Where to Eat in Canggu: The Best Restaurants and Bars

July 29, 2017 Franklyn Hardiman

Canggu is a coastal village and 10 km beach on the south coast of Bali, Indonesia. It lies approximately 10 kilometers north of Kuta, and presents a much more relaxing atmosphere of dining, cultural and beach activities. The main Canggu streets are Jalan Batu Bolong, Jalan Padang Linjong, Jalan Batu Mejan and Jalan Tanah Barak. Along Jalan Batu Bolong you find the temple of the dead, Pura Merajapati, and the Pipitan Cemetery. Along the beach there are two main temples, Pura Batu Bolong and Pura Batu Mejan, which are both hundreds of years old and were initiated for building by Dang Hyang Nirartha. The Canggu area used to have scenic views of paddy fields and coconut groves but current rapid developments are quickly replacing these traditional views with private villas.

Reviewed By MN00000

I’m vegan and not by choice. Quite sensitive to some animal products specially egg, that would put me in the hospital for sure.
For the first time in this place I asked for vegan burger and ask to make sure that there is no animal products on the plate.
The sauce on my plate was a mix of yogurt and mayo (egg+oil). They changed it and I asked for a second time to make sure that there is no animal products in that, so they brought me plain mayo.
The staff has no idea what is in the food. So if you have any food allergies, avoid this place!!!!
I have to add that the food was also horrible.

Reviewed By CarolAnn H - Sydney, Australia

Went on recommendation of our driver Petu-it took us a few days to muster up the courage as French/Chinese cuisine wasn’t whetting our appetites! What a great surprise-the dumplings were fat, juicy & flavorsome. The mains-I has the slow cooked pork belly bowl & my husband had the forest-a chicken dish with oyster sauce cooked in cream-delish! Huge portions! Our baby daughter-loved the dumplings & slow cooked pork! Definitely worth a try!
Excellent value for money too!

Reviewed By Indigo S - Bali, Indonesia

Fave hangout spot for my husband and I when we go on those date nights. Being a social drinker, I don't usually drink but when I do it has to be a special place. My favorite is still that Elderflowers sangria.
Mostly we go for dinner there. They recently open for Sunday brunch as well. Pretty good selection, I just hope they offer more of a sashimi selection - like in their dinner menu.
