Seminyak restaurants are known for serving high quality culinary treats. Mostly the owner or chef is a foreigner, so not surprisingly the menu is often western styled with occasionally a mixture of the Indonesian or Balinese cuisine.
There are a couple of Seminyak restaurants which are really well-known on the island and are often featured in glossy magazines about Bali. Every night people stand in line so they can experience top cuisine.
So as you may have expected; reservations are necessary, best a couple of nights in advance.
All kinds of restaurants in Seminyak Bali
In Seminyak the restaurants do not only aim at creating the most delicious dishes, but they focus also on decorating the place (something you won't always find in Bali ;-).
Therefore these Bali restaurants have their own character and special ambiance which attract all sorts of people.
The most famous Seminyak restaurants are all located on Jalan Oberoi. However on Jalan Petitinget, the road connected to Jalan Oberoi more restaurants have recently opened their doors.
So check out this street as well when you are looking for another great dinning venue.
The Livingroom is one of the popular Seminyak restaurants that serve Asian and Balinese cuisine. At night the candles light up the place and with its comfortable furniture it actually looks like a real living room.
Not far from the Living room you have the Hu'u. This is a totally different place as the restaurant transforms itself into a club during the night. Very popular among young people and expats.
Another place that is always packed with expats and tourists is de Ku De Ta. It's located right at Seminyak beach so during the day people flock here to be seen and to enjoy the atmosphere while working on their tan.
At night many parties are organized here. So check out their schedules when you are here.
La Luciola is also at the beach and when you are looking for a nice ambiance together with Italian food, than this is another popular option.
An other restaurant which opened in 2008 is Sarong at Jalan Petitinget. It serves food from all over the world in a amazingly beautifully decorated restaurant. Reviews have been great about this place, so definitely worth a try.
Our favorites Seminyak restaurants where we had a great time and where we enjoyed tantalizing dishes are:
We were surprised to see a Bistro named after the famous little statue in Brussels. And once entering, we were actually in Belgium.
The menu which includes real Belgium delights is superb, just as the ambiance. And while enjoying the food and Belgium beer you can drift away on their wide collection of Jazz and Blues...
If you are looking for a different taste then you must head to this restaurant on Jalan Oberoi.
When we first tried out this authentic Moroccan restaurant the interior resembled a bazaar. But they have changed the whole place into a stylish restaurant edging more towards Japanese style. That said their Moroccan food is still delicious so no need for ordering the newly added Western and Indonesian dishes. You can do that at the many other Seminyak restaurants...;-)
We happened to run into Cafe Bali when it started to rain buckets. When we managed to settle down and looked around it felt we had left Bali behind and had entered a cute restaurant somewhere in Europe.
The decor is well thought off with nice lighting, flower wall paper, different chairs and tables and comfortable lounge seats in the back. We just went for a cup of tea from their large selection but their European and Asian menu looked pretty good...
This is the place to go if you are looking for breakfast, lunch or dinner that doesn't contain any traces of animal protein.
Even die-hard carnivores will find enough to choose from and won't miss their daily dose of meat. Their unique combinations of ingredients will have you experiment with new tastes in no time...
Right on the busy main street of Seminyak you can find the local delight "Ocha", the most popular and busiest of all Seminyak restaurants.
Here you can order Nasi Campur which is basically created by yourself. Just head over to their food display and choose from all the mouthwatering Indonesian dishes. Their garden is a great place to enjoy their Bali food...
Between the fancy and expensive Saminyak Restaurants at Jalan Oberoi you can fortunately still find Bali food served the local way and at a pretty local price.
After the success of Warung Murah in Legian, the owners have opened a second warung. Here you can choose from a dozen of delicious local dishes ranging from chicken currry, beef rendang, sayur lodeh, fried fish, tofu and tempe dishes and many more....
