Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I loved this place. I am very much into healthy eating and knowing food macros. This was perfect. Huge variety of food and drinks including all day breakfast and dessert. Staff are pleasant and friendly. Clean. Good service. Avoid busy periods. Better to go for...a late lunch or early breakfast as they can get very busy at peak times. Less busier in the evening.More

For me it’s a surprise why it’s such a popular place. The simple order with sunny side up eggs with hard yellow took them about 40 minutes and 3 attempts. Mushrooms were burnt. Blueberries in fruit mix were just frozen and it didn’t bother them...at all. Always will bring you something sweet before the main meal. And to be honest, healthy food and drinks can be soooo much more tasty. Even turmeric latte - how do you guys managed to make it bitter and honestly disgusting. We make it at home, you just take fresh turmeric and coconut milk and that’s all! It’s sweet and smooth without any sugar. Came here 3 or 4 times because of my elimination diet and every time something happens. UPD: I mentioned the same on another website and the reaction of manager was unbelievable: « we are sorry we could satisfy you ». Are you serious? Satisfy me? It’s a general rule of cooking and basics service for every cafe! I cannot imagine anyone being satisfied with burnt / frozen / undercook food and slow service. They also didn’t take any responsibility and said that probably « I scared them » so that’s why I got burnt, frozen and tasteless food. I swear that’s a quote. Me, 1,5m tall tiny girl scared them. By gently asking what I want and every time being nice?! Huh? The level of being not friendly and not client oriented is max. Finally I’m about to finish the diet and happy to never come back :)More

Motion Cafe is literally my most favorite place to eat, also they do delivery so that is a big bonus’’ I really enjoyed all their delicious food. The best in Bali.

Food is great. Healthy clean and huge portions. The only downside was having to wait for a table. Literally half of the dining tables had people sipping coffee and working on laptops. So rude and unfair to the restaurant/business. I think there needs to be...a policy on this as we almost didn’t bother to wait and went somewhere else...More

The food here is really tasty with lots of vegan/keto/protein-rich options. A bit expensive for me but I guess the price matches the quality.. . The downside for me is how unwelcoming the staff feels... Hardly ever a smile or eye contact, makes me feel...like a bother and uncomfortable to come back.More

I have stayed in canggu for a while now and tried so many cafes here. There are a lot of nice places to eat, but I always come back to motion. Great food, amazing coffee, lovely staff, good service and a diverse menu with food...for everyone. Great options for vegans and people who have an interest in what they eat. The staff is great at explaining the dishes and show a lot of knowledge about the foods they serve, which can be rare here in Bali. Would definitely recommend anyone to go here ☀️😊More

Followed it on Ins and thoughts it a must-visit place. Actually similar to all other cafes in Canggu that serve protein pancakes, smoothies, avocado stuff, etc. Very small and cramped place. Very warm. We ordered, my sweet potato waffle came first (very heavy and hard...to eat in the heat). My bf ordered a hamburger and we waited for more than 45 mins, and it still hadn't arrive after asking for it multiple times. Its strange that the staff did not bother to think why i was the only one eating at the table and he was just sitting there. There was also no sense of urgency when I got upset by the 3rd time. They said they were busy but the kitchen have clearly forgotten the order, while the wait staff did not bother to ask. Not a memorable meal and I left remembering nothing about the food (smoothie and waffle was just ok), and more fuming about the long wait and nonchalance towards all of it.More

The best cappuccino in all of Bali. Great place for delicious food, wonderful cappuccino and a nice setting. We go there at least once a week when we are in Bali and everything is always perfect. Turkish breakfast, meat salad or vegetarian - everything is...delicious. First enjoy the eyes, then the tongue and other senses. It's often full and it's nice to know in advance when there are fewer people. We strongly recommend.More

We went for brunch on the recommendation of a mate. Parking is a bit tricky (as just about everywhere in Bali) but some is available down a side lane. The place has a nice ambience despite being a bit close to the road and allowing...smokers in the front bit so you still occasionally get a whiff of their godawful pollution. That aside the food is excellent. I had the Big Surfer's brekkie and it was amazing, plenty of food and tasty. My wife had the standby avo on toast with eggs, pretty traditional for Bali but still good. Coffees are excellent too, and the artwork on the cappuccino is pretty impressive. Lastly juices are very good although the included juice with the Big Surfer was a bit watery and a bit small. Otherwise OK. Service is good - quick and efficient. Well worth a look if you're in the area.More

I was only in Canggu for a week but came back twice to this cafe, I loved it so much! This was my second time back to Canggu and could not wait to get back into Motion for the healthy and delicious food! The meal...sizes are huge and honestly I struggled to eat the whole thing! Very good value for money, add the great taste on top of that and you really can’t go wrong.More
