“Exquisite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. The setting is spectacular overlooking the beach and ocean. It is upscale without being stuffy. The staff are amazing being welcoming to our family with two children and attentive. The ambience is of an elegant beach house.
The chef Agung Gede is talented. He devised a vegetarian degustation menu for us which was balanced, delicate and delicious. The deserts were amazing with highlights being the Passion fruit souffle, the desert with Kimangi and the chocolate desert. The spinach and ricotta tortelloni was melt in your mouth.The children also felt special as they also got amuse -bouches!
Sitting outside for lunch on the table surrounded by water overlooking the ocean was truly special.

“Astor Sunday Brunch - Must do in Bali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The Astor Diamond Champagne Sunday Brunch is in itself a reason to go to Bali.

The choices are vast, the quality is superb. From caviar to foie gras, wagyu to lobster, tiramisu to souffle - this has it all. Everything is freshly made so it feels restaurant quality and not buffet like. But like a buffet you can keep ordering till your hearts content. Oh and don't worry, things will be served to your table too.

Its AUD$100/head, but there is NO way you will get this quality of food for that price in Australia. Think degustation done to the extreme.

DO NOT eat breakfast prior to going. It starts at 11am with champagne and canapes. And by 3.30pm you won't be able to move from your seat. Remember to start thinking about your desert choices by about 2.30pm.

Service is top notch (that day it was 80-90% full). Decor is white and high class (excellent cutlery and very clean). No need to sit outside unless you want to.

One small criticism its it can get quite warm on a hot day. St Regis - fix the aircon!!! - but don't let this deter you. If you are a foodie do this - you won't regret it.

See my pictures (or don't see my pictures if you want to be pleasantly surprised).

“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Kayuputi is undoubtedly the best restaurant in Nusa Dua, I would rate it with some of the best restaurant in the world. My wife and I have travelled extensively and certainly know what to expect when it comes to a find dinning establishment.

My family and I reserved a cabana table with a nice view facing the Indian Ocean. Everything regarding this restaurant is first class – the food is amazing. The chefs have certainly brought the best produce locally and from around the world to assemble a menu that would tempt the fussiest customer. The wine list is very extensive you can certainly choose your favourite wine or arrange the sommelier to recommend one. I would certainly recommend dinning, here you’ll be amazed.

Kayuputi - a dinning experience to remember.

“Excellent and amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Im surprised to read about portion sizes bring small and the venue getting anything less than 4/5 stars. We booked this place for our last meal on honeymoon in Bali and loved it. We sat outside overlooking the sea, it was just stunning. We both eat out a lot in London and this up there with the best. Portion sizes are not small. You have to be total greedy guts or someone who doesn't eat out much in great places to think sizes could be bigger. I thoroughly enjoyed the ricotto/spinach starter. My husband's octopus starter he said was a little over done. The Australian milk fed lamb rack was sublime. Perfectly cooked. We sat back and just relaxed tonight. Beautiful place, great service and lovely amuse bouche. Definitely one of my face meals. Try the carrot and lime cake too. 3 glasses of Riesling, 1 cocktail, 2 amarettos, 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 puddings came to £176

“Not what I hoped it would be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The restaurant is definitely nice and in a gorgeous setting, however the food is lacking...especially portion sizes. The menu labels everything as "Entree" so what the heck is the appetizer? I ordered the scallops and was questioned if I wanted something else because the waiter's look of uncertainty made me think the portion was small. And it was. The scallops - two scallops - cost roughly $21.00 USD. The starter I chose was the Wagyu carpaccio, which was ok...kind of plain since it wasn't seasoned. The hot and cold experience lacked as well. Never saw the sommelier and had a hard time ordering a Martini because they didn't seem to know what a "dry martini" was. Not what I expected. Then again, I am a foodie and have eaten at some of the best restaurants and this just can't compare.
