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. And you can find these amazing restaurants in Seminyak, Canggu, Ubud, Jimbaran, Uluwatu, and even further up north in Kintamani (think chilly cafes with gorgeous backdrop of Mount Agung)!
