Down the lawn and up the steps, the airy hall inside Kayumanis Restaurant opens up showcasing clusters of long and round tables interspersed with potted plants. Framed by a wraparound porch and anchored with a long wooden bar in the back, the Java-import joglo builds an elegant yet intimate atmosphere for a slow, leisurely meal.
Highlighting the richness of the archipelago’s cuisine, Kayumanis serves tasty dishes from appetisers to desserts, and even drinks on both its omnivore and vegetarian menus. Aside from a detailed list of wines, spirits and cocktails, worth a try on the menu are the Indonesian herbal concoctions and traditional drinks, plus mocktails with local twists.
