Tel: 62 361 857 0888's insider take:

You may not have come to Bali for high tea, but after a stop at Biku, you just might build your day around it. Run by members of the royal family of Ubud, the restaurant occupies a 150-year-old hand-carved wooden house from Java. Lunch and dinner feature a satisfying choice of Indonesian classics and hearty Western fare, plus scrumptious Aussie meat pies. The tea menu, created by the owner's son/tea master Tjok Gede, is an education in local and international leaves. The brew is served with Ritz-worthy finesse and is accompanied by strawberries and cream, scones, finger sandwiches, and homemade cakes and pies. A corner of the restaurant is occupied by Ganesha Bookshop, which has a fine selection of antiquarian books, new publications about the region, and page-turners for the beach.—Jamie James
