There is so much to see and do in southern Bali that you will need some help to focus! Our Insiders Guide with help with that.
CHANDI CHANDIBALI.COM Chandi is one of my favourite favourites! Firstly, it has the best Bloody Mary you'll ever taste (ask them to adjust the spiciness to your taste - it can get hot!) In fact, they have an amazing cocktail menu in general. Secondly, the food is excellent - contemporary Pan-Asian food with a twist that is made for sharing. They have a lighter, less expensive lunch time menu and a large dinner menu that changes often - all delicious! Finally, the atmosphere is great, with an opportunity to people- watch on Eat Street, if you sit on their balcony - or you can enjoy the air-conditioned comfort of sitting further inside. BATIK BATIK-BALI.COM I like Batik for lunch because it's always cool and has a lovely light airiness about it. You feel like you're in a colonial Asian home. They have a wide assortment of different kinds of food, all good, and their fruit juices are delicious!
GINGER MOON GINGERMOONBALI.COM New Zealand born, and Australian raised, chef and owner Dean Keddell refers to Ginger Moon as a modern Asian canteen. The food is focused primarily on Indonesia, and Bali in particular. But don't be fooled - while nasi goreng is on the menu, there is a big assortment of tantalising dishes, including steamed buns and a range of seriously delicious Turkish pizzas! They also have a kids' menu and a very nice wine menu. It's always full - with good reason. ULTIMO ULTIMO-BALI.BUSINESS.SITE Such an institution in Seminyak (and so close to Villa Bebek), that we direct everybody to the villa using Ultimo as a landmark - everyone knows it! The food is as good as any you'll eat in Italy, and they still serve the best pasta in town. There's always a great vibe because it's always full. I prefer the front of the restaurant, (around the bar area), and the patio closest to the street. The back of the restaurant can feel a little like you're attending a wedding! If you agree with us, our staff can book for you - the front fills up fast.
