Welcome to Ubud. We hope that Bali Pesto will be your restaurant of
choice while you are in Ubud. We are located in the center of the
tourist area, easily accessible from Monkey Forest Road.
Guide books and many of our guests have commented upon the quality of
of our pizza and pasta but they have also noted favorably on the
quality of our Balinese and European dishes. Many like what appears to be a subtle fusion of both cuisines.
The traditional Balinese village lives in Ubud at Bali Pesto in form of
our decor: the antique dining tables, the sofas, a old Japanese dining
table, woodcarvings from our family collection and historic photos of
Bali from 1952. Not only that, the outside garden setting is atmospheric and very popular with our guests. All of these touches you will not see until you walk in, relax and enjoy the food.
Start with a favorite Balinese soup,"Sop Ikan Kedonganan"--a hot and sour seafood soup spiced with prawns,calamari, snapper, chili, tomato and mushrooms. Our "Lumpia Ayam" is a tasty, crispy chicken spring roll filled with glass noodles, vegetables and sweet garlic (yes, there is a sweet garlic!).
Our "Pumpkin Soup", flavored with ginger, lemongrass and coconut milk has made many guests return for the experience. Maybe it is our secret ingredient in the soup that has created so many fans of that soup.
One of our main courses, "Beef Scallops"--pan fried beef scallops with
garlic, roasted potatoes and rucolla
To taste truly wonderful food in Bali, turn to Bali Pesto. Our "Tuna
Steak", pan-fried tuna steak with mashed garlic, tomato confit, chili
and ginger source will convince you that you made the right choice.
Bali Pesto is famous for its pizzas--thin, crispy and 30cm in diameter.
A surprise for you: "Balinese Pizza"--spicy, with chicken, beef,
sambal matah, tomato sauce, onion and mozzarella. Our "Pizza Quattro
Stagioni" (Four Seasons) with ham, mushrooms, capers, olives, tomatoes,
mozzarella and tomato sauce is a hit with out international clientele.
The range and quality of our fresh seafood meant for grilling,
barbecuing or frying make a for a dining experience worth lingering over.
Think of "Pepes Ikan" Balinese Style--grilled, mixed seafood cooked in banana tree leaves, flavored with delicious Balinese spices. Think of"Tuna Kebabs"--grilled tuna skewers with peppers and Balinese spices. And,all BBQ dishes are served with mashed or French fried potatoes or rice and wok-fried water spinach and an assortment of sambal.
After a delicious repast, try something sweet such as our "Mixed Fruit
Tart--a marinated fresh fruit on a thing pastry crust, sweet nut paste
and vanilla ice cream. Once you have tried this, heaven can wait.
