At most average Restaurants small bottle of Bintang 15 - 24000rp. Meals 30 - 80000rp. As mentioned above you can get cheaper and far more expensive meals, it depends on what and where you dine.

Where are you staying?

In the Kuta/Legian/Seminyak area you can get very tasty food and cheap beer as mentioned. Generally the rule of thumb is "if there are tourists in the place eating then the food is good".

Sanur and Ubud are slightly more expensive.

Of course you can go to gormet places and pay prices the same as at home.

Just got word from Bali that the beach sellers have had to put their prices up to RP20,000 for a Bintang. This apparently has come from the company raising their price of beer in the new year for the island. One would imagine that the resturants will now put up their prices as well.

I would love to hear if this is so, from others there now.

Just back from 17 days in Seminyak and Sanur. I was paying between 29,500 and 35,000 on average everyday for a large bintang. Main meals are between 30,000 amd 90,000. If you want basic indonesian food is mosting under 50k if you want european food greater than 50k.

You have much better choice of food and shops in Sanur than Nusa Dua, which is a private walled enclave of a few large hotels. Go to Sanur, you will also be able to socialise easier.

a cab between nusa dua and kuta approx IDR70000 each way. Nusa Dua is more for families, grey nomads and is full of large resorts. Not much in way of shopping and its pretty expensive
