I am writing to tell you what a sensational dinner it was! The food was genuinely exciting and satisfying! The birthday boy was a senior chef for QANTAS for many years and is a foodie, as are we, and so much of our conversation was...how many of the dishes were achieved so brilliantly. Each presentation plate was a work of art in itself - great work by Gaya again I see! The service was friendly, informative and unobtrusive, and we three walked away saying we had one of the most exciting and brilliantly executed dining experiences we'd ever had. Certainly best in Bali! So thank you and your team for a truly memorable evening!More

A very disappointed experience, that made me doubt about the credibility of the comments I read here before booking. We love the kind of restaurants that have degustation menus, to have a different gastronomic experience, and it was what we were expecting from our dinner...in Aperitif, therefore I booked a table to take my boyfriend for a “good gastronomic experience” for his birthday, but it was very far from that, why? - When I made the booking, I chose the Prestige Menu, when we arrived there, in the prestige menu there were more plates that if you wanted them you had to pay extra. If a dish is not included in this menu, it should be in a la carte menu. We felt tricked here. - The lack of taste and quality distinction for me was the worst, there is not a single dish that we said wow! Everything taste boring, we were expecting more creativity and taste. Except for the Wagyu that the quality was exceptional. - The portions are ridiculously small, and of course I was not waiting for big portions, as this is the interesting part of a gastronomic menu; that you experience different dishes and flavors, but believe me, they were tiny and the lack of taste is what makes it even smaller. After leaving the restaurant I had to look for something to eat, but all restaurants were closed, so I went to bed hangry, which is the worst feeling a restaurant can leave on a client. - They asked all the time if you want more bread, we had the feeling, they want to fill you up with bread. - At the end you get around 8 sweets, which makes it feel like you are in a kind of bakery, or that you got the rest from a buffet, as especially the last chocolates (around 7) you get all them together and on a plate, they even put some to take away, it was just too much. It would be better less and more quality, and more salty dishes instead of sooo many sweets, even we love sweets, we went there to have dinner, not to make as sick with sweets, as they did. Today my boyfriend is sick, because as we were still hangry we ate more sweets than usual. - The staff is very professional, but the service was no in the level of a restaurant that supposedly won the awards for “the best restaurant “ in Indonesia. Our food starting coming without being asked before what we wanted to drink. The cocktails arrived with the 3rd dish… we were offered bread after the second dish, and normally it should be the first thing that comes. - We paid 5.000.000 rupiahs (300 EUR) for the same or less money we have had amazing culinary experiences in Geneva, Barcelona, Madrid, Singapore, Ibiza, Paris… in restaurants like Fonda España (from Berasategi), Estimar (from Rafa Zafra), Bullí (from Ferra Adria), Estragon, Heart Ibiza… In their favor I would like to say that the place is very nice and it makes you feel like you will have a good gastronomic experience and the staff is professional and kind, they light up a candle for my boyfriend with a small dessert, it was very nice. Here I’m just judging the food, quality, quantity and price. Until now we have been eating incredibly well in Bali, in beautiful places, incredible food, extraordinary service and great quality, it’s a perfect place for 2 foodies like us, therefore I think, with all great restaurants here, there is a lot to improve in this restaurant. I definitely don’t recommend it if you want to have a good culinary experience, if you just care about how the place looks then it’s ok. We left with a big disappointment and felt tricked.More

The food, the service, the interiors and the entire Aperitif experience is impeccable. We had the six-course degustation menu, but with all amuse bouche, palate cleansers, and the marathon of desserts and sweet treats, it's more like 15! It's so much more than just a...dinner, with the theatrics of table-side cocktails, the smoking appetisers and the finale that's hosted in the 1920s style bar. Would highly recommend!More

It was a feast for the eyes and the palate. Our plant based dinner at Aperitif was definitely one of my top 5 meals in Bali. Every creation was creative, full of flavour and passion. Hands down and chapeau bas to the chefs for making...this experience so rich, delicious and for proving that vegan fine dining is as exciting as we’d hope. Not to mention the space making us for like we travelled in time. The gorgeous decor of the restaurant and incredible bar were to die for. Thank you, until next time 🤍More

Had dinner with the family a couple of nights ago. This is the very pinnacle of dining in Bali. We had the degustation (6courses) and you get bonuses as well with some lovely hors devours to start which were delicious, also a select cocktail and...icing on the cake, petit fours at the completion. All this can be enjoyed in the beautiful aesthetics of an old colonial style bar/ drawing room and restaurant. Not your every night dining establishment but Bali holiday treat or special occasion. Oh and impeccably dressed and friendly and efficient staff as well.More
