Top 30 Restaurants For Delicious Food In Sanur

Jalapeno

We start our best restaurants in Sanur with Jalapeno. This is a super spicy Tex Mex that makes amazing tacos (and yes, they have a Taco Tuesday).

We like that they use locally sourced ingredients to create things like a Baja Fish Taco, which really gives their food a Balinese twist.

And if you’re done eating, make sure to take advantage of the margaritas. They make a mean margarita, too.

CORK Bistro Bali & Wine Bar

CORK is one of the best restaurants in Sanur, and if you like your fine dining experience laced with a touch of casual, this is where you go.

Their Balinese rijsttafel is a perfect example of how they take European classics and add a local twist to them.

Oh, and not only do they have an excellent wine list, but they are also a wine store, and you can buy bottles to take home with you after your meal!

Coco Bistro

Izzy Izakaya Street

There is only one Izakaya street in the whole of Bali, and it’s in Sanur. This is a selection of the best restaurants serving Japanese food in Kyoto style.

That means you can choose from an incredible six different concepts of food!

We like that there’s no rush and no pressure as you work your way through awesome cocktails and incredible plates to the live band playing in the background.

Sala Bistro & Coffee

Sala is the refined coffee shop experience that you only know you’re missing in your life once you find it at Sala.

It’s an amazing place to have brunch, and it’s a very popular spot for Australians, in particular, who love the fresh local produce on display.

During the day, their Seniman Coffee is considered to be a very fine cup of coffee, indeed, but we need to learn about that – we prefer to arrive at sunset and sit on the rooftop sipping wine.

Pier Eight

This Sanur Beach restaurant is very family-friendly during the day, and even the fussiest of kids will enjoy a family meal here.

But at night, they transform into one of the coolest and most chic bars on the island.

We like to grab a cocktail or two as we contemplate whether to have the rendang curry or the local soto. They also do some surprisingly authentic Italian pizzas and pasta dishes.

Soul On The Beach

This is on Sindhu Beach, and it’s the more family-focused cousin of Shotgun Social (which is also on our list).

There’s plenty of space for young children to play, but always within eyeball distance of the dining area.

They specialize in new and unique creations food-wise each day, and it’s a lot of fun to try everything they have to offer.

Naughty Nuri’s Sanur

The crispy pork knuckle sealed the deal for us with Naughty Nuri’s, but it could as easily have been their signature ribs.

They have a cocktail drinking challenge to go alongside their extensive menu of international dishes, and if you can down four of their biggest cocktails in a single trip, they put your name on the wall!

Just be warned: if you want your taste buds to experience the pork, you may want to order it a day in advance! Yes, it’s that popular.

Fisherman’s Club @ Andaz Bali

Many people visit Sanur just for the seafood platter on offer at so many of the town’s restaurants. If you want something that’s truly an upscale version of that – you go to the Fisherman’s Club.

And if you prefer something a little more “light bites” in style, go for the grilled squid.

And if you’re not into seafood dishes? Don’t worry. The menu features plenty of other choices.

Pescado Bali

The best Mediterranean cuisine in and around Sanur Beach is found at Pescado.

The objective here is to create an environment where everyone delights in sharing the awesome food on offer.

They have jugs of sangria on hand to help you get in the mood, too.

The big win is their paella, which may be the best paella in Bali. Yum.

Massimo

If you’re thinking “Italian food” for a romantic dinner on the island, then Massimo is the original Italian eatery in Sanur, and its longevity is down to the awesome food.

Take your camera because the dishes are very Instagrammable, and their gelato counter is one of the most social-media-friendly views that you’re going to get in Bali.

Pizzaria @ Hyatt Regency Bali

The international menu at Pizzaria is a reflection of the Hyatt Regency’s commitment to excellence, but as you’d expect from the name, the best food here is Italian.

We love to chow down on one of their hearty traditional wood-fired pizzas after scoffing some tuna carpaccio.

But we always leave room for dessert because the homemade gelato is amazing here!

Daily Baguette

This hidden gem is one of our top breakfast spots in Sanur. They have very friendly service and use local, fresh ingredients to create interesting fusion food.

We loved their Sumatera Savoury Crepe, for example, which blends mushrooms and a local rendang curry to maximum effect.

Take advantage of the treats at this restaurant, it’s awesome.

Patio Coffee & Comfort Food

Sanur cafes don’t get much better than Patio, where you know that you’re going to have a good time just by looking at the drinks menu.

Then, it’s on to some awesome Indonesian food such as nasi goreng or pepes ikan if you’re feeling adventurous or a tasty eggs benedict or roast chicken if you’re not.

Digital nomads will love it here, especially as the Wi-Fi’s good, and it’s fine to work here as long as you’re eating or drinking.

Lilla Pantai

You can tell that Lilla Pantai is one of the best restaurants in Sanur because everybody mentions it when you ask where you should eat in the area.

Their breakfast menu is absolutely the perfect way to set yourself up for the day.

The lunch and evening menu features plenty of local favourites as well as some more exotic international dishes.

Genius Cafe Sanur

Do you want to eat in a place with a vibrant atmosphere and where the food is plant-based and super healthy? Look no further than the Genius Cafe.

This is one of three branches of the Genius Cafe on the island, and it’s a great, fun place to eat because it’s part of a social club as well as part of a restaurant.

Kids will love the finger-licking food, and the attentive service is genuinely appreciated.

Most of all, though, check their calendar and see what’s going on before you visit. They often have things like “bring a pet with you” day or a “release a baby turtle in the ocean” day!

Shotgun Social

This is the sister restaurant to the previously mentioned Soul on the Beach restaurant.

They’re all about craft beer (with nearly 20 different beers on tap to choose from) and an awesome wine list here.

They also offer an excellent gastropub-style menu that will make for a very pleasant dining experience for all the family.

Shotgun Social is also the only pub in Bali that we know of that has a menu for dogs, too! So bring your pup if you have one!

Naga Eight Restaurant

If you want the most awesome Chinese food, then Naga Eight is where to go. It’s a beast of a building that has a castle-like appeal to it.

We love that this fine dining restaurant provides plenty of open-air-style seating to choose from.

One thing that really stands out about Naga Eight is how skillfully they incorporate Indonesian dishes into traditional Cantonese ones.

This is a unique dining experience in Bali.

Taqisa

If you want a diverse range of Mexican food for a reasonable price, you should head to Taqisa.

Everything here is based on traditional Mexican family recipes that the owners brought to Bali.

They have an excellent kids menu, too.

Arena Pub & Restaurant

If you want a simple but elegant pub grub and a cold Bintang in an unpretentious setting, you may want the Arena Pub.

We were really impressed by the steaks here, but you can go right with all of the dishes on their menu, really.

This is a solid place to bring some friends for an evening of companionship and great food.

Kayumanis Seaside Restaurant/Kayumanis Sanur

Who likes to sit by the seaside and enjoy a combination of Western and Indonesian dishes?

This is a lovely place where you can chill out and graze on the menu as you feel like it.

There’s plenty of room for little ones to run about and have fun, too, without ever getting out of your line of sight.

Three Monkeys Sanur

The Three Monkeys Sanur combines Middle Eastern with Mediterranean and Indonesian to deliver a truly unique approach to delicious food.

We love that they opted for a Balinese-style building, and it’s one of the most Instagrammable restaurants in Sanur.

If you want to relax after a day on Sanur Beach, this is a wonderful spot to enjoy great food and refreshing drinks.

White Orchid

The White Orchid delivers some of the most unashamedly awesome Asian dishes in the area.

Every dish uses fresh, local ingredients, and you’ll be showing off their presentation in your Instagram feed, guaranteed.

The vibe is very relaxed and casual, and if you want a full belly and a good time over some delicious Asian cuisine, you can’t go wrong.

The Glass House

The Glass House looks fancy from a distance. It’s a tall building with glass walls and ceilings, and you can tell that it’s hip and trendy but relaxed and fun, too.

Start the day with a great Australian breakfast here, or head back for a multicultural lunch or dinner; their Vietnamese Salad is a total winner!

They bake fresh cakes here every day, and that’s one of the reasons that our kids never let us miss a visit to The Glass House when we’re in Sanur.

Bread Basket

If you like your bread a little bit “fancy” you’re going to love the folks at the Bread Basket. They’ve brought artisan baking to Bali, and they love to share their skills with their customers.

We also appreciate their all-day breakfast menu because it means we can always get a great start-of-the-day feed, even if our day starts at 4 p.m.

Their drinks menu is very creative, too, and we really like that they can whip up an egg coffee, something that always reminds us of Vietnam.

The Fire Station

If you’re looking for that traditional expat pub vibe, then look no further than The Fire Station. You know exactly what to expect the moment you walk in the door.

The good news is that you won’t be disappointed, and we recommend their Sunday Roast, which is absolutely fantastic value for money.

You will have drinks choices, too, as they have a solid wine list, plenty of craft beer and a cocktail menu!

The Hub Bali

When all we want is great Indonesian food in Sanur, our first choice is always going to be The Hub.

Once you’ve tried the pork belly with its super crunchy crackling, you’re never going to want to eat anywhere else, either.

The dining area is really big, and it’s a great place to bring a large group or your family for a fun afternoon.

This all-day restaurant serves cocktails on the beach between meals and courses.

We’re really impressed that their menu is so good as it would be very easy to rely on the setting to carry the day.
