Starters at Kayuputi Restaurant

Kayuputi Restaurant presents a rich array of dishes through a la carte and degustation menus, as well as Sunday brunches and special champagne brunches. Each item integrates Asian flavours with classic western influences. Fine examples of this marriage of flavours and textures include fresh marinated, quick-seared yellowfin tuna, served with sweet-sour tamarind and tuna broth – a luscious sauce inspired by the island’s heritage rujak dressing that is sweet, tangy and truly appetising.

Other entrées include a Caesar salad of young romaine lettuce tossed with garlic anchovy dressing, grilled king prawns and topped with toasted French bread and crisp garlic parmesan tuiles. There’s also a dish comprising a selection from the ocean, prepared as sashimi, consisting of Tasmanian salmon, yellowfin tuna, cold poached sweet sea prawns and fresh oysters served with pickled ginger, wasabi and light shoyu.

Main courses at Kayuputi Restaurant

On to the mains, the medium-rare Black Angus beef tenderloin served with butter glazed mushroom and potato, garden salad and red wine meat jus is a delightful and juicily tender treat. There are some great vegetarian dishes available, too. The gracious wait staff know their menu well and deliver swift, attentive but unpretentious service.

The Bali lobster at Kayuputi Restaurant is plated and presented in an impressive fashion: the bright red crustacean is served as a whole, split into halves to reveal its moist and tender meat and fillings of garlic butter and sautéed garden veggies. It comes with 4 dipping sauces on a side plate.

Desserts at Kayuputi Restaurant

Desserts are heavenly at Kayuputi Restaurant at The St. Regis Bali Resort. Warm crispy apple tart topped with Papua vanilla ice cream provides a delightful play of contrasts, and the ice cream slowly melting on the warm tart is a visual treat on its own. The mango coconut cake served with a unique coconut milk sherbet and mango coulis is a brighter presentation compared to the tart and brings a lighter, fruitier sensation to the palate. A classic Valrhona choco gateaux bring it down heavier again, served with chocolate ice cream and chocolate coulis.

The award-winning restaurant presents a stellar wine list to complement the luxurious multi-course degustation menus, especially with the sommelier’s hand-selected wines. Just ask and they’ll help you to pick the perfect complement for your dish.
