Eat and meet


Given its popularity with tourists, Legian has a wide range of eateries catering to most tastes. It's a tourist heavy scene and for finer dining we'd be angling for Seminyak.

  • Warung Yogya
    4.5 stars

    Delicious, cheap local food

    Jalan Padma Utara

    Prices here are not much different from that of a normal warung, but the setting is ever so slightly more upmarket and as a result, the tourists flock here. The food is absolutely delicious and for the price, it is an absolute bargain. Most people elect to eat nasi goreng, mie goreng or nasi campur ... read more

  • Swish Bar and Restaurant
    4.5 stars

    Fantastic coffee

    Jalan Sahadewa

    The coffee here is expensive by Bali standards, but there is a reason. For people that know good coffee, this is the place to come because the coffee here is fantastic. The Australian owner was trained by a world champion barista and uses a La Marzocco machine to extract perfect shots from fresh ... read more

  • Bamboo Warung
    4 stars

    Cheap local food in a Western setting

    Jalan Werkudara

    We'd like to say this is a favourite among backpackers, but it's not as busy as many other establishments in Legian, and that's odd. This should be a backpacker favourite as the tasty meals are generous in size and prices are as close to local as is possible without it being overrun by locals – ... read more

  • Wayan and Friends
    3.5 stars

    Café serving quality food

    Jalan Padma

    The delightful Wayan and Friends has been around serving quality food for years and is a favourite among returning tourists from around the world. Things are a little more upmarket here than many other places in Legian with gourmet sandwiches and a more pleasant setting where beer is not the focus. ... read more

  • Bali Bagus
    3.5 stars

    Cheap drinks

    Jalan Padma Utara

    The order of the day here is standard tourist fare and cheap drinks. In happy hour, the large beers are sold for prices difficult to find anywhere else. Not surprisingly given the cost of the booze, Bali Bagus is a very popular spot for a mid-afternoon refreshment and burger. It's not a fancy place ... read more

  • The Legend
    3.5 stars

    Pub-style meals and drinks

    Jalan Sahadewa

    The Legend is a long-established watering hole serving pub-style meals at reasonable prices. At night the vibe is jovial due its packed nature and the fact that just about everyone is drinking. The Legend gets packed, especially in high season and attracts a raucous, oft-Australian crowd. A ... read more

  • Legian Pub
    3 stars

    Popular for beer and Mexican food

    Jalan Padma

    The Mexican food and beer is what make this place extremely popular, predominantly among middle-aged Australian tourists. It's an odd place in that it looks like many of the other places around town, but charges about 20% more for beer while still retaining a decent crowd of loyal followers. ... read more

  • Pedro's Flying Piano
    3 stars

    Best fondue in Bali

    Jalan Werkudara

    The name starts a journey into something a little bit different for Bali. Come here for some European dishes and chat with friends about how on earth a place could get such a bizarre name. The cosmopolitan menu consists of a mix of pizza, pasta and Swiss favourites and allows those from all corners ... read more

  • Uncle Norm's
    3 stars

    A favourite watering hole

    Jalan Melasti

    You can't deny the masses their favourite watering holes, but this place is popular because it is popular. Uncle Norm's charges a bit more for its beer and food, but has many of the same characteristics as the other places around this part of Legian -- normal tourist meals such as burgers and pasta ... read more

  • Posers
    3 stars

    High-profile pub

    Cnr Jalan Padma & Padma Utara

    As the name suggests, this place has a high profile right on the corner of two very busy roads and is therefore a place that feels right in the thick of it. With its comfortable streetside seating in the heart of Legian, Posers makes for a good people watching spot to watch everything slide right ... read more
