It’s hungry work trying to decide where to eat, so we’ve done the hard work for you and rounded up the very best restaurants in Bali from every neighbourhood. This one’s for serious foodies. So much food, so little time *SIGH*. Choosing between Bali’s Best Restaurants is hungry work, especially when there are more sensational restos popping up across the island than you can wave a fork at. And that’s before we even get started on the cafes, the brunches, or the monthly lineup of Hot New Tables (believe us, there are plenty of them).
Yep, as you probably already know, Bali is becoming a real foodie destination, with all the best cuisines from around the world now on our tiny paradise island. And it’s not only the food that’s getting global gourmands’ attention. We have designer decor, celeb chefs, chic cocktails and awards a go-go – not to mention some of the most dreamy settings on the beach, clifftops, and deep in the jungle…
So, we’ve done the hard work for you and we’ve rounded up Bali’s Very Best Restaurants – the cream of the culinary crop from every neighbourhood. If you’re after Bali’s best local food, the best cafes or the best coffee shops, this one ain’t for you. But if you’re a die-hard gourmand or a curious epicurean, then bring your appetite and get dressed in your best – here are Bali’s Very Best Restaurants for serious foodies.
Aperitif sources the finest ingredients from across the island and the world – and from its very own greenhouses. Set amidst the lush jungle valleys of Ubud, Apéritif is the second signature fine dining restaurant at Viceroy Bali (joining CasCades, above). It’s main culinary focus is on top-shelf produce, sourced from the hotel’s own greenhouses and from across the island and the world. These ingredients are then presented in an exquisite 8-course degustation-only menu, featuring sublime creations like the lightly cured Parrot Fish rolled in seaweed powder, or the signature Venison Wellington studded with foie gras and dolloped with a rendang sauce. The aperitifs here are unsurprisingly impressive too, spearheaded by award-winning bartender Ran Van Ongevalle, and inspired by the Roaring Twenties with a tropical Bali twist for good measure.
Apéritif, Jl Lanyahan, Banjar Nagi, Ubud, p. +62 361 9082777, e. firstname.lastname@example.org. Open Wed – Mon 4pm – 1am.
