It’s about the food pt1

Choosing which restaurants to eat in on our retreat has been tough. Not because the food is terrible, but because there are so many great places to eat and we only have 6 days to eat them in. I’ve agonised and written the pros and cons of all the restaurants to narrow down the list, and finally we have ‘the list’.

You can probably tell that food is important to me. And you’d be correct. But it’s more than just the food, where we eat is also about the ambience, the view, the vibe or the practices of the restaurants. It is also about you. I care that the restaurants have something for everyone, that there will be something on the menu that you will eat. I want our dining to be positive experiences.

This is part 1 of the restaurant guide

Western and Indonesian cuisine and I don’t think the menu has changed in years. But that’s the beauty, you know what to expect. The food is delicious, especially the local dishes. And it’s all about the view here. They have a few restaurants in their stable and a Bali trip is not complete unless I eat at one of them



Batik  @batik_restaurant_bar

Amazing local and South East Asian cuisine in a beautiful space. Think colonial plantation house and you have the idea. A soothing place to escape from the madness outside. I could seriously eat here daily. Oh, and their cocktails are to die for 



Indus   @indusrestaurant

This is owned by the Australian expat chef Janet DeNeefe who moved to Ubud in 1984. She also owns Casa Luna restaurant and Honeymoon Guesthouse. And the creator of the Ubud Writers Festival. The food here is Asian fusion, but their authentic Indonesian dishes are a stand out. The architecture is old Bali and the restaurant commands breathtaking views over the Tjampuhan valley




As you can see, I’ve put the Instagram handle there so you can have a look at their accounts and get a bit more of a feel for them

I’ll have some more restaurants up in the next few days too

Happy day 1 of 2019
