The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali consistently excels in providing extraordinary dining experiences throughout its premises, and the spotlighted venue, Ikan Restaurant, is certainly no exception.
Located along the beachfront of one of Nusa Dua’s top resorts, the open-air restaurant and bar of Ikan Restaurant boasts a contemporary island look that is easily recognisable from a distance. Ikan Restaurant offers distinct experiences day and night with its thatched roof, tactile furniture and locally inspired design elements. Functioning as a laid-back eatery during the day and transforming into an elevated dining destination in the evening, Ikan Restaurant specialises in serving fresh seafood and Indonesian-inspired cuisine by the beach.
The restaurant is thoughtfully divided into various seating arrangements to cater to individual guests and groups. Beachside seating near the bar invites guests to enjoy an aperitif before transitioning to the main restaurant area for dinner. Alternatively, the adjacent Ikan Bar, featuring wicker-back bar stools and a turquoise-clad island counter, provides a sophisticated space for imbibing. For those seeking privacy, the restaurant includes an air-conditioned private dining room accommodating up to 20 guests and a hexagonal semi-private dining area. Couples can also opt for five individual beach tables for romantic dinners.
Ikan Restaurant’s daytime and nighttime menus reflect a passion for local produce and Indonesia’s vibrant regional cuisine. Accompanying the esteemed culinary team is Beverage Manager Marlon Hermanto, a well-known figure in Bali’s bar scene. Marlon’s expertise in crafting cocktails and blending premium artisanal spirits with house-made infusions is showcased at Ikan Bar.
Guests are encouraged to share and explore the diverse offerings from small bites, tapas, mains and desserts. Noteworthy dishes include the crab spring roll with salad and Tangy Belimbing Wuluh Salsa, Udang Kalio – grilled jumbo prawns with kalio gravy, Belimbing Wuluh Relish and Char Chayote, slow-cooked Ayam Upih Betutu and freshly caught Jimbaran-style Ikan Bakar served with Sayur Urap vegetable and sambals. The Little Star Cuisine menu is also available from morning until night, catering hearty and healthy meals to children.
Complementing the dishes are Ikan Bar’s signature craft cocktails, such as the Gunung Agung, paying homage to the island’s mighty volcano, as well as the Leaf – a concoction of Beefeater gin, herbal liqueur, clarified calamansi cordial and soda water, leaving a strong note of vallina with a hint of nut. The bar also offers an excellent selection of craft beers, premium gins, araks and artisanal spirits.
This revamp has transformed Ikan Restaurant into more than just a dining venue – it has become a destination where guests can spend a day with friends and family, enjoying the restaurant’s laid-back vibes. Don’t look any further; create memorable moments with Ikan Restaurant at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
