Candidasa French restaurant Le Quarante Huit

Candidasa French restaurant Le Quarante Huit

Set beside a broad expanse of lily ponds, Candidasa French restaurant Le Quarante Huit (Le 48) is part of Le 48 “zen and happy” resort in Candidasa, Bali. On the main street of Candidasa, (pronounced Chandidasa) in north eastern Bali, le quarante huit French restaurant is a very pleasant surprise.

French exotic menu, Fusion Food the blackboard says. European in style and who it attracts. Looks luxurious yet cheap compared to similar in the Kuta Canggu strip. Cocktails around 45k with most main courses similar.

Prices of cocktails this low suggests the liberal use of Bali arak, the local liquer that gets flavoured to taste. The food portions were small but very tasty served on large plates. Mmmm

Large wine glasses. The waitress pours wine over a white napkin. Lovely and clearly well trained.

On a night when most restaurants are empty, with many completely empty and others with only one or two customers and the staff outside trying to attract some trade, le quarante huit is 75% full with a pretty constant flow of sophisticated customers.

It also seems like most guests are regulars as they know where they are going when they arrive.

My cocktail, a signature le quarante huit Candidasa Bali restaurant tequila ginger and lime concoction, was delicious. The welcome orderves were served in a shot glass – an indication of the restaurant’s style.

Ambience is lovely: private enough for a romantic dinner or dinner with friends. Beautifully designed, the acoustics allow intimacy and frivolity together.

With cocktail, a bottle of water, main course and super rich chocolate mousse, the total bill came to 150 including tip which I found very reasonable.

Quite surprising really considering the style of le quarante huit Candidasa Bali French restaurant.

Candidasa French restaurant Le Quarante Huit (Le 48) is not a place to bring kids to tho. There was a bunch of very bored French kids the night I was there who I am sure would have preferred staying at home with a pizza!!.

For sure in my list of top 100 Bali restaurants and my top 10 Bali French restaurants.

I had a bit of an allergic reaction to the chocolate mousse which meant a severe runny nose for a day or so.

This happened once before somewhere else, so I think there is some ingredient used in chocolate mousse in Bali that is not used in non-tropical climates – maybe a thickener required in the humid conditions? Be wary.

Candidasa French restaurant Le Quarante Huit is a very nice French restaurant in Candidasa.

There were kids there who looked pretty bored, not so interesting for them.
