1. Rumahan Bistro
We love a place that understands good design and great food. This perfectly embodied Rumahan. Rumahan means homey… it signifies a certain comfort for those who came. They serve a great range of soul food that hit close to home. Not only that, they also uses their space to sell a wide range of knick knacks and furniture. Because they are pretty spacious, they sometimes host bazaars and musical events. Their happy hour offers 40% off for coffee, tea and cakes and it is available on weekdays 15.00 – 18.00

4. Tavern 23
Eat, Sip, Santai are the three words they stood by. Tavern 23 is located right next to Vinoti Living biggest outlet in Bali. So, naturally the layout and design of the space is chic, cozy and beautiful. They have indoor, outdoor and a nice size pool that customer can use in a hot day. Tavern 23 has a good coffee menu, as well as other juices and other beverages. However, it is their food selections that make us fall in love with the place. Many are the owner’s own family recipe. We love their Grilled Cheese with Tomato Soup, breakfast burrito and their take on Pork Fried Rice. Have a party? This is the perfect place to do it!

5. Social Italian Resto
Pizza, pasta and homemade gelato are the three pillars of Social Italian Resto. However, this restaurant has so much more to offer. Go and visit them at the new Level 21 Mall, and choose a spot where you can relax and take great photos on their beautiful mural. Or you can enjoy their al fresco dining option and eat while seeing people passing by in the great outdoor. One menu you have to try is their 1-meter pizza with the topping of your choice, sweet or savory. They also have the social fruit party that can be shared with friends or loved ones. It’s definitely the new hot spot in Denpasar.
