Bumbu Bali: Balinese $$$1/2 Comment: There are surprisingly few restaurants on Bali specialising in Balinese cuisine, Bumbu Bali is one of them and one of the best. Also offers cooking classes. Location: Jl. Pratama Tanjung Benoa, Telp. 774 502
Faces at The Bale: International $$$$ Comments: New and cool. Exciting menu prepared in a show kitchen that opens onto and is part of the dining room. Faces is the only restaurant we know in Bali serving souffles - and we like souffles! Location: The Bale Bali, Nusa Dua Telp. 775 111
Nusa Dua Grill: Seafood $1/2 Comments: Serving up hearty portions of the freshest seafood in Nusa Dua, the Nusa Dua Grill is a where all the surfers come to fuel up before or after a long day on the water. Nothing fancy, just good value for money. Location: Geger Beach (South Nusa Dua) Telp. 743 4779
Nyoman's Bali: Indonesian $ Comments: If you staying in Tanjung Benoa area try Nyoman's. Nothing fancy but the food is tasty and the portions are ample. Stick with the Indonesian dishes. Location: On the left hand side of the road just before the Club Mirage Resort.
PJ's at the Four Seasons: International $$$$ Comments: It's not that hard to pick Bali's most romantic restaurant on the beach. The food is delicious and creatively presented - but make sure to leave room for the macadamia nut ice cream. Location: Four Seasons Resort, Jimbaran Telp. 701 010
Sriwanda: Indonesian (Javanese) $ Comments: Authentic and delicious Javanese home cooking by a mother and two daughters. Small, friendly and cosy spot with a limited menu that offers excellent value for money. Location: By Pass Ngurah Rai 302 (across from the post office, Nusa Dua Telp. 772 2935
Umi Yamamoto: Japanese $$$ Comments: A small, clean 'warung' with full Japanese menu (except Tepayaki) owned and operated by a Japanese expat. Excellent value for money on its own and even better when compared to the Japanese restaurants in the Nusa Dua hotels. Location: Jl. Siligita No 10, Nusa Dua Telp. 9225093
