Updated: 26/09/2022

Where is the best place to eat in Seminyak? In a city where a new restaurant seems to be opening every week, this has become one of the most commonly asked (and difficult to answer) questions from visitors to Bali. We have decided to narrow the selection by giving you our 15 favourite Seminyak restaurants to indulge in a gourmet, upscale dining experience. Happy dining everyone!

1. Ultimo Restaurant

Having moved to a new building down the street, the new Ultimo Restaurants offers a different experience from its predecessor. Its high-terraced upscale dining area becomes a vantage point to the busy street below. The wide steps leading to it are converted into a lounge area, perfect for those looking for a more relaxed environment. The upgraded Italian menu goes well with the contemporary atmosphere the venue is going for.

2. KU DE TA

Having no set theme for its menu is not a setback for KU DE TA to highlight the seasonal ingredients it is inspired by. The range of food offered at the oceanside restaurant is very extensive, as it changes throughout the day. Beverages offered at KU DE TA also vary, from the non-alcoholic (coffees, mocktails, and juices) to alcoholic ones (beer, wine, hand-crafted cocktails). The kids’ menu is available from 12 pm, making this venue a perfect place for a family lunch and dinner. For the more adventurous adults, a selection of fruit-flavoured shishas is available upon request, along with tobacco products.

3. Mama San

A relatively new kid on Seminyak’s foodie block, Mama San has quickly earned a reputation as an innovative and fresh restaurant here in Bali. Home to an Asian fusion-inspired kitchen, the starters and main dishes complement each other well and are intended to be shared in a sampling style. The beef and bamboo dumplings along with the clay pot snapper never fail to impress. The energy is buzzing, the tables intimate, and the bill is affordable for its quality. Reservations required; book far in advance if possible.

Part of the Sarong Group, they also have a restaurant in Ubud called Hujan Locale. Equally amazing!
