The 42 Best Fine Dining Restaurant Options In Bali

Canggu’s Best Fine Dining Restaurant Options

St Tropez Bali

St Tropez is one of our favourite restaurants in Bali, full stop. If you want fine dining with an accent on an elegant party atmosphere, this is where to find it.

There is a dress code, as there are many fine dining restaurants in Bali, but it’s manageable. Don’t wear swimwear or obnoxiously branded clothing; you’ll be fine.

It’s inside the world-famous Finns Beach Club and has the service you expect from that renowned venue.

Enjoy the sunset views while indulging in superb cuisine from locally sourced fresh and seasonal products. It’s great.

Luma

Luma brings London’s Cameron Emirali and Seminyak’s Kieran Morland together in an exemplary partnership that has cemented Luna’s reputation as one of the best fine-dining restaurants in Bali.

The focus in this dining room is on Southern European and Asian influences. Their whole snapper on a bed of prawns is incredible.

We like that they place a charcoal grill and see-through wood-fired oven at the heart of their kitchen. It makes the visual experience so enjoyable.

The wine pairings are excellent, too, and if the wine is written on the menu by hand, it’s one of the rarer bottles in Bali.

Mason Bar & Grill

Mason’s fine dining is all about its authentic Indonesian ingredients, combining various culinary styles to create a unique culinary journey.

We recommend the slow-cooked short rib (apparently, it takes 48 hours to prepare this dish properly, but it was a massive highlight of our evening at Mason).

They also have an extensive menu of excellent cocktails with exotic flavours.

Uni Restaurant & Bar

Uni sees the drinks specialist Nicolas Lento working with Steven Skelley, one of the best chefs on the island, working to create a very sophisticated night out.

The menu features bold and unique dishes that combine Japanese and French cuisine.

We loved the tasting menu and thought it was the best way to appreciate all the food this exquisite dining experience offers.

The stylish interiors are also home to some of the island’s best contemporary art.

Sa’Mesa

Dining at Sa’Mesa is as much an experience as the usual fine dining fare.

You will be seated alongside 50 other diners at a long, communal table, and the menu changes daily.

The way it works is that you remain seated and will be presented with 15-20 surprise dishes throughout the evening.

To drink, there’s unlimited freeflow limoncello or a superb wine and cocktail list to keep every drinker very happy.

Kong

Kong is a refined dining version of the classic European bistro, and it combines European and Asian influences to create stylish and sexy food.

Bold flavours are part of the Kong experience; we couldn’t get enough piri-piri prawns (generously seasoned with garlic and chilli).

Bring your camera to impress people on the gram because the food here is a genuine work of art.

Skool Kitchen

Tai Buddha and Adam McAsey founded this restaurant, and as you might expect if you follow the local foodie scene, they are a big deal here in Bali.

The concept of this fine dining restaurant is that every part of the dining experience should be “touched by fire”.

Fortunately, this means smoking, barbecuing, etc., rather than flame throwers in the dining room.

Even the cocktails have a smoky touch to them. Watch the sunset over the Indian Ocean with a drink before enjoying their casual fine dining room.

Santanera

If you’d like your dining experience to be different, consider heading to Santanera for a Latin-American tapas fusion that is to die for.

Sit in their private dining room, supping on fine wines and enjoying the local ingredients used to create farm-to-table tastes that are simply incredible.

We thought that the sea bream ceviche made for our best memory of food from the Indian Ocean that we’ve had anywhere.

Muda By/Suka

Muda promises a culinary journey across Asia with a healthy nod to Indonesian cuisine as part of the dining experience.

With a perfect 5-star rating on Google after hundreds of reviews, you know you’re in for a treat.

The fantastic thing is that the food at Muda By/Suka is reasonably inexpensive for Bali’s fine dining scene. It’s ideal for a night of romantic dining that won’t leave your wallet exhausted by the end of the evening.

Try the pork and scallion dumplings if you want something that will leave you begging for more of their pan-Asian flavours.

Fine Dining In Jimbaran

Cuca

Cuca’s head chef, Kevin, was trained at El Bulli, one of Spain’s world’s most famous three Michelin-star restaurants.

If you want modern cuisine that is fearless in incorporating traditional cooking techniques that are beautifully presented, Cuca is hard to beat.

The only danger of eating at this tapas-style delicate dining joint is that you’ll spend as much time photographing each dish as you do eating it.

Once you’ve tried their smoked butterfish, you will fall entirely under Cuca’s spell forever. Yum.

DAVA @ Ayana

Our favourite dining experience has to involve steak, and that’s what DAVA excels at.

Start the evening with some champagne and oysters by all means, but the star of the show will be the steak course, and the a la carte menu offers so much in the choice of steak and excellent wine pairings to go with it.

They have a pleasantly casual dining area that overlooks the Indian Ocean, and we like to get here at about sunset to enjoy the view before dinner.

Sundara Beachfront Restaurant

This excellent restaurant at the Four Seasons Resort in Jimbaran Bay is truly iconic.

The serene and peaceful setting is enhanced by the fire pits on the beach as the chefs carry local ingredients to and from the kitchens to the BBQ.

It’s an excellent place for a romantic dinner or a business meeting where you want to impress someone.

We liked their mango and passion fruit cocktail creations, which went well with the delicious dishes at Sundara Beachfront.

Fine Dining In Nusa Dua

Kayuputi

Their brunch is one of the most famous “big occasions” on the island. Think sipping signature cocktails and feasting on Canadian lobster. That’s the kind of experience you’re looking at in this beautiful restaurant in the St. Regis in Nusa Dua.

Outside the brunches, they’re all about a la carte Asian-influenced haute cuisine, and you will have an unforgettable dining experience when eating here for an evening.

The wine list is excellent, too, and it can enhance what is already some of the best food in Bali.

Soleil @ Mulia

Take outstanding Indonesian cuisine and then add a hint of Vietnamese and Thai, and you get the intelligent and exciting food you get at Soleil.

We recommend getting there early and using the jaw-dropping infinity pool in the hotel complex before you dine.

If you’d like to try Soleil’s food before committing to an evening there, why not go to their excellent Sunday brunch?

Table 8 @ Mulia

You won’t want to leave once you’ve tried their black pepper prawn clay pot with vermicelli.

If you want authentic tastes of China in every single bite that you take, this is the place to make your dreams come true.

Even among the high standards of Bali’s fine dining scene, the service is incredible, too.

Izakaya by Oku @ Apurva Kempinski

This resort has so many incredible restaurants; we’ve only got room for two of them on this list. Izakaya by Oku is our first, and it serves the best Japanese cuisine anywhere in Bali.

Try the Wagyu Foie Grad Nigiri if you’re feeling particularly decadent, or opt for the tasting menu or multi-course degustation menu, which will let you enjoy what they offer for a very reasonable price.

Sorrento Mediterranean Restaurant @ Melia

If you want authentic Spanish dining in Bali, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better option than Sorrento.

Chef Johan creates an extraordinary range of food, and you can get an “all-inclusive” dining option that lets you try as much food as possible!

Children are welcome at this place, and we found that their family-friendly focus extends to genuinely world-class service.

Try the pesto gnocchi to start and then pile into a ribeye steak if you want something substantial for your lunch.

Bai Yun Hot Pot @ The Apurva Kempinski

If you want some elevated Cantonese classics in a fine dining atmosphere, we recommend Bai Yun.

The dim sum is incredible, and there’s no finer hot pot anywhere on the island.

The set menus are also very good value and feature plenty of variety to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.

Seminyak’s Best Fine Dining Restaurants

Uma Garden

This is one of many restaurants on our list with a lovely garden, but it is the only place that fully uses the garden as a backdrop for your meal.

So soak up the atmosphere as you feast on fantastic wood-fired food with plenty of exotic dishes and more familiar ones with a genuinely premium taste.

If we want a signature restaurant with candlelight and a magical feel, we go to Uma Garden and take our friends with us.

Mauri

You’ll want to dress up for Mauri, the dress code is strict, and the clientele take it seriously.

Chef Maurizio Bombini serves contemporary Italian that shines (he grows his own ingredients in a hydroponic garden on the roof).

The seasonal ingredients in the tasting menu are always the highlight of a trip to Mauri.

He also has a clever chef’s table (well, chef’s counter) approach where you can join him (with just four other people) to enjoy a tour of the food.

Where Is It? Jl. Petitenget No.100, Seminyak, Kec. Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia

SI JIN

You must book seats at Si Jin long before you fly to Bali if you want to dine here. There’s a 3-month wait list!

Assuming you’ve done that, you’re in for a serious treat. This steak and Korean fusion place makes delicious food.

The 60-day dry-aged ribeye is an absolute star, but we’ve never had anything that we didn’t want more of at Si Jin.

Where Is It? Jl. Lebak Sari no. 18 Petitenget, Kerobokan, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Badung Regency, Bali 80361, Indonesia

Mama San

This was Will Meyrick’s first significant restaurant in Bali, and it’s a casual fine dining place that combines elements of old Shanghai with the modern-day private dining room aesthetic.

Most people come for the bar snacks menu, about sharing street food-style dishes with friends.

And if you want an award-winning restaurant that caters to vegans, the raw food menu will make you very happy.

Starfish Bloo

The most perfect Instagram spot in Seminyak is, without a doubt, Starfish Bloo.

The brunches are what everyone raves about, and we can understand the appeal of checking out the eclectic menu in bite-sized portions.

But we’re huge fans of Pan-Asian flavours, and we’re happy to come at any time of the day or the week to enjoy some of the best seafood in Bali.

The Restaurant @ The Legian Seminyak

Stephane Gortina, the head chef at The Restaurant, has a Michelin star, and his combination of Asian and European techniques is awe-inspiring.

There are many French cuisine elements and some authentic Indonesian cuisine elements, too, and it works so well. Try the grilled batik lobster, and you’ll see what we mean.

This restaurant has one of the most incredible interiors, too. It’s pure Instagram heaven.

The Plantation Grill

If you want a restaurant with a touch of the old colonial appeal, The Plantation should fit the bill nicely.

There’s a strong hint of the 1920s in the decor, and the menu has the kind of breadth and luxury that you would associate with that dizzyingly decadent age.

We loved the crispy pork belly and had some awesome tiger prawns to go alongside it. The desserts are top notch too.

Fire @ W Bali

Fire emphasizes fun in their fine dining. For us, it’s a culinary destination that we love to visit on a special occasion.

They are always happy to process a special request, and if you let them know it’s someone’s birthday, you’ll get a birthday cake and a rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday” from the staff, too.

Let them know if it’s your first time at Fire because you’ll get a complimentary drink and an introductory tour!

Boy N Cow

Who, apart from vegans, wouldn’t love a restaurant that describes itself as a “meat boutique”? Yes, they’re all about the steaks at Boy N Cow.

You’re in the right place if you want dry-aged wagyu and the tenderest steak tartare in history.

You need to book in advance, though. It’s always a sign that you’re eating in one of the best restaurants because of how busy it can get.

Ayung is perfect if you want a romantic dinner and some of the most upscale Balinese cuisine on the island.

Head Chef Suta is famous for his passion for traditional recipes and seasonal ingredients of the freshest kind.

The Lombok Lobster is the kind of creation that will have you calling your friends to rave about it.

Vegetarians will be pleased to know that one of the degustation menus has no meat in it at all.

This is also the only restaurant in Indonesia that is in the Les Grandes Table du Monde association. An exclusive club for Michelin-level excellence.

Restaurant Locavore

You will need to book a long way in advance to be sure of getting a table at Locavore. It’s one of the most popular places on the island.

It ranks in the top 50 restaurants in Asia and is Indonesia’s only representative on that list!

The food is sourced from local farms to celebrate Indonesia and its culinary heritage. It’s mouth-wateringly awesome.

BLANCO Par Mandif

Madiff Warokka is one of Indonesia’s most prominent celebrity chefs, and as you’d expect, it’s not because he’s a lousy cook.

This stylish place has only 28 seats, and competition for them is fierce. Try the poached Jimbaran Bay Rock Lobster, and you’ll soon see why.

We hear he has ambitions to be the first Michelin-rated Indonesian chef, we think he will succeed.

If you want the finest foodstuffs from around the world, you will find them in CasCades.

Be it Avruga Caviar or Canadian lobster, they will only source if it makes the food taste just that bit better.

We love the views from the restaurant too. It’s also worth noting that this is an Australian-owned and run restaurant.

Aperitif

The hotel grows much of its own produce in greenhouses onsite, and Apertifi turns that produce into world-class food offerings.

The multi-course degustation menu is an absolute must, with highlights such as a Venison Wellington with foie gras and rendang!

And as you might expect in a restaurant called Aperitif, the aperitifs are a real star of the show here, too.

If you want a secluded setting a long way from the roads, this is your restaurant, but be prepared to spend twenty minutes walking from your car to the front door.

And if you don’t want to walk and build up your appetite? Call ahead, and they’ll send a scooter to pick you up.

Il Ristorante – Luca Fantin

This 36-seat Italian restaurant is ideal for a romantic dinner. They will happily amend anything on the menu to your preferences, which is lovely.

We can heartily recommend the 5 or 7-course tasting menus to get a good idea of what Il Ristorante is about before diving into the a la carte side of things on a repeat visit. And you will want to go back.

AKASA is best approached at sunset for the stunning view, and then you can move on to the dining, which is equally as good.

The corn-fed whole chicken stood out as a high-quality bird, and the truffle mashed potato was the perfect side dish.

We’ll be back for more at AKASA.

The Warung

The Warung is one of the most spectacularly attractive resort complexes in Bali, and it’s worth going just for the view.

They also do an excellent sharing plate if you want to sample the menu before committing to anything.
