Our Story

Where our story began

The Bali Food Safari adventure began in 2013 with a pair of passionate foodies on holiday, looking for a way to encounter a variety of restaurants and all the tastes from Bali’s diverse foodscape on those few precious nights away from the kids. Simon Ward and Gael Ward returned to Perth, working on establishing tour for friends and family to try all his recommended restaurants in one evening of culinary decadence, with the business quickly spotlighted by high profile outlets.

Now, Bali Food Safari operates from a dedicated office on the island of the gods and a team of safari hosts offering adventures in multiple languages. We’re mighty proud to offer the number one food experience in Seminyak, Jimbaran and Ubud and hope to welcome locals, visitors and everyone on our mystery dining tours, featuring some of the best restaurants of Bali.

 Our Partnering Eateries

All our partnering venues of Bali Food Safari are their own winning formula of great tastes, innovative dishes, charming atmosphere and an overall wow-factor experience. Our team works with each participating restaurant to help. For venues, being a part of a Bali Food Safari dining tour affords them a new audience they may not have seen before, giving them a taste of what’s on offer.

Our Standards & Values  

We’re devoted to serving excellence, adventure and true culinary discovery for all our guests. You’ll hear the team asking for your valued feedback on all our activities, relishing each morsel with a strong desire to improve and make everything we do a little bit better each time.  Independently operated from Bali after making the move from Perth to Indonesia, Bali Food Safari aim to provide tourists with a premium one night dining adventure for tourists and expats alike, supporting local businesses and non-profit organisations.
