Eat and meet

Between Lovina and Pemuteran

The largest concentration of eateries can be found in Kalibukbuk, so if you opt to stay in one of the outlying villages you'll probably find yourself trekking into Kalibukbuk for a feed.


Serving vegetarian food, Akar espouses a philosophy of sustainability and tries to build this into every aspect of its operation from cheap water bottle refills to the promotion of local village products. The array of salads here is sensational and the healthy tapas just the thing for a quick snack. This place knows what health conscious Westerners want and delivers it with...

Warung Rasta

Rasta has a relaxed, laid back vibe to it, with chilled large Bintangs being delivered glass optional. There are a handful of deckchairs out front should you prefer your food and drink laying down and we found the staff to be an especially chatty and friendly (if woefully hungover) bunch of people.

Zigiz Bar

Local warungs

You probably won't find any tourists eating there, but the food is tasty local fare and the prices cannot be beaten. If you want to try authentic Indonesian food, come here and order a martabak or bakso which should set you back between 5,000 and 10,000... Read our full review of Local warungs.

Despite (or perhaps because of) the incredibly large menu, the food is really quite mediocre and the prices here really don't match the quality of the food. On the upside, families might find comfort in the large range of offerings for children who lean towards... Read our full review of Tropis Bar.
