Mozaic has closed! In a statement released on 31 January 2022, the founder-owner of Mozaic, Chris Salan, said: “It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of Mozaic Restaurant and Dine@Home services. After 21 years of service, including two years of battling the effects of Covid-19 on the economy of Bali, we have decided that it is time to close until further notice and wait for Bali’s economy to recover. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your support and understanding.” On an Island that has suffered the devastating economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Central Bali community of Ubud has been hit especially hard together with many area hotels, restaurants, shops, and museums that are bereft of the foreign tourists who once filled their venues.While framing the closure as “temporary until better times return,” the abrupt closure on one day’s notice and the formal termination of 44 permanent staff suggests the future of Mozaic, and any possible reopening. remain in some doubt.

Aperitif @ The Viceroy, has continued to survuve durin ths horrible pandemic. No mean feat for such a fine dining restaurant. It is a tribute to the family management company behind The Viceroy that it has happened, Not only have they survived but they are still investing in the future of Bali. The latest announcement is the opening of their private dining room at Aperitif. Magnificent would be too simple a word to use to describe it. It is fit for a King, and likely to be graced by a few in the years to come. That such an incredible culinary team has been developed and maintained during this period is an exceptional achievement. Incredibly correct fine dining French cuisine is married with dishes that present the exotic spices if Asia. So many great dishes have been enjoyed here it is difficult to isolate just two but for me the Venison Wellington and a Beef Cheek Rendang will always come to mind whenever I think of The Viceroy.
