Canggu Bali is synonymous with cool. Curated outfits hang on fashionable visitors as they wander the rugged footpaths, through small boutiques, delivering them to the cute Canggu cafes on every corner. It’s an influencer’s paradise. Thankfully though, it also remains a welcoming place for families, surfers and backpackers to chill out when in Bali too. It’s hard to keep up with the everchanging Canggu food scene but these are a few of the best Canggu restaurants in this popular Bali neighbourhood, right now.
