Warung Melati (lunch only!)
If you’re into real authentic Indonesian food, you will want to visit Warung Melati, located in a little laneway off Jalan Nakula in Double Six area of Seminyak. This Javanese warung is open from 11 am until somewhere in the afternoon, depending on when the food is finished. Everything is super fresh and delicious, vegetarian-friendly and the staff is super friendly. It’s one of my favourite places to eat in Seminyak. Authentic, cheap, fresh, gotta love it!
Similar to Warung Melati, Warung Murah is a place to get your taste of authentic Indonesian food. This warung is Balinese-owned and you can try traditional Balinese Ayam Betutu (chicken in lemongrass curry). Delicious! Warung Murah is open from early morning until late in the evening, great for breakfast (A good local one!), brunch, lunch and dinner. It works like this; you pick you rice and the dishes you like from display.
The hipper version of the local Indonesian ‘nasi campur’, Wabi Sabi serves healthy food and lots of vegetarian options. You can just pick what you like from display or order ala carte. I loved coming here with my toddler if I had trouble feeding her. They’ve got pasta and lasagna but also broccoli, mashed potato and chicken. A little bit of everything doesn’t cost too much at all and I would be sure she would have her share of healthy food. Perfect place to stop after a days shopping with the girls.
Ginger Moon is a fabulous Asian fusion restaurant on Oberoi Street (Eat Street/Kayu aya Street). Really cool, stylish interiors, professional staff and delicious food, it’s a must-visit. The cocktails are really good as well and the overall vibe is awesome. Want to try a little bit of everything? Ginger Moon has delightful options for sharing. In fact, the menu, created by head chef Dean Kedell, was created with sharing in mind.
Refined Asian and Indian cuisine and a wonderful open-air setting, a cocktail bar and gorgeous interiors, Sarong is probably the best-known restaurant in all of Seminyak. The kitchen is run by the famous street food chef Will Meyrick (the man behind Mama San, Som Chai and Tiger Palm). You can be sure of an exquisite dining experience at this classy restaurant on the Petitenget Strip.
This fabulous restaurant in Petitenget boasts a beautiful garden with rice field views. Your chef is the French Nicolas ‘DouDou’ Tourneville. French Mediterranean cuisine, outstanding services and a chic, fine-dining setting, Metis should be on your list of must-visit restaurants in Seminyak. The Afternoon Tea is pretty great, as well and the wine list is truly impressive!
