A Culinary Gem in Bali: Locavore’s Unforgettable Experience

Local Flavors, Global Recognition

Without a doubt, Locavore stands out as one of the finest dining experiences in Bali, masterfully blending local ingredients with freshness, taste, originality, and creativity. This culinary haven transforms ingredients right before your eyes, reminiscent of an effervescent laboratory dedicated to gastronomy. Prepare to be astonished by the 5 or 7-course Herbivore menu, a vegetarian’s dream, though the non-vegetarian Locavore menu is equally impressive. Opt to enhance your meal with a thoughtfully paired drink selection.

A Symphony of Tastes

The flavors we experienced at Locavore left us speechless, a testament to when a meal transcends expectations. Each dish was a perfect balance, maintaining texture and delivering optimum taste. The attention to detail was evident, as dishes were served at the ideal temperature, ensuring a seamless transition from kitchen to table. The presentation was nothing short of theatrical, with each plate boasting a unique design to complement the dish, complete with arrangements and props that added an element of surprise.

Harmony in the Kitchen

The adage “too many cooks spoil the broth” is dispelled at Locavore. The two young and talented chefs, Eelke Plasmeijer and Ray Adriansyah, along with their agile team, perform a flawless ballet behind the open kitchen. The silence and lack of fuss from the kitchen area are a stark contrast to the intricate dance of flavors on your plate, proving that a harmonious kitchen can indeed lead to a sublime dining experience.

Innovative Pairings and Delicacies From the Tomato Sorbet starter to the intricate Purple Kohlrabi dish, each course was a revelation. The Root Vegetables dish, served lukewarm with a homemade ricotta cheese vinaigrette, and the Bitter Baby Lettuce Soup, with its 64-degree Kampung egg, were both standouts. The Apple Malang dessert was the crowning glory, with its caramelized apple sorbet and salty cashew nut butter, leaving us in a state of blissful food-induced euphoria.

Sustainable and Fresh: The Heart of Locavore

Locavore’s commitment to local and fresh ingredients is unwavering. The menu is ever-changing, reflecting what’s available and in season, sourced from local farmers with whom the restaurant maintains a close relationship. Dining at Locavore is not just a meal; it’s an adventure that marries performance, food, and art for an unforgettable experience.


An Epicurean Journey Worth Taking Locavore is a wonderful food adventure, an absolutely stunning mixture of performance, food, and art for an unforgettable dining experience. It’s a place where each visit promises a new narrative, a fresh perspective, and a delightful journey through the tastes of Bali.
