Relatively baby friendly restaurants in Bali

Note: RELATIVELY

In my last post, I shared that most restaurants in Bali don’t usually provide baby chairs or their baby chairs are just not  as safe as the IKEA ones. But nonetheless, the restaurants here are pretty clean and still conducive for babies. 

Also another point to note, tax is about 20% for these restaurants. So you might want to factor that in your budget. 

  • Warung “Dewa Malen”

Address: Br.tengkulak Tengah, Kemenuh, Sukawati, Gianyar- Bali

  
This is a popular place with tourists especially during lunch time. The restaurant overlooks a rice padi and it gives a very tranquil peaceful surrounding. Recommended by our driver, we went over during dinner. 

The restaurant serves a mixture of international cusine and local Balinese food.

KM ordered a Nasi Campur and a Pepes Ikan.

  

  
We shared a huge coconut among us. I personally love the Nasi Campur. It’s basically a combination of ‘whatever dishes’ the kitchen came up with. 

The total bill came up to approximately SGD$24 for 2.

  • Melasti Kedonganan Bali, Jimbaran 

Address: Jalan Pantai Kedonganan, Jimbaran Kuta Selatan, Kabupaten, Bandung Bali

  
Okay. As you can guess by now, I didn’t take any photos. This is one of the few restaurants with decent baby chairs. It’s really popular with the tourists so don’t expect it to be cheap.

The pros about this restaurant, you’re having dinner on the beach, with the sound of the waves, smell of fresh air and sand beneath your feet. Plus entertainment from a local band. 

We ordered their grilled snapper, grilled squid and grilled mussels. As part of their set meals, it comes with their soup (sweet corn), a plate of stir fried vegetables (lang kong) and a small plate of fruits (watermelon slices). On top of that, we ordered 2 coconuts.

I personally love the grilled mussels. It’s cooked in a peanut sauce similar to our satay dipping sauce. 

Suffice to say, KM and I were stuffed after this meal and Z had his first encounter with sand. 

Total bill came up to approximately SGD$75 for 2.

  • Kintamani Restaurant 

Address: Penelokan Grand Puncak Sari 2, Kintamani Bali

  

Come here for the view! Our driver recommended this place only because the food is fresher. He shared that the food is refilled regularly and not as stale as the others on this street.

This restaurant works on a buffet basis. Buffet comes with average food, minimal variety with coffee and tea. Additional beverages are calculated separately. 

Don’t expect excellent service because they can get pretty busy. No changing areas for babies and no high chairs (we tried asking for one and they ignored us, so I assume that they can’t find one). Can’t blame them too especially when there are hardly any babies around. Washrooms are fairly clean which is always a good plus point. 

The only food that’s worth mentioning is their satay. 

 
I had so much satay, I decided not to eat anymore for the rest of the trip. Good thing about buffets, you can sit there for hours and stare at the gorgeous view and fresh air.

Total bill came up to about SGD$13 per person. 

  • Malioboro, Bali

Address: Jalan Kediri No. 50 I- J

Really regretted not taking photos for this one! This was the first place that we went to for lunch. Another family restaurant. I think they do provide baby chairs for kids.

Introduced by another driver, we opted for some local Balinese food. This place looks like a local fast food restaurant. But it’s relatively clean. Its air-conditioned making it perfect for a hot day. 

Ordered their Ayam Pesto Telur Asin, which is their salted egg fried chicken and it was really good. Another chicken dish is their Ayam Pesto Goreng Crispy and it’s not bad. Their Tahu Telor wasn’t very fantastic and a little bit too spicy. 

Total bill came up to about SGD$24 for 2. 

  • Dewi Sri Restaurant

Address: Jl. Kartika Plaza Kuta, Bali

Wanted a quick bite before we head back to the villa so the driver recommend us here. This place specializes in Chinese food with some local satay. Food quality is not bad but it’s nothing too exciting. The food is quite fresh I must add.The plus point would have to be their prices. We ordered a fried fish, fried squid/ calamari and stir fried vegetables.

This restaurant also provides free wifi for their customers. 

There were no baby chairs for this one but we loved the booth seats. Z could crawl and  stand up with support.

The total bill came up to SGD$25. 


Address: Jalan Hanoman, Padangtegal, Ubud Kec. Gainyar Bali 80571 

 
I’m quite sure every driver knows this place. Famous for its fried duck and rice padi fields, this place is really popular with the tourists and it’s hard not to.

  
You can choose to sit Indonesian style on their platform areas or private villas. We chose that so Z could crawl after a long day in the car. Alternatively, this restaurant also provides baby chairs if you need one. 

Z loved the space while we’re there and it helped that we had an early dinner so there were only a couple of customers around us. 

We ordered their dirty duck and pork ribs. Both came out really nice and flavorful. We also ordered their special combination juice and avocado juice. It turned out pretty yummy. 

Total bill came up to about $35 for 2.

  • La Lucciola

Address: Jl. Kayu Aya. Petitenget beach, Seminyak Bali 803691

This is our favourite restaurant hands down. We decided to head to a nice restaurant by the beach so we can let Z get his hands dirty. But our plans changed. Nonetheless, we love this gem.

  
It was super hot, so we ordered their sorbet and chocolate lava cake. It was super yummy! 

   
  
They do provide pretty decent size meals but KM and I already had our lunch earlier. What is really nice about this place is, the ambience and it just gives you that overall ‘chill out’ kind of place with excellent toilets. (No changing area for kids and no baby chair though) 

We spent about SGD $40 for 2 after we ordered a glass of wine and a mojito.

  • Pak Malen Babi Guling 

Address: Jl. Sunset Road No. 5 Seminyak, Kuta, Bandung Bali 80361

  
KM really wanted to try their Babi Guling since it’s a famous dish in Bali so our driver drove us to this local shop. This isn’t exactly a restaurant since they don’t have any facilities so be prepared. I baby wear Z the entire time we were there and entertained him with snacks after snacks after snacks. 

Any regrets if you ask me? No. These people really know how to cook their pig. 

We spent about $15 for 2 pax. It includes their standard set meal and a drink. 

  • Livingstone Cafe & Bakery

Address: Jl. Petitenget no. 88 Kerobokon Bali

KM was drawn to this cafe by its exterior and design. The tall Windows, black frames and gorgeous look makes this a pretty interesting cafe. 

We didn’t have time to dine in but we managed to pack some cakes. IT WAS SO YUMMY! 

On the first level, it’s a cafe/ bakery. You’re spoilt for choice! On the second level, BURO a concept store is a great hangout place. This second level is a curation of local artists, similar to our Naiise. It also holds coffee making sessions and teaches participants how to appreciate coffee.

So for the hippie wannabes, you have to check this place out!

We ordered about 4 desserts and it came up to about SGD$20.
