Our villa manager in Candidasa suggested we go to Bali Adli on our way to Ubud. Great advice! The drive to restaurant is just stunning but nothing prepares you for the vista once you are seated...green, green fields and an overpoweringly huge mountain directly in front of you (which later became obscured by clouds). The restaurant was conceived, designed and... More

We enjoyed a very informative cooking class at Bali Asli. The chef explained us in detail for what the Balinese fruits and spices are used for cooking and healing. We were lucky because we were only two people registered for the class, so the chef had time to answer all our questions and to explain everything in detail. After the... More

Had lunch here a few weeks ago, and it really was outstanding. We opted for the share platter with a bit of this and a bit of that. Started with 3 different sambals with 3 different types of crackers. Gosh if this was anything to go by we were in for a treat! Couldn't stop ourselves from eating all this.... More

I went here with ourteam for our annual dinner. The food and drinks were really nice and authentic, though I'm a fan of spices and expected a little bit more on that front. The staff and host were really nice and warm, and proudly showed us their garden and explained nice stories about their dishes. The view at this place... More

Bali Asli is definitely worth the drive. It is about 30 minutes from Candi Dasa and the drive is pleasant. You can combine it with a trip to the Amlapura market. The food is delicious but the view and the setting is just gorgeous - great photo opportunities!

We (my wife and me) did a cooking class called "A day in the village” which included a walk through nearby rice fields and the visit of a farmer. We learned something about the local plants, fruits, farming and how to make beer out of pineapple juice. Afterwards we cooked a nice dinner together with the chef. He explained all... More

The whole experience was truly amazing from trekking to forest and rice fields to learning about the spices and cooking with magnificent view. Chef Dewa Ariawan really has a lot of knowledge about all the spices and cooking in general, you cqn learn alot from him. The number of dishes prepared is definitely more than one person can eat but... More

The location of this restaurant is amazing and well worth a visit if you are in the area. The view from your table stretches across the rice fields to the mountain and is breathtaking. Welcome drink on arrival was this amazing spicy salad drink that was so refreshing, followed by nice crispy crackers and chilli sauce for dipping. The menu... More

Bali Asli is located in Gelumpang village, near the town of Amlapura, the capital of Karangasem regency, in the North East of Bali. About 2 hours drive from the airport, and 30 minutes from Candidasa village, and 30 minutes from Amed village. Nestled in the foot hills of Mount Agung, Bali's most sacred mountain, surrounded by rice fields, there is not a building to be seen. Bali Asli promotes Balinese cuisine and culture without exploiting it or it's people. We embrace our community, supporting those who fish, farm and forage in the near by fields, ocean and jungle. Our menu offers authentic Balinese food using a traditional Balinese style kitchen, cooking on wood-fired, mud brick stoves, allowing the real flavours of Bali to shine. Most of our ingredients are either grown in our garden, in our neighbour's garden or purchased from the local market The cooking school runs unique classes themed on "a day in the life of..." every class includes an adventure into local areas off the beaten track. Weather it is learning how to plant rice or plough with a cow, fishing in a jukung canoe and cooking on an open fire or making cocktails from cashew nut wine, our students always leave with fond memories and new skills to experiment with when they get home.
