When you just finished your first surf lesson at Odysseys Surf School you will be tired. Surfing is fun but it also costs a lot of energy, especially in the beginning. To recover good and gain enough energy for the next surf lesson, a good meal is highly recommended! Besides the many Warungs in Bali, there are also many good restaurants where you can enjoy a good meal. We made a list with some outstanding restaurants around Kuta Beach. Eating at one of these restaurants is almost better than surfing!
