Forget the beaches and go up to the mountains of Kintamani for a delicious "farmer's lunch" at Danu Art Cafe. Each item I had was delectable and had just the right amount of spice.

If you're in Kintamani you mustn't miss lunch at Danu Art Lounge within the Lakeview Eco Lodge. They serve a delicious farmer's lunch with ingredients freshly picked from their garden and delicately spiced. The views Mt. Batur and the lake are spectacular.

Danu Art Cafe is the smaller restaurant of Lakeview Eco Lodge. Like the larger one, it has the most incredible views of Mount Batur and the Crater Lake, but it's much more peaceful and perfect if you are not in a big group. We had a family-style dinner there twice, a mixture of local specialities (the lake fish sautéed with... More
