It’s been a whole year since the island’s fiercest online F&B competition last took place, but the time has come again to put establishments to the test in the Bali Best Restaurant, Bar and Cafe Awards (BRBCA) 2017!



This campaign started in 2014, where our aim has always been to create a fair, open competition. With registration open to all legitimate establishments, and popular public votes to steer the winners, for three years the BRBCA has been a trusted, transparent and unbiased campaign.

The BRBCA in fact has 3 awards, the Readers Choice Awards (1.5 months of online voting), the Editors Choice Awards (hand-picked winners) and the Industry Choice Awards (voted by top members of the F&B community). This all comes to an end with our glamorous BRBCA Gala Awards Night.

New in 2017

We’re very excited to welcome two of our Partners in this year’s campaign. We welcome BRBCA’s 2017 main supporter, American Express, our official card. We are also very excited to have this year’s Trophy Plate supporters, Royal Doulton.

We’re also very proud to showcase our new layout that is noticeably more user friendly for both participants and voters. Now with a filter for categories and direct search for venues, voters can find any establishment they’re looking for. We’ve also increased our bandwidth to avoid any crashes from huge traffic like in early 2016.
