Gianyar is a remote, tranquil and naturally splendid area boasting beautiful deserted beaches which make for amazing sightseeing. Due to the fact that Gianyar is far less frequented by tourists than Bali’s south-western villages, there are only a few restaurants in the village, though each of them is equally appealing and worth a visit.
1. Warong Legong
Famous far beyond the Gianyar district, Warong Legong is a must-visit venue. Serving mouth-watering Balinese, Asian and Western cuisines, this tiny local restaurant stands out with its impeccable service, friendly staff and cordial owner – you can be sure they will do their best to appease all palates, and make your dining experience truly remarkable. And do not despair if you are staying far from the eatery, as the restaurant provides free pick-up and drop-off service on request.
2. Tsavo Lion Restaurant
Would you like to have an exquisite fine dining experience surrounded by graceful lions watching over you? No worries, though, as the seemingly thin glass windows are strong enough to protect you from becoming the supper of these mesmerising kings of the savannah. The Tsavo Lion Restaurant is located inside the Bali Safari and Marine Park. The restaurant is one-of-a-kind venue that offers amazing African-themed dining experience with delicious Western cuisine at the most thrilling setting one can imagine.
3. Barn N Bunk
Treat your taste buds to a delicious burger made of organic vegetables and the freshest meat that came directly from “farm to plate” in Barn N Bunk. Surrounded by splendid rice terraces and tucked amidst lush fruit gardens, this tiny oasis of peace, serenity and organic products is a real find. The restaurant also offers genuine local cuisine for those wishing to experience the real Bali through their taste buds.
4. Warung Uma Abian
Warung Uma Abian is a small restaurant nestled amidst verdant rice fields and luscious green gardens offering authentic Balinese cuisine and sumptuous seafood. Quiet and secluded, this local eatery maintains a rustic charm and provides bargain-priced food and friendly service in a beautiful setting. Visitors can opt to dine on one of the raised Balinese platforms, and relish the utterly romantic and serene setting, or grab a seat in the alfresco dining area.
