Best Restaurants In Seminyak you should try
In Indonesia, and particularly in Bali, we eat well. Rice is the staple, of course, and the national dish goes by the name of nasi goreng: fried rice with eggs, small pieces of meat and vegetables, or shrimp.
But Indonesian food is a reflection of the ethnic mosaic that the country represents: rich, surprising, varied and colorful.
Batik Restaurant, Southeast Asian, $$
Certainly one of the most beautiful decorations in Bali, Batik is a restaurant that is worth the detour as much for the content as for the form. The place is perfect for an “atas” coffee and fully experience the contradictions of expat life in Southeast Asia.
Ginger Moon, Asian Fusion, $$
Ginger Moon is a fabulous Asian fusion restaurant on Oberoi Street (Eat Street / Kayu aya Street). Really cool and stylish interiors, professional staff and delicious food, this is a must visit.

In fact, the menu, created by Executive Chef Dean Kedell, was created with sharing in mind. Website: https://gingermoonbali.com/
The Corner House, International, $$
At the end of Jalan Kayu Aya to go to The Corner House. And the least we can say is that it was worth it. The location is fantastic and the coffee good.
Esquina, Asian Mediterranean $$
Asian Mediterranean foods with good flavors. Waiters and waitresses at the top. The service nothing to say. Always smile and come to you regularly to find out if everything is going well. That’s what we like in Bali. A bit pricey but justified given the quality of the dishes and the service, no waiting. Flawless!
Café Bali, $$
Very well located, this restaurant offers all types of food at reasonable prices. Nice decor. “Easy” cooking. A bit noisy in the evening. Cool service. Café Bali offers a very simple but varied menu. The service, very young, is really friendly and responsive! ULTRA ULTRA ULTRA fast service, very efficient staff 🙂
Sambal Shrimp, Seafood, $$
In a typical Balinese setting and a really nice place on the terrace. The products are of high quality and the service is very professional and friendly.
Restaurant Bambu, Indonesian, $$$

Restaurant Quirky Warung Eny, Bistro, Indonesian, $
One of the more low-key places you can go for authentic Balinese cuisine is Warung Eny. Its rustic and unremarkable appearance keeps the crowds away. If only they knew! The food is incredibly authentic, from grilled whole fish over coconuts to nasi goreng and even gato gato. Satay also tastes great, and if you have time, ask Eny for a cooking class.

Made’s Warung Seminyak $$
This Warung is a bit different from the ones shown above. Indeed, Warung Made is an emblematic culinary establishment of Indonesian cuisine. The dishes are delicious and you can expect to find a rather extensive menu ranging from Gado-Gado to grilled fish, not to mention the babi guling (suckling pig) and other spicy rice. The particularity of this warung and what makes, in part, its reputation, are the representations of the typical Balinese dances which one can attend while having dinner.

Have a drink while watching the sunset
Incredible spot! Tailor-made service, excellent food quality, music at the top! Admittedly a little expensive but it is well worth the price given the quality!
La Plancha $$
A colorful bar with big beanbags to sit and sip a fresh juice (the banana juice is delicious) or a beer facing a breathtaking sunset. It was enough to seduce me! It must be said that the sunset over the sea is really breathtaking! Judge by yourself !
To watch the sunset, come relatively early to hope to have a table, because the place is very busy. But at worst, you can always fall back on another bar on the beach, the sunset will be the same!

La Favela $$$
Behind a sall, narrow entrance that does not look like much hides THE nightclub not to be missed in Seminyak. Anyway, it’s simple: everyone is there! Several rooms and dance floors await you. The decoration is surprising and eclectic as we like them! In the middle of the bar, the trees have made their way. We are far from classic nightclubs. You need to dressup to come here, no flip flops, no short pants for man.
Good to know: at dinner time (Western, Asian), the supercharged Favela turns into a restaurant where you can also have a drink.
This restaurant turns into a dance bar as soon as the service ends. Once the plates are cleared, people dance on the tables and the atmosphere is completely charged until 1am. The “dance floor” is located under a large glass roof. Watch out, it’s going to be hot! Literally as figuratively ! An original place!
It feels like a gothic cathedral with stunning stained glass windows and futuristic lasers piercing the dance floor. Welcome to the Mirror! In such an atmosphere, clubbers are completely immersed and often international sizes are programmed on the turntables. The music is very good and the place is not crowded (all things considered, we are still talking about a nightclub). Very friendly staff, which contributes to the good atmosphere of the establishment. Place not too crowded with locals and tourists.
Jenja $$$ Permanently CLOSED 🙁
Jenja is the trendy club for going out in Bali. It is a bar-club located in Seminyak on the street that goes towards the Double Six beach. The atmosphere and the music are there and we often invite well-known DJs who know how to set the mood in the evenings. Address: Seminyak Town Square Suites Jl. Nakula Seminyak, Bali. You need to dressup to come here, no flip flops, no short pants for man.
Hours: 8:00 p.m. – 4:00 a.m.
