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, Friday and Saturday.

“The best pasta in Indonesia like the real deal !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

A very interesting place run by some guys who are very serious about what they are doing. Sound service - interesting wine list - local style surroundings in a slightly disorganised way but it works and works well.
One little tip # wine with corks can deliver an unhappy experience and while I did not complain on the night # go screw caps. I normally would not eat Italian in Asia but on this occasion I did and I would do it again.

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

I had dinner last night at Kebun Zibiru with a bung of friends, and we were all very pleased. It's a hidden restaurant off the commercial Jl Oberoi. A more unique space that feels like old Bali. The rooftop was full so we opted for the garden, which was fantastic.

The food was delicious! It really tasted like we were in Italy. The owner recommended a mix of appetizers to share: the tuna tartare and carpaccio was to die for, but the fritturina exceeded our expectations. We even ordered seconds, and it arrived immediately. Impressive. So fast! But the real surprise were the main courses.

We had several dishes to share and all were incredibly tasty: ravioli, rabbit, barramundi, gnocchi and tagliatelle with lamb. The dishes were well-presented, delicious and just the right amount. The restaurant's atmosphere with its soft lights gives a warm and romantic glow, and the service is polite and discrete. We had a wonderful time; it felt like we were dining at a good friend's house. The eclectic mix of music that's sure to inject a bit of nostalgia was at just the right level, which enabled us to have a great conversation.

The bill was ridiculously cheap considering the quality and quantity of the food compared to more popular restaurants in Seminyak. We will be coming back to repeat this experience before we leave. Tip top!

“Great Italian food in a unique setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Quirky Italian restaurant in a really cool house, with dining spread across 3 levels. We sat on the rooftop around sunset, which was airy, breezy, and altogether very cool!

Food was very good. My anchovy and tomato linguine was lacking in anchovy flavour, but everything else - my tuna tartare, apple strudel, and my husband's beef carpaccio and snapper - was terrific. Reasonably priced, friendly if somewhat inattentive service. Our little girl (18 months) loved it too and scoffed down almost an entire serving of delicious homemade pasta pomodoro.

Highly recommend. Great for families with kids - but would be equally good for couples or groups of adults.
