Byrd House beach club
Opening hours: 6:30-23:00
Average bill for two: 300,000-400,000 rupees
I've placed this restaurant at the top because it's the best place in Sanur where you can combine relaxation by the ocean/pool with children's entertainment. There are beachfront sun loungers available. They have a dedicated area for safe swimming for children, and there are lifeguards on the beach.
The restaurant is located in the best part of the eastern coast of Bali, so guests can enjoy magnificent sunrises in the morning and breathtaking sunsets in the evening. Byrd House beach club is a vast area with the main restaurant, a bakery, a pool with a lounge area, and a children's playground.
The large children's area includes slides, a sandbox, and a rope climbing structure. The only downside is its location. The children's area is not shaded from the sun, but the Byrd House beach club's grounds are lushly landscaped, which provides some relief from the strong sun during the daytime.
You can spend an entire day here: cool off, treat yourself to relaxing spa treatments, or try out cocktails at the Byrd lounge. To use the pool and lounge on the sun loungers, if you are not staying at Byrd House beach club, you need to place an order from the menu for a minimum of 200,000 Indonesian Rupiah. This amount includes a towel.
The children's menu here includes vegetarian dishes, fruits, pasta, chicken, and fish sticks with french fries. For a meal for two, you can expect to spend around 300,000 Indonesian Rupiah. However, the cuisine and service are excellent.
This place has a very stylish design. The main building of Byrd House looks like a bamboo nest. In the evening, the grass near the restaurant is illuminated with numerous ear-of-corn-shaped lights, creating a mesmerizing atmosphere. It's very inviting and makes you want to dine at this establishment.
A bonus for children is the contact zoo. Throughout the Byrd House beach club's grounds, you can encounter a goose and three pheasants. They seem to feel quite at home here.

The bakso bar
Restaurant serving bakso
Opening hours: 8:00-22:00
Average bill for two: 120,000-180,000 rupees
The café is located in the northern part of Sanur, on the border with another Bali district, Ubud. In this location, there are more drawbacks than advantages, which is why it's ranked last. The most significant drawback of this café is its proximity to the road. Another significant downside is that the children's play area is not shaded from the sun.
The third fact can be both a minus and a plus for bakso lovers. The menu only includes this dish with various additives and a small selection of drinks.
