Soleil at The Mulia Bali is among the latest five-star restaurants to join the array of luxury dining options along the Nusa Dua coast, particularly on the secluded southern beach of Sawangan. This elegantly designed hall that is dominated by shades of gold, white and beige, is the resort’s signature restaurant, and which has gained popularity for its extravagant weekend dinners and Sunday brunches of Mediterranean and pan-Asian cuisine.
Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views over the resort’s pool and the Nusa Dua seascape beyond towering statues. You can also opt for alfresco seating with gentle sea breezes or in an open-air garden lounge under shady parasols. Every Sunday, Soleil at The Mulia Bali has an extensive brunch buffet from 11:00-13:00.
There are two brunch packages to choose from – one with juices, coffees and teas (IDR 539,000 or around USD 39) and another with wine and cocktails (IDR 879,000 or around USD 64). Soleil has a good selection of New World wines, including Paul Cluver of South Africa, Astrolabe from New Zealand and Chilean Concha Y Torro, while Soleil’s own signature cocktails to try include the Arancia Piccante Martini, a spicy chili-infused take on the Orange-Tini.
Both the buffet line and a la carte menu feature a good mix of dishes – there are also selections with clearly Indonesian, Vietnamese and Thai influences, such as a variety of juicy satay selections representing different origins in Indonesia (Madura, Bali, Marangi and Cilacap), ‘gado gado’ vegetable salads, tom yum and Vietnamese spring rolls. Wine prices in Indonesia can be crazily high; the free-flow wine package is a great deal for connoisseurs.
Following the success of its brunch offerings, Soleil introduced its Weekend Dinner highlight, also with free-flow wine options (IDR 899,000 or around USD 65 per person). Premium meats, grilled seafood, an all-inclusive a la carte menu with daily Chef’s selections are included.
Highlights from the first course menu include the Piovra alla Brace, grilled octopus with capers, lemon and rocket salad, which was a wonderful balance between freshness and textures, Pancetta Fresca grilled Kurobuta pork belly with pickled vegetables and balsamic dressing, Spaghetti Frutti di Mare with clams, shrimps, crab and squid, and Soupe au Pistou or Riviera style vegetable soup with pesto.
For the main course, go for something meaty, such as the Pollo al’Aceto roast chicken doused in a white wine sauce and scented with Italian vinegar and thyme or Steak Frites, grilled hanger steak with mushroom sauce, fried potatoes and classical Fourme d'Ambert French cheese.
In between, the buffet line is there whenever you like, with more tempting morsels – from savouries, salads, cheese and meats… but do save some space for dessert. We eventually made our final round to the expansive dessert buffet, with a towering chocolate fountain and an amazing variety of confections to conclude dinner.
