The 40 Best Vegan Restaurants, Bali – Where To Find The Tastiest Vegan Food On The Island
There are plenty of vegan restaurants in Bali, thanks to the island’s mainly Hindi and Buddhist population.
Vegan food is easy to find everywhere and the only question is, “Which vegan restaurants in Bali are worth your time?”
Well, we’ve got a guide to the 40 top vegan restaurants on the island and we think you’ll love the vegan food they serve.
Each of these most popular vegan restaurants meets the standards set by our plant-based food lovers at Finns.
The 40 Best Vegan Restaurants in Bali – Your Must-Eat Guide To Vegan Food On The Island
Pels is all about imitation meats and their lasagne is enough to convince even a carnivore that a vegan restaurant doesn’t need to be a bad place to eat.
Their plant-based food also looks pretty good on Instagram if you want something to show off to the folks back home.
And frankly, we can all use a fresh salad now and again, right?

I Am Vegan Babe
This is one of the most vegan restaurants in Bali, but it’s only open during the day. If you get to I Am Vegan Babe after 4:30 p.m., you won’t have any vegan food here.
Their tasty dishes are good for non-vegans, though we note that their cinnamon roll is probably not a very healthy meal, no matter how good it tastes.
Vegan foodies tend to congregate at I Am Vegan Babe for breakfasts made of fresh ingredients.

Not so secret anymore, Secret Spot has several branches in Bali because it’s one of the best vegan restaurants here.
However, we think the best is their Berawa branch. The gluten-free lasagne is one of our favourites. Don’t expect authentic Asian flavours here, as they tend to focus on Westernized food to delight your taste buds.

The Shady Shack
This vegetarian restaurant is vegan-friendly and you can always ask them to adjust anything not to your liking. Shady Shack staff are always friendly and helpful.
Their vegan cheese makes for a good cheeseburger, and their Nori Bowl is very popular too.
We like that you can sit under a palm tree while drinking an ice-cold coconut at the Shady Shack.

Zest says it’s “powered by plants but made for people”. Their salad bowl is a stand-out offering that shows it’s one of the best vegan restaurants in Bali.
One thing we like about Zest is how it’s decorated in the local style and they always use fresh local ingredients.
They partner with farms and organic producers on the island to ensure the food is sustainable and tasty.

One of the best vegan restaurants in Bali is Roots. Their delicious vegan food offers the best of traditional spices and big local ingredients.
They have an extensive menu that includes everything from smoothie bowls and healthy salads to gluten-free plant-based delights like their Coconut Pandan Waffle.
Where Is It? Jl. Pantai Pererenan No.121, Pererenan, Kec. Mengwi, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80351, Indonesia
Plenty of vegan choices are on the menu at this plant-based fine dining establishment. Everything on the delicious menu is sourced locally and is super fresh.
They try to focus on international dishes with a Balinese twist to ensure that your healthy lifestyle always stays exciting here.
Where Is It? Jl. Cempaka, MAS, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
It’s not the prettiest restaurant, but you can get them to make most things in a vegan form and though Bali has more Instagrammable spots, Crate’s cheap and the portions are generous.
It’s vegan heaven for backpackers and those on a tight budget looking to maintain their plant-based diet in Bali.
Their vegan burgers are pretty good, but the salad bowls steal the show.
Where Is It? Jl. Canggu Padang Linjong No.49F, Canggu, Kec. Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80351, Indonesia
If your favourite plant-based eating options include lots of hummus and falafel, then the Felafel Temple has you covered.
Falafel Temple is a little hard to spot when you first visit, so make sure to look very carefully.
The food at Falafel Temple is not 100% vegan, but you can ask before ordering, and their staff will be happy to help.
If you want a feast try the Falafel Temple mezze platter and bring friends if you want to finish it. Middle Eastern cuisine has never tasted so good.
Where Is It? Jl. Pantai Berawa No.35, Tibubeneng, Kec. Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
This is one of Canggu’s newest and hippest hangouts. They have super tasty vegan food that makes non-vegans wish they were vegan. It’s one of our best vegan restaurants easily.
We love the cocktails here, too and think everyone should visit once during happy hour. That’s 5 – 7 p.m.
Check out their sweet potato fries and garlic sauce! The garlic sauce is to die for! Plant-based grub doesn’t get better than this.
Where Is It? Jl. Subak Sari, Canggu, Kec. Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
The same group owns this as Pels and it’s a very casual cafe that serves a completely vegan menu (as you’d expect from vegan restaurants in Bali).
Their plant-based burritos are really good and nearly everything here is worthy of a few snaps for your Instagram account.
We also recommend walking in the vicinity after a heavy lunch because the area is crammed with local independent boutique stores with some amazing clothes and other products.

Kasto Italian Vegan Restaurant & Pizza
There’s something to be said for a hearty Italian meal made the way it would be in an Italian mum’s kitchen.
And that’s the experience you get at this wonderful vegan restaurant in Bali.
It’s the place to dive into vegan pizzas, wolf-down gourmet salads containing nothing but the freshest ingredients, and then settle down to the serious business of trying the tapas.
There’s nothing that can’t be enjoyed like Italian vegan dishes here, it’s amazing food.

Earth Café and Market
If there’s anything we love better than vegan restaurants in Bali, it’s vegan restaurants with a market on the side so we can buy our products and take them home!
The market sells tasty food, eco-friendly clothing, and cosmetic products.
They do an excellent seitan steak here and the smoothie bowls are a solid way to start the day.
If you can’t get to this branch, then you can always go to the one in Seminyak, instead.

LN Fortunate Coffee Bali
This is a franchised restaurant hailing from Taiwan and while you won’t find any artisan Chinese teas here, you will find plenty to like in your quest for sustainable living.
The Nasi Goreng with olive is awesome and the mushroom satay captures the essence of the peanuts!
Our favourite, however, is the fried beancurd and Orix sauce combo, which just rocks out in your mouth!

Some vegan restaurants in Bali are all about the food and some about the setting; at Alchemy, they’re about both.
You’ll never complain about the Instagram snaps you get here; the customized food bowls are awesome.
But our biggest win is their plant-based ice cream, which is absolutely out of this world!

This cafe is pretty cool it’s very casual in nature and not only do they serve raw living foods and vegan bowls that are full of local taste and flavour, but they teach vegan cooking too.
You want to take advantage of their signature Tempeh Taco Crumble Salad dish. Its sharp hints of lime against a background of avocado and tomato are guaranteed to leave you wanting more.
You might be signing up for a class to learn how to make it before you finish the bowl!

If you want the dankest vegan ice cream on the island, you’ll find it at the Mad Pops vegan ice cream parlour in Seminyak.
Not only do they have more flavours of vegan treats than we’ve ever seen before, but they’ve matched the mad flavours to the mad decor!
It’s like going back in time to a nostalgia-tinged slice of the 80s but with much, much better food. If it all tastes like this, plant-based ice cream will take the world by storm.
The amazing thing about this all-vegan restaurant is that they use fresh ingredients to achieve their taste sensations! Mad Pops is an institution in Bali already and it suggests what the future might look like if vegan cafes up their game.

This is one of Ubud’s great vegan restaurants of Ubud and it’s so good at making the food look awesome that you’ll find it hard to believe it’s plant-based.
They also have a permaculture garden to draw from of their own!
Their Balinese dishes are delicately combined with a vegan twist to ensure you can eat locally, support local farmers and never have a bad meal.
The eggplant rendang is famous across the island and the raw lasagna is a very interesting take on that Italian classic.
And make sure to take advantage of the panna cotta. It’s the best dessert in Ubud.

We love this plant-based, earth-friendly restaurant near Ubud. It’s set in the rice fields on the jungle’s edge in a truly breathtaking setting.
They support both vegan and raw vegan menus, which is great for those trying to keep their plant-based eating as pure as possible.
They do an incredible Pad Thai and one of our friends raves about their Jackfruit Pizzas, but, most of all, make sure to take advantage of the cheesecake for dessert, it’s yummy!
Where Is It? Jl. Sinta, Keliki, Kec. Tegallalang, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80561, Indonesia
Sayuri Healing Food
Sayuri Healing Food is a very wholesome place that looks to keep the food as clean as possible.
You will find no animal products (including no dairy), no soy, no gluten, no wheat, and nothing else bad for you here.
Their menu is ultra-creative and they look to create a leading-edge collection of dishes that will wow even the most sceptical non-vegan.
They also offer raw vegan food classes if you want to learn to make vegan dishes like they do!

If your idea of a good feed is a near-endless salad bowl followed by a huge main course and a generous dessert, then Sage may be what you’re looking for.
We like the fact that this restaurant also has a bakery on-site, so you can pick up some bread and take it home with you too.
They are famed for their tasty carrot cake too and if you like things sweet, you will love it.
They have some of the freshest and most healthy juices on the island too and they’re so delicious!
Where Is It? Emas, Jl. Nyuh Bulan No.1, MAS, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
This vegan restaurant in Seminyak is a little on the small side, but what it lacks in stature, it makes up for in heart. They put flavour first at this vegan restaurant and it shows.
If you thought vegan meant settling for something less, wait until you’ve tried all the food here. From Vegan Boba to an awesome Vegan Rendang, they’ve got Southeast Asian cuisine down pat.
But they also have incredible plant-based pizzas and other Aussie dishes made of tasty fresh veggies.
If you’re on a plant-based diet and passing through Seminyak, make sure to hunt down Tasty, it’s worth it.

Seeds of Life
This cafe is about more than just great vegan choices. It’s also into yoga and “holographic kinetics”!
Go to eat, stay to soak up the atmosphere and get involved in healthy activities. We can recommend Ashtanga Yoga to unwind.

Sakti Dining Room
This gorgeous place serves the kind of food you’d expect in a Michelin-starred restaurant. It’s on the banks of the Ayung River, in tropical gardens and you must stop for some photos before you eat.
It’s not the cheapest option among the vegan restaurants here, but it was one of the best.

Swasti Beloved Cafe
You will love this cafe if you like the “farm-to-table” concept. The food is grown as locally as possible (often on the land directly next to the cafe) and everything is made daily to order and always fresh.
They do serve fish and some non-vegan options, but they always make sure to keep the two entirely separate.
Where Is It? Banjar Nyuh Kuning, Jl. Nyuh Bojog, MAS, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
The Elephant revels in its reputation for good, honest, slow food and its vegetarian approach.
They are happy to make things plant-based on request and frankly, it’s such a nice place to be that many people dig in for the whole day as they work their way through the cocktail menu.
We love their Vietnamese pancakes which must be the best Vietnamese food on the island.

My Bella by Sage
This is a sister to the Sage and it’s all about vegan Italian food. It’s a very sophisticated place and you might want to dress to impress for your visit here.
However, the food is unpretentious and the taro gnocchi and pizzas represent a menu that embodies the spirit of Italy.
They also have a vegan benedict early in the day that makes for one of the best breakfasts we’ve ever had.
Where Is It? Jl. Penestanan, Sayan, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
KYND community is a plant-based eatery that not only makes great food but presents it in a way that you’ll reach for your camera as soon as you walk in the door.
The best thing about the KYND community, however, is that it gives all of its 100% profits to a local charitable organization.
So, as you eat at KYND community, your money is off helping to save local villages or ensure that someone has a proper education. We can all feel good about that, right?

Dumbo, as you might expect, is the sister restaurant of The Elephant mentioned above.
It’s a wood-fired Italian focusing on plain, simple food that tastes awesome and is in harmony with the planet we live on.
Don’t miss the house special, the Arancini Ala Dumbo, one of the best ravioli dishes we’ve ever tasted.
Also, for every dollar spent here, they donate some of their profits to protecting Orang Utans in Indonesian Borneo!

It’s not a 100% vegan place. Nook still has decent vegan options from Balinese and Western cooking cultures.
They have a nice gado gado without egg that somehow really works.

KOOD – Kolarborasi Untuk Desa
This is the most reasonably priced vegan place in Bali, probably because it runs on a self-service basis.
Try the Mie Yamin, their signature dish of tofu, tempeh and a sweet but spicy sauce.
Where Is It? Jl. Kutat Lestari No.2, Sanur Kauh, Denpasar Selatan, Kota Denpasar, Bali 80228, Indonesia
Not 100% vegan, Drifter Surf’s beloved cafe knows what vegans want and ensures all vegan items are kept separate from other menu items.
Check out the chickpea curry, it’s the perfect pre-surfing warm-up.

We love the vegan meatballs they put with tomato-based pasta at this restaurant.
Chickpea is where you will find it if you need vegan comfort food. It’s quite a cosy place too.

Vegan Soul Kitchen
If you’re out on Nusa Penida, this is that small island’s best vegan place. It has an all-vegan menu and a vegetarian one too.
Find it near the jungle and try their veggie burgers and stay tempeh. It’s great.
Where Is It? 7GV3+4Q3, Unnamed Road, Sakti, Kec. Nusa Penida, Kabupaten Klungkung, Bali 80771, Indonesia
Set among the rice paddies, this vegan place has a real flair not just for food but for colour and presentation too.
This is the first time we’ve seen such eye-catching dishes. We can’t stop eating their chia pudding when we visit, either.

Bodhi Leaf Eatery
The Bodhi Leaf Eatery is a wonderful, budget-friendly vegan option in Denpasar.
They have a dedicated vegan menu to order from and focus on Asian favourites from Southeast and East Asia, but they do have some nods to Western cuisine too.
Where Is It? Jl. Letda Made Putra No.2B, Dauh Puri, Kec. Denpasar Bar., Kota Denpasar, Bali 80232, Indonesia
Yes, they’re all about the doughnuts. That’s all they make at this little cafe and bakery; they are super tasty.
If you need a quick sugar hit, this vegan place is for you.

After a day’s surfing, there’s no better place to stop for a plant-based feed than Nalu Bowls.
You might also fancy going there for breakfast and their excellent smoothie bowls.

The Cashew Tree In Bingin
This is one of the best-established vegan joints on the island and they’re famous locally for their “vegan Big Mac”.
They also have live music on at night if you want to relax with vegan friends and let your meal digest before moving on.
Where Is It? Jl. Pantai Bingin No.9, Pecatu, Kec. Kuta Sel., Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
Finns Beach Club
Finns no longer has an exclusively vegan menu, but the best beach club in the world has plenty of vegan food on-site on our various menus and restaurants. If you want modifications to a dish, you can just ask your server for them.
If you want plant-based dishes in Canggu’s coolest setting, you can go to Finns. You don’t have to eat at exclusively vegan places in Bali to get great vegan meals. Our vegan burger at St. Tropez is legendary but by far not your only choice when visiting us.

Final Thoughts On The Best Vegan Restaurants Bali
Yes, Bali is full of awesome vegan options, and there are barely any alfalfa sprouts in sight. Instead, you’re looking at tempeh ribs, sweet potato chips, and much more!
Going plant-based is an ethical and healthy choice, but it doesn’t mean your food needs to be boring.
Plant-based food in Bali is vibrant, exciting and fun and you have plenty of places to choose from when it comes to eating out!
There are also plenty of vegetarian restaurants that can quickly adapt what you want to your needs, so don’t write off the vegetarian restaurants, they can be really good.
