Alilla Villa's fine dining restaurant!
We were staying at this beautiful hotel &, as it was Christmas Day & having seen the glowing reviews, we decided to eat here that evening. Quilia for some reason, seems to the under promoted. I only discovered the hotel had a fine dining option by accident. Having sampled the food here, that is a real error. The restaurant has only 5 tables, so I would recommend a reservation, although we were the only diners on that night. Maybe it was a'one off', but the restaurant did lack atmosphere. Our tasting menu was personalised, which was a great touch on arrival and service through out was friendly and fun, but with the quality you would expect from a fine dining establishment. We then sat back and enjoyed ten courses of delicious, well presented plates. Some delivered with a story, some with pure theatre and all with a big smile. I won't go into detail of the dishes, as I think the element of surprise is important, but what I will say, is the quality of the cookery was up there with Michelin starred establishments at times. If you have an open mind and palate, you will be very happy. The accompanying wine flights, were all ok, but not a patch on the food. I'm not sure if this is down to availability in Bali or if wine isn't a priority, but if possible, I would look to work on that. The overall meal was very good indeed & I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. I've eaten far worse food in restaurants with Michelin stars, so there is a very talented chef here! With a full dining room & some work on the wine, this place could be very special indeed.

Extraordinary - a real foodie’s delight!
From the moment we stepped into the charming environment of Quila we knew we were in for a great night. The degustation menu which was based around the five senses delivered on so many counts. The service was just a delight - our dinner facilitator was just so knowledgeable and introduced each course with pride and in some cases humour! The flavours were at times unpredictable, brave, surprising but always delightful to the palette. All in all a stunning experience that should be a must for all serious foodies!

An Amazing Night of Dinning
We had a great dinner here. The food was interesting and imaginative. We had two the dishes before during a tour so they gave us two new ones with were phenomenal. There are only 5 tables so I would highly recommend getting a reservation.
