Amed, situated on the north east coast of Bali is a quiet little fishing village three hours of Denpasar. In my month here I found some treasures, and must eats here for your next trip (for half the price of southern Bali.) Here are some of the best places to eat in Amed. Hit me up if I have missed any!
Warung Enak is a favourite with travellers coming to Amed and it’s easy to see why. Situated on the main street, they serve a great selection of salad, pizza, fish of the day and home made ice cream. They have recently extended their seating area but it still gets super busy, especially in diving season so get there early. Be prepared for things to take a while if you are in a large group. Notable mentions: Tuna and corn pizza and the tofu and egg salad. Jl. Raya Pengosekan Ubud, Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia
This is a small, unassuming and very clean warung close to the centre of Amed opposite the ATM and Barung dive centre. It is easy to walk straight past but if you do you will miss some of the best Indonesian food in Amed. Here you can get great nasi campur (a little taste of everything), satay chicken and fish, as well as fish of the day. The above meal of satay tuna will set you back about $6 AUD.
The husband and wife team here at Warung Mekar, just next to Bubu Rakok Homestay will make you feel like you have been invited into their home for a meal. Being on my own for a while, this was my go to place for dinner and lunch. The food takes a while, and tastes as it should, as everything, including the Sambal is made from scratch, so sit down and sip a Bintang and relax. If Made’s smile doesn’t pull you in, come here for the spring roll (the biggest one in Asia). Jl. Jemeluk, Amed, 80361, Indonesia
The Cup Coffee Shop & Cafe
A nice new addition to the Amed scene, The Cup Coffee Shop & Cafe, right near Lily & Amed bungalow has espresso coffee, crepes and lunchy type of things. With free wifi and a rooftop where you can sip on your latte end enjoy stunning views over Mt Agung, it’s a great place to stop, and possibly one of the nicest views I’ve had whilst sipping coffee anywhere in the world. Try the sexual chocolate waffle if you’re game (and let me know what it is!) Jl. I Ketut Natih, Amed, Abang 80852, Indonesia
One word essential for any Bali holiday. Happy Hour. The Griya does this well. Situated in Bunutan about 10 minutes out of Amed on the road to Lipah The Griya has two for one cocktails from five till seven pm every day of the week. The rooftop terrace draws locals and tourists alike with panoramic views and cushy couches. Order a pizza or head downstairs for steak or pasta. What is even better about this place, is that they will send a courtesy car to pick you up from your villa and drop you back, if you guarantee to spend $25 USD. I don’t know what that gets you in Australia. But not much! Desa Amed, Bunutan, Abang, Kabupaten Karangasem, Bali 80852, Indonesia
I didn’t even take a photo of the food here because the view is to die for. On the way to Lipah beach, Sails has uninterrupted views, good wine, a small range of Indonesian food and some staples like steak with chips and pasta. It’s one of the fancier places in Amed, meaning a meal for two with wine and dessert will set you back about $50 AUD. Come here for a special occasion. Pantai Lean, Jl. Amed Seraya, Amed, Bali
Also worth a mention:
The Green Cafe at Jemeluk Beach for cheesecake, coffee and breakfast. Galanga for vegetarian food, home made ice cream, and the cat. Sunset Point for precisely that, sunset drinks.
