This elegant restaurant sits unobtrusively in a quiet corner of Jimbaran. Tapis Restaurant at Kayumanis offers a pleasant environment for dining and a menu of authentic Indonesian cuisine.


The restaurant is relatively small and presents as a luxury home. Timber furnishings dominate the interior and while there is an Indonesian authenticity with the menu, dishes are presented in an appealing modern mode.

I made myself comfortable at one of the tables and started my culinary journey with tuna sambal matah – pan seared tuna with sesame seed served with Balinese chili sauce ‘matah’. I followed this with the restaurants rendang, a rich beef stew based with coconut milk and the delicate sway of tamarind. I just couldn’t get enough of this delicious rending as authentic and savory spices soak up thorough the tender meat of beef.

Eager to sample as much as I could, I ordered a second main course, Magnut Ikan – snapper simmered in coconut milk and topped off with a special chili sauce. This was Indonesian fare at its best.

I took a plunge with Tapis at Kayumanis’ new cocktail that they have named Melodi Kemangi. Here vodka, mango, strawberry and ‘kemangi’ leaves are brought together to produce a very refreshing drink indeed.
To end on a sweet tooth I had a plate of Klepon Nilasari – a sweet cake made from purple yam, brown sugar and grated coconut. This sweet goes really well with a scoop of red bean ice cream.
