Nusa Dua’s tranquil coastal stretch has just gotten a remarkable upgrade with the addition of Ikan at The Westin Resort Bali. After undergoing a complete transformation, this open-air restaurant and bar has become a unique destination that promises to tantalize your taste buds and leave you with unforgettable memories.
The restaurant’s contemporary island aesthetic, complete with a thatched roof and locally-inspired design elements, offers a delightful dining experience that varies throughout the day and night. During the day, it provides a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere, while at night, it transforms into an upscale dining destination by the beach, perfect for a romantic dinner.
Ikan offers different seating arrangements to cater to every guest’s preferences. You can start your experience by enjoying a refreshing aperitif at the beachside bar, then move on to the main restaurant area for dinner. Alternatively, you can choose to hang out at the Ikan Bar, a sophisticated space with a wicker-back bar stool and a turquoise island counter.
For those looking for some privacy, the restaurant has a hexagonal semi-private dining area as well as an air-conditioned private room that can accommodate up to 20 people. Couples can opt for the five individual tables on the beach for their romantic dinner.
Headed by Chef de Cuisine Fajar Kurniawan Putra, Ikan’s menu showcases his passion for local produce and Indonesia’s diverse regional cuisine. Together with Head Mixologist Marlon Hermanto, Fajar has created a menu that includes small bites, tapas, mains, and desserts that guests are encouraged to share.
The menu’s highlights include the Crab Spring Roll with belimbing wuluh salsa, Bulung – a seaweed salad made of seared tuna and kuah pindang scented dressing, the slow-cooked Ayam Upih Betutu, and the freshly-caught Jimbaran-style Ikan Bakar served with sayur urap vegetable and sambals.
Ikan Bar offers a range of signature craft cocktails, including the Gunung Agung, made with Nusa Cana Rum, Falernum, and roselle soda. You can also try the Italian Job, a concoction made with house-made limoncello, prosecco, green apple soda, and dill.
In conclusion, Ikan at The Westin Resort Bali is an exceptional dining experience that offers not just great food and drinks but also an ambiance that is perfect for unwinding with friends and family.
