John Hardy Seminyak Serves Up a Festive Indonesian Feast

A longstanding John Hardy tradition that brings together staff members, families, and customers at the jewelry brand’s workshop in Mambal (outside Ubud) on a regular basis, The Long Table Lunch also draws visitors to its two-story space not far from Bali’s buzzing southwestern coast.

Now, The Long Table at John Hardy Boutique and Gallery, Seminyak is ushering in the year-end holidays with the launch of a festive menu. Available from December 1–31, 2023, the multicourse feast has been created by executive chef Tomy Saputra as an ode to Indonesia’s diverse flavors and heritage recipes. Guests can now book a seat at the table for lunch or request a private dinner with friends and loved ones.

Chef Tomy specializes in authentic Indonesian fare cooked by way of traditional methods using organic local produce, and his seasonal menus celebrate the culinary culture of Bali and other islands around the archipelago. Meals at The Long Table are delivered with warm and welcoming service in a memorable setting that faces John Hardy Seminyak’s own terraced garden and temple.

Whether you’re well-acquainted with Indonesian cuisine or discovering its richness and complexities for the very first time, The Long Table lunch at John Hardy Seminyak is bound to be a real treat. Dishes here are elevated with a dash of sophistication while honoring age-old cooking techniques and island-grown foodstuffs, like heritage rice cultivated at the John Hardy Workshop in Mambal or ingredients sourced from local farmers each day.

Named A Holiday Feast, the special menu spans nine courses including two desserts. A highlight is the ikan bakar kecombrang, or catch of the day grilled with coffee wood over an open fire before being dressed in torch ginger shavings. Other specialties range from braised Sumatran beef short rib to the signature Balinese tofu marinated with fermented soy, smoked using sweet rambutan wood, and served with peanut sauce and coconut sambal. As no meal in most Indonesian households is complete without rice, there’s a serving of nasi bakar—steamed grains infused with pandan leaves, lemongrass, and Indonesian bay leaf, that are then grilled in a banana-leaf wrapping. Each multicourse feast also features an assortment of chef Tomy’s favorite sambals and krupuk (flavored flour-based crisps).

The festive season special is priced at Rp 550,000++ per person, with wine, cocktails and traditional mocktails offered separately. Reservations must be made at least one day in advance, and a minimum of 10 guests applies to private dinners overlooking the illuminated garden. Details of the full menu can be seen here.

John Hardy Seminyak offers a unique selection of dining experiences from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Depending on the time of day, customers can enjoy Balinese coffee, beautifully made cocktails centered on local ingredients and spices, an Indonesian-inspired afternoon tea showcasing traditional snacks, and sunset picnics. Reservations for the festive feast at The Long Table can be made by calling 62/811-3811-8004.
