St Regis Boneka Brunch
Kawasan Pariwisata Nusa Dua
Nusa Dua, Bali 80363 Indonesia
Boneka is a restaurant in the posh St. Regis Hotel on Bali. We were in paradise and told by a friend that we had to try it. High end Sunday Brunch Buffet? We are there! This hotel is awesome, there would be no way we could afford to stay here.
We are fans of upscale buffets, not to overindulge in excess, but to have fun sampling a large cross section of fine foods. This buffet was a nice change of pace from our boring hotel’s breakfast buffet and all the Balinese food we had.
Decor, Vibe – St. Regis Boneka is an elegant room with colorful decor, live music, and a beautiful center piece. Lots of tourists along with some well-heeled locals were present.
The St. Regis Bali Sunday Brunch Buffet allows you to order off a special menu. Something that exists in many of the other top buffets around the world like our favorite, Conrad in Hong Kong.
There menu included 8 different egg dishes including Foie Gras (fair) and eggs, Wagyu Beef (OK) and eggs. We didn’t feel like eggs so we told them to give us some Foie Gras. They brought around pork belly, which was pretty darn good.
