Uluwatu Family Eats
THE CASHEW THREE
Just a stone’s throw from the cliff top of Bingin, The Cashew Tree has a great kids play area and pavilion! Here the little ones can run amok and explore the gated kids playground! This cute café also covers everything from yoga sessions in the garden and live acoustic gigs, to after-dark DJ nights and, of course, a fully stacked café style menu. Fresh, healthy and organic, there’s something for all the family at this little bohemian gem.
Tucked right into the bottom of the cliffs at Bingin, Kelly’s is something of an institution around these parts. Overlooking the famous waves out front and with steps that go down right onto the sand (perfect for the kids), there’s few better places to while away a lazy day. The food is simple, healthy and hearty, with a refreshing drinks list and some of the coldest beers around. Try the colourful Pitaya Bowl for brekkie, and the generous wraps for a post-surf lunch.
A shrine to all things old school surf, Drifter wears its vintage vibes proudly, stocking a range of unique labels and some great art pieces. They also have sweet kids clothing. Browse the shop and when you’re done, head out the back to the peaceful garden café where you’ll find excellent coffee and a range of yummy food all throughout the day, into dinner. Drop by on a Friday night and you might catch a live band or a surf movie viewing beneath the stars.
For great coffee, pastries, sandwiches and freshly cooked meals, this sweet little bakery will hit the spot! Open bright and early through to 8pm with friendly staff to help with dining in or take-away options. A little slice of Paris in Bingin!
D’VINO BY CASA ASIA
Little sister to Casa Asia in Ungasan (also great), this Bingin gem serves up authentic Italian pizza, pasta, salads and more! Open for lunch and dinner with a menu to please all members of the tribe. It’s the casual atmosphere and delicious food that make this restaurant super welcoming for kids and adults alike.
LUCKY FISH LOUNGE BINGIN BEACH
Who doesn’t love a meal on the beach! This popular Bingin café / resto is worth the walk up the stairs! Open all day and into the eve, enjoy their traditional barbeque. The concept is simple, choose your seafood, weight it, they tell you the price and cook it the way you like it. While you relax with a Bintang with your feet in the sand! They also have plenty of healthy organic options and yummies for the kids.
Banana Lounge Bali is Bingin’s newest pool lounge and restaurant where you can graze all day on the menu, sip on a cocktail list and let the kids cool off in the pool. Open for brunch, lunch and dinner it’s a great place to visit. Banana Lounge Bali is located just footsteps from the main entrance to Impossibles Beach. A trip down to the sand is highly recommended here. Also check out the rooftop area for a fabulous sunset.
Ulu Garden – a ‘multidisciplinary hospitality space’ where you can stroll in for brunch, catch a live acoustic band over cocktails, or work away on your laptop overlooking the breezy tropical garden. There’s even a kid’s playground full of toys and games, which will keep little ones occupied while grown-ups graze on delicious food. Keep your eyes on Ulu Garden’s weekly Instagram schedule, because you can join Bahasa classes, workshops, specials dinners and even watch live music. Don’t miss the Sunday market either – it takes place on the first Sunday of every month and features art, homewares, kid’s clothing and all round good times!
NALU BOWLS ULUWATU
Nalu Bowls is Bali’s original smoothie bowl, that kids and parents all love! With their daily-fresh ingredients made from exotic tropical fruits topped with homemade crunchy granola – the smoothie bowls here don’t disappoint. Keeping it local, their best seller is of course the Uluwatu Bowl, with dragon fruit, raspberries, banana and a hint of apple juice.
