THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN CANGGU

1) Crate Cafe

Crate is a super-popular cafe with the best salads and smoothies in Canggu. Crate Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch and is packed the whole time with an upbeat vibe. Unfortunately, you can’t reserve a table, and it’s a matter of waiting till someone finishes eating till you get a table, so there may be a wait. But, once seated, it’s worth it as it’s got an extensive salad and wrap menu with many healthy options for those wanting to keep the calories off. Crate is one of the first mega popular restaurants in Canggu and has evolved into a must-see tourist hand for lunch. Most diners here are straight from the beach in boardshorts or bikinis, so be prepared for lots of beautiful bodies. A DJ plays tunes, which adds to the hip and casual holiday vibe as you munch away under the tin shed roof. For the sheer experience, Crate should definitely be the first place you visit in Canggu for lunch. Check the video, and you will see what we mean!

We Recommend The Super Bowls and Brekkie dishes.

Address: Jl Canggu Padang Linjong 49, Canggu, Bali

2) Da Romeo

One of the best Italian restaurants in Berawa, Canggu, is Da Romeo. Freshly baked pizzas, delish pasta, and a very informal, family-friendly vibe. Da Romeo is a great place to come with the whole crew and enjoy tasty pizzas and cocktails without too much hype or fuss. They also do great pizza home delivery if you wanna hang in the villa for the night. Look them up on Consider Da Romeo; your local pizza hangs for those big munch-out sessions without spending a fortune if you are staying in a Berawa holiday villa.

Address: Jl. Pantai Berawa, Canggu

3) Pels Supershop

Pels is on Jl Pantai Berawa in the heart of all the action of the Berawa/Canggu restaurant scene. It’s where you come for tasty salad and super healthy vegan bowls as you watch the world go by. As a vegan restaurant, it’s as casual as you would expect and makes the perfect pit stop as you spend the day browsing the shops in Berawa. Pels was one of the original salad/healthy cafes in Canggu and is still going strong as customers keep coming back for the decent portions and delicious dishes. It opens every day until 8 PM, but we recommend Pels as a lunch venue. Pels is one of our favs in Canggu!

We recommend: Biker Smoothie Bowl, The Fully Tabbouleh Salad and Avo Good Day

Address: Jl. Pantai Berawa No.46, Canggu

4) The Lawn

The Lawn in Batu Bolong needs no introduction for holidaymakers that have been to Canggu before. With its front row beach position and shimmering infinity pool looking into the ocean, The Lawn is party central and one of the most famous beach clubs in the area. Oh yes, did we mention the food? It’s all about nibblies and sharing platters of culinary delights as you sip on cocktails and enjoy those island tropical vibes. The Lawn is super-chilled, and all the beautiful people from Canggu and Bali come here to top up their tans, mingle, enjoy some afternoon drinks, Sunday sessions and, of course, the sensational food. The Lawn is family-friendly with a kiddies menu, so come with your mates or the whole family for a fun day out.

We recommend Burrata Tagliatelle, Fish and Chips, and burgers for the kids.

Visit:  The Lawn

Address: Jl Pura Dalem, Canggu, p. +62 361 6200 602 / +62 811 3800 4951. Open Mon – Thu 3pm – 10pm, Fri 12pm – 11pm, Sat and Sunday 12pm – 10pm.

5) BAKED

BAKED is one of those restaurants, well, let’s call it a bakery where the queues are the whole day. Any why, because the croissants, creamy poached eggs, and hand-made fresh-out-of-the-oven sourdough bread, scrumptious bagels are to die for. BAKED has become so popular that there are now two locations; one in the heart of Berawa and one in the upcoming Pererenan area. Remember, you can always take these oh-so-yummy bagels  or banana bread back to your Canggu holiday villa for a mid-afternoon munch-out session. The vibe at BAKED is fun, young and super-casual and makes the perfect pit stop after an early morning surf session at Berawa Beach or surviving the Canggu shortcut on your scooter. Prices are easy on the wallet and make a great venue to take the kids for brunch or late arvo refuel. Oh yes, they happen to have amazing coffee as well!

Visit: BAKED

Address: Jl. Raya Semat Gg. Kupu kupu No.1, Tibubeneng, Berawa.

6) Skool Kitchen

If you want an extraordinary dining experience and be at one of Bali’s most hip and happening locations, Batu Bolong Beach, then for a treat, head to Skool Kitchen at The Lawn. The space is private and intimate, which adds to the backdrop of the waves crashing in the background. Expect to be treated to fine five-star dining as you sample fresh, tasty cuisine, wine and cocktails. Skool Kitchen is where you come for the views, the ambience and the famous The Lawn (for some after partying). Expect pure, simple cuisine where every dish is cooked with natural wood and charcoal embers. Skool is a collaboration between Tai Buddha (The Lawn, Times, Single Fin) and Adam McAsey (Bikini, Sisterfields, Bossman), so you know that the experience will be memorable as these guys have created restaurant and cafe institutions in Bali. If you’re staying in Seminyak is worth your while to make the trip over to Canggu for the experience and if you are in the Canggu area, make a booking as you will love the dining experience. Skool is not the most family-friendly restaurant, so come here for a romantic night out or intimate dinner with close friends.

We recommend the crispy pork belly, pickled mustard seeds and the Chocolate Martini.

Visit Skool Kitchen

Address: Jl. Pura Dalem, Canggu, p. +62 361 6200 603 / +62 811 3800 4952. Open Mon – Sat from 6pm.

About the author

Steven is part of the marketing team that works for Bali Villa Escapes. Steven is passionate about Bali and loves the people, culture and the surf. Steven is the author of many travel guides on this website and has taken lots of informative videos which you watch on our Bali Villa Escapes YouTube channel so you can get a better idea of where to go, where to shop, what it's like in Bali, what to do and what not to do plus some of the quirky things that often happen on the island. Steven identified a problem with the normal Bali villa booking process; namely that if the villa you wanted was booked out, you had to go back to the drawing board and trawl through hundreds of villas listings to find a similar one. This was a common issue among the larger villa website and Online Travel Agents. People wanted to speak or have contact with a real person with intimate knowledge of Bali and get as much information as they can about their prospective holiday villa options.

'Every time I come to Bali I try to take as many videos as I can so fellow travellers will have a better understanding of the areas they intend to visit such as Seminyak, Canggu, Berawa and Legian'.
