Pearl Restaurant at the Pearl Hotel in Bali

French Fine Dining in a Secret Garden in Legian

Pearl Restaurant Bali serves up authentic French fare in an airy but intimate garden setting, neatly tucked away at the end of a lane off Legian’s Jalan Arjuna (aka Double Six Road), thus completely away from the traffic. Part of the namesake Pearl Hotel, the restaurant’s alfresco garden area is much favoured by repeat diners, which comes to life in the early evenings with light blue fairy lights and hanging lanterns. Meanwhile, an adjacent building houses lounging and more private spaces, together with a bar, wine cellar and kitchen where French chef Jeremy Blanchet prepares his creations.

Fresh from completing his apprenticeship at the Michelin-star La Petite France in Maussan, Chef Jeremy moved to Bali to surf the island’s exciting reef breaks… and most of all, channel his culinary passion through Pearl Restaurant in 2009. Together with his team, he combines French traditional cooking techniques and presentations with locally sourced ingredients, therefore you’ll find very slight hints of Balinese and Southeast Asian influences throughout the menu, which also changes according to the season.

Some selections that have proven popular among those who’ve discovered this ‘well-kept’ dining secret, managed to stay on the menu for quite some time. Among them is grilled scallop wrapped in Parma ham for starters (IDR 115,000 or USD 8.70); four pieces that sit prettily on soft, light green asparagus mousse, accompanied by a dash of passionfruit balsamic vinegar on a long plate. Whenever you’re in for a surprise, simply ask for the ‘chef’s special’, which features any fresh catch or seasonal produce that the chef and his team gets their hands on.

Our main dish, the duck leg confit, was one of the chef’s latest additions, a dish that also happens to be one the most luxurious in French cuisine. Gently cured in its own fat and slowly cooked over a considerable amount of time, below the crispy skin, our duck leg indeed was all tender and easily-slip-off-the-bone goodness. Then came our specially made dessert, Chef Jeremy's chocolate sphere (IDR 110,000 or USD 8.40), which you need to gently crack with your spoon to reveal its delightful content. The orb is presented with raspberry sorbet, caramel sauce and white chocolate emulsion.

The accompanying bar at Pearl Restaurant is a little bit of a love story. The chef met his Russian sweetheart in Bali, who happens to be a mixologist, and that’s where most of the cocktail creations came to life. Amazing cocktails (from IDR 120,000 or USD 9.15) include the sweet and refreshing ‘candy pear’ vodka, made with melon and fresh pineapple juice, and the ‘caramel and lemon pie’, a blend of caramel and homemade limoncello. The well-stocked cellar beside the bar is worth a look, stacked with authentic bottles of French chateaus such as Pichon, Poujeaux, Le Tertre Roteboeuf, Cote-Rotie and L’Eglise Clinet.
