El Kabron Spanish Restaurant & Cliff Club is one of Bali’s best kept secrets. With its refreshing Mediterranean interior and mesmerizing 180-degree views of the Indian Ocean, it offers a clean modern ambience with a mellow atmosphere. Come for lunch and linger the afternoon away to catch a breathtaking sunset.
The restaurant serves traditional Mediterranean and Spanish cuisine crafted by chef Marc Torices Guardia, who brings years of experience from working in Barcelona’s best restaurants. They offer some of the most mouthwatering selections of tapas, such as ‘las bravas del kabron’, Spanish fries loaded with mayonnaise and a fiery sauce, ‘pulp a la gallega’, luscious morsels of octopus with smoky paprika, and ‘gambas al ajillo’, delectable prawns infused with a spicy garlicky sauce. With an extensive wine list, classic and signature cocktails (such as their top-secret-concoction ‘sex on the cliff’) and homemade sangria, there’s an array of drinks to complement your meal and mood.
The venue’s cliff-top location will make you feel like you’re suspended on a floating beach-side sanctuary, its infinity pool overlooking a seemingly never-ending horizon. Cosy lilac pillows are littered upon the sand, just perfect to ensconce yourself in and admire the sunset with a refreshing cocktail. Chill-out beats set the mood, making it the perfect oasis to escape and unwind.
As El Kabron garners more and more much-deserved praise, reservations are highly recommended. The crowds are an assortment of locals, travelers and expats, and if you’re visiting on a weekend, we advise grabbing a taxi from the peninsula area. The restaurant is open 7 days a week from 11:30 – 22:00.
