Enjoy the secluded restaurant of this romantic boutique hotel in the mountains just behind Lovina. It offers fusion cuisine with Japanese and Indonesian influences. Ask a table under one of the trees around the pool and arrive early to enjoy the sunset next to the bonfire. They serve excellent cocktails that are freshly made by the ever-smiling bartender. I highly recommend their ’classic mojito’ as a cocktail and their ‘tuna tataki’ as a starter. As a main course I can recommend their 'mahi-mahi' filet. (see picture above)

Leon Bistro at Matahari Beach Resort.
The Matahari Beach Resort is located in the north west of the island near Pemuteran. The resort breathes a very traditional Balinese atmosphere with beautiful gardens in Balinese style.
Their beach restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. They serve international as well as Balinese dishes. The restaurant is located right on the beach and offers great service. The quality of all dishes is excellent. I recommend their fresh seafood dishes and their trio of lumpia. (see picture above)
If you go snorkeling on Menjangan Island in the morning, this is the perfect place for a late lunch.

Spice Beach Club
There are not that many beach clubs in north Bali and you can not compare them to the ones that you find in the south of Bali. Spice Beach Club is currently one of the best beach clubs in the North though. They offer great drinks at the cocktail bar (see picture above). I recommend to try their Classic margarita. As a mocktail they serve a great mint lemonade.
For the restaurant, you can chose a table on the restaurant platform or choose to sit on the beach itself, feet in the sand. Twice a week they have live music by a cover band and they often organize theme parties.
The food here is of decent quality. There is a wide variety going from local dishes to some European specialties or freshly baked pizza.
A free of charge pickup service is available for people staying in nearby hotels or villas.

This small and cosy restaurant is hidden in a small street in the center of Kalibukbuk /Lovina. They serve excellent Thai food with authentic flavors. I recommend to ask for a table on the second floor as it is cooler there. In this restaurant I recommend the stir fried chicken with cashew nuts and the green papaya salad.
