Located in the main area of Nusa Lembongan, Indiana Kenanga is must. Think what we, in Australia, call the mix of Aussie & Asian flavours as “Fusion”, except now you ramp it up a notch and get the finesse of French cooking, supplied with the freshest and best produce from all the Australasian region. Originally from central France, Clement Fouqueré (the owner and chef) grew up on the Polynesian atolls around Tahiti. At 16, after inheriting his passion for cooking from his grandmother he went home to France to apprentice as a chef before starting his career in some of the most renowned restaurants in the country. It’s probably the only place on Lembongan that gets Michael (the Reservations Manager) to leave 355 Degrees North…and don’t be thinking you have to bring your tuxedo as Michael will wear his latest “special going out” Bintang singlet and board shorts to eat here.

Located away from the main road and amongst the Mangroves in the north of Nusa Lembongan, Warung Bamboo is a family-run restaurant specialising in seafood. The menu changes according to the daily catch. Perched right on the beach, a few tables are spread under a covered terrace where you can enjoy your meal, feet in the sand. The menu is simple and includes drinks, grilled fish, fish soup, fried rice or fried noodles. Simple but delectable, Warung Bambu serves the most traditional Balinese meal you can get! Hire a motorbike and scoot along the island’s dirt roads to find this local gem. And if it isn’t for the fun motorbike ride, you will be rewarded with stunning views of Mt. Agung.
