Bali opens its first underwater restaurant: Koral
The Indonesian food outlet is Bali's first "Aquarium dining experience"
Koral, Bali’s first underwater restaurant, has opened at the Apurva Kempinski.
The bistro-inspired venue calls itself the island's first underwater dining venue, with an expansive aquarium across the walls which also travels along parts of the ceiling.
The venue features wooden ceilings and walls, along with the glass walls revealing an aquarium.
The menu consists of seafood dishes often seen in Indonesia, as well as a number of modern items.
Created by chef Imam Fayumi, the menu includes tomato consommé, blue crab, prawn and lime and a variety of fish and salads.
Koral offers a four-course degustation menu featuring seasonal dishes and a sommelier-selected wine pairing. There is also a list of unusual cocktails such as the ‘Spiced Ink Mojito’.
Apurva Kempinksi Bali general manager, Vincent Guironnet said: “With a growing collection of outstanding restaurants, bars and lounges spread across the resort, The Apurva Kempinski Bali is quickly cementing its reputation as one of the leading culinary destinations on the Island of the Gods."
He continued: “As Bali’s first underwater restaurant, Koral promises something completely unique. Our bistronomic concept combines all aspects of the dining experience, with elegant dishes inspired by local flavours, a warm and welcoming ambiance and the one-of-a-kind opportunity to dine inside a tropical aquarium,”
