Ku De Ta hit the shores of Bali fifteen years ago. It was the place to chill by the beach and party through the night. We would visit many times in a holiday, as it was always so easy yet so good.
This year we headed back for sunset and a light dinner at the bar. The bar was full, as were the outdoor tables, but they were quick to find us a good table, with a good view of the setting sun, and there was no issue that we had the kids with us.
The staff are fabulous, patiently waiting for our order while one or other of us would disappear to take more photos of the setting sun on the beach.
The food is excellent and hearty. I had the slipper lobster with chips (a roasted potato style, not a simple fry). The plate was piled high - I gave my partner a whole one and my sons a half each and I still struggled to finish the meal.
The cocktails are delicious and innovative and the desserts so tempting that we all succumbed (though I was so full I had to opt for the tiny homemade mini Magnum.)
The ambience is still cool and casual, hip without the attitude. It may not be the newest kid on the block, but it is certainly still one of the best. It's still as busy as ever, so bookings are recommended, as it's got one of the best sunset views in Seminyak.
