We are huge foodies and there is no hiding our love for good food, amazing wine and delicious coffee. So, when we go travelling we are always on the hunt for great finds. We recently spent a month travelling around Bali with the kids spending most of our time in Canggu, Seminyak, Sanur, Ubud, and Jimbaran. Whether you are travelling with kids or adults only in Bali here are our Top 5 best restaurants in Bali sure to get your mouth watering.
Address: Jl. Umalas 1, Gang Nook No. 1, Kuta Utara, Badung, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Kota Denpasar, Bali 80361, Indonesia
Phone: (0361) 8475625
After visiting a couple of local schools in the area, we asked our driver if he knew anywhere we could stop for lunch. The Nook was his first suggestion and we were pretty delighted with his recommendation.
Nestled away in lush rice fields away from the crazy hustle and bustle of Seminyak is this divine little cafe restaurant.
It’s family friendly, the coffee was delicious and as a multi cuisine restaurant (Indonesian, Asia & Western) there was something to keep everyone in the family happy. Opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner this was a family favourite.
Address: Jl. Raya Kengetan – Lodtunduh, Ubud, Gianyar, Bali – Indonesia 80571
Phone: +62 361 8493382 / +62 361 8493383 / +62 8123687466
After an amazing tour of the Green School we were hot and famished and again sought out the recommendation of our driver for a yummy place for lunch. He took us to the very tranquil Bebek Tebasari Resto. Not only does it over look some lovely lush rice paddy fields, but it also has an amazing large pond where the kids can feed the fish.
You can eat in the main part of the restaurant or in a private bamboo dining hut sitting over the large pond. The service was exceptional. They also offer multi cuisine (Western, Balinese and Asian Infusion). An added bonus, there is free wifi and a shuttle service around Ubud.
made’s warung berawa (formerly – The Joglo)
Address: Jl. Subak Sari 13 Berawa, Desa Tibubeneng, Canggu, Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia
Phone: +62 361 9347778
Whilst staying in Canggu, the Joglo became a regular visit. We stumbled upon this little gem whilst simply walking around the local area and it quickly became a convenient ‘go to’ place to relax after a day of exploring.
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, in addition to some amazing cold press juices & smoothies this place had a lot to offer including a playground and dedicated kids play corner.
The Joglo also has a kid’s menu, a weekly movie night and an adjoining Pilates studio… oh and they do take away too!
Address: Jalan Monkey Forrest 88, Ubud
Phone: +62 852-3911-5800
Just down the road from the amazing Monkey Forest is Habitat Cafe. A funky little café that offers delicious coffee, free wifi and tasty food.
There was so much to love about this café. All day breakfast (until 3pm), scrumptious Buddah Bowls and the convenience of being open from 8am to 10pm… If you have anything here it has to be their smoothie bowls! A definite must try and family favourite.
Address: Genius Cafe, Mertasari Beach, Sanur, Bali, 80228
Phone: +62 821 4415 8854
I will be forever grateful for the lovely lady that offered up this suggestion to me in a Facebook chat group. We had been in Sanur checking out the area and local schools as part of our reconnaissance trip and were keen to find a relaxing kid- friendly place to eat. Hubby and I wanted to chat and go over our notes but were mindful that the kids still needed some play time.
Tucked away behind the Mercure Hotel right on the beach is this amazing café. They service breakfast lunch & dinner, offer free wifi and have something on almost everyday. (Salsa dancing, movie nights, kids movie nights, live music… etc)
This place was amazing, and the food was divine. There are a lot of whole food and plant based meals to choose from. (Including Gluten Free, Daily free, nut free, Vegan, Vegetarian, meals).
