Description: Since opening its doors in August of 2012, Zibiru has garnered a loyal following with its regional Italian cuisine made from fresh ingredients. The restaurant has something for everyone, from food enthusiasts to wine lovers: During the day a gastronomic deli, offering sandwiches with premium Italian products as well as vegan and vegetarian choices. 5 to 7pm is Aperitivo time with wine tasting and a chance to sample complementary bites from the kitchen. Come at night to listen to soul music and jazz, an ideal soundtrack for friends catching up or for couples seeking intimate conversation amid a romantic setting. We offer a feast for all five senses, providing a little refuge from the noise and liveliness of Seminyak. Adorned with authentic details exuding old Bali charm, Zibiru revives the romance of the past with its whitewashed facade, hand-carved wooden interiors and handmade furnishings. We offer three different dining experiences: al fresco in the garden amidst lush tropical flora; under the stars of the rooftop lounge; or in the haven of its non-smoking interior. The menu showcases the best offerings from the field; market-fresh fish arrives daily, bread is homemade on site, and pasta is handcrafted from scratch. Organic heirloom vegetables are harvested from Zibiru's own environmentally friendly farm in the mountains of Bali. Zibiru offers a chance to taste the splendor of Italy's various regions all under one roof. Live jazz every Wednesday and Saturday.

“Authentic Italian in Seminyak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Fabulous meal eaten on the rooftop with a very pleasant breeze. The owner is extremely friendly (not always the case in Bali) and the food absolutely delicious. The pasta had an amazing flavour of anchovies and all the entrees which we shared were great. It was my first time there but will certainly not be my last. A great find!!

“Real italo-psychedelic experience in Bali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

We found this restaraunt through tripadvisor and I don't regret the choice. I have been to Italy several times and I can assure you that it's like a plate teleported directly from an authentic italian kitchen topped with "real olive oil" in a pyschadelic environment!

“Fantastic little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We went to Kebun after reading a review on trip advisor. It's off the hustle and bustle of the main drag in seminyak which we liked. The owner recommended a Rigatoni salmon pasta that was really good but the pick was the gnocchi norcina. The food was fresh and very tasty. Service was excellent and very friendly. The food is very reasonably priced.

We had eaten earlier in our stay at Ultimo where the food was nice but Kebun is way better.

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I've been looking for a restaurant that does great home style Italian in Bali for a while now and was happily surprised to find that it was right under my nose the whole time. We had a lovely meal on the roof top in a beautiful setting. Will be back for sure.

“Delicious italian food in Bali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

While staying in Bali, we have been lucky to find this amazing restaurant. The food was delicious and the owner extremely friendly.
He arranged for us to get a special sparkling wine for my mother's birthday.
The rooftop is a hidden gem with a unique atmosphere.
I would definitely go back to this place if I go back to Seminyak!
