There’s nothing like a meal with a magnificent view.
In Bali, not only can you get to stay in amazing places with gorgeous views, but diners are also spoilt with a diverse array of delicious options to choose from – from spectacular sunsets by the cliff’s edge to watching the morning fog slowly giving way to the morning sun in lush valleys.
Sometimes, the views get so mesmerizing that tasting takes on elevated levels of pleasure.
Here, we’ve found you 27 restaurants with the most spectacular views in Bali.
What are you waiting for?
1. On top of the world with a view of Mount Batur – The Amora Bali Restaurant
A few hundred feet above, a magnificent view of Mount Batur later… Welcome to The Amora Bali.

While your date is caught up with the views of Mount Batur and its lake, it’s time to get on your knees… With a YES guaranteed, this can be the start of your new journey!2. Best sunset views up in the treetops – Dedari Theory
Why sit by the shore or at an over-crowded beach club when you can enjoy sunset time on the treetops?
This is yet another quirky find in Bali – adorned with bean bags, treetop platforms, suspension bridge, wagons and other whimsical sculptures.
You’ll be mesmerized by their eccentric bar – cocktails and other artistic drinks are served from a custom Kombi van! There are surely super creative minds behind such crazy ideas!
Dedari Theory is in an off-beat hang out spot located in an open-air setting and you can be sure to find plenty of seating options and space; but before you settle for an appetizing meal, remember to find a spot on the treetop platform for a couple of sunset drinks!
As the warm light of the setting sun finds its way through the branches, you will be able to catch one of the loveliest violet sky, before night falls!
The restaurant offers traditional Balinese specialties as well as Western meals, but their rice dishes and fries are the biggest hits.
With plenty of space to run wild and free, kids are very welcome at Dedari Theory. The grounds are often used for events such as baby showers, BBQ parties, as well as small-scale weddings.
After all who would say no to spectacular sunset views?
