Villa 1880 - In villa dining

Dining

In-villa dining is one of the many highlights of a stay at Villa 1880. Guests are fortunate to have on hand a world-class chef who brings passion and creativity to the table as well as culinary expertise honed at Sardine, one of Bali’s most celebrated restaurants. He skillfully whips up hearty or healthy breakfasts, casual lunches, alfresco barbecues or gourmet dinners served family-style according to your tastes. Choose from an inspired menu that highlights Bali’s rich harvest from both land and sea, explores the Indonesian archipelago’s culinary diversity, and delivers a new take on western favourites with delicious meals and multi-dish set menus.

Sample the chef’s home-made preserves with fresh sourdough bread at breakfast. Linger over a poolside lunch of chicken, cashew and tarragon wraps, nasi goring or risotto with crabmeat and asparagus. Nibble on captivating canapés over sunset cocktails, then enjoy a mouth-watering seafood barbecue on the rooftop terrace bathed in moonlight. The chef’s desserts are legendary; insist on a cheesecake or mango pannacotta during your stay.

Kids are well catered for, and there’s also an excellent selection of vegetarian and super-healthy options… and the chef is more than happy to tailor meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements. Conveniently, there’s also an excellent menu of wines readily available at supermarket prices with no mark up.

It is advisable to plan meals the evening before to allow adequate time for the chef to prepare. The staff will then undertake the grocery shopping, visiting the local markets and specialty food shops in Seminyak. Groceries and beverages are charged at cost price plus 20% and a handling fee, and staff will keep all receipts for reference. Guests are kindly requested to provide the manager with grocery money in advance.

    Thank you to all for a wonderful time at Villa 1880. The staff are all so nice and helpful. Gede (Villa Manager) was great when my daughter had an accident. We were able to get to a doctor right away and have her taken care of. This villa is gorgeous and perfect for a friends and family vacation. We look forward to coming back soon.

    We had a beautiful Easter in Bali with our extended family. The property had lots of space to spread out and Putu and Widya were super helpful with all our meals and dinner bookings. Breakfast was fantastic and the chef made us some delicious curries on the first night. We will be back. We love the massage from Ria and her team, they were amazing.

    Retro, cool but very functional. We had a delightful stay at Villa 1880. The big plus for us was the Seminyak location without all the noise of motorbikes and bustle of being in town. The street is amazingly quiet given the beach and a great selection of restaurants are within walking distance. Watercress is very good. The rooms are very generous with a touch of funky but the other shout out is the staff. We had a superb dinner (such tender beef rendang and a homemade cheese cake to die for). We were served by super friendly staff who really made our stay quite memorable. Would go back in a heartbeat.

    Villa 1880 is absolute paradise, better than we could could have hoped for. The villa staff were so friendly and we all love them. We are going to miss the villa so much and hope one day we might be back. We absolutely loved Villa 1880 and did not want to leave! The beautiful gardens, gorgeous decor and generous space were just perfect. The friendly and attentive staff were our favorite part. The kids loved the pool and the bunk beds and the extra touches like kids books and movies made life so easy. The villa was wonderful. Usually the reality is not as good as the photos but in this time reality was better! The staff were wonderful and greatly added to the enjoyment of our stay.

    Thank you for wonderful stay in your Villa! It was perfect for our group, and very comfortable. We are lucky to have called it home for last ten days. The staff were exception, especially Widya and Putu. Nanik was lovely, and the chef was a fantastic cook. All our meals were excellent and the kids were very happy with the pancakes and fruit, and they loved the pasta and burgers. The adult dinners were delicious and varied. The staff learn your names (and coffee preferences) early and truly made us feel at home. The villa itself is gorgeous, we loved the unique design of old building. The kids bedroom, lounge room and table tennis areas were fantastic and well used. Comfortable beds. We loved Villa 1880 and would definitely recommend it. Thank you all so very, very much!
