Crocodile Dundee anyone? Bush style front porch in wood, with a stuffed crocodile right smack in the center. Food is decent, not to rave about though. Serves Austrlian, Italian, and Mexican food. Can't help but think of that oily statesman Bush. Guess it says much about the food! Good for a decent bite, but if you are looking for better... More

Worst food ever in Bali. I don't know why as it could easily have been good. If you don't believe me, check out the dead crocodile at the entrance. It came in, ate a meal at The Bush Telegraph and then died right there.

Went there for a quick brunch, ordered light and simple meals. Waited for ages. Service was not very good. Serve sour milk. Did we go at the wrong time?

Went there for a casual meal and went in based on prices listed on street. When you pay your bill beware they add 10% tax plus 6% service charge plus an additional 3% on any card payments, none of which is disclosed so what seems like a reasonably priced meal becomes 20% more expansive without disclosure. What makes it worse... More

Easy place to find due to the large stuffed alligator on the entryway. They have live music nightly, usually acoustic. Beers are reasonably priced, considering you have live music and no entry fee. We would walk by nightly and if we liked the band, would stop in for a couple drinks.

By midday in the build-up of Bali, it was hot enough to fry a dead dingo's donger. As if by some mystical connection to homeland, I was called my native telepathic urges to meet my cousin-brother, my tribal skin name, Buaya (the crocodile). I had been called! He was waiting at the doorway of the BUSH TELEGRAPH to usher me... More
