Amazing vegan restaurants in Bali: Where to get delicious plant-based foods and vegetarian-friendly cuisine you’ll enjoy! Even die-hard meat eaters want to visit these fantastic vegan restaurants these days.
If you are a vegan or vegetarian and want to eat out in Canggu, Seminyak, Uluwatu, or Ubud, don’t worry since there are many cafes and restaurants that are inexpensive and serve wonderful vegetarian and vegan food. In fact, there are so many vegetarian restaurants that we can only name a few of the best that we’ve tried. They’re all available for breakfast, lunch, and supper, so if you’re staying nearby, it’s worth stopping in.
They all serve local Balinese and western dishes and are usually close to one of the Bali villas you’re staying in. If you need to travel there, you could ask one of the villa employees to arrange transportation for you. If you are the daring kind and own a scooter, getting there will be a breeze, especially if you are staying in one of Canggu Villas or Seminyak Villas.
THE BEST VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN CANGGU
They’ve managed to mix a bike shop where you can actually buy a bicycle and a restaurant with some amazing vegan cuisine. It opened in September 2015 and has been a big hit since then. The cuisine is simply excellent, so after a good surf or a day sitting around your villa or the beach, head over to Peloton for their nutritious salads, amazing health juice shots (we had a lot of these), and of course the coffee. It’s a hive of activity here, with people coming and going with great energy – you’ll love it!
Not only do they serve delicious meals, but the juices add a creative boost to your day and include the option to include Superfood plants such as Spirulina or Moringa.
The legendary Revolver Coffee served with your choice of homemade nut milks or coconut milk, is a dessert in itself! Everything is fresh, mostly organic, created to order, delivered swiftly, and looks amazing!

Nalu Bowls is Bali’s first smoothie bowl shack, catering to people looking for a sweet and refreshing treat on sunny Bali days. We provide fresh LOCAL ingredients, homemade granola baked daily, and meals that will satisfy your taste buds.
This is a franchise or chain of healthy bars that are no bigger than holes in the wall or immediately adjacent to popular restaurants or companies. There is one Nalu Bowl bar attached to a popular restaurant in Berawa called Milk & Madu, and another just next to the co-working area at Echo Beach, where hipsters meet to work and check emails while enjoying a healthy bowl. There seems to be a Nalu Bowl restaurant popping up everywhere in Bali right now. There’s even one on the rock face at Uluwatu. We tried one right after a surf in Canggu and can see why they’re so popular. They are both delicious and healthy.
It’s ideal for breakfast or a post-workout or surf stop. It’s simple and quick, and you’ll be eating your nutritious bowl of fruit and yogurt in minutes. Furthermore, it represents excellent value for money.
This cutting-edge, plant-based Canggu cafe is a vegan game changer, serving cruelty-free cuisine that you’d never guess is vegan unless someone informed you. There are club sandwiches loaded with plant “turkey,” creamy vegannaise, and you’ll never guess it’s not bacon fake-on, as well as thick sandwiches that are unbelievably cheesy – the kind that adheres to the roof of your mouth and melts into a delightful gooiness.
Meanwhile, the burgers are so enormous, meaty, and gluttonous that they could nearly be called beefy. But, don’t worry, salads, wraps, colorful bowls, and juices are also available, all wrapped up in the cafe’s tropical-chic decor.
This Canggu café began as a yogurt and smoothie bowl store in Uluwatu, but the Canggu branches (there are two!) offer a full menu of unbelievably delicious vegan treats from brunch to dinner. It’s the kind of menu you’d never guess is vegan (until you read the fine print), with hearty dishes like gluten-free grilled pumpkin sandwich for breakfast, Southwest “chicken” bowl for lunch, and “cheesy” quesadillas for night.
There are also vegan sweet delicacies for dessert, as well as a variety of nibbly sides and appetizers to exchange and share. All of this is available in Berawa and central Canggu.
Address: Jl Pantai Berawa No. 44, Berawa & Jl Tanah Barak No. 7, Canggu; Open daily 7.30am – 10pm.
Burgeens is an all-vegan restaurant in the center of Canggu characterized as a “Plant-Based Paradise” where two plant-based powerhouses clash. Burgreens, Indonesia’s biggest plant-based food chain, and Green Rebel, an Indonesian food tech start-up developing all-natural plant-based meats and cheeses with authentic Asian flavors, collaborated on this innovation. Consider vegan rendang, the Mighty Mushroom Burger, a steak without meat, and vegan boba.
Alternatively, try the Balinese Nasi Campur, which comes with sate lilit, chicken sambal matah, long beans plecing, and balado tempeh and tofu. The best part? Beautiful, breezy spaces with views of Canggu’s famed rice fields.
THE BEST VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN UBUD
By consuming foods that Mother Nature longs to provide us with, such as colorful fruits, filling roots, fragrant spices, and a sprinkle of heritage rice.
Zest Ubud is one of our favorite vegan restaurants in Bali’s hippie center. Expect grilled jackfruit burgers with meaty pieces, stacked pizzas, and hearty sides like crushed cassava fritters and sticky spicy carrots. Don’t get us started on the sweets…. Ooey-gooey brownies with banana bread? Oh yes. Everything is a little naughty, but oh-so-very-nice – in more ways than one!

As global awareness about sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyles grows, Moksa Plant-based Restaurant & Permaculture Garden stands to join the bandwagon as the healthy and eco-friendly culinary establishment.
You’d never guess this is a vegan dinner with baked Jack Breast, a trio of vegan cheeses, and tempeh ribs. Everything at Moksa is plant-based and freshly prepared with love, from the moment the seeds are sown in Moksa’s very own permaculture garden to the moment the organic and all-natural ingredients are expertly arranged on your plate. It’s all here: eggplant cutlets, raw lasagna, and spicy laksa. And, just so you know, the white chocolate panna cotta is out of this world.

Drop by to sample their delectable meals (raw and vegan, of course) and stay for their holistic approach to life. You can treat your body and soul to everything from Taoist tonics and Ashtanga Yoga to raw food lessons and handmade Chinese teas.
We founded ourselves in 2013 with the intention of making tasty, healthy meals in a mindful and sustainable manner, overlooking the picturesque Tjampuhan Ridge in Bali’s cultural core.
The Elephant, a slow food emporium and all-around beacon of vegetarian goodness, combines cruelty-free cooking with stunning vistas of Ubud’s Tjampuhan Ridge. The food at this restaurant are all cooked with passion and presented elegantly, especially when coupled with a healthy juice or smoothie. Try the Pad Thai, laksa, sweet potato chips, and Vietnamese pancakes, and if you’re looking for a detox, the brunch drink list is not to be missed – for those who aren’t quite ready to give up their sinful pleasures entirely.

THE BEST VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN SEMINYAK
KYND is a community of earth-conscious foodies serving up plant-based foods and drinks for folks who like to tread lightly – all in pinch-me-cute pink décor with swings and Instagrammable lounges. Veggies and vegans will adore the cuisine, which is a smorgasbord of flavors that defies the vegan stereotype. Gourmet toasts with very healthy toppings, “chicken” schnitzels that taste like the genuine thing, and, of course, some of the best smoothies and waffles in town.
The Balinese Big Macs are our favorite, followed by the Japanese Ramen and capped with a vegan ice cream from the technicolor creamery next door. Who says vegan food has to be boring?
Finally, for dessert, Mad Pops is Bali’s wild and weird dairy-free ice-cream parlor, complete with neon signs, risqué paintings, 80s disco vibes, and technicolor vegan sprinkles. Mad Pops recreates all of the flavors that vegans have always wanted, from salted caramel ice cream to peanut butter popsicles. There is also a second Mad Pops parlor in Canggu, as well as other cafes and restaurants that sell these naughty-but-nice sweet delicacies.
