Eat and meet


It's a vast area and you won't struggle to find basic Indonesian food at most of the beaches. Resorts can be home to exceptional meals as well. Here are a few of the better spots that grabbed our fancy.

  • Single Fin
    4.5 stars

    Our favourite

    Uluwatu overlooking the beach

    This cliff-hugging bar and restaurant has breathtaking views over the surf break below and it is easily our favourite place around Uluwatu for a sundowner. The cocktails are a fraction of the price you'll pay at five-star resorts offering similar views – the 65,000 rupiah mojito wasn't too strong ... read more

  • Buddha Soul
    4 stars

    Excellent food

    Jalan Labuan Sait, Padang Padang

    We ate at this new addition to the Bukit collection of restaurants within a few weeks of their initial opening, and the kitchen was still finding its feet. They sent out our chicken and mango salad without the chicken, for instance, but the meals when right were absolutely delicious, with an ... read more

  • Kat's Kitchen
    4 stars

    Excellent Thai food

    Jalan Raya Uluwatu 132
    T: (0361) 272 8600

    Kat's Kitchen is a sleek, modern, air-con space with the ambience of an upmarket Thai restaurant in the West, though diners can also sit outside where the feel is more casual but still impressive. The menu boasts a full range of Thai specialities at good prices covering both lunch and dinner. When ... read more

  • Cafe Moka
    4 stars

    One stop coffee shop


    Café Moka is part of a chain of Bali bakeries that serves up decent coffee and a range of delicious pastries. It's a good place to stop for breakfast a quick coffee or to just lounge and sponge the free WiFi. The croissants are among the best you'll find in Bali (though that's rather a low ... read more

  • Yeye's Warung
    4 stars

    Definitely worth a try.

    Padang Padang

    Just across the river and up the hill in a southwesterly direction from the Padang Padang carpark is Yeye's Warung. It's an impressively designed restaurant for this part of Bali and is spread across a number of relaxing individual pavilions and one large main one. Adding to the ambience is the ... read more

  • Surfer's Warung
    4 stars

    Typical surfer hangout


    San Diego native Matty ensures Surfer's Warung in the Uluwatu area is up to scratch by making sure the beer is very cold, the food is prepared hygienically and the ambience is pleasant. It's a typical surfer hangout with pool table, surf videos on the massive flat screen TV and a decent bar for ... read more

  • Trattoria Uluwatu
    3 stars

    Good breakfasts

    In front of Pink Coco Hotel, Padang Padang
    T: (0361) 822 7741

    Trattoria's latest offering down on the Bukit has a similar menu to the other branches, and is set in a large, airy space with an emphasis on the colour ochre. We ate here within a few days of their opening, and the staff were still working out how to pull it all together, but the full breakfasts ... read more

  • Ulu's
    3 stars

    Thai staples

    Padang Padang

    If you're looking for something a little different down on the Bukit, Ulu's delivers an interesting Thai menu, though the food may disappoint true Thai food lovers Be wary of any restaurant serving any dishes in half pineapples or coconuts is generally a mantra worth living life by. The food is a ... read more
