“Great food. Great atmosphere. Great value!!”
We visited Ultimo last week as part of our 20th anniversary-celebration holiday. We asked for a table for 2 in the garden as it was such an occasion. We arrived early and our table wasn't ready. This wasn't a problem as we just took in a drink at the front bar -a buzzing place next to the open kitchen, (we'd actually had drinks here before and enjoyed the atmosphere of the place.) After 5 minutes we were shown to a great table in the rear garden close to the live band playing. The menu is extensive to say the least and will accommodate the fussiest of foodies. After nibbling various complimentary bread and grissini, my wife chose stuffed Portobello mushroom and I had a spaghetti marinara to start. Both were brought quickly and thoroughly enjoyed. We asked for a break between courses and this was no problem.
Mains were a steak in peppercorn sauce and the US style pork ribs. Again, 2 great dishes - the steak was a good size and served with a superb gratin. the ribs were among the best I've had and very meaty. we were then surprised with a complimentary Tiramisu with a Happy Anniversary message on it and the band even played us a song, (must admit this was the third place we booked and told them we were celebrating!!).
We lingered over a 2nd bottle of wine and enjoyed the live music. One of the really memorable nights and for all the food, 2 bottles of Chilean Sav Blanc, 2 cocktails and 2 beers the bill came to around $110. Probably the best value meal I had in Bali, given the quality food, surroundings, atmosphere and service.
I recommend you book as it does get busy and ask for a rear garden table, (but do take a bit of mozzie repellent along!)
Can't wait to go back again! Thanks Ultimo :-)
