Innovative takes on French cuisine incorporating freshly picked Balinese ingredients have already brought a world of recognition to Executive Chef Frederic Boulay. Open lunch and dinner, this expansive beachfront establishment comprises a refined indoor dining room with dramatic decor plus the open-air sky deck. Both confer palm fringed Indian Ocean views and accept reservations from hotel guests as well as outside diners. Reserve a private Kul Kul room for intimate gatherings among friends overlooking the Indian Ocean, or takeover the VIP lounge to party into the tropical night.

Beautiful location, great service. Had fantastic 5 tapas set for about $20. Cocktails beautiful but very expensive at $40 for two. Still worthy of a visit as the food really is first class.

We stayed at the Chedi and thought whilst there we had to try Sakala. We ate there once and found the meal to be nice enough and the presentation fine (see pics). I would recommend going to Sakala for the experience and the food of course (although the food was a bit heavy). Probably deserves the #1 rated on TA... More

We discovered the Sakala restaurant close to our resort and were very pleasantly surprised by the whole dining experience. We went there for lunch and went back again for dinner one night. Great quality food each meal (with different menus for lunch and dinner) and the service and outlook were fantastic. Will definitely return if in the area again.
