Made’s Warung – Oldest Restaurant in Bali

Whenever I visit a place, I always like to visit the oldest restaurants. I visited the oldest fish and chips restaurant Rock & Sole Plaice in London a couple years ago and Made’s Warung during a recent trip to Bali.

Established in 1969, Made’s Warung is the oldest restaurant in Bali. It started off as a humble roadside stall in the 1960s when Kuta was still a sleepy fishing village. It has since grown into a cosmopolitan restaurant with 5 outlets in Bali.

Dining at Made’s Warung feels like an invitation into a traditional Balinese home. The main restaurant still retains the ancient Balinese architectural style, with photographs and artwork telling stories of the olden days.

Made's Warung - Outdoor Seating

The courtyard is equally as beautiful,  with fairy lights illuminating the area. Rattan chairs and black barstools stand side by side of each other, the non-uniform tables and chairs adds to the homeliness of the place.


You can find a mixture of traditional Balinese cuisine, Thai food and Western dishes on Made’s Warung menu.

Made's Warung - Oxtail Soup

The Balinese really know how to make a mean Oxtail Soup (Soup Buntut) [IDR 150K]. The oxtail meat is a little tough but the soup is so fragrant with lots of vegetables.

Made's Warung - Nasi Campur

Nasi Campur [IDR 65K] is the Indonesia version of “mixed” rice. The plate consists of white rice with pork satay, stir-fried pork, stir-fried egg with French beans, loofah soup and fried pork skin.

Made's Warung - 1/2 Nasi Campur 1/2 Gado Gado

You can also get nasi campus combinations such as 1/2 Nasi Campur 1/2 Gado Gado [IDR 65K]. Gado gado is an Indonesian salad of blanched vegetables drenched in peanut sauce.

Made's Warung - Spare Ribs

It’s amazing how a Balinese makes such delicious Spare Ribs [IDR 150K]. The ribs are so well-marinated, every strand of the meat is infused with the sweet marinate.

Made's Warung - Squid Garlic Sauce

That Squid Garlic Sauce [IDR 110K] hit all the right spots. The squid are soft and chewy while the minced garlic sauce makes the dish so aromatic.
