BaliGetaway Recommends 9 Best Restaurants in Ubud Bali Indonesia
1. Bali Bohemia Restaurant
If you are a free spirit who loves art and music, then this Bohemian-themed restaurant beside the Monkey Forest is the place to be. They serve Indonesian, Western, Middle-eastern and other cultural food from around the world, but one must try the Chicken Avocado! This hippie place exhibits artworks by the local artists that are for sale, and hosts music nights, too. To add something to its awesomeness, they have hippie huts available for accommodation!

2. Swept Away Restaurant
Tucked inside The Samaya Ubud, this fancy restaurant overlooks a beautiful river that dining here gives you one of a kind experience. Start with Pulled Chicken in Rice Paper Rolls from their menu if you’re hanging during lunch time. However, having your dinner date here would be a great idea because of its romantic setup. Candle-lit dinner, anyone?

3. Moksa Plant-based Restaurant & Permaculture Garden
This award-winning restaurant situated in the south of Ubud is basically a permaculture garden that brings food and culture from the village of Ubud to the table and then gives back again to the community. Moksa is famous for its 100% organic vegan menu, which is available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The exciting part is that their list is not limited to Indonesian food; they also serve other Asian dishes like Char Kway Teow, Laksa Noodles, and Green Curry. Must try vegan diet in Moksa? Good thing you asked. One should try the Tempeh BBQ Ribs, a delish plate of grilled tempeh that is marinated with their own homemade barbecue sauce, resting on a bed of mashed sweet potatoes.

Another restaurant in Ubud that serves plant-based vegan menu is Sayuri Healing Food. Sayuri aims for everyone who dines there to be healed in the physical, emotional and spiritual level.

6. La Pacha Mama
La Pacha Mama is a Mexican restaurant with a twist. Instead of serving meats with your favorite Mexican dishes, this restaurant in Ubud replaced it with local vegetable produce instead. Tofu Chorizo Tacos and Jackfruit Burritos with Muy Picante Salsas are just among the utterly delicious items on the menu of Bali’s first plant-based Cocina Mexicana.

7. Blanco par Mandif
Indonesian fine dining is what this gastronomy gem offers. Blanco par Mandif serves food depending on the best of the season’s produce, so the menu often changes. Chef Mandif Warokka, the man behind this opulent restaurant, is redefining the Indonesian cuisine with his passion for nurturing the nature and culture of Indonesia through his cooking. Don’t forget to have the delicious Smoked Octopus that has to undergo a long process (like three hours of boiling and then grilling after) before it arrives on your table.

8. Warung Titi
In Indonesia, “Warung” means a family-owned cafe or restaurant, while “Titi” means a small bridge. At Warung Titi, they want to be the bridge between the customers and the Balinese food, culture, and hospitality. This cozy restaurant serves sumptuous Indonesian food at a reasonable price. They take pride in their MSG-free food, and vegetables and spices picked out straight from their garden.
Location: Indonesia, Bali, Gianyar, Ubud, Petulu, Jl. Tirta Tawar No.7171 Ubud

9. Lazy Cats Cafe
“Being lazy does not mean doing nothing; it means dedicating time to yourself, without the need to be productive,” this is what welcomed me when I entered Lazy Cat Cafe, and so I told myself I am in the right place. This rustic cafe gives an old Parisian apartment vibe that makes you want to laze around and order more cuppas, I mean you should because they serve their specialty Ubud Coffee, and munch on something from their wide variety of food available from breakfast to dinner. Choosing an item from their menu was so hard, but I would suggest you order the Lola Bowl, Scrambledilla, Pink Hummus Wrap (mainly because it’s pink), and the rest of the menu. Kidding aside, this spot is frequented by freelancers, camping out with their laptops, I bet the WiFi is that good.
