The days of airports providing fast food outlets to rushed passengers are long gone. With all the excitement of international travel in mind, we know that vacations begin as soon as your bags are checked and you finally have your boarding pass in your warm hands.

With travel finally picking up, it’s great to see airport lounges coming back to life, particularly in our favorite destination, Bali. Now you’ll find a number of food and beverage outlets serving high-quality, healthy, fresh, nutritious and filling meals that can help ease any end-of-holiday blues you may be experiencing.

We’ve put together a list of our favorites and none of them scream ‘departure lounge’.

Here are some options for getting the best food and drink Bali airport has to offer…


Sometimes it’s hard to get healthy but delicious food at the airport, but FRESH has helped fill that gap. They are located before the check-in gate at the international exit and are accessible to public customers along with traveling guests. The perfect place to grab a farewell bite with friends who are taking you to the airport, or to hang out while you wait for the check-in gate to open.

As the name suggests, everything FRESH serves is natural and nutritious. There’s something healthy, filling, and tasty for everyone, from fresh juices, smoothies, or cool, refreshing salad bowls, and Build Your Own Protein Bowls to power you through your day of travel. Vegetarians and vegans take note: FRESH has plenty of options for you, including plant-based milks. We love the Immunity Cold-Pressed Juice, Mango Lemonade, Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Shake, and Create Your Own Sandwiches with over 25 filling options.

FRESH is also our one stop shop for snacks to take on the plane. They have plenty of snacks and drinks ready to go, like cold-pressed juices and infused water.

2. High tide bar

Whether you’re a super-organized or super-eager traveler arriving at the airport too early, it’s worth noting that High Tide Bar, next to the departures terminal, serves amazing cocktails and cold beers on tap. There are also plenty of hearty food options on the bar menu.

High Tide Bar has beachy vibes and relaxed seating in an open-air setting. You can enjoy a few moments of rest after the madness of packing and the rush of the last day of vacation.

A wide selection of wines, beers and spirits is offered. You can start your trip in style with a classic Mojito or perhaps an Espresso Martini. The bar menu is versatile, with a large Mezze platter perfect for groups, Wagyu ground pizza and Bangers & Mash. This place also makes a bad burger. High Tide Bar is fully equipped with charging stations and unlimited WiFi, so you’ll stay connected throughout your transit. Customers always leave satisfied and there are great reviews to show for it.

From dim sum to bao buns, Vietnamese pho, Korean bibimbap, Japanese sushi, ramen and aromatic Indian butter chicken – at Two Dragons you can choose from the best Asian dishes. Located opposite the A&B International gate, Two Dragons is a vibrant restaurant decorated with deep red interiors, the lucky color in many Asian cultures, and is inspired by the lively Asian street food scene. There are plenty of vegetarian options and we love the do-it-yourself noodle dish option!

If you like bubble tea, you’ll have plenty of options available with custom bubble tea, as well as drinks like Lychee Breeze, Green Tea Blast, and Vietnamese Coffee or Iced Teh Tarik.

4. The Coffee Club

Australia’s local coffee, The Coffee Club, is now available at Bali International Airport. Located right in front of the C&D international gate, this is a great meeting point so you can also sit down and enjoy a coffee. The Coffee Club is popular for all-day breakfasts like the Smashed Avo on Sourdough, the Camembert Chicken Bacon Flat Grill, and the Buttermilk Pancake Stack to name a few. And let’s face it, when you’re traveling across time zones, it’s nice to know you can eat breakfast any time of day. In addition to specialty coffee, you can also find refreshing drinks like their Yuzu Citrus craft soda or mixed berry chia seed smoothies and a specially curated selection of wines.

5. Wolfgang Puck Kitchen + Bar

World-renowned culinary legend Wolfgang Puck has opened Wolfgang Puck Kitchen + Bar in Bali’s international departure lounge. Be ready to arrive at the airport and check in early so you can experience the first Wolfgang Puck store in Indonesia.

The spacious and well-designed restaurant draws you in immediately, but the menu will make you want to linger. You’ll find tasty breakfast options like the WP Signature Big Breakfast, Cast Iron Baked Eggs, and Old Fashioned Grain Bowl. For afternoon or evening travelers, you can grab lunch or dinner and feast on Wolfgang Puck’s decadent favorites like Chicken Chinois Salad, Shrimp Linguine, Wolfgang Puck Burger, or Fresh Pizza Stretch by hand. It’s good to note that Wolfgang Puck has many dietary options including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free.

There is also a well-stocked bar so you can accompany your meals with Wolfgang Puck creations such as the Pearfact Martini, the Moscow Mule or the WP Aged Barrel Negroni. You can find Wolfgang Puck after immigration check-in, near gate 3.

This little hole-in-the-wall cafe offers a powerful selection of snacks and meals. It is a quick service counter with dishes inspired by Asian street food.
