Villa Joss has an excellent Chef and Assistant Cook who offer a dining service with a full international menu and a wonderful array of dishes. The cook can prepare anything from snacks up to five-course dinners, or other requests as required. Guests can opt to dine in the air-conditioned comfort of the living and dining room, which is the also the perfect setting for a dinner party. Alternatively, for a more intimate or casual experience, the open-sided dining bale in the garden is a lovely spot to enjoy breakfast, alfresco lunches or casual barbeques. Many Western meals are available, but guests are also recommended to sample some of the local Balinese and Indonesian dishes for a unique cultural experience. The cook will strive to fulfill any special dietary requirements or requests for dishes that are not on the menu. Dinner parties and small functions can all catered within the villa for small groups. All beverages are charged per drink, except for wine which is charged by the bottle. Any special beverage orders will also be accommodated.
Food items and non-alcoholic beverages are charged on the basis of a grocery cost system (+ additional 20% service charge added to groceries bill). Guests will be requested to provide grocery money in advance, and the staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference. To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is a good idea to plan meals the evening before.
Special Requests & Dietary Requirements
Should you have a request for a dish not on the menu, or a special dietary requirement, please feel free to ask the chef, who will strive to comply with all of your wishes.
Large Dining Groups
While the villa has large food preparation areas, it is not a restaurant and cannot support each individual guest ordering different foods for same dining periods. If you have a large group it is advisable that the group dines on the same dish or that you order several dishes to be shared. Please allow at least one day’s notice, and feel free to discuss any requirements with the chef or villa manager.
