Crate Cafe Canggu – @cratecafe
Crate Cafe is one of the hottest spots off Batu Balong and rated one of the best restaurants in Bali for breakfast.
Offering not only delicious food, but a shop, a beautiful view and happening vibes. Definitely the place to be, this chill spot among the rice fields will keep you comfy for hours.
The Avocado Factory Canggu – @theavocadofactory
The Avocado Factory has not been open long and they’re taking no time at all in making a great name for themselves!
Any avocado lover or smoothie crusher will be in heaven at this little green hub. With the attentive, smiling staff and top quality food, they’re already up there with the best restaurants in Bali. Oh, and how cute is this chillin’ little avo!
Made’s Banana Flour Co. Canggu – @madesbananaflourco
The world’s 1st banana flour bakery – what more do you need to know.
Made’s serves up deliciously fresh banana pancakes, waffles and of course the best banana bread we’ve ever tasted! Conveniently located on Batu Balong, the main street in Canggu, we spent many a morning strolling down to kill our cravings!
Definitely one of the most unique and best restaurants in Bali for breakfast!
The Loft Canggu – @theloftbali
You’ll know the insta famous pink wall at The Loft as soon as you see it.
With the caption reading ‘You’ll see it when you believe it’ it’s hard not to miss. Definitely an Instagram number one for the best restaurants in Bali.
Serving up food as colourful as its walls it was one of the first places we visited in Canggu and it lived up to all expectations!
Garden Canggu By Pizza House – @gardencanggu
Selling huge, delicious wood fire pizza and the best smoothies, this place has it all.
The summery salads and fruity drinks are perfect for the daytime. Or the cosy lighting and tasty pizzas set the scene in the evening. The vintage style furniture and shack style roofs make it a really cool place to hang out with friends.
After food, there’s a bar to chill and have a drink with good vibes and pretty lights.
Copenhagen – @copenhagencanggu
You don’t have to be Danish to appreciate the work of Copenhagen Canggu.
From the cafe design, to the tick box menu, this cutely decorated breakfast and lunch spot is incredible!
We highly recommend the smashed avo on sourdough with boiled egg and homemade pickled onion. Oh and don’t leave without trying their famous Nordic cinnamon rolls!
Funky Pancakes – @funkypancakesbali
The name pretty much says it all!
This recently opened pancake haven brings the soul and funk into Canggu. With its vegan based healthy, sweet & savoury options, you could take in the vibes here for hours!
Don’t miss out on the signature ‘touch of Dutch’ pancakes – covered in peanut butter sauce, caramelised cantaloupe, and chocolate chips.
Gerua Indian & Multi-Cuisine – @geruamulticuisine
Let’s talk curry…
So if you’re looking for an Indian curry in Bali they’re pretty hard to come by. Which is why Gerua Indian & Multi-Cuisine on Batu Bolong is such a hit!
Their traditional Indian curries served with rice, raita and naan are to die for. We can strongly recommend their Aloo Gobi or Daal Fry to kick that curry craving!
Bottega Italiana Bali – @bottegaitalianabali
A quirky hipster Italian restaurant serving delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner.
With the choice of fresh deli sandwich or nutella filled pastries, it’s a great spot to sit and watch the world go by.
We spent many mornings tucked up in the corner of this popular Canggu restaurant, fulfilling our sweet tooth cravings and catching up on work.
Ji Restaurant Canggu – @jirestaurantbali
Ji Restaurant Canggu is one of the most beautifully designed restaurants we’ve visited and home to the best Japanese cuisine in Canggu.
The style is super authentic and the stone staircases and marble worktops really give the place a cultural feel. AND THE FOOD, well the food has completely made us fall in love with Japanese cuisine.
Ji Restaurant Canggu has really set a high standard for us now and they had dishes our taste buds will never forget.
MyWarung Canggu – @mywarung
MyWarung is one of our favourite evening Canggu restaurants.
It has such chilled vibes and presents the fine dining experience with a hipster twist. The vegan red curry is insane and we may even use it for our anniversary date. This successful chain also has a few spots dotted around Bali!
Gypsy Kitchen & Bar Canggu – @gypsy_bali
A shabby chic, vintage heaven! This place really is beautiful and stood out with its evening chilled vibes, good music and warm lighting.
You can sit inside or outside and enjoy the relaxing ambience. The food was really tasty and super quirky.
We didn’t know what to expect when we ordered a whole roasted cauliflower but it came out beautifully presented and tasted so damn good!
One of the best restaurants in Bali for evening ambience!
Coffee Cartel Seminyak – @coffeecartelbali
One of our favourite food and coffee spots in Bali let alone Seminyak.
Not only is the food delicious and the decoration so pretty, but the staff couldn’t be friendlier and more helpful! Plus they can put selfies on your coffee. If you get the chance to visit Coffee Cartel give them a high 5 from us!
Strawberry Fields Seminyak – @strawberryfieldsbali
Strawberry Fields is one of the coolest spots in Seminyak with the prettiest food selection on offer.
Known for its beautifully decorated smoothie bowls and flashy drinks selection, we went a little fruity and overdosed on every strawberry flavoured option on the menu.
Everywhere in Bali makes pretty looking food, but we think Strawberry Fields was the prettiest we found.
Nalu Bowls Seminyak – @nalubowls
The original king of the smoothie bowl, nothing we tried came close to the bowls that Nalu Bowls have to offer.
Not to forget that super chilled outside shot everybody looks for. Nalu Bowls are also dotted around other places in Bali.
Shelter Seminyak – @shelterseminyak
Just upstairs from Nalu Bowls is one of the coolest, greenest places to eat in Seminyak.
Shelter dishes up some of the tastiest burgers and fruit smoothies, whilst displaying some awesome and inspirational travel murals on its iconic white and green walls.
Sea Circus Seminyak – @seacircus
This famous colourful wall art at Sea Circus spread across Instagram in an instant.
Believe us when we say though, the food is just as impressive as the artwork. Sea Circus have nailed a unique style at their quirky diner cafe ranking high as one of the best restaurants in Bali.
Neon Palms Seminyak – @neonpalmsbali
A sister chain to Sea Circus and located basically next door!
Neon Palms is essentially a cocktail bar come tapas restaurant and the perfect place to chill and take in the Seminyak vibes.
With its recognisable colourful walls and awesome cheetah mural this is a spot definitely not to be missed and one of our favourite chilled Bali restaurants!
Fatboy’s The Burger Bar Bali – @fatboys_bali
Proudly established as the only burger bar in Bali, Fatboy’s serves up the buns that will put you into retirement.
With a typical American diner layout, and some of the best burger and fries combo’s we’ve ever tasted, if you’re craving a juicy pattie this is your spot!
With chains dotted around Asia we’ll definitely be keep our eyes peeled for other Fatboy’s on our travels.
Doncaster Eatery Seminyak – @doncaster.eatery
Located just off the main strip in Seminyak, Doncaster Eatery is a hidden gem!
With its beautiful interior design and simplistic menu we spent an evening at Doncaster Eatery dining in style. It’s classy, chic and the food follows. Their kale salad was the yummiest salad we’ve tried in Bali. T
hey nailed the Balinese style by adding the delicious tempe chips. You must try the signature cocktail if you head to Doncaster Eatery.
Mad Pops Seminyak – @madpopsbali
The strongest vegan ice cream is found at the one and only Mad Pops Bali.
Ok, so it doesn’t fall into the Bali restaurants category – but these guys have taken the ice cream world by storm. With their neon lighting making for a must have photo, you’d be Mad not to visit.
There’s also a Mad Pops in Canggu too!
The Savage Kitchen Berawa – @thesavagekitchenbali
The Savage Kitchen Bali is one of the cosiest spots in Berewa.
Easily one of the best restaurants in Bali, we visited just before sunset and had some of the tastiest vegan food of our lives.
The sun set behind us and the candles came out, and honestly we could have stayed there all night. Highly recommend their pumpkin and tofu steak!
Roti Daal – @rotidaalasia
After a very long time of not eating Indian food, all of our senses were screaming out loud when we walked into Roti Daal – the homestyle Indian restaurant.
The spices, herbs and vegetables were bursting with flavour amongst all the colourful choices of food. A thali is the perfect way to try all the different options on display and their curries and sauces are also all vegan and vegetarian friendly.
The selection of dishes remind your taste buds of how certain foods can be hugely complimented by the Indian home cooked spices. The food is unique, vibrant and like no other cuisine in the world.
The best Indian food in Bali!
Bali Bowls & Smoothies – @balibowlsandsmoothies
One of the tastiest and healthiest ways to start your day in Bali!
Bali Bowls & Smoothies set us up for a fresh day many a time during our stay in Canggu. With their banana and peanut butter smoothie bowls and fresh to death salad concoctions we couldn’t recommend them more!
Banh Mi & Beans Berawa – @banhmiandbeans
Fancy a little Vietnamese whilst in Bali?!
Banh Mi hits the spot every time with its traditional pate and coriander mix up served in fresh soft baguettes! To crush all your Vietnamese cravings whist sipping a fresh coffee on the side, this is one of our favourite Bali restaurants and lunch spots.
Cinta Cafe Berawa – @cintacafe
A modern cafe with an original Bali lookout.
Serving up all sorts of breakfast foods, from the traditional avo & eggs to some awesome smoothie bowls. You can also grab brunch burgers and pasta dinners at Cinta Cafe.
So if you’re looking for somewhere to chill amongst the rice fields in the Canggu/Berawa area then this spot is definitely one of the best restaurants in Bali.
Coffee N Oven – @coffee_n_oven
Coffee N Oven was our regular spot before or after the gym. Or if we needed our pie and mash fix!
A cute, quaint little spot just tucked up on the side of road, the name says it all.
From pastries to amazing smoothie bowls and of course some of the best coffee in Canggu. If you’re looking for something filling we can highly recommend the ratatouille pie and mashed potato!
Nude Canggu – @nudeincanggu
Nude is one of the longest players in the Canggu restaurants game!
A sure go to for all digital nomads its inside air-conditioned room is always popular whilst its outdoor stylistic approach is just as cool.
Serving up the healthiest and hippest breakfast, lunch and dinners, we had to check it out for our first ever charcoal burger bun as well as some of the best smoothies we’ve tried in Canggu.
Kembali Berawa – @kembalibumbak
An up and coming chic cafe selling the most delicious smoothies and advertising a broad menu.
We visited Kembali Berawa on UK’s Pancake Day and enjoyed sweet waffles and fluffy pancakes. It’s fair to say we did not walk away unsatisfied.
OPIA Dining Jimbaran- @opiabalidining
We couldn’t finish the blog without giving OPIA a mention!
We visited Opia for Valentine’s Day and not only was the food amazing, but the ambience and location was beautiful. If you’re looking for Bali restaurants to use as a wedding venue Opia is your place. Definitely one of the most romantic restaurants in Bali!
