. There’s music too.
Menu and Prices at Tubes Bar Bali
The food is super cheap, but good, but the presentation of the meals is more pub grub than fancy restaurant.
The breakfast menu includes toasted sandwiches, create your own jaffles, BLTs, and muesli.
Tubes menu has a variety of Indonesian and Western dishes including burgers and chips, seafood, pasta, burritos, steaks, pizza, tacos, . and curries. The food comes in large servings – buy one meal for the kids to share.
We recommend the Nasi Goreng, the Nasi Campur, and don’t leave without eating the apple crumble. Thirsty mums and dads will love the cold beer and the $5 cocktails.
Where is Tubes in Kuta?
It’s a relaxed vibe where you don’t have to worry about the kids being too noisy or moving around. It’s NOT fine dining, and kids are more than welcome.
The best time for families is during the day for breakfast or lunch, or an early dinner as it fills up with beer-swilling backpackers later on.
Down the middle of Poppies 2, you can’t miss Tubes Bali.
The gigantic fibreglass wave at the front entrance catches your eye from the street, and just about every kid, big and small, wants a go at standing on that board, no matter that it’s a bit cheesy.
