The 9 Best Sanur Restaurants

Dusk Blue-

Jl. Duyung No.3 // +62 811-398-5611

Dusk Blue is one of the most popular restaurants in Sanur, and for good reason. Featuring a small but interesting menu, this place is often crowded. I went for brunch–make sure to try one of their fresh-pressed juice combinations.

Cafe Smorgas-

Jl. Pantai Karang No.2 // +62 361-28-9361

As a family run Swedish restaurant, Cafe Smorgas has an entire menu of local and Swedish dishes to choose from. My favorites were the open-faced sandwiches–which makes sense, because “smorgas” is Swedish for sandwich!

Jalapeño-

Jl. Danau Tamblingan No.102 // +62 361-449-0325

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m constantly searching Asia for good Mexican food. Jalapeño definitely satisfied this craving. My favorite dishes were the rice bowls and their fresh guacamole.

Spice by Chris Salans-

Jl. Danau Tamblingan No.140 // +62 361-449-0411

Spice applies French cooking techniques to local Indonesian flavors. With multiple locations across Bali (and more coming soon), it’s obvious the concept has been well received.

All of the ingredients are locally sourced, and the chef has received multiple awards for his work.

Make sure to check out the cocktail menu. Their creative offerings are designed around the freshest local ingredients and whole spices blended with imported spirits from around the world. The mixologist is happy to suggest the perfect cocktail pairing for your meal.

White House-

Jalan Danau Tamblingan No.89 // +62 819-9945-6706

White House was an unexpected find, and I expect to find them on many future “where to eat in Sanur” lists. The menu was interesting, the presentation was gorgeous, and most importantly, the food was delicious. I had an opportunity to visit with the chef during my stay, and he seemed both passionate and excited. I left wanting to try every dish on his menu.

Grocer & Grind-

Jalan Danau Tamblingan No.152 // +62 361-270-635

While I typically try to avoid chains, I was happy to discover this Grocer & Grind. A large menu featuring many local and Western dishes, this spot also had some of the best wifi I found in Sanur–perfect if you need to get caught up on some work!

Massimo’s-

Jl. Danau Tamblingan No. 228 // +62 361-288-942

Massimo’s menu is so large it’s almost intimidating. The chef is actually from Italy, and it shows in his cooking–this place is well known and a favorite to many. The octopus carpaccio was sliced near paper thin before being drizzled with olive oil, a squeeze of lemon, and finally freshly cracked black pepper. I’m still craving this dish!

Soul in a Bowl-

Jalan Danau Tamblingan No.180 // +62 361-472-0063

Saving the best for last–you can likely tell by the number of photos I have from this place how many times I have visited. This was easily my favorite place to eat in Sanur.

More than once I went for breakfast and spent the day working there, staying long enough to end up hungry for lunch.

Another night we met friends here for dinner and all raved about the menu. Everything we tried we loved. It was as though the presentation was created for Instagram, and the service was some of the best in town.

Soul in a Bowl! Did you mention that the back of the restaurant opens to the ocean? Can’t wait to go back. Dinner, and a cold Bintang on the beach, nothing better
