Bali is recognized as one of the most romantic places on earth, so when a special occasion comes around, there is no shortage of beautiful places to celebrate.

Bali romantic restaurant#1 Room4Dessert.

If chocolate is the food of love then Room4Dessert speaks the language fluently. The softly-lit interior with it’s atmospheric long bar and soundtrack of blues tracks played on a turntable, is the ultimate in romance for those who like to play it sweet.

Owner/chef Will Godfarb brings a New York state of mind to haute couture desserts and some of the best cocktails on the island. If something more savoury is required, the Spanish wine garden at the back makes for a fine place to start or finish.

The Savage Kitchen – Bali restaurant review

in Dining by
savage kitchen berawa bali restaurant and bar

Located in Berawa, bridging the gap between the cool Seminyak scene and the hip hangouts in Canggu, Savage Kitchen has the chance to play by their own rules.

By day, Savage is a health-driven café. From breakfast through to dinner, fans of The Savage Kitchen love their anything goes approach. Build your own meals with a list of basic ingredients that can then be piled high with all the things you love.

At night, the air-conditioned space at the back opens up as a neighborhood bar and restaurant that is as much of a hang out as it is a restaurant. The food here plays with more grown up concepts and is morphing into a seriously delicious destination that ticks a lot of boxes for food lovers.

When the crew from The Savage Kitchen were changing things up a little in the back, they added a great long bar and lounge to make the nights in Berawa a little less lonely, with the addition of a great neighborhood hangout.

Sharing is a popular concept here and the dining room is divided into softly lit tables for two or four. On the opposite side of the dining room large sharing tables are where friends and family can sit down to a whole roasted rib of beef, a leg of lamb, a roasted chicken or a fragrant, whole baked Barramundi

The trimmings are laid on for a family-style feast, to pass around, share and enjoy together. This is the beauty of Savage Kitchen; you really can design your own meal and create your own experience.

The Savage BistronomyAll day dining.

From early morning breakfasts feature smoothie bowls and granola with fresh fruit, to full tilt omelettes, smashed avocado plates piled high with roasted tomatoes and poached eggs, to pancakes or slabs of home-made sourdough toast with wild preserves. They got this one covered and the coffee, needless to say, stars!

Lunch is big, from salad bowls to sandwiches, burgers or vegetarian plates piled high with colour, couscous salad or wild rice, pastas and more. Add a little cheese, chicken, pile up some roasted beef or keep it clean and vegan. It’s all about getting what you want. And with an all-day menu, you can rock up anytime.
