    French Beachfront Dining in Tuban


    Ma Joly Restaurant and Lounge at The Sandi Phala is one of a very few fine beachfront restaurants in the quiet resort area of Tuban, bordering the southernmost end of Kuta Beach. The restaurant features seating options indoors and out, as well as private dining pergolas where intimate candlelit moments are set against a beautiful ocean and sunset backdrop. The menu presents a range of French and continental cuisine, created by Chef Paolo Petris.

  • For the finest of settings, there’s the main pavilion with its airy layout under an open-beam traditional thatched roof ceiling, with subtly-lit chandeliers and bronze draperies across pillars. For a most memorable ambiance strictly for two, opt for a reserved ‘tent’ that is adorned with ribbon and draperies, set up right on the sand. At any given sunset, simply stroll past the pool towards the Sand Lounge, where cocktails, mocktails and wines are served.

    A standard four-course set dinner (IDR 410,000 or USD 31 per person) starts with a confit of yellowfin tuna salad doused in a pleasantly tangy lemon ginger dressing. Then comes the seafood and corn chowder, and the mains of a slow-cooked seabass with pumpkin puree and lemon basil foam. A beef tenderloin with mousseline potatoes, confit of baby vegetables and natural jus is an alternative for meat lovers. A serving of choco gelee concludes the experience. Petit degustation menus and ala carte selections are also available.

    Ma Joly Restaurant and Lounge also offers afternoon teas from 14:00 to 16:30, which treat you to selections of savouries and sweets served with Bali coffee or Java highland teas at IDR 98,000 (USD 7.50) per person. These range from tasty mini sandwiches with fillings ranging from grilled vegetables, cheddar cheese, pesto, tuna confit, remoulade and lemon mayo, to sweet items such as tiramisu, chocolate and pistachio brownies and tarts.

    Whether you come for a restful high tea, a sip by sunset, or for a memorable candlelit dining experience, Ma Joly Restaurant and Lounge is simply a great choice to head to for those seeking a brief and not-too-far getaway within the rather bustling Kuta and Tuban strip.
