Each corner that you turn, each street that you take, you will see a tantalising satay stall or a tiny warung waving to you with inviting arms.

Where to Eat in Seminyak, Bali

Brunch places

australian coffee flat white revolver express
There are so many Australians here - meaning there's no shortage of good, Aussie coffee! You're paying around the same price as you would in Melbourne for this cup of coffee too! 35k for this flat white excluding tax.

Being one of the most visited places by Australians, Bali never runs out of good brunch spots. 

Most of the brunch places in Bali seem to resemble the quality of brunch food in Australia. Coming from Melbourne, I have to say that the quality of these places surprised me!

  1. Sisterfields – Sisterfields is wildly famous for it’s daring adventure in the conventional brunch menu. Think jalapeno cheese fondue and polenta fries. You are welcome.
  2. Revolver espresso – this post is not just about where to eat in Seminyak, but also where to find a good coffee in Seminyak. I am proud to say that Revolver Espresso is as good as a coffee that you’d have in Melbourne! 
  3. Nalu Bowls – Down for some healthy acai bowls? Head to Nalu Bowls! They have many branches and the one in Seminyak is really cute! 

Restaurants in Seminyak

Most upscale restaurants in Bali features expansive gardens with serene ponds and architecture. Warung Mina Petitenget is one fine example.

Balinese Fine Restaurants

Warung Mina Petitenget grilled chicken
If you order a rice dish, it normally comes with many side dishes. The grilled chicken in Warung Mina Petitenget comes with an assortment of sambal (a hot condiment), veggies and pickled cucumber!
  1. Warung Mina Petitenget – Warung Mina is another place that was close to my accommodation. They have a serene garden with fountains and a amazing decor! Apart from Balinese dishes, you can also find typical dishes from Southeast Asian cuisine like Tomyam here (although I wouldn’t recommend it – when in Bali, eat Balinese food) 
  2. Bebek Tepi Sawah – one of the most expensive meals that I had. I have never thought that fried duck would be as crispy as this and at the same time, super tender on the inside. It was super well done. Personally, if you ask me where to eat in Seminyak, this would be the best place, especially if you love duck!
  3. Naughty Nuri Seminyak – Another place famous for their pork ribs. If you don’t eat pork, their ayam bakar (grilled chicken) is also delish!

  1. Nasi Ayam Kedewatan Ibu Mangku – this was one of my first meals in Bali. I was searching for where to eat in Bali on Google Maps. This place is really near to my accommodation so I gave it a try. Turns out to be one of my best lunches in Bali!
  2. Made’s Warung – Made’s Warung specialises in Balinese cuisine. It’s priced slightly higher but you are also getting typical Balinese delights with refined texture and flavour.
  3. Wahaha Pork Ribs – Specialised in pork ribs, Wahaha is one of the best places to eat in Seminyak. It is slightly out of the way but dear god those ribs…

Typical Balinese fare 

Tired of foreigners and looking for restaurants to eat in Seminyak that are frequented by locals? These are the food places that you must know!

  1. Babi Guling Sari Kembar – It was a precious gem. Not many foreigners know about this place but they have one of the best “babi guling” rice that I have tried in Bali!
  2. Warung Sulawesi – Introduced to me by a Balinese friend, Warung Sulawesi is her usual warung to hang out at with friends when they want to eat something more substantial. It is very cheap. Again, a local gem so not many people know about it.
  3. Sate Babi Bawah Pohon – The name literally translates to “Pork satay under the tree”. This might be a life-changing experience for you.

I reckon Seminyak is the best place to stay in the whole of Bali. Great beaches, great food, great accessibility, great party spots… I can go on and on!
