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 30minutes from Candidasa village, and 30minutes 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.

I have been here a couple of times over the past few years and I love it. It's a little tricky to find and you have to keep your eyes peeled for signs and encourage your driver to keep driving even though it seems like you are driving to nowhere. Once you walk in the restaurant you will see it... More

no doubt that this restaurant got a stunning view of mount Agung and a beautiful paddy rice field. good decoration and also good place to gather with family. but the taste of the food not really good. kinda raw and less spicy for me as a local visitor the waiter was also kinda unpolite to the locals..

The best local food presented in an incredible atmosphere. The restaurant is surrounded by the forests and in a clear (not rainy) day you can see the volcano. Service is excellent and prices slightly above average for the set menu.

A one of a kind restaurant that gives you the taste of 'real Bali' - perfect harmony of delicious traditional food, beautiful decor and breathtaking views. There is a sense of personalised attention that makes this lunch stop a highlight of your journey.
