The food scene in Uluwatu has immensely benefited from Bali’s continuing luxurious metamorphoses, which has lured a host of world-renowned international chefs to the region.
Now, from the best in local cuisine to fantastical fusions, Uluwatu claims some of Bali’s most delectable restaurants, and they’re all at your fingertips.
The Pool Lounge at The Ungasan Clifftop Resort
Perched atop the clifftops, this luxurious restaurant within the lavish Ungasan Clifftop Resort has food to match its opulent surrounds.
The culinary enjoyment you’ll experience at Selatan Restaurant is the culmination of years of dedication and passion. This starts from the moment you are served the bread — so often overlooked in so many establishments, Executive Chef Josh Tyler has managed to overcome Bali’s humid weather and produce the perfectly baked loaf.
Chef Josh began his culinary career in 1998, as his passion for cooking grew, so did his milestones. Now, he is recognisable from his TV appearance on River Cottage Australia and his very own restaurants, Tyler’s Kitchen and Tyler’s Pantry, for which he earned a Chef’s Hat from the highly-regarded Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide.
Whether you’re after perfectly cooked fish, meat, or locally sourced vegetables, you’ll find cuisine that has been individually treated and cooked to the finest detail with a unique Balinese twist.
With this incredible team, compounded by six-star quality service, your experience at The Pool Lounge is a rare one — and one not to be missed.
Featuring some of the best views in Uluwatu, Mana is elegantly tucked away in the verdant jungle and set high atop the jagged cliffs. Towering above the waves, this subtle restaurant not only offers sweeping vistas of the tranquil Indian Ocean, but marvellous food to match.
The menu is simple, yet effortlessly effective. In true surfer style, the food is all about wholesome, nourishing bites from both land and sea. The tacos are the stand-out dishes here and typify this restaurant’s philosophy — where the finer details make all the difference to your culinary experience.
The Warung at Alila Villas
Set within the luxurious Alila Villas resort, The Warung’s food is exquisitely crafted for even the most overfastidious of palettes and offers a journey into Uluwatu’s rich variety of exotic flavours.
Serving the most decadent Indonesian and Balinese cuisine in the region, four distinct set menus aid your culinary journey through perfectly light and flavoursome dishes. By the end of your meal, you certainly won’t be clamouring for dessert. Instead, sip some of the finest international wines as the sun sets over the violet Indonesian sky.
