As well as street food and many local restaurants there’s another level of cuisine for connoisseurs of fine food in Seminyak.
KU DE TA
Under a sea of purple lanterns and with the roar of the Indian Ocean, the setting at Ku De Ta is impressive.
From early morning till late, the food and atmosphere at this beachfront destination won’t disappoint.
This charming restaurant over looking tranquil rice fields provides respite from the Seminyak traffic. Light and delicious, the lunch menu was rich with fish selected daily from the local Jimbaran fish market.
It’s also a great place to watch the sun go down with a very good ‘bites’ menu, so I’m told.
Sarong’s exceptional and extensive Indonesian menu is matched by a plush and rich interior. With 12 at our table we chose a set menu and feasted on an endless array of suburb dishes. The restaurant has a long list of accolades including a place in the top five best Asian restaurants in 2011, by The Singapore World Gourmet Summit.
With stepping-stones over water, leading to two eating pavilions this restaurant is slick and it’s no surprise it’s number one on trip advisor.
Potato Head, famous for its beach club is an architectural statement resembling a racecourse surrounded by a coliseum like building. It has three restaurants and opens onto the beach. We ate at Lilin and ended up at the beach club for a final cocktail.
