We have spent many a rainy Sunday in their wonderful cinema space on the comfy reclining couches munching on popcorn and delicious vegetarian and vegan goodies from connected Down to Earth. Don’t be put off by the Ubud-ness of how it sounds, they have plenty of amazing things on their menu that kids love. Some of our faves are the potato wedges, Mediterranean platter for sharing and the fabulous smoothies, lassies and juices. Don’t even get me started on the raw chocolate and coconut goodies…


Now all I can think about is the tasty food, but what great fuel it is for all the yoga, dance and other workshops they hold there! We love the regular kids acro-yoga with Noga and have had a great time at workshops like the Bali Circus, which was a special one during the 2nd annual Bali Vegan Festival.



Paradiso is just what so many people have been waiting for in Bali; a place of culture, fun, great food and learning all rolled into one lovely package. They screen films from all over the world, documentaries, and vintage favorites like The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins and Peter Pan. It’s a great place to meet interesting people, connect with other families and also just hang out.

Bali Coeliac and Allergy Safe Restaurants (By Area)

Bali Coeliac and Allergy Safe Restaurants (By Area)

We get tons of questions about Bali coeliac and allergy safe restaurant options. It can be a serious worry with the language barrier and also the worry of not being close to the food and medical options you might be used to. It’s always a good idea to carry a card in Bahasa Indonesia that clearly states how dangerous you or your child’s allergy is. Attached at the bottom of this post is a downloadable card to print off!


Seaside Restaurant

This might be the last place you’d think would be serious about gluten free food, but it actually has an extensive GF menu and the staff are also well versed in other allergies. Whether you stop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner, there is plenty on the menu from full breakfasts with GF bread to spring rolls and a great selection of soups.

A note on Nusa Dua hotels: Although there aren’t really any specific GF or allergy-friendly options, all hotels in Nusa Dua will offer some options for dietary requirements. It’s always best to be clear when you check in if you have allergies or intolerances and ask if anything specific can be ordered in advance, i.e gluten free bread. Be especially careful at buffet breakfasts where foods can often get mixed, prepared or cooked together.
