July 25th, 2014
Kitchenette Restaurant & Crêperie is a popular casual restaurant and all day cafe that has its roots in Jakarta with three outlets, and first opened in Bali in 2012. An appealing dining concept from the Jakarta-based Ismaya Group (the team behind mega-popular venues in Jakarta like SKYE and Social House). Conveniently located on the street frontage of the modern beachwalk lifestyle mall overlooking Kuta Beach, Kitchenette serves home-cooked style dishes all day, with many options from the extensive menu perfect for brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, or light refreshments at anytime of the day or evening. A tantalising variety of beverages include gourmet coffee, healthy smoothies & fruit juices, and smoothies; while the bar entices with a compact list of “wicked elixir” cocktails, beer, wine and champagne.
Exuding a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, Kitchenette attracts a steady stream of customers all day looking for healthy nourishment and refreshing drinks- and a welcoming respite from the bustling streets of Kuta. Kitchenette has dual entrances- principally from the street front promenade- but also with direct access from inside the mall- and opens daily from 9 am until 11 pm ( midnight on weekends).
Accordant with its Kitchenette title- and concept of home-style cooking- the decor has a distinctly kitchen-themed direction with cooking utensils and kitchen accessories deployed extensively as decorative features, and the compact open kitchen connects patrons with the cooking team. The elongated interior space features several sections of casual cafe tables and banquette settings, back- dropped with oversize wall mirrors and menu chalkboards. At the promenade frontage- open air tables and daybeds on the terrace offer ideal people watching opportunities.
