La Monde Restaurant offers great authentic Indonesian food — some locals claim they have the best satays and spring rolls in Bali! Alternatively, there’s Warung Kolega if you want to have a legit local meal. We had fun trying out their Javanese-style ‘buffet,’ where you point at your preferred freshly cooked dishes behind a glass window and they serve it right up.

You can find various establishments that are open until quite late at night (or early morning even). Take your pick among different bar/club concepts: foam parties, rooftop pool bars, bamboo cradle-seats, a bar-slash-skatepark, and even a cathedral-looking club!
