VINCENT'S VINCENTSBALI.COM Vincent's is not only, without doubt, the best restaurant in Candidasa, it is also one of my favourites on the whole island. There is a wonderful ambiance (ask for a table in the garden at the back, it's quite magical). Both the traditional Balinese food, and their contemporary Western menu, is excellent, and the service is efficient and friendly. If you're in Candidasa on a Thursday don't miss the "lazy jazz" night from 6pm to 9pm (which happens every week) - the artists are all extremely talented and it's a wonderful night out. Because it's popular you should book - then ask for a table in the garden that has a view of the musicians - the best of both worlds! Vincent's is an easy stroll from Villa Cocoa Maya but, like most restaurants in Candidasa, they also offer a complimentary pick-up and drop-off service which our staff is happy to arrange for you.
