Whilst a four-course lunch menu will be offered Friday to Sunday (12-14 & 19-21 November).
Helmed by Nic Vanderbeeken as the Executive Chef, Apéritif Restaurant & Bar brings eclectic global cuisine to the table. With over 20 years experience of working at various Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe—including consulting and developing the bistronomy concept he pioneered as Chef-Owner of Bistro Biggles in Belgium, Chef Vanderbeeken and his team are ready to bring the best of modern global cuisine in an eclectic style to Jakarta patrons with signature dishes such as Venison Wellington with foie gras and truffle and Opu Fish served with seaweed, smoked dashi, miso glaze, and broccoli. Combining the highest quality ingredients from the restaurant’s greenhouse, the island of Bali and the world, Apéritif presents the best of contemporary global cuisine touching on the archipelago’s diverse culinary heritage and ingredients. To bring up the local element, all of the dishes are served on one-of-a-kind tableware designed by Italian ceramicist Marcello and his wife Michela from Gaya Ceramics in Ubud.
To ensure an exceptional experience, Chef Vanderbeeken is joined by Maxie Millian, a successful Indonesian chef, as Head Chef and I Made Yudhi as Restaurant Manager and Head Sommelier. Apéritif has the most exclusive wine cellar on the island with the rarest brands in stock and Yudhi is ready to help guests choose the best wine for each dish from over 400 different labels on offer. For the pre-dinner event, guests can also enjoy a selection of cocktails from the bar. The cocktails on the menu were inspired by the 1930’s golden era and specially created with Bali’s tropical climate in mind whilst showcasing the best artisanal spirits and in-house infusions.
