Locavore broke grounds in early 2013 as an enterprise by two five-star resort chefs, Eelke Plasmeijer and Ray Adriansyah, who shared the same vision. They set out to passionately create a unique dining scene that serves modern, contemporary European cuisine using locally grown and seasonal ingredients. Inspired by a trending healthy dining concept in the west, they named their restaurant Locavore or ‘eat local’ and were determined to serve as catalysts between local producers and discriminating diners. Now it is regarded best restaurant in Ubud, featuring a menu that is ingredient-driven, and with their lasting relationships with the farmers, fishermen and artisans they assure their patrons of the freshest of chemical-free seasonal produce and meat from ethically fed farm animals. Delicious mains include slow-braised oxtail with pan-fried gnocchis, green asparagus and eggplant puree, and there’s also barramundi and various pork preparations. Must-try desserts include passion fruit sorbet and bitter chocolate ganache. Open for lunch and dinner – bookings are recommended. Opening Hours: Mon – Sat 12:00 14:30, 18:00 – 23:00
