Having over indulged at too many Canggu restaurants in the past six months, we’ve put together a foodie’s guide to the best restaurants in Canggu.
Canggu Restaurants Guide – The 19 Best Restaurants In Canggu
What To Pack? We’ve put together our Ultimate Travel Packing List for every type of trip.
Getting around Canggu couldn’t be easier. There are generally 3 options:
RENT A SCOOTER:
We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves.
However be sure to read up on our Renting A Scooter In Bali guide beforehand!
Most accommodations will allow you to store your big bags with them, even after checkout.
So if you’re comfortable on two wheels, and looking for somewhere to rent scooters from, you can book a trusted scooter rental here.
HIRE A DRIVER:
Another option is to rent a driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours).
You can opt for standard 5 seater vans, or larger minibuses for bigger groups.
This is a great option for those looking to design their own itinerary. Simply jump in, tell you driver exactly where you wish to go, and he’ll navigate the most efficient route.
If you’re looking for for a reliable service, you can book a private car with a driver for the day here.
TAKE A TOUR:
Some of the best days out we’ve had in Bali have been on private tours.
For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.
There’s even a Bali: Full-Day Instagram Highlights Tour, for those looking to photograph its most recognisable locations.
From sunrise hikes, to waterfall treks and island hopping, there’s plenty to keep you busy on the bustling island!

Garden Canggu By Pizza House – @gardencanggu
Selling huge, delicious wood fire pizza and the best Choco – Ado smoothies, this place has it all one.
The summery salads and fruity drinks are perfect for the daytime. Or the cosy lighting and tasty pizzas set the scene in the evening. The vintage style furniture and shack style roofs make it a really cool place to hang out with friends.

Ji Restaurant – @jirestaurantbali
Ji Restaurant Canggu is one of the most beautifully designed restaurants we’ve visited and home to the best Japanese cuisine in Canggu.

Ji Restaurant Canggu has really set a high standard for us now and they had dishes our taste buds will not forget.

One of the best restaurants in Canggu for evening ambience!
The Savage Kitchen – @thesavagekitchenbali
The Savage Kitchen Bali is one of the cosiest spots in Canggu.

Easily one of the best restaurants in Canggu!
Roti Daal – @rotidaalasia
After a very long time without Indian food, all of our senses were screaming out loud when we walked into Roti Daal – the homestyle Indian restaurant.
Proudly presenting a menu that changes daily, as well as dishes that are low in oil, low in spice and not using any preservatives or added colours it was a dream place to eat for vegans or vegetarians.
The spices, herbs and vegetables were bursting with flavour amongst all the colourful choices of food. Roti Daal introduce a unique concept where you can try up to 130 dishes a month if you like. A thali is the perfect way to try all the different options on display and sample some of the seasonal, fresh produce and recipes inspired by different parts of India. The best Indian food in Bali!
