- Great restaurant in a converted Javanese house with Aussie chef Will Meryck serving south-east asian cuisine. Great ambiance and food, standards are pretty high and gorgeous setting, a real favorite. Must reserve a table as busy on weekends and high season.
SARONG - www.sarongbali.com
- At the SAMAYA, resort/hotel right across from our little lane - it’s a beach front restaurant, you can have cocktails on the grass and book a table for dinner. Best thing is you only have to cross the street from the villa to be right on the beach. Also great for sunset drinks.
BREEZE - www.thesamaya.com
- Most famous restaurant and bar on the Island. Great cocktails and bar food but also wonderful food in the main dining room. Do the lunch thing and hang around all afternoon. Our favorite place for brunch as best breakfast with the view. No need to book for lunch but dinner can get busy. There have recently opened MEJEKAWI, a 40 seat fine-dining restaurant and food research laboratory all perched within Ku De Ta Bali's newly refurbished, air-conditioned second floor.

- Slippery Stone is a relax casual eatery. The open kitchen and bar created a unique feeling of warmth and hospitality. A Balinese feel is presence due to breathtaking rice-paddy views, and the local farmers going about their day-to-day business. The focus on the menu proper is strongly on local produce and flavours. These dishes will include creative grills, rotisserie meats and artesian pizzas. Jl. Batu Belig 9N Seminyak Bali, ph. +62 361 8465999.
