Apéritif Restaurant

Situated in the heart of Ubud’s lush jungle valleys, Apéritif, the second signature fine dining restaurant at Viceroy Bali, is a testament to culinary excellence. It’s a haven for food enthusiasts seeking top-tier produce, which is sourced from the hotel’s greenhouses and across the island and the world. Apéritif takes these pristine ingredients and meticulously crafts them into an 8-course degustation-only menu. The menu showcases dishes like the delicately cured Parrot Fish adorned with seaweed powder and the signature Venison Wellington, enriched with foie gras and finished with a rendang sauce. The cocktail program here is equally impressive, led by the award-winning bartender Ran Van Ongevalle. The concoctions pay homage to the Roaring Twenties, infused with a tropical Balinese twist.
