Alila Seminyak has been stunning guests with spectacular holidays since its inception last year. Also gaining a lot of attention is the resort’s culinary powerhouse, the simply named but always imaginative eatery: The Restaurant. Its impressive menus cover a smorgasbord of diverse cuisines from early morning breakfast buffets through to sundown drinks and stylish dining.

Spread out from intimate indoor tables to al fresco candle-lit tables by the main pool with a view of the sea, the relaxed space really helps diners get in to the island mindset.

Chef Stefan Zijta, formerly the executive chef of Alila Villas Uluwatu, is now helming the culinary journey of the first hotel-style Alila property in Bali.  With the help of a talented culinary staff, Chef Zijta, works tirelessly to produce an awe-inspiring banquet every day. Starting with a spectacular spread at the signature Sunday Graze Brunch, fill your plate, selecting food from a wide assortment of international dishes, but make sure you save room for indulgent desserts and wonderful treats. As no brunch is ever complete without fine champagne, never let your glass empty and enjoy free-flow drinks throughout the afternoon. For lunch or late bites in the sun, international visitors will savour the opportunity to taste authentic Indonesian flavours such as the popular traditional gado gado, an adored Indonesian salad finished with a creamy peanut sauce. A heartier indulgence, the famous beef rendang is braised in coconut milk and garnished with fried shallots. Afterwards, finish your meal with a unique locally inspired rujak mango cocktail by the pool and sip the expertly blended marriage of absolute mango, kafir lime leaf, red chilli and tamarind.

As the night begins, book a table with a view of the resort’s breathtaking beach and prepare for an intimate and sophisticated dining experience to remember. Combining elevated Indonesian, Asian and Western flavours in one menu, every diner at your table will leave more than satisfied. Start with a glass of wine accompanied by small plates like the delicate steamed oysters as you watch the sun descend below the waves.  Then feast on succulent roasted tenderloin or the catch of the day blackened on the grill.  The perfect evening of relaxation and dining will leave you and your guests satisfied and mellowed after a simply singular gastronomic experience at this outstanding resort.
