Had a wonderful 7 course tasting lunch at Locavore but it was closer to 20 dishes by the end because of all the amuse bouche, pre-desserts and petit fours. Every dish was plated on a custom made dish/platter/vessel in a creative and well executed way....More

I had the burger a la ray which was slightly over cooked (I asked medium-rare and it was medium-well done) however, it was very tasty. The pickled zucchini, crispy bacon and sauces were packed full of flavour. The triple cooked chips were very good too....More

We went for the 5 course dinner last Saturday night and were very impressed. Definitely come hungry as they gave us 3 snacks and 2 starters before we even got to the main meal plus an extra 4 desserts at the end. Considering the variety...More

I'd heard that Locavore was a must visit Resturant in Ubud. I wasn't disappointed. I'm not a 'Foodie' but have dined in some excellent Resturants in Melbourne including Attica, Ezard and most recently INGI in Geelong. I dined solo and was seated facing the small...More

Definitely a very different meal from what you get elsewhere in Bali. Each course was very inventive and interesting. Only drawback was the second half of the meal slowed down tremendously and it became a chore to wait for the next course to arrive. This...More

I first discovered Locavore in Ubud more than 2 years ago and was blown-away by the absolutely stunning dinner. It crept into Asia's Top 50 Restaurants in 2016, and climbed to 22nd place this year. Returned this trip to a new 7-course tasting menu, but...More

I think the vegetarian menu would work for you. I doubt if the meat is halal. They usually have shellfish in the meat menu. We usually get the vegetarian menu and it has always been delicious and filling. I am not super... More

Description
Our non smoking restaurant serves modern, contemporary European cuisine using local, seasonal ingredients. Our chefs share a passion for crafting contemporary European cuisine from quality local ingredients. This concept is already popular in the west and, although it is still new to Indonesia where most chefs rely on expensive imported ingredients, we are proud to be amongst the first to introduce high-end and locally sourced cuisine to Indonesian kitchens. A great deal has been achieved in Locavore' first year which we hope to build on in order to continue satisfying our guests and to continue the strides made in spreading this concept throughout the country. We started working together in Jakarta over five years ago and gradually came to see that it just didn't make sense to cook with imported ingredients when we were surrounded by Indonesia's bounty. We think of ourselves as the catalysts between local producers and discriminating diners. Our ingredient-driven menu celebrates the farmers, fisherman and artisans we've met along our journey. By developing lasting relationships with local producers, we ensure you the freshest of chemical-free seasonal produce and ethically fed meat animals. And by supporting local farmers and artisans, Locavore is an authentic member of its community. A reservation is strongly recommended, typically you should be able to secure a table 2-3 weeks ahead. Reservations can be made via our website and our Facebook Page. Upon making a reservation via one of our two convenient online booking options you will receive a confirmation email to your inbox which will include a booking reference. 24 hours prior to your booking date you will receive an additional email asking you to reconfirm your booking along with instructions on how to do that. We realise many of our guests are busy enjoying their wonderful holidays in Bali or simply don't have all day e-mail access but we do kindly request your attention on the booking emails. We are very thankful for the interest everyone has shown in Locavore but without a confirmed booking we will regrettably have to release the table to other guests. Locavore is a small and cozy restaurant operated by a team of highly dedicated food enthusiasts whose primary goal is to ensure our guests savor their experience at Locavore while dining on artistically prepared, fresh and highly enjoyable dishes. Part of that process is to source 95% of our products locally and not to keep large stocks but rather to source as much of our products fresh on a daily basis. This, together with the fact that all of our dishes are prepared a la minute with only fresh produce, certainly leads to more strain on our team but absolutely allows us to achieve our stated goal of providing our guests with locally produced, fresh and delicious dishes. We are and aim to continue being a fine dining establishment that focuses equal parts on the cuisine and on the experience. To ensure that experience consists of the highest quality, Locavore focuses on a series of set tasting menus; 5-courses or 7 courses in either Locavore or Herbivore style. We are more than happy to modify our set tasting menus for those with dietary preferences, as long as those preferences are mentioned to us during your booking process, since we cater to our guests needs and especially since our chefs certainly love to be challenged to meet new heights. Some may call those preferences a 'dietary restriction' but we simply view your preferences as part of our obligation to ensure you enjoy the experience at our restaurant. Although a meal at Locavore may last several hours, the reason for that is not lack of care or attention but rather the exact opposite ... every dish is prepared with meticulous attention so as to ensure that every one of our guests will walk away from Locavore remembering the cuisine they experienced with us. Come to Locavore not for a rushed meal based on an endless menu but for a meticulously planned culinary journey prepared by our team that will leave you satisfied, fulfilled and eager for your next visit. While we understand that this philosophy may not be applicable for everyone, as food enthusiasts we welcome everyone and anyone to join us at Locavore to take part in this culinary approach which we believe in, standby and advocate for within the sphere of fine dining. As a final note, generally we can advise guests that our menus can take the following service time: - 5 course : 1.5 to 2 hours - 7 course : 2 to 2.5 hours
