Dinner’s when you’ll get to try out all kinds of interesting dishes – have you ever eaten Prawn Betal Leaves?

There’s also the Crispy Pork Belly – Snap, crackle, pop! Their signature Crispy Pork Belly smothered in chilli lime caramel and served on a bed of bok choy with papaya salad on the side sure sounds good. And of course, you can’t possibly miss out on the signature seafood dishes since you’re at Jimbaran!

Just imagining munching down on all these while the sunsets above our heads is giving us a bit of saliva overdrive, but guess what?

28. Live dangerously: Madu Sari Mountain Restaurant

Madu Sari Mountain Restaurant is, as its name suggests, located on a mountain.

madu sari sunrise over lake batur cr flickr dennis stauffer

To be precise, Madu Sari is on the very edge of the crater of Mount Batur, a still-active volcano, that thankfully spends most of its time asleep.

If you dine here, you’ll sit surrounded by streaks of molten lava from previous eruptions, green pine shoots, and Lake Batur, a crater lake.

madu sari cr balimadusari.com 1

A variety of local and European food will be served buffet-style, and you can go to the nearby Volcanology Museum afterwards for a very nerdy V-Day celebration.

Breakfast options are: fruit, pancakes and toast with a variety of jam.

The lunch spread includes three choices of soup, rice fried and plain, cap cay, fried chicken, fried tuna, beef stroganoff and others.

resto apung balisummerholiday.com

The most striking aspect of dining at Resto Apung is of course the unusual location – cool fresh air, the peaceful silence that cloaks the lake, Mount Batur rising over the world and the changing light over the water.

And the food is nothing to scoff at.

You can feast on Indonesian cuisine – the fried chicken and goreng pisang are divine, and fish is served up fresh from the lake itself.
