Every year NOW! Bali Magazine undertakes a huge campaign called the Bali Best Restaurant Bar and Cafe Awards in an effort to support and promote the island's growing food and beverage community. Through three separate campaigns - Readers Choice Awards, Editor's Choice Awards and Industry Choice Awards - the most popular, unique and noteworthy venues are brought to the forefront and honoured for their continuous efforts in providing the people of Bali, both residents and tourists alike, with food, drinks and experiences worth remembering.

Readers Choice Awards

Through an intense online campaign, open to any restaurant, bar or cafe in Bali willing to participate, foodies and fans vote for their favourite venues on the island in a huge public forum. The campaign runs on a live voting system created by NOW! in order to ensure non-bias and total transparency.
