We visited The Pearl Restaurant in March 2014 and it was just delightful. It's not the easiest restaurant to find, but it's well worth the search.
I visited with friends and we were seated in the garden. Our waiter was lovely and made us feel right at home. He gave us cool wash cloths (always a nice touch in such a humid environment) and left bug repellant on our table.
Chef Jeremy Blanchet (possibly the most handsome man in Bali!) greeted us and asked if we had any questions about the menu, which was a lovely touch.
There were complimentary starters of the most amazing pureed eggplant in a tuile cone and a delectable cold curry pumpkin and coconut soup. We knew at this point to expect some truly delicious food.
I ordered the lobster ravioli (which was to die for) and my friends ordered the lamb shanks, which were equally delicious. We all completed our meals with the dessert tasting plate, which consisted of pannacotta, chocolate fondant, creme brulee and the lightest, most airy chocolate mousse I have ever tried. The dishes were beautifully presented and each meal was faultless.
Meals were expensive by Bali standards, but ridiculously inexpensive by Australian standards. Main meal, dessert and drinks cost around $AUD40. I would expect to pay triple this price for food of this standard in Australia.
Thank you for a wonderful evening, Jeremy and team. I'm sure we'll be back!
