Fancy some fine dining in a sensational setting? Look no further than Ultimo. This iconic Italian restaurant has moved to a new venue a few doors down from the original and looks better than ever – with a delicious new menu to match. Ultimo is perfect for date nights or a special occasion.
2. Kilo Kitchen
Chic, minimalist, modern architecture amid lush tropical greenery, Kilo Kitchen is calming vibe in the beating heart of Seminyak – and just a short walk from our villas! Sister to Kilo Singapore, it’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving a delicious mix of signature dishes and innovative specials using local Indonesian ingredients. The squid ink rice is a definite highlight.
3. Waroeng Bernadette
Our favourite authentic Indonesian food in Seminyak is at Waroeng Bernadette offers a delicious introduction to local cuisine. The food here is so good we’re sure you’ll want to visit more than once. With chic cafe style paired with rich Indonesian cuisine and warm hospitality, our highlight is the beef rendang. The coffee here is fabulous, too.
At this point, Sisterfields is a Seminyak landmark. Opened in 2017, this Bondi style restaurant consistently draws a crowd for the cool vibe and awesome fresh flavours suited to all-day Aussie style dining. Sisterfields is a particularly popular spot for breakfast and brunch – the pancakes here are decadent with sensorial splendour. Light, fluffy and tasty of course, but it’s the toppings that do it. Seasonal Flavours in creamy, crunchy, sweet & savoury sensations.
And if you still want more later in the day, check out Big-sisters, little sister, Manina, a cool little speakeasy hidden right next door. Did somebody say cocktails?
Located so close to Chandra on Seminyak’s famous Eat Street, BATIK is a gorgeous restaurant specialising in Indonesian, Vietnamese and Thai food that consistently garners rave reviews. The food is beautifully presented and the service is always kind and attentive. We love the decor, with elegant touches of Indonesian batik used throughout the light and airy venue. Go for romance!
6. Ku De Ta
Ku De Ta is, of course, one of the most iconic beach clubs in Bali, and post-pandemic has come back better than ever. With a new chef, the culinary offerings are next-level social food. Opt for classic poolside favourites like pizza and burgers, or indulge in oysters and striploin steak with one of Bali’s best beach views. Ku De Ta is a great choice for families, with regularly scheduled kids’ activities and a dedicated menu. Even better, it’s located less than five minutes walk from your Chandra home.
7. Wild Habit Pizza
Sometimes you just need a pizza, and when it’s time, you should definitely check out Wild Habit Pizza. Located along Jalan Raya Seminyak, Wild Habit is often credited with serving the best pizza in Seminyak – or even the whole island! The venue is understatedly elegant, with huge windows perfect for people watching. Our guests rave about the great selection of craft beer.
8. Bo & Bun
Another great find located on Jalan Raya Seminyak is the much-loved Asian eatery Bo & Bun. We love their Vietnamese dishes in particular – you can’t go wrong with their banh mi or their famous pho. There’s also a kids’ menu to cater to aspiring foodies. Bo & Bun is a relaxed venue that’s as well suited for grabbing a light bite as it is for lingering over a large feast.
9. Chai’ba Street Kitchen & Bar
For a spice hit, from an Indian perspective, make your way over to Chai’ba. The flavours are rich and authentic, the dishes beautifully presented and there are plenty of options for vegans and vegetarians, too. Chai’ba is a feast for all the senses, inspired by the flavours and colours
Northern and Southern India, all prepared using fresh local ingredients.
10. La Lucciola
La Lucciola offers an irresistible combination: delicious Italian food paired with sublime views overlooking Petitenget Beach. The views alone make this iconic restaurant a must-visit, but La Lucciola levels up with a well-executed Italian beach-club menu, awesome architecture and flawless service. It’s a top choice for a special occasion, to spoil your gorgeous guests, or simply for adding some dolce vita to your Bali holiday.
