The 50 BEST Canggu Restaurants, Bars and Cafes

Canggu is Bali’s ultimate foodie hub and you’ll quickly realize that the Canggu restaurants and bars are worth ALL the hype. So whether you’re a digital nomad staying in Canggu long-term, or a tourist simply passing through, this ultimate Canggu restaurants guide is your answer to the everlasting ‘where should I eat today’ question.

This guide to bars and restaurants in Canggu is organized by categories of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I have also included my favorite cocktail places, beach bars, and cafes. All of these, every single one, is a real visit. This guide is not about picking the most popular spots and adding them here, all of these spots have been carefully selected. I know, what a sacrifice I’ve made to eat out this much, hehe!

Best bars and restaurants in Canggu, organized by category

I’ve been there – I googled best Canggu restaurants, and while I did get some nice suggestions, a few times I ended up arriving at the place for breakfast just to find out it opens from lunch onwards. So I decided to split the Canggu restaurants in this list by category, to make it super useful for anyone who doesn’t want to waste time researching when the best time to visit is.

In my 4 months in Canggu, I’ve visited even more places than you see on this list, but not all of them made it to this article. There are some restaurants in Canggu that offer free food for 5-star reviews. I have not taken up on any of those offers, so all the Canggu best restaurants on this list are 100% NOT sponsored. I paid for all the food and wanted to make as honest as possible list of my personal favorites.
