The real Indonesian food experience

THE WARUNG at Alila Villas Uluwatu has consistently delighted diners with its wholesome authentic Indonesian cuisine, served alongside stunning clifftop views across the Indian Ocean.

Foodies will be delighted to know that at THE WARUNG remains a celebration of the best of Indonesia, each dish offering a journey into the region’s rich variety of exotic flavours, exquisitely crafted to satisfy the most discerning palates.

The restaurant is positioned as a culinary playground where local and international chefs who share a passion for Indonesian cuisine converge. Through its Chef-in- Residence programme, THE WARUNG welcomes guest chefs renowned for their mastery of Indonesian cuisine to share their knowledge with its culinary team, imparting the culinary traditions unique to different regions of the archipelago, as well as creating exclusive dining experiences.

The new dishes include Ayam Betutu, a typical Balinese dish of chicken stuffed with herbs and cassava leaves, wrapped in banana leaf and slow-steamed for three hours till tender; Nasi Liwet, a succulent rice dish from Solo, Central Java, cooked in coconut milk and spices, and served with chicken curry and Javanese sambal; and Babi Panggang, pork ribs slow-cooked with spices, then grilled on coconut husks – a must for barbecue lovers.

At THE WARUNG, it’s not just the food that rocks, but the ambience too. The restaurant offers a stylish yet casually relaxed affair, where diners can enjoy sharing-size portions and social interaction at communal tables, enlivened by the culinary theatre of an open kitchen. Private tables are also available for those seeking a more intimate dining experience. Alternatively, couples can share a romantic dinner in one of the private cabanas with panoramic ocean views, choosing from a special set menu for two or a menu personally tailored in consultation with the chef.

Accompanying THE WARUNG’S new food menu is a revved up range of beverages, as well as signature cocktails made from Indonesian ingredients served every day during sunset hours at the Boat Bar at the Sunset Cabana. Indeed, the resort’s iconic design and casually sophisticated spaces, which spill from THE WARUNG’S stylish interiors to the iconic cliff-edge Sunset Cabana, make this an altogether hip place to meet, eat and hang out.
