A show case of herbs and spices of the archipelago with focus on Tabanan style Balinese recipes, sambals and cooking techniques form the basis of Lily by The Sea’s Indonesian offerings. Authentic flavours that will delight a local and fascinate a visitor.

Ayam betutu with fresh turmeric, galangal and lemongrass grilled in banana leaf. Crispy local rice field duck marinated in cinnamon, coriander seeds, ginger & nutmeg are some of the dishes that will dance upon your tongue. Fish satay on lemongrass skewers and smokey coconut husk bbq whole fish provide freshness from sea to table, thanks to the local fisherman of Pantai Pasut. Tandoori tofu and red lentil tempe appetizer and street style kari Malayu with its creamy chicken coconut curry served with homemade roti canai and pickled pineapple are a modern celebration of Indian influences in the archipelago. Served with steamed Balinese rice grown and harvested on the door step.

Inspired by the gourmet café trends of Europe, Lily by The Sea provides international guests with a sense of home from home. The joys of combining fresh Tagliatelle or Pappardelle Pasta with a cashew basil pesto. Aglio e olio topped with grilled seafood from the sea in front of you, is a summer holiday feeling.

Roman style sheet pizza made with thin crispy focaccia like dough, local mozzarella and homemade nduja (a cured soft pork salami) are simple pleasures. Prime beef burgers, artisan bread sandwiches and Bahn Mi served with hand cut fries along with Caesar salad are among the all-time favourites with a modern twist. There is a Kimchi grilled cheese Toastie for the more adventurous!


Fresh home bakes and local sweet delights are not just a beautiful finale to a meal but also available as sweet, refreshing snacks throughout the day. To satisfy a local sweet tooth, pisang goreng (Bali banana fitters) with palm sugar drizzle and optional vanilla ice-cream, rice flour Tabanan style Balinese jajan with coconut imagined in so many ways or Es Campur, the mother of all crushed ice desserts with fresh fruit cocktail, coconut milk, tapioca pearls, grass jelly & so much more…
