Nusa Lembongan

Eat and meet

Jungut Batu

Jungut Batu has a reasonable selection of eateries, front cheap warungs to quite fancy restaurants. Note the places on the headland are overpriced.

  • Indiana Kenanga
    4.5 stars

    Very special

    Jungut Batu Beach 56
    T: (0366) 559 371

    You can certainly eat well on a tight budget on Nusa Lembongan, but you can also successfully indulge in haute cuisine — you know, fancy food — at prices that are very good value by Western standards. The top spot to head on the island, we heard, is Ylang Ylang at Indiana Kenanga, which boasts ... read more

  • A good place to eat on Nusa Lembongan: Warung Bambu
    3.5 stars

    Eastern tip by the mangroves

    The silence is deafening, up here on the north of Nusa Lembongan. Further around to the east, where the surf thunders on the offshore reef, the constant hum could be drowning out anything. But here it’s just the occasional motorbike zipping past, the crunch of a seaweed farmer’s feet on the ... read more

  • Warung Boemboe Bali
    3.5 stars

    Vegetarian hit

    Jungut Batu

    Look out for the red wall adorned with unusual artwork to find this friendly little establishment. It offers the usual suspects of Western and Indonesian food and also has a pretty solid vegetarian section. Another table waxed lyrical about tofu balls they'd had the previous night (we had to ... read more

  • Jhony's and Wayan Coffee Shop
    3.5 stars

    Hidden away cafe

    Jungut Batu near the headland

    Right before you start out along the headland, there's a little lane running off to your left where you'll find the comfortable Jhony's and Wayan Coffee Shop. With both garden and indoor seating, real coffee and a bunch of Western and Indonesian light meals, this isn't a bad off-the beach option. ... read more

  • Scooby Doo
    3.5 stars

    Junk food and WiFi

    Beachfront, Jungut Batu

    Once you drag the staff away from the sports (surf heavy) TV, you'll discover Scooby Doo does burgers that are big and hearty and we'd certainly recommend them. Also good are the side salads, the pizzas however, less so. It's really pretty typical tourist fare here, but the beachside setting and ... read more

  • Ketut's Warung
    3.5 stars

    Thai with a Lembongan twist

    Jungut Batu

    You'll see signs dotted around the place for Ketut's Warung — follow enough of them and you'll find it. After deciding there was already enough Indonesian restaurants, Ketut did a Thai-cooking course and this is the result. It's certainly not what you'll get on a Bangkok soi, but Lembongan is ... read more

  • Warung 99 Meal House
    3 stars

    Good for lunch

    Jungut Batu

    Set in the centre of the village, this is a good spot to stop by for a nasi campur lunch, an iced cold drink and a spot of people watching. Dishes are mostly simple Indonesian fare — the servings are generous and the prices very reasonable. Popular with both locals and tourists and the warung ... read more

  • Warung Relax
    3 stars

    Cheap and tasty

    Jungut Batu waterfront

    This is a cheap Indonesian warung right on the waterfront down near where the fast boats from Bali land. What you get here is very simple: back to basics Indonesian fare at back to basics prices. Not worth a trek across the Bali Sea for, but if you're in the area and want to dodge the tourist ... read more

  • The Deck
    3 stars

    Pricey but great views

    Outside Batu Karang, Jungut Batu headland

    I’ll be honest: I’m a sucker for expensive cocktails, even when I know cheaper places are nearby. So on Nusa Lembongan, after a visit to the spa at Batu Karang, I couldn’t go past a stop at The Deck, its attached gleaming panini and cocktail place. Located right next to the path running along ... read more

  • Warung Made
    3 stars

    Simple Indonesian food

    Jungut Batu

    Warung Made is one of a few simple Indonesian warungs along the road to have put out chairs, umbrellas and an English-language menu. Open for breakfast through to dinner, the menu here had a fairly solid collection of typical Asian one-plate dishes, and there's also a nod to some typical Western ... read more

Mushroom Bay

Nusa Lembongan's best swimming beach also has some good spots for a meal. Best of all the views are free.

  • Cafe Bali
    4 stars

    Great views and good food

    Mushroom Bay Beach

    This large beachfront restaurant serves up some impressive dishes, both in Indonesian and international lines. Prices are very reasonable given the setting and this is easily the best place to eat on the beach. We had an exceptional tuna dish here, so exceptional we forgot the name of it! Good ... read more

  • Alam Nusa
    3.5 stars

    Friendly and good food

    Mushroom Bay village

    We're a big wrap on this place for its accommodation, but the food isn't half bad either. The menu is pretty comprehensive, both for lunch and dinner and, if you happen to have caught or speared some fish, they'll happily cook it up for you. Especially friendly staff, though it would be great ... read more

  • Adi's
    3 stars

    Cheap Balinese food

    Mushroom Bay village

    Adi's roped us in on the promise of good traditional Balinese cuisine though we're not sure how traditional it really was. Tradition aside, the food was good and very well-priced. There are not all that many places worth recommending to eat around Mushroom Bay, but this is one of them and it is ... read more

Western Nusa Lembongan

There are a handful of places scattered across the western bays and viewpoints. There are some of the better ones.

  • Seaweed Lounge (next to Beach club)
    3.5 stars

    Soon to be famous

    Next door to Beach Club, Sandy Bay
    T: (0828) 9700 6027

    Crammed into the eastern corner of Sunset Bay right beside Beach Club this new spot (as of July 2011) does mostly Western meals and snacks. While the menu claims that they're "Soon to be famous", we wouldn't be holding our breath on a quick resolution on that particular claim, though the prices are ... read more

  • Beach Club at Sandy Bay
    3.5 stars

    Pleasing lantern lit evenings

    Sandy Bay, Nusa Lembongan
    T: (0828) 9700 5656

    If Lembongan is a bit of a getaway from Bali, then the Beach Club at Sandy Bay is a getaway from the busy bit of Lembongan again... They offer a free pickup service, which makes it an easy choice for a pleasant half-day by the pool or surf away from the crowds. The pool is modest, but then so is ... read more

  • Warung Sunrise
    3 stars

    Great views

    Overlooking the Ceningan Strait

    We can't imagine this basic place is actually open for sunrise and we confess to not verifying that is person, but this is more of an afternoon spot anyway. Perched on the edge of the channel between Lembongan and Ceningan, this is an ideal vantage point to watch the seaweed harvesting and ... read more
