Description: Paon Doeloe is the main restaurant at Taman Bhagawan, with a name inspired by the traditional kitchen, which serves as the heart and soul of every Indonesian household. This unpretentious beachfront restaurant takes form in an authentic Javanese Joglo house with an infinity swimming pool that enjoys views of Tanjung Benoa Beach and Mount Agung. The Joglo structure features a high pyramid-like roof, constructed to resemble a mountain, which is supported by four main wooden support columns known as saka guru. Elegant colonial-style table settings and comfortable sofas with batik cushions for an indigenous dining experience have become the trademark of this Bali's most unique dining spot. For a more intimate experience, enjoy a picnic-style dining experience with rustic bamboo mats and colourful cushions which are available across the lawn under the canopy of trees while enjoying the enchanting Javanese songs and the gentle breeze of the ocean and the magnificent backdrop of the majestic Mount Agung. Within only 30 minutes from Bali's international airport and nestled within the manicured grounds of Taman Bhagawan, Paon Doeloe is open daily for lunch and dinner from 10am to 10pm, and is Bali's leading tropical lifestyle facility for leisurely hours to soak up the sun and sophisticated evenings enhanced by Indonesian and Asian fusion favourites. To augment the dining experience, this semi open-air venue has spaces adorned with various traditional ornaments such as Javanese statues, vases, and other art pieces from across Indonesia. Vintage decor such as old becak rickshaws and andong horse carts are found in certain spaces inside and out. The ethnic concept extends to the cuisine. Local and regional cuisine colour the menu at Paon Doeloe. It serves as a great place for those looking forward to trying out exotic flavours during their Bali holiday, and is also the go-to spot to indulge in the ultimate Balinese, Indonesian and Southeast Asian all-day dining experience with friends and family. The variety of cuisine is available ala carte, with several set menu options available for lunch and dinner. Diners can opt for the cosy indoors or go alfresco under subtly lit lanterns hanging from trees with spectacular ocean views and gentle sea breezes - perfect for romantic beachfront dinners. Romantic packages complete the experience.

“Wish we'd discovered this gem sooner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Beautiful building in magical setting with the garden all lit up at night enhanced the great meal. Looks like it would cost a packet but it was sooo inexpensive. Loved the lemon, ginger and soda drink, fried Vietnamese spring rolls were authentic with a delicious crispy outside, pork spare ribs were fabulous and we finished with decadent chocolate brownie with strawberries and cream. Yum!!

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

With a closed traditional gate entrance, I couldn't imagine could find such a nice place. The food is quite tasty at reasonable price, the staffs are very friendly and nice.

Dear Zaviae,

Thank you for your positive feedback and for sharing your experience during you visit to Paon.

We are in the midst of revamping our restaurant menu to serve authentic Indonesian flavours and dishes. The pool snacks will be more finger food oriented. All will be launched in September...

So do pop back in when you are in Bali next and sample the new menu.

Thank you!

Best Regards,
Asta

“A wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is a "must place" to visit! It's so easy to relax, and the food is really super. The staff are friendly and efficient, but the place itself is a great find. The buildings, furnishings and right on the beach with a super pool. Wow!
