The 5 Best Restaurants in Bali

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.

The Nook

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.

Bebek Tebasari Resto 

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!

Habitat Cafe

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.

The Genius Café

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).

    OMG! These are such nice restaurants suggestion. The fried egg on top of rice remind me when we would go out eating in Thailand. I like the sound of THE JOGLO – as they have an adjoining Pilates studio. How cool is that! I also really like the sound of THE GENIUS CAFÉ. These dishes looks so delicious. I never seen a black bread burger before. Interesting. I’m so pinning this!

    We’re currently travelling round SE Asia and I am gutted Bali is not on our itinerary – the food looks so good! I am also a big foodie and basically my travels revolve around what we’re eating and where… loved this post! #farawayfiles

  9. Shelley @Travel-Stained says:

    Whenever we go to Ubud, we somehow end up eating at Kafe all the time…can’t get enough of that place, but I’ll definitely keep Habitat in mind now. We also took a tour of Green School when we visited – what an incredibly gorgeous place! #farawayfiles

    Oh my goodness, so much lovely food! Is there a good website with recipes for these kind of things, so I could give it a go at home (we’re a non-flying family, so chances of me ever getting to Bali are pretty much slim and none, lol)? Looks delicious! ?x
