Exceptional service, a sublime degustation menu, and sophisticated interiors that capture the glamour and elegance of the 1920s... You'll want to book your seat at this Ubud fine diner, stat.
While Ubud is often best known for its rustic cafes and bohemian vibes, this typically bustling neighbourhood is also home to some of Indonesia’s most revered fine dining destinations; and Apéritif at Viceroy Bali sits right up there with the very best of them. Not simply slotting into Ubud’s fine dining repertoire, this unique and polished restaurant has elevated the island’s gastronomic reputation to spectacular new heights.
Just a stone’s throw from the centre of Ubud, Apéritif celebrates refined global cuisine at its finest – all the while integrating Indonesia’s exceptional culinary diversity. We’re talking flavours and ingredients that honour the old Spice Islands, combined with distinctly modern European cooking techniques from Belgian Executive Chef, Nic Vanderbeeken.
The result? A sublime degustation-only menu of unrivalled modern gastronomy, served up within exquisite interiors, and topped off with an opulent, Colonial-style bar that shakes and stirs the most fabulous pre-dinner cocktails. Of course, the clue is in the name: Apéritif – the ritualistic beginning to a dinner of epic proportions.
You’ll love it because… everything at Apéritif is executed impeccably. From the opulent and sophisticated interiors that capture the glamour and elegance of the 1920s, to the six-star service that is truly faultless, Apéritif goes above and beyond the call of fine dining duty. And this dedication to excellence carries through to the Sommelier, the black-tie servers, and of course, to the troupe of chefs who plate with military precision.
You’ll want to try the… multi-course degustation menu, which features either five or seven spectacular courses. Each dish from the sparkling, high-tech open kitchen is more magnificent than the last, from the selection of dainty amuse bouche, to the butter Opu Fish with Kaluga Imperial Caviar, the Canadian lobster and the desserts that are almost too exquisite to eat. The entire degustation is simply phenomenal. And there’s even a vegetarian menu too, which is on par with its carnivorous counterpart…
Come back for the… signature cocktails from within the Twenties-inspired bar. With its classic billiards table, imported cigars, its prohibition vibes and vintage-style Chesterfield sofas, this is one Ubud bar you’ll certainly want to prop up.
Apéritif is following strict Coronavirus protocols to ensure the utmost safety of its staff and diners. With limited seating, you’ll want to book ahead.
