Warung Sobat (1 & 2) Bali

By Jakarta100bars →
Warung Sobat is a cheap open-air restaurant serving a mix of Indonesian, Asian and Western food. They currently have 2 locations in Seminyak, one on Jalan Batu Belig (Warung Sobat I) and one in Kerobokan (Warung Sobat II). It is owned by a Balinese family. It is nicknamed the "canteen" by the French community in Bali, which makes up about 30% of Warung Sobat's customers. This is due to the casual and homelike atmosphere, the decent (yet unspectacular food), and the high number of regulars. I tried the second branch for diner with a friend. The place was almost full and it was not easy to get one of the two waiters attention. The menu is a long list of any dishes that you could possibly think of: Steaks, Pastas, Soups, Salads, Seafood, Asian and Indonesian favorites, etc... 

Warung Ocha - Cheap Eat (Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Warung Ocha is an "upgraded" warung at the intersection of Jalan Dyana Pura (where all the gay nightlife in Bali is located) and Jalan Raya Seminyak. It is clean, cute and offers good value-for-money. They used to be famous for their cheap Indonesian food buffet, but its quality has decreased (and its price increased) compared to other "real" warungs nearby. Now it is mostly tourists or local expats going there. They have a strategic location, great to watch people pass by if you sit on the street side. If you need more calm, they also have a courtyard area. Baguette Sandwich (Rp43,000++)

KZU - Cheap Healthy Restaurant Bali

By Jakarta100bars →
There are two KZU restaurants in Seminyak, one on Sunset Road and one on Jalan Drupadi. They are headed by a young Japanese Chef, Kazuya Takami. In both places, you will find the best selection of cheap food in Bali: Indonesian, Western, Japanese, Indian... The branch in Drupadi is famous for its Nasi Campur, while the other one has a larger menu with an outside barbecue. I usually visit KZU to eat some great healthy salads under 5$. Mixed Salad + Quinoa Salad = 32,000rp NET Overall : Very recommended if you are looking for an inexpensive place to eat healthy food in Seminyak. It is not fancy but the service is friendly and it is clean. KZU Restaurant (Nasi Campur) Jalan Drupadi 2 No 84, Seminyak, Bali , Indonesia KZU Restaurant and Grill Jalan Sunset Road 6 (opposite of Burger King) Phone number: +62 (0) 361 805 4252  or +62 (0) 878-6053-7373

Café Seminyak & La Boulangerie de Bali

By Jakarta100bars →
Café Seminyak is a popular restaurant on Jalan Raya Seminyak, strategically located next to Bintang supermarket. It also has a bakery/pastry shop called "La Boulangerie de Bali". My first impression of the café was not good. The staff was overwhelmed and it seemed there was no management inside. It was hard to get attention from the waitresses who were quite disorganized and not particularly friendly. I first ordered a Ricotta Salad, but I was told 5 minutes later there were no tomatoes left. I then asked for a Merguez Sandwich, and again 3 minutes later I was told there was no more baguette. Finally, I went for the Crepes Ham Cheese Mushroom and they were able to do it! Ham Cheese Mushroom Crêpe (Rp49,000+15% tax and service) In spite of this, I can understand the reasons behind the success of Café Seminyak. The menu is complete: They have French, Australian, American, Thai, Indian, Indian food and a long list of desserts, including home-made ice creams (se

Sundara Beach Club (Four Seasons Jimbaran)

By Jakarta100bars →
Sundara, the beach club attached to the Four Seasons Hotel in Jimbaran, opened in 2013 with the ambition of becoming the Ku De Ta of Southern Bali. They built it on the ruins of JPs, the previous beach restaurant of the hotel.  The owners spared no expenses to reach this objective. The designer team, also behind the Rock Bar in Ayana did a truly great job. Sundara is one of the best-looking restaurants I have seen in Bali. It is fancy and luxurious, but not too pretentious. It has an outside area with a long swimming pool, and an air-con area with a bar and comfortable leather sofas. You will get a nice view on Jimbaran beach, especially at sunset time. Before the opening, they brought in an army of foreign consultants for cocktails, wines, food, etc... Even now, they still have at least 3 foreigners to manage it: The Director of Operations, the Chef, and the Sommelier. The service is impressive. You are taken care of by friendly hostesses from the moment you step

Sun Shoot Café (Seminyak)

By Jakarta100bars →
Sun Shoot is a neighborhood restaurant/café popular with expats living in the Kerobokan area in Bali. It serves a long list of Western and Asian dishes that I found excellent for their prices. It is owned by an Australian guy who is also behind the nearby Tukit Villas . The service is quite good for such a small place: They even bring you cold towels on arrival.  Sun Shoot is always full on weekend nights. They have live music from time to time, and they also have a large screen TV to broadcast the most important sporting events.  Overall : Recommended for breakfast/lunch/dinner or for hanging out if you live nearby.  Sun Shoot Bali 

Malo's Restaurant (Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Malo's Restaurant, Bar and Pizzeria is located on Jalan Nakula, not too far from the new hotel TS Suites in Legian. It is owned by a Swiss national who has been living in Bali for over 20 years. The restaurant is quite popular with German expats, particularly those in their 50s/60s. They are attracted by the large choice of German and Swiss dishes, and by the cheap price of alcohol. A cocktail will only cost you a little above Rp50,000 in Malo's! I live not far from Malo's and I see it full almost every night. The menu is quite long and cheap, featuring all typical popular dishes (pastas, pizza, sausages, beef, pork) with a large selection of meats (see sample menu below). The price for a meal is normally under Rp100,000 (a little more if you take beef). A nice feature of the restaurant is that you get a free frozen Margarita shot as a welcome drink. I tried the Ricotta & Spinach Raviolis (Rp48,000) and the Beef Filet Chef's Special (Rp128,0

Cosmic Diner (Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Cosmic Diner is an American-style restaurant with 2 locations in Bali: One on Sunset Road next to McDonald's, and one in the new Lippo Mall on Jalan Kartika Plaza. It is themed around 1960's USA with the use of bright, contrasting colors, oldies tunes, vintage posters on the wall and mostly American classic dishes (burgers, pancakes, waffles).

Swiss Restaurant (Legian, Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Swiss Restaurant is located on Jalan Legian, about 200m from the new Mercure on Jalan Padma. The venue is rather noticeable from the street as it looks like a small chalet from the Alps, just between a tourist shop and a massage parlor. It is owned by a Swiss German who has lived in Bali for over 30 years. You would have guessed it yourselves, Swiss Restaurant is specializing in Swiss dishes. They also serve the typical international fare that can be found in any restaurants in Kuta. You can have a look at the full menu on their website below. Note that they serve "raclette" and "fondue", but on a plate instead of the traditional sharing casserole. Tomato Salad (Rp15,000 net) Cut Veal Zurich Style (95,000rp net) I tried the Zurgschnetzlets mit Rosti (Rp95,000 net) - Cut Veal Zurich Style - which I found just ok for the price. I don't know how it is supposed to taste though so if there are Swiss readers of this blog who tried Swiss Restaurant,

Yut'z Place (Legian, Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Yut'z Place is a good value restaurant located between Legian and Seminyak in Bali. It was opened in 2001 by Mimo Habibii who I believe is a Swiss German with Egyptian origins (please correct me if I'm wrong). I found the place by accident and I am glad I did! It looks like any other restaurants from the outside. It is simple, in the open-air, and clean. The great thing about it is the complete, affordable menu. They are particularly famous for their steaks but you can have pretty much anything you could think (Continental and Indonesian food). I had the Giant Healthy Salad (i forgot the price, I think around Rp70,000 Net). It was truly huge and healthy, the best I've had in Bali. The Giant Healthy Salad! The service was really friendly and the waiters will bring you a cold towel and a frozen margarita as a welcome drink. Overall: I will definitely come back to try more items on the menu! The only drawback is the location which is not so easy to find. To
