In Indonesia, vegan sustenance is not a common thing to find. Hence being a vegan can be quite challenging for a local, let alone for a traveling tourist. It’s not unusual that some local diners put “vegan friendly” on their promotion banner but they turned out just omitting meat products from the dishes to make them so. I have visited these five restaurants myself and I can assure you that these are legit vegan restaurants!

Each of these five vegan restaurants is located in different popular tourist areas of Bali. So, wherever you go when you visit this island, you don’t have to worry about finding a good place to enjoy your meal without having to ask yourself, “Is this vegan?”

1. Earth Cafe in Seminyak and Ubud

Being the first in Indonesia, it should come as no surprise that Down to Earth (DTE) Bali is the leading vegan restaurant in Bali. Every year DTE holds the biggest vegan event in Bali, Bali Vegan Festival. They have three main restaurant chains (Zula, Divine Earth, and Earth Cafe) and each of them has a unique concept. Owned by Liat Solomon, a renowned nutritionist who cooked for Al Pacino and Dalai Lama in early 90’s, all of DTE’s restaurants serve food and beverages made from organic ingredients.

Zula offers you simple, cozy atmosphere and quick delivery service. Divine Earth is the one to go to if you’re looking for a fine dining experience or a luxury cinema night. Earth Cafe is somewhere in the middle. It’s a good place to hang out with your friends or a quick sustenance pit stop while you’re traveling around. Hence, this is the one I recommend you to visit. Plus, it serves a wide variety of cuisine with affordable prices and provide a selection of vegan products you can buy.

Earth Cafe has two restaurants: one is on Jalan Kayu Aya (Oberoi) 99, Seminyak and the other one is on Jalan Goutama Selatan, Ubud. Both are open every day from 7:00 am. The one in Seminyak closes at 11:00 pm, while the one in Ubud closes one hour earlier. They serve organic foods from raw dishes to deep fried. The price ranges from around 35,000 IDR (approximately 3 USD) to 100,000 IDR (approximately 7.5 USD).

Earth Cafe Seminyak is located within the heart of the Kuta area. Oberoi Street is filled with shopping centers and only 15 minutes away on foot from the beach.

2. Alchemy in Ubud

Ubud has been known as a health and wellbeing haven in Bali. Finding vegan restaurants in this area is not a tall order. But finding the best one can be tricky. Being a vegan means you care about eating healthy. The best way to embody that is by going fully raw. And Alchemy in Ubud is a highly recommended place for all kinds of raw food.

Alchemy is not just a vegan restaurant. It is the first 100% raw vegan restaurant in Bali and it has its own culinary education center, Alchemy Academy. It is located at Jalan Penestanan Kelod, Ubud, just a few minutes away from Antonio Blanco Museum at Jalan Raya Ubud. The restaurant opens every day from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm. It serves all raw food and beverages and prices range from around 30,000 IDR (approximately 2.5 USD) to 100,000 IDR (approximately 7.5 USD).

3. Living Kitchen in Canggu

Has Canggu become too crowded these days? Some parts of it are indeed busier than the rest of Bali, but some other parts still worth a visit for quiet and peaceful time. Jalan Pantai Nelayan, for instance. It is only a few hundred meters away from Canggu’s main road, but it offers you quieter ambiance.

Located on this street is a newly opened vegan restaurant, Living Kitchen. Started out by culinary experts from Bandung, which is well-known as the best culinary city in Indonesia, this restaurant offers yummy, healthy, guilt-free food. Plus, the menu also offers non-vegan options prepared with separate utensils. Both are powered by Saladmaster, one of the world’s best titanium cookwares.

Living Kitchen is open every day from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. The price ranges from around 35,000 IDR (approximately 3 USD) to 75,000 IDR (approximately 5.5 USD). Come here after 4:00 pm for the best ambiance to enjoy some healthy dessert and coffee. Then, you can walk to the beach right down the road, which is less than one kilometer (less than 0.6 mi) away from the restaurant to enjoy the sunset.

4. The Spicy Coconut in Batubelig

In case you go further south from Canggu, you don’t have to go back up just to get a piece of plant-based goodness on a plate. Only five minutes away on foot from Batubelig Beach, there is a traditional vegan restaurant or as locals call it warung, The Spicy Coconut. The menu offers you quick and simple plant-based food and beverages, like salad and smoothie bowls. A breakfast menu is also available but only until 12:00 pm.

This vegan restaurant opens from Monday to Saturday (closed on Sundays) from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm. It is located right on the main street of Batubelig. The menu price ranges from around 30,000 IDR (approximately 2.5 USD) to 65,000 IDR (approximately 4.5 USD). They also have special menu for kids with half priced dishes. The restaurant only receives cash payment, so make sure you bring enough rupiah before you come here. Or you can go to the ATM available at Circle K a few meters away.

5. Loving Hut in Denpasar

Google vegan restaurant in Bali and you will find all sorts of places to visit around Ubud and Kuta. Whereas for the Denpasar area, it is highly unlikely. Hidden inside of an office complex in the middle of southern Denpasar, there is actually a good local vegan restaurant you can visit for plant-based Indonesian dishes. The place is called Loving Hut. It is a part of international vegan restaurant chain in 23 countries all over the world, including UK, USA, Australia, and Germany.

This vegan restaurant is located at Pertokoan Sudirman Agung Block B Number 12A of Jalan P.B. Sudirman, Denpasar. It’s on the same complex as Wearnes Campus. It is open every day from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm. And it serves a wide variety of cheap Indonesian food with additional Asian and Western food starting from around 17,000 IDR (approximately 1.25 USD) to 40,000 IDR (approximately 4.5 USD).

Wherever you go, there's a great vegan restaurant right around the corner!

From all the cities I’ve been to in Indonesia, Bali has been the best place to be a vegan. These five restaurants are some of the reasons why. From up north in Ubud to down south in Canggu, you can find great vegan restaurants all around this island with affordable prices. And their menus offer a wide variety of food and beverage that I will never get bored of trying. So, next time you visit one of these places, you will probably see me with half empty plates whilst working on my laptop in the restaurant’s comfy corner!
