Bali is by far the most vegan-friendly place I’ve visited so far, not to mention how healthy and extremely delicious everything was! Here’s a list of some of my favorite restaurants/meals during my stay!
La Pacha Mama | Bali’s first all-natural plant-based authentic Mexican restaurant.
(sorry for the poor photo quality)
This restaurant hit all my must haves; delicious food, perfect ambiance and incredible cocktails. We got tempeh tacos and a platter of the appetizer selections. This was our first night in Bali, and the restaurant was a quick walk from our hotel which was the perfect location for our first meal. I’m a big fan of friendly staff and Bali is definitely known for this. Our waiter for the evening did not stop smiling or singing the entire time, it was beyond adorable and entertaining.

This was such a special dining experience. We decided to do the seven-course vegan tasting menu, which felt more like 50 courses. (To see some of the many dishes check out my Bali vlog by clicking here!)
I had to share their environmental policy I just found on their website because I am so impressed!
“Ray and Eelke are committed to environmental sustainability, both in and out of the kitchen. The iconic sage green paint and recycled wood of all three outlets reflect that philosophy.
All edible kitchen waste is either fed to the pigs on their farm or composted for the vegetable garden. Other waste is collected by Eco Bali Recycling, which ensures its proper disposal.
The roof of Locavore to Go is covered in passive solar panels which reduce electricity consumption by at least 50%.”
Clear Cafe | So much more than just a restaurant
I was lucky enough to have a friend recommend a few places since she had just left Bali herself. Clear Cafe was on the top of her list. Bali is known for being extremely affordable so if you can get a good deal on a flight you won’t have to spend much more on anything else. Leave your shoes outside and step through the large circular door into this tranquil oasis. A full breakfast for two including beverages cost a whopping $12 which will leave you plenty of extra spending money to get an equally as affordable massage, pedicure, manicure and or facial! We spent nearly the entire day here taking in all this incredible cafe has to offer.
Sweet Orange Warung | Heaven in a rice field
If you’re looking for traditional Indonesian dishes, you found your spot! This small restaurant is off the main path in the middle of a rice field and somewhat of an odd walk, but well worth it. I wrote an entire blog post on the day we went here and ended up completely lost (You can check that out here!) This is pretty much a small little shack in the field and by far some of the best food we had during the trip.

I think I can say with confidence that this was my favorite restaurant during the trip. We ended up going twice we loved it so much. I also was able to work here because they had fantastic wifi. It’s in a great central location to everything and was directly on our way to the beach from our AirBnB!
There were SO many more amazing restaurants during our trip which makes it pretty much impossible to share them all! Please feel free to comment below any of your favorites or if you’ve visited any of these locations. Now get out there and explore!
