The Bali Food Guide 2017

The greatest thing about Bali is the food. You can go out to great restaurants every day and afford it all. From luxury beach clubs to small healthy, clean eating cafes. Bali has it all.
It became a hobby for me to find the best food in Bali for a reasonable price. I tried a lot of restaurants and these were my favorites in Seminyak, Canggu and Ubud. Note: I didn’t get a Bali belly 🙂

Seminyak & Canggu

The Spicy Coconut: My favorite breakfast, I went here at least 5 times. We ordered the ‘Fuel Me Up’ with scrambled tofu, pumpkin bread, vegetables, hummus and pesto and a smoothie bowl. And off course a fresh young coconut to drink.

Watercress: It’s a little bit hard to find but I loved to go here for breakfast. Also very healthy food.

Nook: Favorite view in Seminyak. Get away from the busy center and eat amongst rice fields. They have a varied menu, Indonesian and European.

Potato Head Beach Club: Huge beach club with a pool. Great spot to watch to sunset with a cocktail. There’s a minimum spend for the pool area.

Cafe Bali Organic: Organic food, great for breakfast.

The Shady Shack: Hip and healthy. Went here for breakfast and lunch.

Peloton Supershop: Healthy food and vitamin shots.

The Savage Kitchen: Healthy food and smoothies.

Finns Beach Club: Luxury at the beach. Great cocktails and pool. There is a minimum spend to get in.

Old Man’s: Cool surfer spot at the beach with a great vibe. The place in Canggu for drinks at night.

Dandelion: Very good Indonesian food for a good price and also a very nice staff.

Betelnut: It’s always busy at Betelnut. It’s a cheap backpacker bar with delicious chicken wraps.

The Slow: New, hip restaurant with a nice interior and good food.


Moksa: This was my ultimate favorite restaurant in Ubud. I had breakfast, lunch and dinner at this place. At Moksa they only serve plant based food, so everything was very healthy.

Sweet Orange Warung: My second favorite in Ubud was Sweet Orange Warung. A small restaurant with a lovely view in the middle of the ricefields.

Puspa’s Warung: Little Indonesian restaurant with great and very cheap food.

Who’s Who: Schnitzel and french fries with Belgian owner.

Uma Mandi: Rice field view and delicious nasi goreng for lunch.

  1. Nook is one of my favorites! I really like the ambiance and rice field views. It has changed in the years though the restaurant has became much bigger.

  2. I tried Moksa when I was in Ubud, and agree it was absolutely delish! After all that babi guling it was a great way to wash down the extra fats :p
