Despite its traditional, laid-back island lifestyle, Bali has become a great destination for delicious and quality food.

From sophisticated fine-dining experience to a more localized, warung style, down to earth eatery.

Here is our Top 10 picks:

1- Sardine – Petitenget, Kerobokan

One thing I always feel after dining in Sardine is the fresh feeling. It’s the fish and the seafoods. You know when a good fish or seafood are freshly caught, it feels good not just in your mouth, but also in your stomach. Apparently they get them fresh every day from the local fish market. But it’s not only their fish that’s fresh, they actually have their own organic vegetable gardens somewhere up in Bedugul.

The ambiance of the restaurant was really nice, warm and mellow at night. It’s definitely a romantic place for a date. Overlooking a stunning rice fields view, what more can you ask for?

Sardine is open daily from 11:30am to 1am. Last order for dinner is 11pm.

2- Metis :

MÉTIS Restaurant and Gallery is a French restaurant. They welcome guests to enjoy an entirely sensory dining experience borne of the pleasures of living. The 350-seat restaurant, bar, lounge and private dining is open for lunch and dinner.

Chef Nicolas ‘Doudou’ Tourneville, formerly of Kafe Warisan , brings his legendary talent and culinary artistry to the table with a masterful combination of French Mediterranean cuisine. Flawless service in one of Bali’s most elegantly sophisticated settings is just the beginning of this seduction into the depths of the five senses.

MÉTIS is as fresh and sumptuous as the cuisine that graces its tables. We will be really happy about food quality and such an impressive wine Menu.

If you are looking for a big, good and prestigious restaurant, this is the best adress.

3- Canvas Bistro :

After months of anticipation the CANVAS Bistro finally opens to complete the TOWNHOUSE experience.

Top International Chef Adriano Ricco brings more than 18 years of cooking experience in some of the world’s most renowned kitchens to his new rôle as executive chef with the TOWNHOUSE group. CANVAS at TOWNHOUSE opens daily from 7pm until 12am and is perfect for post cocktail dining or pre party feasting at Bali’s hottest new venue. Lunch will be served starting early spring. The style of the restaurant is New York bistro chic.

4- Bow :

Bow restaurant, located in Petitenget (North of Seminyak) offers a combinaison of lovely athmosphere and great food at very reasonnable prices. The design is inspired from a mix of Bali and Caribean style. A lot of local and expat artists are exposing their work there, making the Bow’s design very personalised. The owner Jan who has been living in Bali for over 15 years decided to make its restaurant a second house for his visitors. The most of his clients are regulars. There is a terrace upstairs with a fantastic rice field view.
The staff was very friendly and professional.

The variety of menu is impressive (Mediteranean, French, Morrocan, Australian, Caribbean …). It’s the best quality/price deal. I recommand for starters the prawan mango salad, frist course the Angus beef burger and for dessert the chocolat surprise, it’s so yummy! They also serve a Brunch everyday, which is kind of unusual.

Bow restaurant is now open from 11 am to 11pm with warm and romantic lighting, a collection of African, classic Caribbean and Jazz music.

The ambiance, the quality of the food and the price make Bow restaurant our favorite!

5- Charlie :

Taking delight with details and impeccable attention to food and beverage, Charlie aims to please everyone’s hip pocket with a sensibly priced food and beverage menu.

With Executive Chef Jakartan, Meidy Zuhri at the helm, Charlie brings impeccable French technique and hotel training from the some the most notable restaurants in Dubai. Meidy was fortunate to cook alongside the top Chefs like Chef Alain Passard (Michelin star 3, la Arpege Paris) and Chef Philippe Labbe (Michelin star 2, Shangri-la Paris ).

At Charlie, Meidy has curated a menu of classic cosmopolitan bistro dishes with house specialties being meats of all sorts – from steaks to lamb shank to pork ribs. If you are not a big fan of meat, you’ll be pleased with the choice of fish and vegetarian dishes, such grilled seafood platter, spinach parmesan soufflé or saffron risotto.

As you would expect from the winner of the best new bar in Bali, Charlie takes its cocktails and drink service seriously. A huge slab of ice is the central focal point at Charlie. From this crystal cube Charlie bartenders carve great slabs of ice with a Japanese ice saw. This industrious effort overcomes the problems of ‘wet’ ice, ice that melts too quickly in the tropical climate and gives a seemingly watered down drink. Charlie drinks are refreshing and chilled to the bone. Charlie offers cocktail classics – beautifully executed renditions of traditional cocktails such as Martinis, Sours and Old Fashioned with a signature Charlie touch.

6- Mozaic :

Since it first opened in 2001, Mozaic has kept its standard and maintained its very well quality. This is the restaurant that probably has the best food in Bali. They have a set menu that includes the chef’s tasting and a discovery menu. In the discovery menu they are converting Balinese ingredients into a fine-dining experience, with still a classic French touch. It’s quite interesting that before you begin your meal, they will present a tray of all the local ingredients they will be using for your food. You can touch, smell and get used to them before eating them.

The settings of the restaurant were made as if you are eating in the high-end jungle of Ubud. Each course was perfectly flavored and beautifully plated. It will cost you a little bit more than any other restaurants, but its definitely worth it.

7- Sari Organik – Warung Bodag Maliah – Ubud

This is one unique place to eat. If you want to experience somehow the real Ubud, Warung Bodag Maliah is a good choice. Located in the middle of rice paddies, getting here takes about 15 minutes, and can only be done walking; well you could motorbike it, just a little tricky through the narrow dirt path. The walk is nice though, scenic rice paddies and coconut trees, it almost feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere.

The food are entirely home-made and organic. They have their own garden and farms just around the restaurant. You can also visit their farms and buy some fresh produce for you to take home. The fresh drinks and juices are very revivifying, must try!

8- Potato Head :

By the end of December 2010, Potato Head seted groundbreaking standards with the opening of its second venue in the Islands of the Gods, Bali. Potato Head Beach Club is an impressive elliptical amphitheatre, which is also home to an unprecedented selection of restaurants and bars taking influence from its former establishment on an amplified level.

Matching up to the splendor of its place, both establishments triumph in the gastronomy department by serving international cuisines and innovative cocktails brought to you by the dedicated chefs and mixologist.

Since introducing PHBC in 2010, both owners has successfully gained numerous international recognitions from various publications and medias. Known for its multi-cultural blend of gastronomy, libations and entertainment which imbues music, art and fashion at the same time, PHBC has given Bali and its visitors the best of island living with a memorable and fun experience.

You can not come to Bali without seeing this amazing view.

9- Locavore – Ubud

Newly opened last year in October 2013, this restaurant is already making the bush.

The word “locavore” was actually created not too long ago in San Francisco, 2005. It literally means somebody who is eating food that is only produced locally, within roughly 250km radius.

That seems to be the concept of this restaurant. The two chef owners have been working together over that past five years. At Locavore they are using seasonal local produce for fine European dishes, which is quite challenging. But looking at what customers have been saying, it looks like they are going to stay in the business for a very long time. Great food, produces locally, cheers to that!

10- La Finca – Batu Belig, Canggu

Walking into this outdoor Ibizan/Spanish Mediterranean restaurant gives you a pleasant, relaxed and rustic feeling. We came here for dinner on a non-busy weekday with no reservation. Everything was good. Staffs were nice even though some of them had no idea what was going on, atmosphere was very enjoyable and the food was delicious.

We ordered their in house special menu, the famous “Carne A La Piedra De La Finca”. It’s a fancy rib-eye steak. The staff will come to you with a really really hot stone and the rare meat. You will have to DIY the meat onto the hot stone, pretty interesting. It also comes with a tray of spices, sauces and herbs. Yummy!
