My old time fav restaurants will be of course The Made's Warung. It has two branches, one in Kuta and one in seminyak area. They offer various local / balinese cuisines as well as western cuisines.
My recommendations are the Nasi Campur, Deep Fried Tofu, Nasi goreng and the Arak Madu.
For cheaper alternatives, go to warung gossip and warung ocha. Warung gossip is located at kerobokan area and again seminyak road for warung ocha.

This is the best restaurant for seafood in Jimbaran Bay! You choose the fish and seafood you want before you go to your table, on the beach. They than serve you the seafood with vegetables, potatoes and rice, followed by tropical fruits as dessert. The seafood is so inexpensive! I advise you to go at the end of the afternoon, so you can watch the sunset while you have dinner. The food is delicious and the view amazing!
