Fine Dining Under The Stars
What a wonderful restaurant! This is a fine dining restaurant with prices to match and so this was a special meal for us. However, the service, ambience and food all lived up to the price tag. We were staying at the hotel for 7 nights and saved this meal for the end of our stay. It had been raining all day and so we thought we would not be able to sit outside however, in time for sunset, the rain and clouds vanished opening to an expanse of star lit skies. We sat on comfortable bean bags by the Fire Bowl watching the sunset sipping expertly made cocktails. - Honestly the best cocktails I have ever tasted - try the Honey Mojito..... WOW! You are given complimentary homemade crisps which are also just excellent and so moreish. We were not rushed to our table which was a nice touch too. We sat poolside, looking out to sea, which was very romantic and peaceful. It was very dark as the evening went on, just soft candlelight on each table so you felt quite alone. Each menu had a tiny torch attached so you could read it. The service was by far the best we experienced in all of Bali. Highly professional, attentive and friendly. There was complimentary warm freshly baked Gluten Free bread (what a treat!) for us both to start with some lovely tapenades. I had a truly wonderful spinach, pesto, shallot, chilli and cashew salad to start. I was not blown away by the description on the menu but it is honestly one of the best things I have ever eaten. For main I had the Damai Nasi Goreng. Being a GF Vegetarian there was not a vast amount to choose from and Nasi Goreng is not my favourite dish - however it was presented like a piece of interactive edible art and was a joy to eat. I loved the little smoke burner/grill to cook my tempe and veg kebabs. My husband had the Gavalax to start, beautifully presented and delicate and for main he had the Special of Barracuda - which he is still raving about as the best thing he has ever eaten! For dessert we both had a coconut ice cream with charred coconut and chilled white chocolate sauce. Divine and went beautifully accompanied by the dessert wine. This was a highlight of our 3 weeks in Bali and will be a lasting memory.

probably best restaurant in Bali
Really great breakfast - everything you can dream of. Dinner is fantastic - especially if you choose a la carte menu.

We had an amazing dinner by the pool, under the stars with a for real wood log fire burning at the other end of the pool. Absolutely magical atmosphere and experience! The Damai uses lots of local produce, and some/most/all of their herbs and vegetables are grown onsite, you can see them as you walk through the grounds. Really cool to know how fresh the produce is. We had a mahi mahi and a rabbit, both were delectable and was a great beginning to our holiday. Cap it off with a beautiful bottle of wine or a cocktail from the bar. You will not regret The Damai!
