Starting off with Ubud’s cuisine, the Kubu at Mandapa is known as the best fine dining in Bali, and it’s truly divine. The restaurant at a Ritz Carlton Reserve is cooled by Bali’s tropical breeze and the relaxing sounds of the Ayung River down below. It’s a signature bamboo restaurant surrounded by sheer decadence and nature. Thanks to the experience and direction of Madapa’s award-winning chefs, Kubu serves up Mediterranean-European delights and is prepared with the fresh premium ingredients that the region produces. Try out their six to eight-course degustation menus, where your hot date will love it, as this place is just that dreamy.


Nestled in a Balinese-style high thatched roof house and overlooking the exquisite “Valley of the Kings,” CasCades offers one fine dining experience you won’t forget. Managed and owned by Aussies, this place sources the best-produced ingredients globally, including the Australian Wagyu beef, French foie gras and Canadian lobster. Offers a sublime list of menus that comes with breathtaking tropical views. You can also enjoy a live Grand Piano performance every evening.

Romantic Dinner in Seminyak

It’s the ultimate escape from the island’s crowds; Seminyak is located alongside Kuta Beach’s coastline. It’s a sophisticated beach resort area with an endless choice of beach clubs, galleries, boutiques and restaurants. This idle town lets you take your time while sipping on your cocktail and enjoying some world-class cuisines while enjoying some of the best panoramic sunset views the island has to offer.


This restaurant is one of Seminyak’s best-known and respected dining spots. Sarong is the branch of the celebrated “street food chef” from Will Meyrick with a simple concept: to serve authentic Indian and Asian food within a fine dining atmosphere. There’s been many who are trying to imitate this place, but nothing beats the OG Sarong, as it’s one of Bali’s first restaurants to earn the recognition of “Asia 50 Best” awards. Everything falls perfectly in this Seminyak institution, from its high ceilings, plush vintage décor, and cocktail bar to the semi-alfresco areas.


This restaurant is part of the Potato Head epic empire. KAUM focuses on exotic Indonesian dishes served in a delicate dining setting (located upstairs of the famous beach club). Stepping into the restaurant, you’ll be greeted by the gorgeous interior, a delicious love letter to this fantastic archipelago that contains elements from all over Indonesia. So, buckle up and prepare for a culinary adventure you’ll never forget at this hotspot in Seminyak

Best Fine Dining in Nusa Dua

Resting peacefully on the island’s eastern coastline, Nusa Dua is known for its beautiful shorelines, breathtaking beaches and high-end resorts. The area has been completely changed into a destination for a lavishing holiday and honeymoon getaway. Nusa Dua has attracted honeymooners worldwide due to its splendid land. So, let’s check out some of its best restaurants to add to your Bali fine dining checklist.

Manarai Beach House

This place is a beach club, wine shop and restaurant combo located in Nusa Dua. The Manarai Beach House is the spot to chill all day beside the calm seaside staples. From the work of Indonesian favorite, chef Philip Miambimi and Executive Chef Stefan Poyet from the superb ISMAYA group of Indonesia.

It’s masterfully designed to match the relaxing beach club vibes. The menu ranges from mouth-watering beef satay with added gourmet touch and fine Wagy steak to vibrant platters of sushi rolled with ocean delicacies like tobiko and aburi salmon. We recommend that you order not one or two but three plates of Crispy Tuna Tempe topped with truffle aioli, caramelized and sprinkled with microgreens. There are really no words that can describe how sublimely tasty these bites are. Add these oceanfront feasts with any wine they’ve provided in the cellar, or try out the whimsical cocktail that uses the traditional ingredients.

Izakaya by OKU

As part of the Apurva Kempinski Bali, Izakaya by OKU is one of the many exceptional five-starred dining experiences of this Nusa resort. It’s an outpost of the award-winning OKU Japanese Restaurant from Jakarta, which brings all the finest flagship creations to Bali. However, this time it served within a casual and dynamic atmosphere that elevates the typical izakaya.

The restaurant offers a bistro-chic setting and an open kitchen that takes center stage. Their Aburi Salmon Rolls are a must-try along with the Teriyaki Chicken and truffled Gyudon. If you want to take it further for their super spesh menu, go for their five or seven Chef’s course, the “Okukase” degustation menu.
