Kobujime Tiger Grouper Sashimi

at The St. Regis Bali Resort

Kayuputi Restaurant at the St. Regis Bali is unquestionably one of Bali’s leading and most sophisticated fine-dining experiences. Helmed by award-winning Executive Chef Agung Gede, it offers guests an exceptional range of Asian-influenced haute cuisine with peerless service and a colossal selection of hand-selected wines displayed in its imposing two-story glass wine cellar.

Spacious and elegant the restaurant boasts a magnificent beachfront location with views over the azure Indian Ocean, its own champagne bar, luxurious outdoor cabanas and an upstairs private dining and function space.

Open for lunch and dinner, guests are invited to choose either a chef-led degustation experience or from the extensive à la carte menus, while from 11am on Sundays the famous Astor Diamond Champagne Brunch is the main event.

The brunch opens in the Champagne Bar with Champagne, cocktails and canapés. Relax on the soft white sofas or at the bar for an hour of decadent pre-brunch drinks as the immaculately presented staff circulate tantalising nibbles and ensure you glass is always full.

On the stroke of noon, meander into the dining room where the white and golden-wood and Indonesian inspired artwork and the formally laid tables craft a perfect luxury setting for the indulgence that awaits.

The attention to culinary detail will impress and no dish more so then Nyegara Gunung, wagyu beef spare ribs marinated in a blend of archipelago spices, sous vide 24 hours and served with lobster tail tempura, seasonal vegetable and beef essence.
