8 Great Restaurants to Try in Bali

We love exploring a new place and finding great places to eat. Here are some of our favorites from our trip. There are so many amazing restaurants to try in Bali that it is hard to go wrong. However, those listed are a sure thing.

Warung Little Bird, Sanur (pic above) – Cheap and cheerful. Warung Little Bird is very popular because the food is good, the beer is cold and the staff is awesome. They even have live music nights. There isn’t any air conditioning…just drink more beer. We ended up eating here twice. We even met a couple from Red Deer, Alberta hanging out there.

Pork Schnitzel

Warung Schnitzel, Ubud – Evan’s favorite restaurant in Bali. Amazingly fresh schnitzel is on the menu with your choice of sauce. Make sure to make a reservation.

Dinner at Boga Sari

Warung Boga Sari, Ubud – This tiny warung is nestled within the temple of a chef’s home on the main road in Ubud. We ended up eating here twice. Both times were excellent. Plus it is super duper cheap. (Mei Goreng photo above is from Warung Boga Sari as well.). Dinner for 3 with beers was $15 CAD before tip.

Chez Gado Gado

 Chez Gado Gado, Seminyak – Enjoying a dinner while watching the sun set over Seminyak beach is a glory to behold. Chez Gado Gado serves up high end food in a beautiful setting. Prices are $$$ but food and service are great. Our dinner for 3 with a pitcher of sangria was $123 CAD before tip.

Bali Nachos

Ginger Moon, Seminyak – Asian fusion cuisine at great prices. The Bali nachos and the suckling pig steamed buns were my favorites from their sharing menu. So delicious. One of the best meals we had in Bali. Reservations recommended.

Ribs in Sanur

 Warung Coconut Tree, Sanur – Owned by the same people as Warung Little Bird, Warung Coconut Tree is another great option in Sanur. Evan and I really enjoyed their barbecued pork ribs. Very yummy and inexpensive.

Sauteed Wok Curry Rice

Melting Wok Warung, Ubud – A busy little restaurant serving up an ever changing menu, Melting Wok Warung is definitely a place to check out. You NEED reservations, though, because it is tiny and very popular. Dinner for 3 with drinks was $26 CAD before tip.

PIzza at Island Cafe

Island Cafe, Seminyak – Great Italian food and a great Italian as host. While they are still in startup mode, Island Cafe is worth a visit. Great decor and food. Evan gives the pizza two thumbs up and Dewey and I enjoyed our meals as well (risotto…yum!). Next visit I will order the grilled vegetable salad. Luigi brought us a taste of it and it was amazing.

So many great restaurants and so little time. These were the ones we were most happy with. Don’t worry, there were quite a few that did NOT make it on this list. Generally, food that you get at attractions is meh at best so know that going in. We used Trip Advisor extensively when looking for restaurants. I suggest you download their app and then download the Bali guide so that you can see reviews offline.
