Jalan Double Six

While Jalan Double Six is a continuation of Jl Arjuna, many refer to the whole stretch as Double Six. It's clustered with everything from very late-running dodgy bars to tshirt shops and cafes. Watch out for holes in the pavement!

  • Crystal Palace
    4.5 stars

    Our favourite beach shack

    Beachfront, north of Double Six

    Just to the north of where Jalan Double Six hits the beachfront you'll find the very aptly named Crystal Palace. Regular live bands add to what is already a really good vibe, making this a place that is very easy to feel right at home in. There is both lazy seating right on the beach alongwith some ... read more

  • Warung Melati
    4.5 stars

    Superb Indonesian food

    Jalan Double Six

    Warung Melati serves quite possibly the tastiest Indonesian food you will ever try -- it is absolutely sensational. It's a favourite hang-out for the local expat crowd and some of the characters that pass through can be downright pretentious, but if you can ignore that, this is a marvellous spot ... read more

  • Cocoon Beach Club
    3.5 stars

    Breezy beachfront restaurant

    Jalan Double Six
    T: (0361) 731 266

    Relative newcomer Cocoon has lifted the vibe of the Double Six neighbourhood quite drastically. The breezy restaurant located on the street across from the beach boasts an inviting pool with day beds and deck chairs outside, while the two-floor restaurant is all smooth concretes, curves, natural ... read more

  • Warung Murah
    3.5 stars

    Tasty food at low prices

    Jalan Laksmana, Seminyak (next door to Cafe Bali)

    I kicked off a series on cheap Indonesian food in Seminyak a while back and am continuing with a little post on Warung Murah, which translates, literally, as cheap roadside restaurant. Located on busy Jalan Laksmana/Oberoi/Eat Street, it’s actually better than roadside, being a proper ... read more

Jalan Laksmana

Affectionately known as "Eat Street" Laksmana is packed with excellent restaurants and cafes. It goes through a few name changes, with Kayu Aya and Oberoi often used interchangeably, but say Laksmana and your cabbie will know where you are headed.

  • Wah Wah Gourmet Burger Winebar
    4 stars

    Jalan Laksmana 11
    T: (0361) 736 585

    A $30 burger in Bali? Never thought I'd be doing that, but that's just what I did at this slick burger and wine bar down near the Legian Hotel. Was it worth it? I'd go as far as to say this was one of the best burgers I've ever had — certainly not the biggest by any stretch of the imagination, ... read more

  • Sea Circus
    4 stars

    Whimsical and cute

    Jalan Laksmana 22
    T: (0361) 738 667 / (0878) 6077 1754

    With its dream-coloured glass louvre windows sitting pretty on Jalan Oberoi Sea Circus looks scrumptious from the outside alone. Inside, the white interior with vibrant turquoise accents and touches such as flowers in old bicarb of soda cans lends a carefree, beachfront feel, though the spot is off ... read more

  • KuDeTa
    4 stars

    A Bali beachside institution

    Jalan Kayu Aya 9
    T: (0361) 736 969

    This Bali beachside institution, seemingly always being improved in some way, continues to pull the crowds and is still among the best spots to head for a sunset drink on the island. But make that a pricey drink, served alongside a mixed crowd. The food here is actually excellent, but again, with ... read more

  • Trattoria
    4 stars

    Good value, tasty pizzas and pasta

    Jalan Laksmana

    A Seminyak-mainstay that continues to grow in popularity, Trattoria serves Italian food such as pizza, pasta and meat dishes to crowds of people that know good food when they eat it. This is not refined dining by any stretch of the imagination, but the food is wholesome, good quality and cooked to ... read more

  • Grocer and Grind
    4 stars

    Quality Western café

    Jalan Laksmana

    Grocer and Grind is part deli, part café, part expat haven. The food is what you might find at a better cafe back home for an interesting but delicious breakfast or lunch with a difference. The bread is good quality, the produce fresh and the dishes just hit the spot after eating one too many ... read more

  • Sisterfields
    3.5 stars

    Bright and breezy

    Jalan Kayu Cendana 7, Seminyak

    Sisterfields is a great breezy breakfast, lunch and coffee option located in the little Seminyak street cutting between Laksmana and Grocer and Grind. ... read more

  • Earth Cafe
    3.5 stars

    Wonderfully vibrant food

    Jalan Laksmana 99,
    T: (0361) 736 645

    Earth Cafe has just a few tables and a bench but a lengthy menu of fresh, wonderfully vibrant food, and the air-con is a welcome and rare respite from the heat and dust outside on Laksmana. A great range of drinks as well as the free WiFi make this a good catch-up-on-email spot, but the food is too ... read more

  • Press Ban Cafe
    3.5 stars

    Hipster cafe

    Jalan Laksmana 50
    T: (0361) 730 486

    Just four tables are offered at this decidedly hipster vintage boutique and cafe, with a short but sweet menu of coffees, teas, sweet things and light lunches. Pull up a chair or lounge and soak up the atmosphere — the indoor tables are right in the middle of the vintage clothes, bags, shoes, ... read more

  • Cafe Zucchini/Zuttion
    3.5 stars

    Excellent coffee

    Jalan Oberoi 47
    T: (0361) 736 633

    This easy to miss spot on Laksmana is another stop-while-you-shop joint, with excellent coffee, smoothies, baked items and light fare. The small space has just a few tables, but manages to be welcoming and cute without being cutesy, thanks to replica floral oil paintings on the whitewashed rattan ... read more

  • Cafe Bali
    3.5 stars

    Great atmosphere

    Jalan Laksmana
    T: (0361) 736 484

    If I ever had a little wooden seaside cottage, I’d be asking Cafe Bali who did their decorating and getting their number. I love this place: it’s cute but not sickly sweet, a breezy blend of sophisticated and serene right bang in the middle of the disaster-construction zone that is Jalan ... read more

  • Red Carpet
    3 stars

    Popular for early and late drinks

    Jalan Oberoi 42c
    T: (0361) 737 889

    Red Carpet claims to have the best selection of champagne on the island. We admit that we've had a celebratory plate of oysters here, and they were exceptional (and as you'd expect, costly). But, we're not sure about a place that makes its staff dress in dated red outfits that are almost offensive ... read more

Jalan Petitenget

Jalan Petitenget makes a circuitous loop from Laksmana, eventually joining Batu Belig. You'll find some of Seminyak's fanciest restaurants here, grasping onto the last of the area's ricefield views.

  • Potato Head Beach Club
    4 stars

    Top-notch sunset spot

    Jalan Petitenget
    T: (0361) 737 979

    Potato Head Beach Club is one of the best sunset spots in Bali’s busy Seminyak, offering a sublime beachfront setting, comprehensive array of cocktails, a large swimming pool with a swim-up bar and several great options for dining into the evening. ... read more

  • Metis
    4 stars

    Sophisticated with paddy views

    Jalan Petitenget 6
    T: (0361) 737 888

    This sophisticated restaurant is off the beach but has paddy views instead, albeit with development and bright lights in the distance. Run by the former crew behind Warisan (which itself has been refurbished and is open for business again), Metis offers modern, light takes on French dishes, ... read more

  • Sarong
    4 stars

    One of our favourite spots for a splurge

    Jalan Petitenget 19x
    T: (0361) 737 809

    This is one of our favourite spots for a splurge meal in Bali. Well off the beach on increasingly popular Petitenget. The location doesn't have too much going for it but the sumptuous decor — think sweeping curtains, ornate mirrors, dark woods and flickering candles — makes a beach view ... read more

  • Gourmet Cafe
    4 stars

    Yummy light meals

    Jalan Petitenget 77A
    T: (0361) 8475 115

    This breezy and popular spot serves coffee with a bite and baked goods, as well as a range of yummy light meals such as sandwiches, mostly under 50,000 rupiah. Managed by the Bali Catering Company — the same gang behind Metis — the attention to detail on the food front really shows. Free WiFi ... read more

  • Biku
    3.5 stars

    For tea lovers, and more

    Jl Raya Petitenget 888, Seminyak
    T: (0361) 8570888

    Beautiful Biku has practically become a Bali institution for those seeking a relaxing retreat where you can sip on the best teas on the island. The food menu is top-notch as well and affordable — this is the sort of place you can go with a group and not panic about how much your portion of the ... read more

  • Sardine
    3.5 stars

    No-fuss but good menu

    Jalan Petitenget 21
    T: (0361) 738 202

    It’s not often you return to a restaurant in Bali to find it’s truly doing better than it was before; too often you have a lovely night out, return six months later and find that the fickle clientele has moved on, seduced by something shinier and trendier that has opened down the road. So it ... read more

  • Naughty Nuri's
    3.5 stars

    Ribs and booze

    Jalan Batu Belig 41
    T: (0361) 847 6722

    Ubud legend Naughty Nuri's has a second branch tucked away on Batu Belig, with pretty much the same menu on offer. Differences are minor — the Cosmopolitan, for instance, is served in a martini glass instead of the impressive pint you get in Ubud. But the ribs are just as delectable as are the ... read more

  • La Lucciola
    3.5 stars

    Relaxed fine dining

    Petitenget, Seminyak
    T: (0361) 730 838

    Italians do all the important things in life well – shoes, bags and food. Most people enjoy Italian food, but it can sometimes be too heavy for a tropical climate. Bali institution La Lucciola, located a stone’s throw from Petitenget temple on one side, and the thundering Indian ocean on the ... read more

Jalan Raya Seminyak

This is just a continuation of Jalan Legian and forms the main north south road through Seminyak. Heavily trafficked, this is more of a shopping strip than eating, but there are a few reasonable options to choose from.

  • Warung Ocha
    3.5 stars

    Delicious Indonesian and Western food. Free WiFi

    Jalan Raya Seminyak

    Warung Ocha is not your typical local warung -- it's a slick Western-styled place that serves both Indonesian and Western dishes. Normally, this means that one of the styles is favoured over the other and you either get jazzed up and ordinary tasting Indonesian food or downscale Western food. Here, ... read more

  • Skooby
    3.5 stars

    Roadside diner

    Near Bintang Supermarket, Jalan Raya Seminyak

    Skooby is a roadside diner selling burgers, hotdogs, French fries, sandwiches and croissants plus a range of refreshing juices to counterbalance the other products. It's a perfect spot to take the kids after stocking up on groceries at the nearby Bintang supermarket or to just stop in when ... read more

  • Ryoshi
    3.5 stars

    Great sushi

    Jala Raya Seminyak

    Ryoshi has a number of outlets throughout Bali and has been incredibly successful because of the freshness, quality and consistency of its food. In Seminyak, Ryoshi is in a large building with Japanese styling and offers a large selection of sushi, sashimi and noodles to the discerning crowds. ... read more

  • Cafe Seminyak
    3 stars

    Great food, atrocious coffee

    Jalan Raya Seminyak

    Another pleasant café located right next to the Bintang supermarket is Café Seminyak. It serves typical café fare such as coffee, cakes, sandwiches, burgers and breakfasts all at very reasonable prices. The food is good here and the expats doing their shopping at the Bintang next ... read more
