Breakfast – Crate in Canggu

Breakfast, or ‘brekkie’, is big business on Bali. Located on Batu Bolong in Canggu, Crate is the place to be for a morning meal before a surf session, yoga class or afternoon Bintang on the beach. With excellent prices, large portions, cozy seating options and good tunes, we highly recommend a cappuccino or smoothie with the breakfast burrito, generous brekkie plate or eggs with feta and tomatoes. Delicious!

Acai Bowls – Nalu Bowls in Seminyak, Canggu or Uluwatu

With three current locations, Nalu Bowls is catching on as the fresh, healthy go-to for fruity goodness on Bali. All ingredients are locally sourced, and all bowls are topped with their homemade granola. Our favorite bowl is the Pipeline with Banana, Pineapple, Mango, Coconut, Coconut Milk and Coconut Water, although all of them are extremely tasty!

Indonesian Favorites – Warung Bambuku in Seminyak

Located at the west end of Sunset Road, Warung Bambuku has some of the best local dishes around. Grab a fresh fruit juice to go with your meal, and relax in the open-air atmosphere. Portions are as large as you like, and prices are great for the excellent flavors and quality of various dishes. Highly recommended!

Kid-Friendly – Pirates Bay in Nusa Dua

If you plan on bringing the family to Bali or just really like the idea of dining in the trees, Pirates Bay in Nusa Dua is the place to do it! With multi-level treehouses, private dining cabanas and even a full blown pirate ship, this place is a dream playground turned restaurant come true. While the food isn’t particularly memorable, the ambience and general atmosphere is too good to pass up, even for adults.

Mexican Food – Lacalaca Cantina in Seminyak

A great option for afternoon happy hour (Monday through Thursday from 5 to 7pm), head here for delicious items like carnitas, carne asada tacos and fresh-made margaritas. They also have a great brunch menu with items like huevos rancheros and bloody mary’s, and don’t skip the churros with chocolate sauce for dessert. Yum!

Seafood Dinner – Menega Cafe in Jimbaran

Located at the lovely Jimbaran Bay, make a reservation for an oceanfront table at this South Bali staple. Without a doubt, this is one of the most romantic meals you can experience on Bali, and also some of the best fresh fish on the island.
