We came here for lunch during a stay in nearby Jasri. The view from Bali Asli is stunning, even in the rain. The staff were so welcoming and the Indonesian dishes were delicious. It's definitely worth a visit.

I can't rate our Bali Asli experience highly enough, we had an absolutely brilliant "Day in the Life of an Indonesian Fisherman" from our driver Made, to out fisherman, O'Neil, our chef Dewa, Gudi and all the staff.

If you are anywhere near Amlapura please do make a short detour to have a meal at Bali Asli. The setting is fantastic with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. This Balinese food taken to the next level. Definitely worth a trip.

Location and Contact Information

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.
