Let’s just go ahead and admit it: half the fun of dining out is taking photos of the food and location. When it comes to Instagram chic dining, Bali has it going on, big time. From jaw-dropping décor to almost-too-cute-to-eat dishes, here are the 10 most Instagrammable restaurants in Bali.
1. Kynd Community
No two ways about it: Kynd Community is the place for trendy food photography in Bali right now. This brand-new café and smoothie bar has struck Instagram gold with their customised smoothie bowls spelling out beautiful Bali vibes. Oh – and they also taste amazing.
Location: Jalan Raya Petitenget No. 12x, Seminyak, Bali
2. Bikini Restaurant
Bikini restaurant is known for its innovative cuisine… and its very Instagrammable bathroom mirrors! The mirrors spell out tongue-in-cheek lines from your favourite movies and TV shows, taking basic bathroom selfies to a whole other level. The venue’s entrance is also just begging to be photographed, with a neon sign proclaiming U LOOK HOT IN A BIKINI.
Location: JL. Kayu Cendana No. 6, Seminyak, Bali
3. Mad Pops Bali
Located Seminyak’s busy Eat Street, Mad Pops draws in visitors with artisanal popsicles and ice cream – and extremely photogenic wall art. We dare you not to prop your cone in front of their “Ice Ice Baby” neon sign or to strike a pose next to the “Ice cream is my religion” window display. We also love the “Treat yo self” cups!
Location: Jl. Kayu Aya No. 48, Seminyak, Bali
4. Sea Circus
Oldie but a goodie, Sea Circus has been attracting social media savvy caffeine fiends to strike a pose in front of the restaurant’s colourful façade for years. Besides the cool murals, Sea Circus is known for offering great breakfasts, terrific coffee and chilled cocktails once the sun goes down. Year after year, Sea Circus remains one of the most Instagrammable restaurants in Bali.
Location: Jalan Kayu Aya No. 22, Seminyak, Bali
5. Mrs Sippy
Mrs Sippy is the hottest new pool bar in Bali. Located in the heart of Seminyak, Mrs Sippy serves up great cocktails and gourmet pool grub overlooking a massive lagoon pool. What really gives Mrs Sippy an Instgram edge over the other pool clubs in Bali is the five-metre jump tower which allows you to get a bird’s eye view to this trendy watering hole – no drone necessary.
Location: Jalan Taman Ganesha, Gang Gagak 8, Seminyak, Bali
6. Motel Mexicola
Similar to Sea Circus, Motel Mexicola has long been heralded as one of the most Instagrammable restaurants in Bali and there’s no sign of the trend dying down anytime soon. The restaurant boasts colourful wall art and hosts lively parties, all tying in with the fiery Latin theme.
Location: Jalan Kayu Jati No. 9X, Seminyak, Bali
7. Nalu Bowls
Bali is known as smoothie bowl heaven and Nalu Bowls was one of the first vendors to really kick off the trend. It’s hard to know which is more Instagrammable – the yummy bowls or the beach boho styled venues. Nalu Bowls currently has four locations in Bali (there are even two in Jakarta!) – the outlets in Seminyak and Bukit are definitely among the most Instagrammable restaurants in Bali.
Locations: Jalan Drupadi 1 No. 2A, Seminyak, Bali
Jalan Labuansait No. 63, Pecatu, Bali
8. Cafe Organic
The self-proclaimed Garden Ganstas of Café Organic certainly know a thing or two about attracting the Instagram crowd. The brands two venues in Seminyak and Canggu combine dreamy white décor with catchy one liners – “No bad days” says one window, “But first, coffee” states another – and colourful organic fair. Hipster heaven, found.
Locations: Jalan Petitenget No. 99x, Seminyak, Bali
Jalan Batu Bolong No. 58x, Canggu, Bali

Who doesn’t love a good affirmation while dining? Well, Clear Café puts a real Bali spin on your basic platitudes by spelling out the affirmation of the day in flaming orange marigold flowers. Trust us – they will totally make your Instagram feed pop. The restaurant’s garden setting and rainbow hued veggie food are also very much on fleek.

10. Coffee Cartel
Move over macha – pink is most definitely the new green! The newly opened Coffee Cartel café serves super cute beetroot lattes that make any and every meal Instagram ready. And if beetroot sounds like an odd addition to your morning brew, don’t worry – the taste is very mild and surprisingly delicious… and “normal” lattes are also available for the faint of heart!
Location: Jalan Lebak Sari No. 08, Seminyak, Bali
11. La Laguna
Release your inner bohemian at La Laguna! This beachfront venue has it all: ocean views, live music, colourful cushions scattered on the lawns, refurbished gypsy wagons… Oh, and magical sunset views to boot!

12. Old Man’s
Old Man’s is a Canggu institution, located right by the popular Batu Bolong Beach. The laid-back restaurant boasts several full-wall murals that make for the perfect backdrop for envy-inducing holiday snaps.
