Something Different!

Bittersweet is different! Jalan Monkey Forest in Ubud is always a busy frenetic rush, full of noise and chaos. Stop at Bittersweet and enter another world. An European style café, chandeliers and all. The décor is so different it is almost strange. A section of small booth tables for lone diners, another area of normal […]

Taste Explosions!

SANGSAKA offers the amazing combination of international standards with the spices of Indonesia utilising the expert skill of chef Kieran Moreland. It is an off shoot of the successful Merah Putih but oh so different. Merah Putih is bold and brassy, whereas Sangsaka is reserved and intimate, almost hidden behind the native shrubbery half way […]

Vegetarian in Ubud!

UBUD was not even on the Bali map years ago, just sometimes mentioned as an ‘Artist’s Colony’. Yet over time it has become Bali’s quality destination due to its culture preservation and fame as a top end restaurant and wellness location, with almost as many spas as restaurants.

Pick Up a Pizza!

The Dining Room is a pleasant open bamboo rotunda in Candi Dasa. In front is an impressive wood fired pizza oven that really stands out [pictured]. Managed by the nearby Watergarden Hotel the restaurant displays all of the professionalism of that connection. It is a level above the usual warungs and cafes of that area. […]

Ultra Fine Dining!

Aperitif is amazing! The Viceroy has a long history for presenting the highest quality cuisine. Its CasCades restaurant has been one of Bali’s best for more than a decade, but CasCades is now relegated to just their all-day restaurant, however it still presents an outstanding dining experience. Now they have opened yet another restaurant and […]
