Top eight restaurants in Ubud and Seminyak, Bali.
Bali has so so many good restaurants it’s crazy! Literally, throughout the whole island, there’s an uncountable amount of good restaurants where one can dine at. It is definitely a foodie’s paradise destination. You can find literally any type of restaurant, for any occasion, for the best prices! From the cutest vegan boho brunch spots to the yummiest Michelin star experiences, here are my eight top restaurants in Ubud and Seminyak, Bali.
One: Locavore – Ubud
Although this restaurant is a little on the pricier side, especially considering that most restaurants in Bali are super affordable, it is definitely worth the visit and hence why it’s my number 1. A Michelin starred tasting experience that’s well suited for both veggies and carnivores. The service in this restaurant is just like no other I’ve experienced. There’s just an abundance of food coming at you made from the freshest, most organic Balinese products. However, due to its popularity, it’s really hard to find a reservation. I would suggest booking well in advance! In other words, a 10/10 from me!
Two: The Sayan House – Ubud
The Sayan restaurant is an Asian and Latin based cuisine right in the heart of the Sayan river in Ubud. Other than it’s incredibly beautiful environment, it also serves the yummiest tacos I’ve had in my life. A close number 2 on my list. If you like the Latin infusion to the Japanese dishes, look no further as this restaurant is oozing with delicious food. The ambience is super chic yet casual and the service is just delightful! Again, a 10/10 from me!
Three: Merah Putih – Seminyak
Merah Putih restaurant is based in Seminyak and offers an authentic Balinese experience. Moreover, Merah Putih is amongst the most popular restaurants in Seminyak, and I fully understand why. I have mentioned Merah Putih in a few other posts and there’s a reason; it’s just genuinely really really good! There’s just so much taste in all of their dishes, it’s like a party for your palette, and there’s vegan options too. Although popular, you won’t find too much trouble reserving a table so no need to stress way in advance. If you do visit, I recommend with all my being the lobster dumpling, a 10/10 from me!
Four: Hanging gardens – Ubud
The Hanging gardens lies on the priciest side of Bali’s restaurants. However, you’re not only paying for excellent food made by famous chefs, but you’re also paying for spectacular views from the deepest depths of Ubud’s jungle! You can visit the Hanging Gardens restaurant for lunch and/or dinner. Most importantly, if you’re a truffle lover too, then look no further than enjoying their truffle angel hair pasta. It’s just, oh my goodness.
Five: Sarong Bali – Seminyak
Based and located in the heart of Seminyak, this South-East Asian/Indian restaurant is a definite winner. It’s menu is mostly curry based, so it satisfies vegan, veggie, fish and carnivore choices. Despite its popularity, you won’t find it hard to reserve a table here either. However, do call a few days ahead for no surprises. My recommended dishes are:
Six: The Coffee Cartel – Seminyak
This little brunch spot is the typical vegan boho inspired restaurant you tend to see on social media. I actually found this spot on Instagram and boy was I happy about that! Situated in Seminyak, this brunch hot spot offers a variety of yummy dishes, and its vegan friendly. In addition, I’m a firm lover of acai bowls and Coffee Cartel’s acai bowls are the bomb. A must try!
Seven: Copper rooftop – Ubud
Copper rooftop restaurant offers an authentic Balinese dining experience with live Balinese entertainment to enjoy whilst dining. I recommend tasting the dish of the day while enjoying a beautiful night out on the terrace. Since it’s outdoorsy, there will be your fair share of tiny creatures flying around so just a heads up!
Eight: W hotel – Seminyak
The W hotel is probably the most popular brunch spot in Seminyak on Sundays. With a beach front view and endless infinity pools, the food is just a small part of the experience! And to be clear, the food is just absolutely amazing. A definite must for a Sunday brunch, but do reserve well in advance.
