Today Bali is drawing record crowds with a good majority of Aussies visiting so often they refer to it as their second home. Being a half Indonesian creation myself I have the pleasure of visiting quite frequently, but even though I’m VISITING the island every 6 months there is constantly new and exciting eateries popping up!

Bali has become so popular because it has something for everyone. You’ll find all kinds of travellers there, from the backpackers to the spiritual yogis, luxury travellers, to families and surfers. Because Bali’s tourism is so diverse it has adapted to cater to all, becoming a food lover’s haven.

There are authentic warungs, fine dining experiences and specialised restaurants, I have tried a great deal but the below keep me going back every single visit! Here are our top Restaurants in Seminyak!

My top 6 Restaurants in Seminyak

Zanzibar- Beachfront in Legian
http://www.zanzibarbali.com

They have a really good variety, with fresh seafood and huge salads. They also do a fairly good latte :). My favourite meal is the grilled fisherman’s basket, pictured below.

Zucchini- On Laksmana Street in Seminyak

Great salads and good breakfasts just like home. Go for your daily coffee right in the main hub of Seminyak.

Warung Ocha- On Seminyak Road in Seminyak
http://www.tripadvisor.com.au/Restaurant_Review-g469404-d1166804-Reviews-Warung_Ocha_s-Seminyak_Bali.html

This once was just a tiny authentic Indonesian warung that only served traditional food the traditional way (from the window) it has since renovated its space
and boasts a full a la carte menu in a relaxing setting ( which is good coming in from shopping the busy street) but still serves those yummy Indonesian favourites. It’s also SUPER cheap!

Warung Yogya- On Padma Utara in Legian
http://www.tripadvisor.com.au/Restaurant_Review-g608487-d1065868-Reviews-Warung_Yogya-Legian_Bali.html

I’ve been going here since I was 7 (now 24) and it hasn’t changed. It is authentic, real, home-style cooking for next to nothing ( literally everything on the menu is $2.00).
It is so tasty! Get the Nasi Campur ( Rice with assorted goodies).

Sea Circus- Just off Jalan Kayu Aya in Seminyak
http://seacircus-bali.com

An iconic little cafe in the heart of Seminyak with cute decor and amazing breakfast.  With inspiration from Melbourne cafe, this little space has earned its stop on the list for having amazing ‘Australia’ coffee and a killer breakfast menu. With global influences and fresh local produce, this cafe is a must-do!

Sushimi- On Jalan Dhyanapura in Seminyak
http://www.sushimibali.com

This is one of my more recent discoveries, yet have already managed to eat here a bunch of times! I constantly get cravings for Sushi when I’m travelling and this place always manages to hit the spot. With some of the freshest Sashimi and rolls I have ever tasted (and I’ve been to Japan) and specials on Friday, this place is perfect when you need that lighter option. My favourites are the gyoza and salmon salad, they also stock my favourite cold pressed juice from “The Seed”.

The Library

I love this place because of the added quirk, the styling and wall hangings give this place such a good vibe! It is usually fairly quiet during the days and the service is super fast! The tables are nice and big for working and if you sit upstairs you will probably have the floor to yourself.

Revolver

Hidden up an alleyway, if you didn’t know it existed you would most certainly miss it. Two words. THE COFFEE. Speak to anyone and they will say “The coffee is as good (if not better) as in Australia”.  I only ever worked here for a few hours at a time as its quite dark and lacks air flow- still one not to miss, though!

Sisterfields

Sisterfields represents the iconic café culture of Australia, bringing a love of good food and great coffee to the heart of Seminyak, Bali. This is probably my next favourite, the food here is fantastic- get the Vietnamese Roll! Although quite busy and a tad noisy, I love to sit at the bench that overlooks the street and people watch in between writing! It really has a fantastic vibe!

Batik

Opened in late April this restaurant sits in the center of Laksmana (Kayu Ayu) in Seminyak.  I was lucky enough to get a tour with the manager who went through all the steps in the design process. It is a mix of traditional Indonesian elements and furnishings with hints of Scandi and French. (full restaurant review coming soon).

What I really liked about this place was the inspiration and atmosphere. The days are fairly quiet so you can work away in a stunning environment.

Grocer and Grind

The flagship store* now 10 years old was once across from a rice field now it is in the hub of the trendy Seminyak tourist district. Always busy with an upbeat funky vibe that brings a good atmosphere. Choose from dining in the free flow breeze or a full air-conditioned room, with food to die for this is definitely my top pick!

(Note* There are multiple Grocer and Grinds on the Island)

  3. These all look so delicious! I would love to try that burger from the Vegos – Earth Cafe. I will have to keep this in mind if I ever travel there.

  4. I hope to make it to Bali one day and check out as many of these restaurants as possible but I do love the sound of the Zanzibar restaurant

  5. Beachfront in Legian sounds so good. I am up for anything with fresh seafood. It’s my favorite kind of food.
