Best places to eat when in Bali, Indonesia
Here are some of the few places in Bali, Indonesia where you get tasty and delicious food to eat. If you are foodie or love food, than these place are a must to visit.
La Place Airside
Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport Departure Area, Denpasar, Indonesia
At Bali airport once you go through immigration La Place stands out right at the end after passing the duty free section. Their menus include fresh juices, shake, salad, Italian food etc filled with freshness and visible hygiene. The prices are typically airport prices reasonable. So have tried out their sandwiches trust me they look real planning and simple, but it taste amazing, must try the chicken hummus sandwich. Also they have some real fresh shakes but I believe they all had some content of mango syrup making it thick and yummy. (Must look for the sandwich though)
Trattoria Cucina Italiana
Trattoria Jalan, Seminyak Oberoi, Bali, Indonesia
Here I tried PAPPARDELLE VERDI AI FUNGHI (Homemade spinach pasta, in a mix of mushrooms cream sauce and chicken) it looked yum, they had served with some garlic bread. It is located in the most happening street in seminyak. Their Pizzas are to die for, unfortunately my diet didn’t allowed to taste it, but my friends could, and they recommend trying them out.
Seminyak Square, Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia
It’s the best place to get some chills to your taste bud. It’s the best yogurt ice cream one can try with amazing flavors ranging from vanilla to blueberry with unlimited toppings options. One must try the combination of vanilla yogurt ice-cream, with choco-pops, choco chips, choco syrup and nutella topping. This is the best ice cream I have tried till date. Well chocolate being my favorite so this is what I can suggest but you can surely try your favorite flavors and toppings. So once you get in pick a cup, small or large and start filling in, once you done go to cash counter and pay as per the weight. That’s the best self-service ice yogurt parlour I have visited.
AYANA Resort and Spa, Jl. Karang Mas Sejahtera, Jimbaran, Bali
Located on natural rocks 14 meters above the Indian Ocean at the base of AYANA Resort and Spa Bali’s towering cliffs, this innovative open-top Bali bar is the island’s most glam sunset and after-dark destination. Place is amazing it starts after 4:30pm, best for sunset view but it gets really hot out sitting there, as the place being humid and burning. Well it is compulsory for every individual to order a drink or so, as they would like to every table to have a minimum amount bill, considering it is a five star. Well here I didn’t order anything to eat as such, but their cocktails are real good to give a try.
Opening Hours: Beverages/ Snacks: 16:00-1:00 (until 2:00 on Friday – Saturday)
Jl. Pratama, Nusa Dua, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia
It is an amazing place with great Balinese food and interior; one must surely go and try out their authentic Balinese food especially chicken satay, tuna salad, and some fresh orange juice. They serve you with proper griller which will keep your satay warm till you eat your last bite. They also serve you in a very authentic traditional way, with some chilies, spring onion sticks around platted well. Well it’s a little pricey place, but worth it. Do try their dessert Dadar – Coconut Pancake with Vanilla Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce it is something different when it comes to sweet selection.
Jl. Kayu Aya, Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia
Honestly we ended up at this place as there was Cricket Final going on between India and West indies, as we had some cricket lover in our group so we landed up there to watch, so we were treated with welcome drink and one snack to each individual as complimentary service, which was okay to start with. We had tried ceaser salad, some pasta and few fresh orange juices, all tasted good but could have been tastier compared to what we had been eating in Bali from day one. The place was quiet and less crowded, in fact next to this is their other version resto bar, which was quiet happening with some karaoke going on and people having fun dancing.
Chiringuito Beachfront Dinning
Jl. Camplung Tanduk, Seminyak, Kuta, Kabupaten Badung, Bali, Indonesia
One of the must-visit places to go when you visit Bali. Magnificent view of the sunset, beautiful colorful lights at night, good food and excellent drinks! Definitely a good place to go for drinks and light bites with your friends! We had tried chicken satay, fried Calamari (culinary name for squid), orange juice and loads of beer. The food was good, in fact the view makes you forget your hunger and let you have more fun with the calm and serene beach right in front of you. You should come before 4 or 5 PM to get the bean bag seats with colorful umbrella.
Pantai Seminyak, Jl. Pantai Camplung Tanduk, Seminyak, Bali
As we happened to stay in Seminyak, we visited the beach more often so we got a chance to try some other place next to La Plancha, her again we had tried the same food, Satay Bumbum Kacang- chicken satay with peanut sauce which comes with steam rice, some good cocktails and beer again. Well as said before the place is good and bright, best time to visit is any time after 4:30 till night.
Jl. Camplung Tanduk, Seminyak, Bali
If you fond of sushis then you have come to the right place, well seriously speaking it was the first time that I myself tried sushi for the first time, and let me tell you it was yummilicious. Till now I was under an impression of sushi being raw but this place proved it wrong, it had a wide variety of sushi’ from chicken to fish from raw to cooked, so this place is for every individual to break their stereotype of “sushi being raw”. So the place is really cool, they have a small escalator moving around 360 and the kitchen being in the center where the chef are busy crafting the sushis. So you pick any sushi that you feel like or you can order from the menu too if you want to make sure of what you are trying. I would recommend to try the chicken burrito it is the best, and many other sushi with brown rice and chicken combination along with wasabi.
Jl. Pratama No. 66x Terora Tanjung Benoa, Badung, Bali, Indonesia
This place is located in Nusa Dua, it is a good place specially if you looking for decent and budget food. So we had tried Soto Ayam- an Indonesian version of chicken soup, is a clear herbal broth brightened by fresh turmeric and herbs, with skinny rice noodles buried in the bowl. It is served with a boiled egg, fried shallots, celery leaves and herbs, and is hearty enough for a meal. It was really delicious and yummy, it had good flavor of all vegetables and chicken broth. It is a typical Bali restaurant with authentic food and interior.
Queens of India
Jl. Kartika Plaza, Tuban, Bali, Indonesia
Jalan Raya Pratama No. 65 B, Tanjung Benoa, Nusa Dua, Kabupaten Badung, Bali, Indonesia
It was a typical Indian restaurant, so after 2-3 days when you start missing your home food, this is the best solution for that. We had a take away from here, but must say it tasted exactly like any other Indian restaurant food. We had taken the typical butter chicken, butter roti, dal tadka and paneer makhanwala. Nothing much to talk about, but yes when you miss Indian food then this is the apt place to eat.
Hotel Kumala Pantai, Jl. Legian, Legian, Bali
It was a typical Italian restaurant, with great Legain Beach view with outdoor sitting facing the beach. Here we experimented with some pasta and good fresh juices. Al Pesto pasta and Guava and Orange juice it was decent nothing great in taste but yes can say it was fresh.
KU DE TA
Jalan Kayu Aya No. 9 Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia
We happened to visit this place on a weekday which made it boring and silent; it is supposed to be the best place for dinning, sunset view and music. This place didn’t much impressed me, as there was nothing much to do for a person like me, too sophisticated crowd and not much choices for food, well I guess it’s a best place for people who would like to have a chilled beer, cocktail of mocktail.
Tanah Lot Sunset Terrace
Jl. Raya Tanah Lot, Beraban, Kec. Tabanan, Kabupaten Tabanan, Bali, Indonesia
Located in front of Tanah Lot Temple, where you can find unforgettable moment of Sunset in Tanah Lot tourist attraction. The visitor can find this place by walked as long as pathway that closes with Tanah Lot Temple area. As we were there in the morning, we had our breakfast there with Egg Omlette, chicken sandwich and some orange juice and coconut water. At this place you will find restaurant and cafe with terrace that provides the perfect setting to create the unforgettable moment of sunset. With beautiful panorama, you could enjoy luxurious breakfast, lunch, and lunch.
