The Ultimate Guide to Eating and Drinking in Petitenget, Part 1 starts at the very top of Jalan Petitenget where it meets Jalan Kerobokan and has such famous high-end restaurants like Sardine, Metis and Barbacoa.
The Ultimate Guide to Eating and Drinking in Petitenget, Part 2 covers Jalan Petitenget from the corner of Batu Belig down to Go.Fresh on the corner of Jalan Lb. Sari. This stretch of road includes Pison, Ling Ling’s and Kynd.
The Ultimate Guide to Eating and Drinking in Petitenget, Part 3 follows on from Jalan Lb. Sari all the way to the bottom of Jalan Kayu Aya (also known as Eat Street) and includes Merah Putih, Biku and Woobar.
French Mediterranean Restaurant & Lounge at the top end of Petitenget. Classicly refined French cuisine with local ingredients combined with a killer lounge bar and sensational view over private gardens makes this a top 10 must-do restaurant in Bali.
Barbacoa is a must-go Argentine steakhouse at the top end of Jalan Petitenget. Oustanding wood-fired grilled meats and vegies (try the grilled, glazed carrots). Fantastic wine list. Make sure you book during peak evening times.
Prohibition bars are difficult to find for a reason. In fact, we shouldn't tell you this, but without a doubt, this is the best tucked-away-find-me-if-you-can cocktail bar in Bali. The bartenders are literally artisans in the dark arts of bespoke cocktail making and shaking.
Arrive late (after 12 on a Friday and Saturday is busiest) or earlier on weeknights to slow down and take in what makes a great cocktail bar. Intimate, eccentrically decorated and an outstanding soundtrack. #bucketlist
Stunning contemporary seafood in a beautifully decorated setting makes Sardine a date-night winner. The view onto their own private, artistically-lit rice-fields is worth dining here alone, but the food makes this a definite Top 10 on the Bali restaurant scene.
The best rustic Italian in town. Lo-fi funky decorations, outstanding pizzas and fantastic Italian sandwiches make this place a favourite with the locals. Great, inexpensive wine by the glass and regularly changing menu. Put this on your list. It's a winner.
Mad Ronin does great ramen for people who know what great ramen is. Their ramen is also a gateway drug to the cocktails served at the prohibition-style bar 40 Thieves, with the entrance behind a black curtain at the rear of the restaurant.
If you can't follow these easy directions you probably don't deserve either the ramen or the cocktails.
Lantern is owned by the same people who brought us Bo & Bun, which means the food is elegantly simple and exceptionally tasty. Must try are the 12-hour pho and the vindaloo.
Da Maria brings a Mediterranean vibe to Bali with a seamless transition from osteria to party venue with pizzas and prosecco all that is required for a good time.
Could there be a better name for a Vietnamese noodle bar than Nam Nam? We don't think so. Try the Vietnamese coffee and banh mi. Solid Wifi, outside garden looking over the rice fields and parking out the front.

It's not called Pit Stop for nothing. If you're running out of fuel, this burger joint at the top of Jalan Petitenget will keep you fed and watered until 4am. A favourite haunt of the late night clubber, Pit Stop is a classic diner-style no-frills burger joint.
The brain-child of Rafi Papazian, Monsieur Spoon in a legend in Bali for having the best croissants on the island. They also have excellent coffee, solid WiFi, several locations and a huge following among the expat community.
