WHERE TO EAT & DRINK IN KUTA, LOMBOK – INDONESIA

WHERE TO EAT DRINK KUTA LOMBOK EL BAZAR

Although we had just a few short days in Lombok this time round, it was enough time to fall for the charm & character of the island.  It’s got all the quirkiness & charm of Bali, but with only a fraction of the people, and we plan to return early next year to explore more of what the island has to offer.

Thanks to nearby beaches offering some of the best surf in INDONESIA, Kuta is a haven for avid surfers.  Consequently, a number of trendy hangouts now adorn the town & beach front.  If it’s your thing, visitors are guaranteed a party each night of the week.  Or for a more chilled vibe, there are some awesome bars and restaurants to enjoy.  

As always, you can rely on us to check out the best of the best when it comes to food places in the area.  And we were delighted to find that there are some delectable choices in Kuta.  Here is our favourite of the bunch, as well as some cool bars that are well worth checking out:
