Uluwatu for Parents
Famed for its cliff-edge infinity pool , this Spanish-style restaurant or ‘cliff club’ brings an authentic taste of The Med to The Bukit. While the food is simply out-of-this-world, El Kabron’s biggest draw card is round about sundown, when a hip crowd descends to watch the show. Live music and authentic Catalonia-style tapas are the best things about this joint – tricky to find but even harder to leave.
Bringing a taste of the Mediterranean to Uluwatu, di Mare’s superb cliff top location offers stunning views to complement that glass of Sauv Blanc. The freshest seafood, pasta and spectatcular mains. Karma Kandaras signature restaurant has won a string of awards, and is regularly featured in all the best travel mags!

Woodfired-focused eatery Mason has long fallen into the category of must-visit for both Bali locals and visitors alike. Now the Canggu-based establishment has welcomed a sister venue with the opening of Mason Uluwatu. This space mingles it with a touch more modernity, with an exposed kitchen, to really enhance the Mediterranean feel of the restaurant.
TABU SUPPER CLUB
Mexico meets Japan at Tabu – one of Uluwatu’s hottest destinations centred by a long shared table and two floors for wining, dining and dancing ’til late. And it goes without saying, you’ll need to make a reservation here, as this place is booked out every weekend.
Ours is a rustic yet sophisticated space that pioneered a little gourmet on the Bukit Peninsula. A great place to enjoy with friends or to have a romantic dinner. The menu is inspired by Mediterranean flavours and a favourite for wine lovers, in particular their Red wine list. This popular all-day dining option is also great with the family in tow.
La Baracca Padang Padang
This delicious rustic island Italian has a home in Uluwatu, sitting on the main road above Thomas Beach along a happening little ‘eat street’. Seriously yummy wood-fired pizzas, house-made pastas and great vegan and veggie options too! This affordable little fave is a great place for a relaxed meal out. Also in Canggu and Seminyak for a visit or a go-jek delivery in your Villa.
This clifftop club has live events, DJs, sunset views and poolside bites. With share platters and tapas, perfect for a few drinks with friends. Check the website for what’s on and enjoy some adult time to relax and have fun! Open from 12 till late.
PALMILLA BEACH CLUB
A boho beach club on the white sands of Melasti Beach, here you’ll find bamboo cabanas, daybeds, hammocks and sun loungers to laze your sunny days away. The food here is designed to swap and share, as are the jugs of cocktails and buckets of cold beer. Hang beneath a palm, dip in the oceanfront pool and take in a sunset. Of course kids welcome too.
Set on the epic cliffs and overlooking the famous Uluwatu surf break, the beach bar is the go to for a jump- start breakfast with a perfect brewed coffee, enjoy an icy cold Bintang after an afternoon of long lefts or sip on a cocktail while the sun sinks in the Indian Ocean.
The terrace has unparalleled views of the surf, sunsets and comes alive with music programming on Wednesdays and the infamous Sunday Sessions with regular international DJ’s and live acts.
