Santanera serves Latin American and European delicacies with tapas as its main focus. The menu is created by the dynamic duo chefs Andres Becerra and German Rincon and is dominated by smoked, whipped, marinated, and chargrilled dishes from the land and sea. The three-story restaurant is completed with an ocean view rooftop, basement cellar, and deli.

Bai Yun

The new restaurant at The Apurva Kempinski Bali in Nusa Dua is eyeing to become the place to have a spectacular Chinese hot pot experience. The name of the restaurant is borrowed from Chinese-Mandarin which means “white cloud.” Here guests can opt for chicken herbal broth, pork ribs, and vegetarian hot pot. There is also an all-you-can-eat dim sum feast with 31 different types of artisanal dim sum available every day for those who aren’t into hot pot.

Reside in a colonial-style building in the Berawa neighborhood, KONG is an elegant restaurant and bar developed by Chef Kim Jonsson, a Michelin-starred chef who previously worked at 28+, an award-winning restaurant in Gothenburg. The menu consists of a wide range of a la carte dishes inspired by European cuisines with international twists. KONG also offers an extensive collection of wines and classic cocktails. 


Jl. Pantai Berawa No.14, Canggu, Bali.


This eclectic bar is a drinking space that intentionally adopts the culture and atmosphere of neighborhood bars found across Japan. With only 12 seat capacity, the bar menu highlights natural wines, with Sophia Burger, Noma’s ex-head barista serves as its wine curator. Besides wines, Souvenir also provides cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages. The bar snacks, curated by Dhanu, Melbourne-trained chef of FED by Made.

Mosto is a bistro and wine bar that highlights European dishes (mainly Italian) on the menu. As the brainchild of collective people behind Lazarus Pulp Project—the producer “The Alter Ego”, Indonesia’s first pétillant naturel wine. Wine curation at Mosto is very impressive with Nicolas Lento serving as the Sommelier. There are more than 70 labels from small producers around the world, including some organic and/or biodynamic wines. Meanwhile, Denny Bakiev as the mixologist has created cocktail selections with a nod to the classics with experimental twists and a zero-waste ethos. For hungry patrons, there is an all-day menu consisting of snacks and small plates created by Executive Chef Lorenzo Depeteris.


Jl. Pantai Berawa No.99, Canggu, Bali.

Naga Eight

Naga Eight is an exciting new addition to the neighborhood of Sanur. With not many Cantonese restaurants around in Bali, let alone Sanur, Naga Eight brings a new exciting concept for food lovers. Combining impressive architecture and interior design with the finest selection of Cantonese barbeque and wok cuisine, Naga Eight is the place for a quick fix on Chinese cuisine craving. Naga Eight’s signature dishes include roast duck, crispy samcan, and more.


Jl. Danau Tamblingan No.89, Sanur, Bali.

Akar Restaurant & Bar

As its name implies, Akar Restaurant & Bar in Ubud highlights everything natural. The foods here are created using fresh, organic ingredients from local farms and processed with authentic techniques. Some of their signature dishes are Australian beef strip loin, seared Jimbaran fillet barramundi, and more. Another interesting point from Akar Restaurant & Bar is its design. However, though sharing the same name, Akar Restaurant & Bar Bali is not associated with Akar Restaurant & Bar Jakarta.


Jl. Raya Cebok, Kedisan, Gianyar.

The Lawn

The Lawn is not a new name in Bali’s culinary map. The beach club in Canggu has been known as a go-to place for many tourists. Sitting on top of Bali’s most notable longboard wave, right in the heart of Canggu Beach, the Lawn has been known by locals as the one place to catch up, relax and celebrate for the better part of the last decade. However, during the pandemic, The Lawn has done some revamp and in 2020, they appointed a new Head of Culinary, Vallian Gunawan and Danial Gerves as the Head of Mixology.
