The 35 Best Buffets In Bali: Where To Enjoy All-You-Can-Eat Food In Bali 2024

We love an eat as much as you can eat for a single-price deal and Bali has some amazing buffet restaurants that scratch that itch.

Some of them even complement that deal with a “drink as much as you can drink” offer too, particularly at the best Sunday brunches in Bali.

Here’s our pick of the 35 best buffets in Bali. Our team really enjoyed working through the different restaurants to come to this conclusion, we think that you will too.

A Note On Buffet Restaurants In Bali

Not every restaurant on this list operates a buffet at every sitting. Some of them offer the best Sunday brunches as their buffet, others may operate breakfast, lunch and dinner sittings.

It’s always worth calling in advance and making sure that there is a buffet available at these places before you travel.

You can also make reservations for these restaurants in advance and we’d note that for many of the best Sunday brunches on the island, you will need to make a reservation particularly if it’s in the signature restaurant of a major hotel.

However, as we have already got a list of the best Sunday brunches on this blog, we’ve tried wherever possible to include places doing great food at other times of day too.

The Best 35 Buffets In Bali

Seaside Affair @ FINNS Beach Club

2023.10.27 seaside brunch st tropez 88 scaled

We think the best Sunday brunch in Bali is to be found at the best beach club in the world, FINNS.

The St. Tropez fine dining party restaurant holds a relaxed (and pleasantly late in the day) Sunday Brunch that can help shift the fog from the previous night’s partying.

The brunch offers a buffet of everything on the menu and you can also order a la carte, with the buffet focusing on cold cuts, bread, seafood, etc. and it also offers unlimited drinks packages!

At 650,000++ per person, if it’s not the best Sunday brunch on the island, we really don’t know what is.

Come along and try the Seaside Affair for yourself, and afterwards enjoy a dip in one of the swimming pool options at our beach club.

Little Singapore By Chef Bernard, Kerobokan Kelod

FAQs

What’s The Best Food To Eat In Bali?

There are so many great things to eat in Bali that there’s no way that we could choose “the best food”, well we could, but all it would do is upset people and we’d rather not.

What we can say is that there are a lot of great local dishes to try such as Nasi Goreng, Babi Guling, Bebek and Ayam Betutu and Indonesian food in this part of Indonesia has its own signature accent.

How Much Is Brunch In Bali?

It depends on the kind of Sunday Brunch Experience that you’re looking for.

The best Sunday brunches here in Bali can be ridiculous affairs filled with luxury foods, such as lobster omelettes and premium meat, and free-flowing champagne at the most expensive resorts on the island.

Others might offer the freshest seafood and other delicious food without alcohol but with live music and local treats like Balinese suckling pig. Some may have live entertainment or live music and others may not and so on…

Thus, the price you pay for the best Sunday brunches can vary dramatically.

You might pay as little as 300,000 IDR for adults and less for children at one of the simpler best Sunday brunches but you might pay much more.

How Much Is A Lavish Sunday Brunch With Free Flow Soft Drinks And Alcohol And A La Carte Menu?

That depends on which Sunday Brunch you attend.

The Sunday Brunch at FINNS’ St. Tropez Restaurant is “The Seaside Affair” and you can eat as much as you want and order from an a la carte menu for just 650,000++ IDR per person.

Whereas, if you want to try Kayuputi Bar at the St. Regis in Nusa Dua Bali, then it’s 1,500,000 IDR for the food and an additional 1,450,000 IDR for the drinks, per person!

They are both lavish Sunday brunch options with everything described above and they’re both wonderful places to enjoy relaxing by the beach for a few hours of decadence during your time in Bali.

Is It Expensive To Eat In Bali?

No, in fact, generally speaking, Bali is considered very good value for money when it comes to eating out, however, as with anywhere in the world, there’s a premium to be paid for the finer things in life and the best Sunday brunches on the island do cost more than a cheap and enjoyable Indonesian meal in a local warung.

As you might expect a lobster brunch is going to cost more than some fresh seafood on a local beach. A buffet with an a la carte menu will often cost more than one with just an open buffet.

Local desserts cost less than imported sweet treats, grilled meats are more than vegan and vegetarian options, and so on.

There are plenty of authentic cuisines to please your taste buds in Bali and the price can vary considerably from restaurant to restaurant.

It’s worth taking some time to scrutinize the costs of the menu before you book Raffles, Bali or Bali’s longest brunch to ensure that they fit within your budget.

Final Thoughts On The Best Buffet, Bali

A buffet in Bali doesn’t mean compromising on the quality of the food as it might in some other parts of the world.

The best Sunday brunches in Bali are the envy of the world and you can enjoy the freshest seafood, homemade pasta, fresh juices, handmade ice cream, local oxtail soup and much more for a sensible fixed price.

Some of the buffets here even offer swimming pool access and other perks to diners. We hope that our list of the best buffets in Bali has given you some food for thought for your next culinary outing in Bali.
