Where To Eat In Canggu, Bali


 Guide To Eating Out In Canggu

Crate Café

Crate was one of my favourite places to go for brunch in Canggu. It’s open until about 4pm and serves a range of healthy, organic meals and also more glutinous options, such as their French toast with maple syrup, bacon and scrambled eggs. Phenomenal.

They always gave a really decent portion size too, which is great if you’re on a budget and want to something filling for the day. A typical meal their cost around 50 IDR (approximately £3).

We ate at Crate quite a few times as you can see from the array of dishes below. Their iced coffee and raw cacao smoothies were pretty special too – can’t recommend trying this place enough. The downside is that it has quite an industrial feel to it and the seats aren’t that comfy, but the food more than makes up for it.

Betelnut Cafe

We stopped by here for lunch and smoothies after ogling at the food being brought out. Their smoothies were some of my favourite on the island – I had the Berrilious which had Bee Pollen, Goji Berries, Nomi - basically all the super foods you could want.

For lunch, I opted for their veggie burrito wrap which came with homemade nachos. It tasted ridiculously good and also felt pretty healthy. This place has more of a laid back, cosier feel to it. A must if you’re in Canggu.

The Lawn

If you’re looking for an upmarket place to have dinner, with stunning sunset views then you will love The Lawn. The atmosphere is really nice and there was often live jazz music. In the day time the venue serves as more of a beach bar, with its own infinity pool and loungers. In the evening, it’s converts into a sophisticated beach bar and restaurant.

The food was super tasty and well priced considering the quality. For backpackers on a budget it may be a little expensive, but a main meal was no more than 90-120 IDR (£5-8).

I recommend trying the truffle mac and cheese balls – they were unreal.

Black Shores

Black Shores is a cool, rooftop cocktail bar (next to Billabong on the main high street). Seriously recommend this place for drinks and evening bites - their cocktail and supper menu is off the scale.

They also run happy hour from 6-8pm, where you can get half price cocktails or anything to eat on their menu and any cocktail for 100 IDR (approx. £6), which is great if you're travelling on a budget. On Friday's they also have a really cool night with live DJs - you have to check it out.

Café Organic

Café Organic is the place to go for healthy breakfasts, lunches and raw desserts. If you need to recover from a late night, the food and smoothies here will make you feel a whole lot better. Located on the main high street, they offer fresh juices, acai smoothie bowls, and traditional brunch dishes with a healthy twist.

I opted for eggs Benedict, whilst Lou had the Pineapple fruit and yogurt dish. Super yummy – definitely recommend trying here!

Our friends at the hostel introduced us to this boutique restaurant called Dandelion. It was a short walk from where we staying and when we turned up there was a queue for a table, so I recommend booking in advance if you can. The restaurant is half open and candle lit, giving it a romantic, tropical feel.

For starter, I had the chicken dumplings in satay sauce. The portion sizes are modest, but they tasted amazing. For my main, I had a tuna steak with sweet potato wedges. One of the best meals I had in Canggu and really well priced.

Old Mans 

Old Mans is a laid-back, beach front bar - although it's more of a place you go for cocktails or drinks, we had food there on our first night in Canggu and it was really good. They have a pretty standard menu ranging from pasta, burgers, and salads to more traditional Balinese noodle and rice dishes. The atmosphere is really nice, it's a great spot if you want an informal drink and meal.

Old Mans livens up in the evening and is a great spot for happy hour and going out for drinks.
