BIKUClassic • Lunch

Biku is located in a joglo, a traditional Javanese house, made of teakwood and with a steeped roof. The setting is matched by the excellent traditional dishes, like homemade beef redang, a spicy curry. Jl Petitenget No.888 Seminyak, Bali

Raya Kedewatan, Banjar, Kedewatan, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar

MERAH PUTIH Relaxed But Refined • Dinner

Housed in a cathedral-like space that looks like it was plucked out of a design magazine, this elegant restaurant in Seminyak has become one of Bali’s most innovative eateries. The menu is divided into traditional and modern, a showcase of classic and more experimental dishes that provide a single sitting education in Indonesian cuisine. Jl. Petitenget No.100X, Kerobokan Kelod, Kec. Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung
