Having over indulged at too many Seminyak restaurants in the past six months, we’ve put together a foodie’s guide to the best restaurants in Seminyak Bali.
Seminyak Restaurants Guide – The 9 Best Restaurants In Seminyak
What To Pack? We’ve put together our Ultimate Travel Packing List for every type of trip.
Getting around Seminyak 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!

Coffee Cartel Seminyak – @coffeecartelbali
One of our favourite food and coffee spots in Bali, as well as Seminyak.
Not only is the food delicious and the decoration so pretty, but the staff couldn’t be friendlier and more helpful! Plus they can put selfies on your coffee. If you get the chance to visit Coffee Cartel give them a high 5 from us!
Strawberry Fields Seminyak – @strawberryfieldsbali
Strawberry Fields is one of the coolest spots in Seminyak with the prettiest food selection also on offer.
It’s known for its beautifully decorated smoothie bowls and flashy drinks selection. We went a little fruity and overdosed on every strawberry flavoured option on the menu.
Everywhere in Bali makes pretty looking food, but we think Strawberry Fields was the prettiest we found.
Nalu Bowls Seminyak – @nalubowls
The original king of the smoothie bowl, nothing we tried came close to the bowls that Nalu Bowls have to offer.
Not to forget that super chilled outside shot everybody looks for. Nalu Bowls are also dotted around other places in Bali.
Shelter Seminyak – @shelterseminyak
Just upstairs from Nalu Bowls is one of the coolest, as well as greenest, restaurants in Seminyak.
Shelter dishes up some of the tastiest burgers and fruit smoothies, whilst displaying some awesome and inspirational travel murals on its iconic white and green walls.
For somewhere to hang out with friends and eat a little healthy this is definitely one of the best restaurants in Seminyak.
Sea Circus Seminyak – @seacircus
This famous colourful wall art at Sea Circus spread across Instagram in an instant.
Believe us when we say though, the food is just as impressive as the artwork. Sea Circus have nailed a unique style at their quirky diner cafe, ranking high as one of the best restaurants in Seminyak.
Neon Palms Seminyak – @neonpalmsbali
A sister chain to Sea Circus and located just next door!
Neon Palms is essentially a cocktail bar come tapas restaurant and the perfect place to chill and take in the Seminyak vibes. With its recognisable colourful walls and awesome cheetah mural this is a spot definitely not to be missed!
One of the best restaurants in Seminyak to chill with friends in the evenings!
Fatboy’s The Burger Bar Bali – @fatboys_bali
Proudly established as the only burger bar in Bali, Fatboy’s serves up the buns that will put you into retirement.
With a typical American diner layout, and some of the best burger and fries combo’s we’ve ever tasted, if you’re craving a juicy pattie this is your spot!
With chains dotted around Asia we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes peeled for other Fatboy’s on our travels.
Doncaster Eatery – @doncaster.eatery
Located just off the main strip in Seminyak, Doncaster Eatery is a hidden gem!
With its beautiful interior design and simplistic menu we spent an evening at Doncaster Eastery dining in style. It’s classy, chic and the food follows. Their kale salad was the yummiest salad we’ve tried in Bali. They nailed the Balinese style by adding the delicious tempe chips. You must try the signature cocktail if you head to Doncaster Eatery.
Mad Pops Seminyak – @madpopsbali
The strongest vegan ice cream is found at the one and only Mad Pops Bali. So be ready to find all different versions of deliciousness!
Ok, so it technically doesn’t fall into Seminyak restaurants, but if like us you have a sweet tooth craving this has to get a mention!
These guys have taken the ice cream world by storm as well as the their neon lighting. A photo is a must and you’d be Mad not to visit. There’s also a relatively new Mad Pops open now in Canggu too!
