3 must-try restaurants in Bali

We chose 3 of the top restaurants in Bali for you – each offering something slightly different and very special. You might be surprised, but the little island of Bali offers a great variety of wonderful fine dining restaurants with food and service being on a par with many well known European restaurants. Many restaurants in Bali boast a beautiful setting, either by the sea or in a candle-lit garden under the stars. The 3 top fine dining restaurants we recommend are: Sarong in Seminyak – for a romantic night out; The Warung – for authentic Balinese cuisine under the stars; and Mozaic in Ubud – for a Champagne and caviar experience accompanied by the most delectable degustation menu.

Sarong

This restaurant is located in Seminyak (main shopping and restaurant area). The menu consists of Asian dishes for every taste – Thai, Indian, Sri-Lankan, Indonesian and Vietnamese. Everything is exceptionally fresh, prepared mostly from local ingredients. The interior of Sarong is spectacular – plush leather lounges, crystal chandeliars, candle lit garden create a very inviting and romantic atmosphere. For an ultimate romantic dinner book a garden table. Make your reservation well in advance as this restaurant is extremely popular with expats and tourists alike.

The Warung

For the best food Bali has to offer look no further then this gem. The Warung is located in Alila Uluwatu resort – a stunning modern hotel perched high above the Indian ocean. Arrive a little early to enjoy the sunset and a pre-dinner cocktail in Alila’s stunning pavilion and then move a couple of steps down to the Warung. Ultimate dinner under the stars in a peaceful and beautiful setting.

Warung Bali

This restaurant welcomes children too, so the little ones can enjoy a night out and gourmet food too. To try all the local specialties choose the Chef’s Selection ‘Uluwatu’ – it consists of eleven tasting plates, all superb. Our ultimate favourites are Young jackfruit salad with pork & Shredded chicken with lime and chili. The food in The Warung is not overly spicy which makes it easy to enjoy and share with family and friends.

Mozaic

This gastronomic house by a French chef has won many accolades. It is said to be one of the best in Bali. I have to agree – the food here is amazing (modern European with a Balinese twist). And special offerings like black caviar and foie gras make it an extra luxurious experience in Bali. The dinner in Mozaic will be a memorable night out but it will also set you back at least $400 per couple.

Mozaic Bali

In the Mozaic you’ll be offered four choices of 6 course degustation menus – some with extra special ingredients like lobster and foie gras. Menus start from $70pp not inclusive of drinks. Each dish looks like a piece of art, service by the wait staff is excellent and the wine list is one of the better ones in Bali. Candlelight and torches create a wonderful romantic setting in Mozaic’s garden where couples dine in style enjoying the best Bali has to offer – and each other’s company. A must try at least once on your trip to Bali!

    Wow! The Warung looks and sounds divine, we’ll definitely be visiting soon! We’ve been to Mozaic in Semininyak and that was an amazing dining experience too :)
