Bingin, Padang Padang, Uluwatu Area:

1. D'Alvie Kitchen

**TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR RENOVATION**

D’Alvie offers Nasi Campur and a menu of dishes made to order. It’s bright and clean and in a great location, just a short walk from Drifter Surf on Bingin Beach road. They have indoor and outdoor tables and are open for lunch and dinner. Food is fantastic with generous servings at a very reasonable price. Vegetarian and some vegan options. We love it for a quick lunch stop. Delicious! 

 

2. D'Buchu

D’Buchu is a local roadside warung and a favourite amongst locals, expats and travellers in the know. Run by a lovely local family, with Bingin surf icon Robbie at the helm. BBQ is best. Try their Pork Ribs, Ikan Bakar (grilled fish) or Ayam Bakar (grilled chicken). All meals are served with rice, boiled vegetables and a smile. Cooking is done on “island time” so order a beer, or two, and watch the world go by. We love it! 

 

3. Warung Local, Jl Labuan Sait

New kid on the block, Warung Local buzzes with travellers looking for a clean, modern local eats. They offer a great selection of nasi campur (nothing spicy here – the food caters to a western tastes) with lots of healthy, vegan and vegetarian options. They also have a regular menu of Indonesian and western meals made to order.  If the Bali heat is too much for you, sit in their air-conditioned section with an ice cream from their gelato bar. 

4.Warung Yeye's, Uluwatu

Yeye’s is an icon of the area as it’s been around since forever! They have a restaurant serving up western and Indonesian dishes, but their roadside nasi campur is the pick! Food is fresh and flavoursome with lots of choices for herbivores or carnivores alike. Located on the main Uluwatu road between Padang Padang & Thomas beach, it’s a great spot to stop in for a quick lunch while exploring or beach hopping. Super affordable and absolutely delish! 

5. La Kantina

La Kantina offers a wonderful selection of nasi campur. With a contemporary Bali-surfer inspired atmosphere, you can customise your plate with a variety of flavourful and authentic Indonesian dishes. We love their beef rendang, ayam lilit, tempe manis and perkedel jagung (corn fritters). Portion sizes are generous and prices very affordable. Highly recommended for a quick and satisfying local food experience that may have you wanting to return each and every day. We love it. 

6. Bingin Beach BBQ

The nightly beach Seafood BBQ at Bingin Beach is a unique experience and one we highly recommend. Each afternoon the beach warungs set up tables & chairs, fire up their beach side BBQ’s ready to cook up the daily catch. Choose from mahi mahi fillets, whole snapper, squid, prawns and more, all cooked to perfection and served with water spinach, rice & sambal. We recommend heading down while it’s still light –  around 5pm. Grab a drink, take in the sunset and enjoy this very memorable dining experience. 

7. 3D Warung

3D has been a favourite of ours for over 10 years. The menu is cheap and cheery and food is cooked to order. Everything is delicious, but we personally go back for the Ayam bakar (BBQ chicken) and bakmie goreng telur (fried noodles with egg) and always include a serve of sayur hijau (green vegetables). It is basic in setting, but what they lack in decor they make up for with friendly smiles, service and super tasty food. Excellent value for money. 

8. Warung mbak Nita, Bingin

You’ll find this small roadside warung halfway between Melali and Bingin village. They offer a good selection of nasi campur along with ayam goreng (fried chicken), nasi & mie goreng. It’s more popular with locals who drop in to grab some “bungkus” (take-away) at breakfast and lunch, so get in early to get the good stuff! If you’re looking for a “local’ local warung, here’s your place. 

9. Warung Jony, Uluwatu

Warung Jony is a true local haunt, a bit of a “best keep secret” eatery. It acts largely as a takeaway venue for Indonesians working at nearby resorts and for expats and travellers ‘in the know’. Expect no glamour here. Down a dusty laneway with little signage. Nasi Campur style food, super delicious and cheap. We love it. Tip – get in quick as most of the food sells out by 1pm. 

Ungasan, Jimbaran Area:

1o. The Warung, Alila Villas, Ungasan

If you’re looking for wholesome Indonesian food within a 5 star setting with your best threads on, The Warung is the place for you. The restaurant is located in the very exclusive Alila Villas. The team of chefs prepare beautiful dishes which showcase flavours from all over Indonesia. You can sit inside at the communal table or out for a more private experience. As plates are designed to share, it’s great for couples as well as a group dinner with friends or family. 

11. Warung Campur Campur / Stop Makan Yuk, Ungasan

Warung Campur Campur (aka “Stop Makan Yuk!”), located close to GWK cultural park is a long time favourite, literally – they catered our wedding! Their catchphrase Maka nenak tidak perlu mahal  (delicious food doesn’t have to be expensive!) is so true at this bustling warung. They offer a HUGE selection (40+ dishes) of nasi campur. The place is clean and organised; the service prompt and friendly; and prices very reasonable for the quality of the food. It’s popular with locals & tourists, with most of the dishes prepared with little spice to cater for the latter. Like spice? Be sure to ask for sambal! 

12. Art Cafe by Bumbu Bali

Art Cafe by Bumbu Bali is an institution of Bali. For more than 20 years they’ve been committed to providing exceptional food that showcases and celebrates authentic Balinese cuisine. You’ll experience a culinary, cultural and visual art experience. They also offer wonderful cooking classes! It is definitely worth visiting if you’re in or near Nusa Dua.

13. Babi Guling ibu Ella, Jimbaran

If you’re on the hunt for great Balinese food, then be sure to stop in at ‘Warung Ibu Ella‘.  This place is a favourite among locals and anyone “in the know”. Don’t be put off by the questionable cleanliness of the place because the food is delish! Try the Ayam Betutu (chicken seasoned with spices) and the Babi Guling (roast pork). Or if you can’t choose, just order mix plate and get both. Soup is amazing too. 

14. Warung Nasi Ayam Ibu Oki, Jimbaran

Warung Nasi Ayam Ibu Oki is a bustling warung located in a Jimbaran side street near Jenggala Ceramics and one of the most popular local eateries in the South Kuta area. The constant stream of locals patiently waiting in line to order is a good indication this place has the goods. Authentic food at a fantastic price. Not toned down for tourists, so can be spicy.
