When it comes to a romantic dinner that’s different from the typical restaurant dine-ins that you’ve been doing with your loved one, a sunset date by the beach is an affair that’s worth considering!
So if by any chance you’re in Bali, Indonesia for your couples vacation or honeymoon, head over to Kuta at Ma Joly to enjoy an enchanted fine dining that not only offers a scrumptious 6-course dinner under a beautiful tent, but also offers a magnificent view of the Indian Ocean and a beautiful sunset that will be etched to both of your memories forever.
Jonas and I took up the chance to try this romantic setting and it was an experience that we will never forget!
Romantic Dinner at Kuta
This romantic dinner package offers a free pick-up service — a really great inclusion since it took away the hassle of finding a taxi during such a peak hour. By the time that we reached the venue, I kid you not: we were blown away by the glorious scene before us as we got our first glimpse of the tents by the beach!
*In the middle is a designed section that’s originally intended for wedding events, but it could also be a dining spot other than the tents.
We were quickly ushered to our seats and in a couple of minutes, our personal waiter introduced himself to us as he presented a paper that showed the details of our 6-course dinner. This could change depending on the season and availability, but customarily, their romantic dinner menu would look like this:
Pistachio-Salmon Terrine (cucumber salsa, mango emulsion, scallion cream cheese, caviar)
Thick Lobster Bisque (seafood ravioli, tomato confit and fresh herb dill)
Creamy Pumpkin Soup (with shitake mushroom tortellini, crumbled feta cheese)
THIRD COURSE (FISH)
Poached Prawn with Fresh Tarragon (potato-coriander mayo, jackfruit relish, seaweed with sesame seed dressing)
Duck Confit (baby beetroot, pomelo, cherry tomato, toasted walnut, black olive, organic baby mesclun salad, honey-orange dressing)
FOURTH COURSE (SORBET)
FIFTH COURSE (MAIN)
Seared Beef Tenderloin (mousseline sweet potato, balsamic warm baby vegetables, rosemary flavored beef jus)
Crispy Skin Red Snapper Fillet (green pea puree, angel hair vegetables, mussel-pepper fricassee)
Tiramisu (espresso, mascarpone cream, java coffee ice cream)
Mango Fruit Tart (raspberry coulis, strawberry ice cream, sweet lime skin)
Java Highland Tea
While we were enjoying our dinner, we were also enjoying the breathtaking view before us as the sun slowly melted down the horizon…
…it was all so perfect.
