Fresh food is prepared daily by the accomplished Chef Gede, who previously worked with the internationally - re-known Kafe Warisan in Bali, and also spent time honing his skills in Japan. He specializes in French, Continental, Asian and Japanese cuisines. The Villa has a house menu to provide ideas for meals, which the chef will tailor to suit guests' needs by discussing food preferences. Dinner parties, functions, unique dietary requirements and special orders can all be catered for, and meals can be a simple affair or a grand banquet according to guests' whims.
Food products and drinks are purchased in well-stocked supermarkets and delicatessens, or in the local markets where the fresh healthy produce is especially good and inexpensive. Guests are asked to pay for the shopping at the time of ordering the food, upon purchase of which all receipts and change will be returned. The only additional charge above menu ingredients is a modest amount to cover the transportation cost.
