Bali Eco Deli
Located in the heart of Nusa Lembongan, a step away from Jungut Batu beach, Bali Eco Deli is a classic small and cosy Bali cafe. Open every day from 7 am to 9 pm, it is the perfect place to enjoy a freshly prepared smoothie, healthy salad or daily baked treat. Everything is made to order and baked in-house using organic and local ingredients. Bali Eco Deli is dedicated to protecting the environment with its remarkable eco-responsible initiative and is the only cafe in Nusa Lembongan offering free mineral water refills when you bring your non-disposable or reusable container. If you bring plastic rubbish with you, they will take 10% off your whole order. A must-try if you are out and about exploring the island on a day adventure!
Inspired by one of the most essential spices used in cooking, Kayu Manis or Cinnamon, offers a variety of seasonal recipes featuring this aromatic ingredient.
Open from 7am until 10.30pm, the restaurant caters for breakfast all the way through to late dinner.
The menu includes Western and Asian dishes with a selection of unique Indonesian specialities.
All produce is sourced locally when possible.
Not only does Kayu Manis offer an extensive menu of fine dishes but it also offers a magnificent decor on the beachfront.
The restaurant offers a complimentary pick-up and drop-off service to 353°N so use the Villa mobile to call them up.
Perfect for a romantic fine dinner by the ocean.
Lemongrass Bar and Restaurant
Always advisable to book here. Why? The Delicious Food, The Owners (Pak Wayan and Ibu Wayan), The Staff, The Service, The Live Music……and The Drinks. In other words, everything is usually better than great at Lemongrass. If you spur of the moment decide to eat at Lemongrass then no problem because you can put your name down for a table and grab a seat at the bar and try some of their fantastic cocktails. The owners or the staff will come grab you when a table is ready. They also do a home delivery service so you can place an order using the villa phone after looking at their menu which is in the Restaurant Menu Folder.
Located in the main area of Nusa Lembongan, Indiana Kenanga is a 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 on the southern side of the island, Mama Mia Bar & Grill has truly fantastic food with sweeping views over the seaweed farms to Nusa Ceningan.
I like to stop here on the way back from cruising around Ceningan Island or after visiting our good friend and inspiring local artist Rai whose works are found all around 353 Degrees North.
What to choose? Chilli Crab (pictured) is magnifico as are the melt in your mouth ribs. Actually, go twice. Much better idea!!
The service at Mama Mia’s is also quick and friendly.
It’s located a couple of hundred metres west of the Yellow Bridge on the ocean side of the road and is well worth the visit.
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 island meal you can get! Hire a motorbike and scoot along the island’s 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.
Deliciously authentic Thai food and amazing cocktails set on a deck up the Playgrounds end of Jungut Batu bay with iconic views across to Mount Agung on Bali.
There’s even Singha beer to be had to wash down that scrumptious Pad Thai!!
Yep, you’re right…probably doesn’t get much better than this!!
The Palms Ceningan Hotel and Restaurant
Set on the western tip of neighbouring Nusa Ceningan, this relaxed clifftop bar is the perfect place to drink by the pool while the sun dips into the ocean.
The deck faces directly west to take full advantage of the gorgeous sunset and goes as far as the cliff face and offers uninterrupted views of the stunning surf break ( Secret Point) below.
The Palms is about a 5-minute walk to the amazing Blue Lagoon.
We recommend stopping and eating here as the food is first class and we are particularly fond of the Ginger Coolers and Thai Beef Salad.
