The Ju-Ma-Na restaurant was my favourite starting with the building itself being something so elite. The views from the restaurant were magnificent capturing a perfect view of the sea. The inside is just as beautiful and the staff deliver spectacular service. The chef Imam Fayumi is the best chef I've ever met. So welcoming and appreciative. He came out to talk to us and other customers asking us how we've found our holiday and giving engaging conversation. He made me feel so welcome and happy being there and I would definitely 100% visit again. The food was perfectly presented, chef Imams' passion for cooking showed in his delicious food. The menus were filled with different varieties of tasty food and cocktails. The waiters and waitresses delivered hospitality to a high standard especially Majid and Deddy who were very friendly waiters who served us and their service was perfect. Staff really respect their customers which made me visit a second time during my holiday.

Thank Imahn R

We’ve been considered as one of Asia’s Finest Restaurants. This would not have been possible without the dedicated chefs and associates of Jumana.

OMG, the ultimate fine dining experience from the moment you arrive to when you leave. Starting with a buggy ride through the amazing gardens of the resort to the restaurant, then been greeted by extremely friendly staff. To walk in to panoramic ocean views as we where taken up to the outside bar for predinner drinks. As we were sipping on the best caprioska ever you appreciate the truely amazing view as you are perched right on the edge of a cliff overlooking the beautiful sunset and ocean. Then we where escorted to our table to experience not only the best food but amazing service. The presentation of the food was excellent. The whole experience you could not fault, a very memorable night. The most romantic setting for any occasion. Thank you Ju Ma Na for a truly amazing evening, the drive over from Seminyak was totally worth it.

This restaurant really does go the extra mile to make you feel special.
The food was faultless, the amuse bouche were a joy and the food was delivered to our table with impeccable timing without feeling rushed or being left to hang around. Staff were incredibly attentive.. Lots of little unexpected extras between courses, which all adds to the sense of fun. House wine delicious and inexpensive, which was rather a pleasant surprise bearing in mind the venue.
The whole experience was relaxing, friendly, highly enjoyable and gastronomically superb.
They also send us a personal email the day after our dinner to thanks us for visiting them!
Having eaten at several (more expensive) Michelin starred restaurants I would say Jumana stands out for many reasons, and you really should try it: you won't be disappointed.

Dear Mia C,
Greetings from Ju-Ma-Na!

Thank you very much for your kind words. We are thrilled that you have enjoyed your dinner with us. Kindly rest assured that all your kind feedback will be passed along to our Chefs and associates.

There is hardly anything sweeter than a compliment for a job well done.

In celebration of the full moon on Friday 29 March, you can experience a magical evening of delights. Dine al fresco and bathe in glittering moonlight, meanwhile enjoying a sumptuous six course menu. During the dinner, entertainment will be provided by “Vagabond” the Pop Jazz Band.

We will continue on that path and we look forward to welcoming you back to Ju-Ma-Na in the future.

Egyptian for pearl JU-MA-NA sits at cliffs edge with panoramic views over the ocean which are only interrupted by spectacular sunsets and the onset of evening.
Our experience was exceptional – The “meet and greet” was professional friendly and genuine
The restaurant is a cutting edge contemporary space and seating is arranged around an open kitchen
Banquet style sofas and crossbow parson’s chairs crisp white linen designer stemware fine china and a serious of window settings make this an intimate and elegant space for a romantic dinner or a comfortable arrangement for a group
The team of professionals has been carefully selected and is under the watch eye of Nicolas Belzic Director of Food and Beverage and world’s best practice is the order of the day
Little surprises happen like the hand washing ceremony with cold towels a ritual that delighted and reminded us we were in one of the world’s finest resorts.
We chose the 6 course degustation menu as it best exemplified the restaurants take on food ‘Gourmet French with a Japanese influence
Chef Iman Fayumi interacts with the guests and stays very flexible providing a party of two a menu of dishes designed especial for them – imagine that.
Our Menu –
Five spice soft shell Crab- hearts of palm, nasturtium coriander aioli, Kaffir lime leaf dressing
Lobster Cappuccino - lobster essence, milk froth rouille cruton in the shape of a mini baguette with the consistence of brioche.
Black Miso Cod and seared Tiger prawn
Wagyu Beef – grilled No 9 wagyu in a strip loin – potato mousseline glased roots of vegatables in a red wine reduction
Valrhone soft chocolate cake with rassberry,croustillant ,salt grey de Bretagne and then the best soufflé I have ever had - worthy of Paul Bocuse’
All this for IDR 980++ approx USA $98
Wine was an easy selection from a comprehensive wine list but lacked the guidance of an experience sommelier which would have taken this restaurant to Michelin standard.
Banyan Tree Resorts signature restaurant is a must visit if you are in to fine dining. Hope you love this as much as we did.

Great place for drinks for sunset and brilliant dinner. Love the place! Everyone should be here from 6pm onwards with a cocktail and enjoy the breeze, sunset and sound of the waves.
