Bumbu Bali, Restaurant & Cooking School
The extravagant beauty and delights of Bali extends to its very difficult to find cuisine. We are delighted to serve you “only” authentic Balinese cuisine in a traditional crafted village setting. Two decades investigating and documenting Balinese cuisine are the foundation in the style of cooking served in our restaurants. To further enhance the quality of our dishes we spend daily hours at the local markets to source the ripest fruits, garden-freshest vegetables, and fish that is caught the same morning. This together with our highly trained service and kitchen team will ensure a most memorable dining experience.
Bali’s best place to discover Balinese food culture
Since opening Bumbu Bali, Restaurant & Cooking School in 1997 we have been awarded numerous times as one of the leading restaurants in Bali. Strangely enough after 15 years we are still the only authentic Balinese restaurant on the island. Unfortunately in Bali’s mythic culture eating is very much a solitary affair, and locals mostly just eat to fill their bellies. Then the fact that Indonesia in the past did not manufacture ceramic prevented people from serving food as the Chinese did for millenniums. We take incredible pride in presenting to you Bali’s food culture in its original authentic way. The only alterations we do is in the presentation, as we take only the finest ceramics the island’s artisans produce.
