BOLD AND CHIC, the ca­sual fine-din­ing and pri­vate event venue Chez Gado Gado has a big and suit­ably apt name. After over thirty years, the restau­rant has earned it­self a long-stand­ing legacy and has bloomed into a well-rounded adult ex­pe­ri­ence – all with­out ever out­grow­ing its light-hearted moniker.

Mod­estly stand­ing at the side tail-end of Jl. Cam­plung Tan­duk in the bustling labyrinth of Seminyak, Chez Gado Gado en­joys a cov­eted lo­ca­tion right on Seminyak Beach, not to men­tion am­ple park­ing for lav­ish par­ties.

Re­opened after ma­jor ren­o­va­tions in 2010, the venue main­tains a clas­sic vibe with stern at­ten­tion to de­tail in its en­graved wood­work, deca­dent chan­de­liers and a pol­ished ca­noe that

hangs from the din­ing room’s high ceil­ings. Not only has the venue’s in­te­ri­ors evolved, the restau­rant’s menus, in­clud­ing the Chef’s Tast­ing Menu, have come a long way.

Try some fa­vorites from the a la carte or, the sig­na­ture set menu - an in­dul­gent treat that shouldn’t be missed; Tuna carpac­cio a la nicoise, fol­lowed by oc­to­pus and squid fric­as­see with iberico chorizo, can­neline beans, pesto, zuc­chini and ginger emul­sion. Third course is oven baked floun­der with white truf­fle mousse, white shrimp, ju­niper berry and nan­tua sauce, while the fourth is grilled Aus­tralian rib-eye with herb but­ter, turnip, zuc­chini, braised shal­lot and jus. Close the meal by hav­ing one of the de­li­cious desserts of Chez Gado Gado.

Never rest­ing on their lau­rels, the culi­nary team con­tin­ues to wow diehard fans and new­com­ers with new de­lights in­clud­ing their popular Sun­set Bites. Show­cas­ing the best avail­able pro­duce from around Bali, there’s noth­ing bet­ter than a few ta­pas and ice-cold beers shared with friends as the sun fades beyond the indigo hori­zon. There’s no rea­son to skip break­fast now that Chez Gado Gado has opened for break­fast, of­fer­ing a re­laxed, yet sump­tu­ous menu from 9am to 12pm. Serv­ing ev­ery­thing from an at­trac­tively priced home­made muf­fin and cof­fee combo to heav­enly poached eggs with sal­mon, there’s some­thing for ev­ery­one at Chez Gado Gado.
