INSIDE: Everything you need to know about visiting Old Mans Bali with kids. 

Hot humid days in Bali call for icy cold milkshakes.

The best milkshakes in Canggu can be found at this hip but low-key surfer hangout, reminding me of Bali from 20 years ago.

Take your kids for a Icy Cold Milkshake at Old Mans Bali, and enjoy the fun atmosphere and views of the water. 

Plus, put this Bali restaurant on your list of cool Canggu restaurants to visit for brunch, lunch or an early dinner with the kids.

Find all the details of how to get to this family friendly beach club, and more, below.

Guide to Old Mans Bali Restaurant

Old Mans Restaurant and Bar is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner from 7am until 9pm at night.

The open-air restaurant is the ideal spot for kids and families, like an old school Aussie surf club, where kids are welcome and won’t get in the way, even if they wander the place or play.

There’s a dedicated box of wooden toys for the kids too.

We love how cruisey it is. It’s definitely somewhere we’d recommend to other families with kids for lunch, or a very early dinner, followed by a bit of beach time.

More about Old Man Canggu Bali

Old Man’s Restaurant is one enormous hall under a thatched roof filled with tables and chairs, lounges and low tables, bar stools and benches, and family banquet seating.

The outdoor space and garden area is chockablock with more picnic tables, sofa seating and lounges, all covered with iconic and colourful Balinese umbrellas with cute fringing.

Go early to take your pick.

(This place is a local’s hang out during the day for expats and long-term Bali stayers, and fills up quick)

The picnic tables out front have glimpses of Old Man’s Beach (Batu Bolong) behind the car park.

Grab one of these tables to keep the kids entertained with the comings and goings of Bali life outside the restaurant.
