Multi Bella! Bella Singaraja

InterContinental Bali Resort Opens Island's Latest Fine Dining Venue.


(2/6/2006)

InterContinental Resort Bali has formally re-launched its Bella Singaraja Restaurant and, if the official opening party on Monday, January 30, 2006, is any indication, it is destined to become one of Bali's most talked-about fine-dining venues.

Opulent without being too ostentatious, Bella Singaraja is accessed over a foot-bridge spanning a lotus pond leading to a formal marbled vestibule. Just beyond awaits the restaurant itself, replete with comfortable and intimate seating in a room accented in rich hues of red and gold. To the side of the main dining area is an open kitchen alcove, where a multi-talented brigade prepares classic Italian cuisine infused, but not confused, by Asian culinary accents. A large, private dining room is also available providing a private salon atmosphere enclosed in a glass conservatory, allowing diners an air-conditioned atmosphere surrounded by the Resort's rich tropical gardens and the nearby adjacent seaside.

The a la carte menu includes hot and cold antipasti, appetizers, salads, soups, pasta and generous premium meat and seafood selections. The pasta is made on the premises, as are the fresh gelati ice creams included on the dessert menu.

As just mentioned, the kitchen brigade is truly "multi-talented." This was aptly demonstrated on opening night when the entire serving and cooking staff surrounded our table forming an operatic chorus in support of an aria, masterfully performed by one of the restaurant's lady chefs. A soprano of considerable voice and aplomb, be sure to catch her "act" before she leaves the kitchen forever and goes on tour.

Singing women, a luxurious setting, good food . . . a delightfully decadent formula made whole by Bella Singaraja's fully stocked wine cellars which is home to one of the Island's most complete selection of wines from around the world. Cork-sniffing oenephiles will be in their element when they encounter the resident Cellar Master who seems happiest when leading an impromptu table-side wine tasting.

When asked the inspiration for naming the restaurant Bella Singaraja, the Sommelier kept my glass full while he related an elaborate and involved story of a local Balinese maiden from Singaraja, in north Bali, who fell in love with an Italian adventurer who subsequently lost his life at sea. As the story goes, the forlorn widow, Bella, spent her remaining days keeping vigil for her lost love on the shores of Jimbaran Bay. Perhaps it was the ample quantities of Cabernet he poured while sharing the tale, but the story like the wine seemed good vintage to me.

Fully air-conditioned and able to accommodate only 60 diners, Bella Singaraja is open only for dinner. And, given the enthusiastic response from the diners present on opening night, reservations might be a very good idea.

For Reservations, call ++62-(0)361-701888.
