Like most places in Bali, Candidasa is filled with an abundance of warungs and restaurants. Most of them have similar dishes. Since Candidasa is a fisher town, a lot is seafood.
Do not worry, there is plenty of places to eat with many and diverse (new) things to try. So get your appetite on, I am about to tell you which restaurants you can try. Most are located next to or nearby on one of the main roads in Candidasa.
Recommended: If you plan to go around Bali, try East-Bali where it is secluded, more peace and calm for your relaxing getaway. Have you tried also reading about what to do in Candidasa and Where to stay in Candidasa? These restaurants are all very nearby the places to stay in Candidasa that I recommend.
Are you looking for some seafood? This place serves fresh and tasty food. Not only that, you get the kind of service that would make you want to come back. Their prices are very cheap for what you get.
For vegetarians, you could ask if they can cook something special for you. If it’s possible they will try to make you a vegetarian tasty dish.
If you are staying at one of the hotels I have suggested, then chances are you get a free pick-up and drop off. Just call or message them in advance to make an appointment. This restaurant serves more than only seafood. They have a variety of Italian food, local Indonesian food, and steaks, fries and all that.
The food is presented in a contemporary way. It feels almost very luxurious even. There are 3 gazebo’s to eat in their garden. They have other places but the atmosphere in a gazebo is just more romantic.
Nice ambiance and music at this small place. Of course, the food is worth a try when you are in Candidasa. This family-run warung brings your portions a bit bigger than the average dish.
If it’s not all too busy you might get to try arak while you wait for your order (Indonesian distilled drink). I am not into strong alcoholic beverages, but for those coming in it’s a chance to try it out.
Sustainability movement: They clean the beach and surrounding frequently from plastic #trashheroes. If you want to support them eat there, and ask how you can help.
Are you looking for a restaurant that has vegetarian options? Well, The Hungry Crocodile has it. With also a pick-up and drop off service if your hotel is nearby.
They have a kid’s menu, especially for the children. On some of the nights, there will be live music. This Restaurant also runs a hostel, the sleepy croc. It is also a recommended place to stay for budget travelers.
A family-run warung and very secluded. This place offers authentic Balinese Indonesian food. It’s a bit secluded to the east of Candidasa, but if you are in for some good local food, then this is the place.
