Bali is undoubtedly one of Southeast Asia’s reigning kings (the name “Island of The Gods” doesn’t come from just nowhere) when it comes to the best vegan restaurants.
Exuding wellness from its very core, Indonesia’s most popular island truly excels when it comes to organic and plant-powered dishes.
Ubud, with its jungle surroundings, endless rice fields and spiritual energy is Bali’s hotspot for plant-based goodness.
But Canggu and Seminyak, known for their sandy beaches, surfer vibes and curated collection of bars, aren’t trailing too far behind.
It doesn’t matter which of Bali’s neighbourhoods you find yourself exploring or staying in. Or whether you’re looking for a vegan-friendly post-workout snack, a fully fledged evening meal or something stronger with a signature cocktail, you’ll find it somewhere on the island.

Tanaman at Potato Head, Seminyak

Alchemy’s menu is the definition of clever: although technically it’s entirely raw and vegan, this restaurant uses interesting methods to change the structure and definition of its ingredients without using too much heat to take away its raw status. As you might expect from this, Alchemy is laidback and chilled, a spot where you’ll be welcomed with a large group of friends just as much as you will be when you turn up with a book by yourself.
The menu here is perfect for picky eaters and less so those who are indecisive: everything is tailored, editable and DIY, from soup bowls to salads, smoothies and the breakfast bar. Alchemy is a brilliant spot any time of day, from breakfast to dinner. But if there’s one thing you don’t want to skip here, it’s dessert. Alchemy’s raw vegan desserts are locally famous and top of the game.

Merah Putih, Seminyak
Bamboo lobster dumplings, zucchini flowers, smoked goat’s belly and red emperor crudo: Merah Putih is one of Bali’s best organic restaurants and has a mouthwatering menu to match. Brilliant taste and spectacular presentation sit hand in hand here, in a gorgeous setting that you’ll order a post-dinner drink at just to spend some more time admiring.

But that’s only ever a good thing: dishes here are made with care and attention and it’s virtually impossible to eat something you don’t enjoy at this spot. Beautiful decor and high ceilings make this large spot seem even larger, but a warm atmosphere more than counteracts the huge space of Merah Putih.

Perfect for those on a health kick or anyone who fancies a meal made entirely of good things, Seeds of Life is a cute, cosy and wholesome spot in the Ubud jungle.
Just because it’s a raw vegan cafe doesn’t mean the dishes are restricted to leaves: Seeds of Life is just as inventive as it is innovative: vibrant and colourful dishes stand their ground on the 14-page menu, including the likes of pizzas, veggie bowls, spicy buffalo wings and burritos. It’s a place with a perpetually chilled atmosphere that’s great for catching up with friends or simply for bringing along your favourite book and settling down for a few hours.

Living Food Lab, Canggu
Canggu’s Living Food Lab is famous for its vegan sushi: taking away the notion that sushi must contain raw fish and instead replacing it with a delicious variety of plant-based equivalents that taste just as good as they make you feel. But Living Food Lab doesn’t only serve sushi: this vegan restaurant is home to a menu the size of a small book with juices, probiotic drinks and smoothies on the drink menu and appetisers, sandwiches, bowls, salads and sweets making up just a small part of the food menu.
It’s also a place with an especially wholesome goal: to spread the “aliveness” of humans, awareness of how we live and with the intention of making more conscious choices. Come here for not only a brilliant breakfast or lunch, but also a welcoming smile from the staff and a perfectly balanced atmosphere that’ll have you feeling refreshed and nourished when you leave.

Shady Shack, Canggu
The only thing shady about Canggu’s The Shady Shack is the beautiful palm leaves gently caressing its doors.

It’s virtually impossible to step inside this restaurant without feeling the friendly atmosphere all around you; something that’s heightened when you sit yourself down and familiarise yourself with the huge portions in front of you.
Dishes here are mostly healthy — but in a fun way. Salads are served across an entire spectrum of colours, with interesting combinations and additions you wouldn’t necessarily include yourself. Desserts dance between being healthy and indulgent: delicious mouthfuls that taste far more decadent than their short list of organic ingredients would suggest.
