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.

18 extraordinary cafes in Bali you can’t help but Instagram

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. Dine to the calming sounds of rushing water – Waterfall Breeze Eco Cafe

Bali is full of surprises, just when you think you’ve heard of every waterfall there, another one pops up on the list. As was the case for this one; the only difference? An eco friendly cafe located a shocking 25m away from the gushing beauty!

Feel the cooling mist lightly spray your face while you munch on delicious indonesian food, thanks to the surrounding lush jungle, the roaring of the water isn’t the only sounds you’ll be hearing. You’ll also be blessed with the sounds of the forest! Birds chirping, leaves rustling, all complemented by the soothing noise of flowing water. There isn’t a better place to unwind!

Did we mention that you can also learn how to cook their delicious food? Directly in front of the waterfall too! The cafe is run by the Bali Mountain Women Cooperative, which is part of an incredible program where the local women are empowered to establish careers, earn a living, and teach their skills.

Not only that, the most famous coffee in Bali (Kopi Luwak) is produced here, and ethically we might add! So if you’re looking to sample some of the delicious drink, we highly recommend this place over others where the poor civet cats are caged.

To get to this place, you need to walk along the path and down the valley. Then, follow the mysterious small bridge. Before leaving, make a stop by the Bali Mountain Women Coffee Cooperative office, to find out more about their initiative and what you can do to support!

2. Dance away the night alongside the colours of the sky – Rock Bar at AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI

In what I would consider the most unique bar in Bali, you can experience luxury, style, and romance. Rock Bar hangs over a cliff, allowing you to get as close to the horizon as you can, giving you unrivalled views of the sun dipping under the waves as day turns to night.

Photo Via Gotravel_guide

It’s perfect for experiencing one of Bali’s magnificent sunsets, a place where you can watch the colours of the sky dance and change, from clear blue to the most dazzling hues of pink, purple, and orange. You may even be so mesmerised that you almost forget to take photos! Make sure you capture this once in a lifetime moment, and share it with all your friends.

Photo Via Devenir_rentier_immobilier, TripCanvas, Doris_travel

A soft sea spray against the rocks, coupled with music from an array of different international DJs means you’ll be able to dance with the world whilst your skin is soothed from the cool salty air.

And since you’ve successfully paired the views with cocktails and snacks, you might want to stay longer and indulge in their exclusive Mediterranean menu with a selection of mouth-watering seafood dishes. Regulars favour their Grilled Octopus and their King Prawns but the Lamb Loin does not go unnoticed either.

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.

When it comes to living the high life, seafood reigns supreme at this vibrant open-kitchen restaurant that serves Japanese-inspired meals  with a whole new definition!

Located on the seaside of Bali, Seasalt Seminyak – a decoratively decadent eatery (famed for its coastal dining concept) gives seafood the gratuitously luxurious twist it needs. Who wants a boring seafood platter when you can have a jumbo fish baked and served in sea salt, as though it was hidden under the sand… while a few seashells adorn your delectable meal and give it photo-worthy opportunities (order their White Snapper!).

Photo Via Agusmahatma, Nishaary_

If you are a fan of treats from the ocean prepared in creative, unique and mouth-watering ways, dining at Seasalt Seminyak will be a pleasure, especially because your meal gets naturally salted while you sit by the ocean.

The fine dining restaurant sources its seafood from the surrounding ocean so you can always expect the freshest selections used for their superb quality oceanic dishes. The chefs master the art of magnifying the flavours of high quality and fresh ingredients – such as the Miso-honey roasted butterfish with carrot puree and pickled carrot.

While you savour fantastic seafood, relish in the magnificent ocean views; there’s something wonderfully tactile about eating food from the sea by the sea — cracking through claw, slurping shell and dipping fingers into lemon-scented bowls while ocean breeze runs through your hair…

madu sari sunrise over lake batur cr flickr dennis stauffer

To be precise, Madu Sari is on the very edge of the crater of Mount Batur, a still-active volcano, that thankfully spends most of its time asleep.

If you dine here, you’ll sit surrounded by streaks of molten lava from previous eruptions, green pine shoots, and Lake Batur, a crater lake.

madu sari cr balimadusari.com 1

A variety of local and European food will be served buffet-style, and you can go to the nearby Volcanology Museum afterwards for a very nerdy V-Day celebration.

Breakfast options are: fruit, pancakes and toast with a variety of jam.

The lunch spread includes three choices of soup, rice fried and plain, cap cay, fried chicken, fried tuna, beef stroganoff and others.
