An Ubud Oa­sis

Jun­gle Fish of­fers not only great food and drinks, but also a panoramic venue to kick back and re­lax by one of Bali's most al­lur­ing pools.

In the heart of Ubud's most serene area is Jun­gle Fish, a semi ope­nair, multi-level res­tau­rant that is famed for its al­lur­ing swim­ming pool, over­look­ing the lush green­ery of the Wos River val­ley. The res­tau­rant and bar are styled af­ter Ba­li­nese warmth and cosi­ness, while keep­ing sleek un­der­stated Scan­di­na­vian el­e­ments in mind.

For easy bites and po­tent cock­tails, head to the bar just by the pool, while for a sat­is­fy­ing meal, opt for the res­tau­rant above – es­pe­cially the newly

built deck, per­fect for en­joy­ing the said view from an el­e­vated point.

Beyond the idyl­lic set­ting and un­ri­valled am­bi­ence, Jun­gle Fish of­fers de­lec­ta­ble dishes in­spired by Asian and Mediter­ranean flavours. The res­tau­rant's lunch menu of­fers light and re­fresh­ing bites, per­fect to be savoured while los­ing the track of time in a scenic part of the world. Viet­namese sum­mer roll and baked feta cheese with gar­lic, chilli, tomato, shal­lot, oregano and olive oil make a great choice to start the meal.

Light bites vary, from Thai beef salad and beef ke­bab, to the wood-fired pizza se­lec­tion and de­li­cious shar­ing plat­ters. For the main show, Thai curry, pork belly and soto Betawi are some of the all-time lunch favourites.

Come din­ner time, hearty meals are on of­fer, from crispy pork sam­bal matah and Ara­bic meat­balls for starters, to a wide se­lec­tion of meat and seafood dishes. The ten­der­loin with seeded mus­tard crust and beef gravy is sim­ply scrump­tious, and the grilled hal­ibut with young mango salad,

yel­low turmeric rice and chilli sam­bal show­cases a unique com­bi­na­tion of flavours.

This fes­tive sea­son, Jun­gle Fish is ready to spoil din­ers with the most ap­petis­ing Christ­mas culi­nary clas­sics. The res­tau­rant of­fers deca­dent Christ­mas cui­sine, cour­tesy of Ex­ec­u­tive Chef Wuisan Chan­dra, for Christ­mas Eve din­ner. Mean­while on the morn­ing of 25th De­cem­ber, Jun­gle Fish will see a spe­cial Christ­mas Day Brunch, fea­tur­ing In­done­sian and Mediter­ranean buf­fets. Santa Claus will bring joy for the young ones, and the whole fam­ily can also en­joy an acous­tic per­for­mance of Christ­mas carols. Ring in the New Year with

Jun­gle Fish's in­ti­mate fam­ily set menu, com­ple­mented by live band per­for­mances, Ba­li­nese dances and a DJ. Jun­gle Fish
