ZULU : Vegetarian, casual, good value. Amazing little Vego joint in Dyana Pura! Always overflowing with customers! All the locals know it!!

BIKU : Voted best Bali Cafe in 2011. Owner Asri, moved to Bali from Sydney, over 25 years ago. FAB cafe with scrummy brekky, salads and burgers for lunch. Cake and coffee all day, High-Tea (THE BEST), Tarot Readings optional. Indonesian Nasi Goreng and satays or ‘homestyle’ dinners in the evening. The mango and passionfruit mini pavlova is a family delight. Casual vibe and great value. Love Biku! Do book! Don’t miss out.

W  HOTEL: Mad Hatters inspired teaparty! Fabby waiters, death by cake! A holiday treat, even if you’re not staying at THE W, it’s WORTH A VISIT!!

image

LACALACA: New little Mexi joint. Happy, vibey, great value, fun, friendly casual place.

image

ULTIMO: Never fails! Every trip, takes me back to Ultimo. Home-style, Italian cooking. Great service, good value, good food and always buzzing. Ask to sit in the outdoor garden. Do book.

image

PETITENGET: Owned by two Aussies and has an alfresco garden and indoor glass ‘conservatorium’ if it’s raining. Delicious, popular and reasonable. Like, Like!

image

THE BISTROT: Moroccan owner, charming decor, great vibe. My first visit and would definitely return. Fab service and yummo food.

image

MAMA SAN: Spice sensation! ( Ask for less spice if you dont like a firey mouth!!) Value for money, as food is top notch, but not cheap! Try the roti.

image

SARDINE: A very, very special place! French owner, chef. Seafood lovers paradise. Duck to die for! Book ahead. Love, Love!

image

METIS: Extra special. Adore this place. Go early on a Friday at 5 o’clock for the VERY popular Happy Hour. Drinks are half price (around $5) and tasty tapas is complimentary! There’s a DJ and always a great crowd. A must!

YES, YES, YES…

On past trips I have eaten at all of the cafes listed below, but didn’t get to these on this trip. However, I would still strongly recommend… SARONG, LA LUCCIOLA, WARISAN and the H’UU BAR for dining delight.

POTATO HEAD for a sunset drinks, STARFISH BLOO at the W Hotel for Passionfruit Mojitos and tapas.

SEA CIRCUS (great for families), GROCER & GRIND (coffee, cake, rolls etc), CAFE SEMINYAK (coffee and juice), BALI DELI (coffee and snacks) THE JUNCTION and SOHO (newish and haven’t been to this one but heard good dinner reports!)

image

KU DE TA : Still LOVE this place! Fab brekky. Beautiful meals. Great to share tapas, a jug of Sangria and watch the sun go down.

ECHO BEACH, CANGGU:

On a Sunday arvo, try the seafood beach BBQ at Echo Beach or if you want a great cafe, of course its got to be, BETELNUT!!

‘It’s a wrap’ for foodies. There’s loads more places, but these are my faves. I haven’t listed the addresses, as ALL the Blue Taxi drivers know these spots!! Enjoy and please share this AndAndrea love with anyone who you know is going to Bali.
