More than just a beautiful beachside restaurant with breathtaking sunset views, Ku De Ta is a local Balinese institution overlooking the beach. With both indoor and outdoor tables, a beachside freshwater shower, a cigar menu with coveted Cubans, a dipping pool, grassy terraces and pavilions, rooftop lounge, and three bars, choose from La Luciola’s daytime grazing menu of small tapas-style fish (sushi, sashimi) and exotic Australian fare (with noticeable Thai and Vietnamese influences). The dinner menu offers treats such as baby lobster risotto with braised fennel, sugar snap peas, confit garlic, chili and lemon. As one of the most popular places in Bali for pre- and post dinner drinks, don’t miss their light and refreshing nightfall martini with vodka, muddled with fresh raspberries, crème de cassis and pinot noir. A lengthy selection of international wines, reputed to be among the best in Bali, follows an impressive list of cocktails and digestifs. DJs are invited at night to mix things up and turn the patios into more festive settings. Spending an afternoon or an evening at Ku De Ta will definitely ensure you’re in a fun and relaxed holiday mood.
