Locavore Restaurant in Bali has been named the best fine-dining establishment in Indonesia and number eight in Asia by TripAdvisor's annual Traveler's Choice awards for restaurants across the globe.
Announced on Wednesday, the awards identify 353 fine-dining restaurant winners, including the top 25 in the world and dedicated lists for Asia, Canada, China, Europe, India, South America, the South Pacific, the United Kingdom and the United States.
“The Travelers’ Choice restaurant winners have won over the TripAdvisor community with their outstanding food, service and ambiance – the perfect ingredients for a memorable fine-dining experience,” TripAdvisor chief marketing officer Barbara Messing said in a press release on Wednesday.
“TripAdvisor is raising a glass to these top restaurants in the world that have delighted our community and its appetites.”
A relative newcomer to the restaurant scene in Indonesia, Locavore Restaurant, which opened in early 2013, serves modern, contemporary European cuisine using locally grown and seasonal ingredients.
“This was hands down the best meal of our trip and a great way to end our time in Bali. Delicious, creative and thoughtfully presented food made with high quality, locally sourced ingredients, along with great service and a beautifully designed airy, stylish space,” commented a TripAdvisor reviewer.
Interestingly, in addition to Locavore, all the other restaurants on the country's top 10 list are also located in Bali.
Pearl French Restaurant in Legian, which ranked second at the top 10 Travelers’ Choice restaurants in Indonesia, also claims the ninth spot on the Asia list.
The Traveler's Choice awards honour top travel spots worldwide based on millions of reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor users. The winners are determined using an algorithm that take into account the quantity and quality of reviews for restaurants worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period.
