Mozaic Beachclub Debuts Casual Bali Beachside Dining

Mozaic Beachclub officially debuts its new brand with the launch of the ‘Today, Mozaic Beachclub’ ad campaign, introducing its smart casual dining concept at beautiful Pantai Batubelig (Batubelig Beach) in the Seminyak neighborhood of holiday hotspot Bali.

The 3,200 sqm beachside restaurant – known as the ‘wild child’ of the venerable, award-winning Mozaic Beachclub brand – creates a different type of excitement for foodies with multiple dining spaces and “sipping cocktail” lounge areas. The legendary Mozaic Beachclub brand was recently named one of San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants – Asia 2013 (the only restaurant in Indonesia to receive the distinction). It is also number five on Miele Guide’s top Asian restaurants for 2013, and is the second of only two restaurants in South East Asia to be recognized as a member of Les Grand Tables Du Monde.

And today, the newest member to the Mozaic Beachclub family of F&B brands welcomes a more spirited crowd, with a new menu in a modern but relaxed setting, to play all day on the pool deck and at night to savor an à la carte menu in the dining space – a menu that will constantly change with new dishes inspired by each day.

“While our commitment to the Mozaic Beachclub brand’s philosophy of using quality, local ingredients to create innovative flavors hasn’t changed, our new beachside brand is about to,” said James Ephraim, co-owner and chef of Mozaic Beachclub. “We welcome leisure travelers and local residents to breezier fare, full of distinctive flavors in a vibrant atmosphere.”

The UK-born Chef Ephraim started his career as a sous-chef with the highly-praised Grosvenor Hotel, catering exclusive events with regular appearances at the Estate of the Duke of Westminster. He ventured half way across the world to another island nation to open Bracu Restaurant in New Zealand as chef de cuisine, before transitioning to helm various restaurant establishments. He now continues the legacy created at the Ubud flagship by Co-owner and Chef Chris Salans.

“My original vision for Mozaic Beachclub Restaurant Gastronomique in Ubud will stay true and continue to serve its signature set tasting menus, but James and I wanted to create a different experience full of surprises for guests at the new restaurant,” says Chef Salans, the brainchild behind the Mozaic Beachclub brands. “After working with James for four years in Ubud, the time was right to branch out into a new beachside concept.” 

Chef Ephraim helms an all-star team of Indonesian and Singaporean chefs in what he calls his ‘dream kitchen’ – an open-design concept in the backdrop of the dining space that lends even more drama to a theatre-ready scene – preparing modern French cuisine infused with Balinese flavors, visually savored even before it reaches the table. Comprised of in- and outdoor spaces, Mozaic Beachclub’s dining areas can cater to more than 140 guests at any time in this multi-faceted venue.

Mozaic Beachclub’s design is committed to the destination, with Bali’s island-inspired motifs creating a seductive ambience night and day. Covered walks flank a dramatic entryway, while energy-inspired water surrounds ceramic urns, setting the stage for what is about to come.

On the beachside level, an airily-designed bar lounge in tones of white and seablue offsets the outdoor lounge pool and a sundeck where gazebo daybeds surround the 4.5 x 23 meter pool. From the beachside-level dining area up to a more intimate level, the space continues with expansive views of the sandy beach and sunset horizon beyond. Warm, softly flattering light romances evening’s dusk and night’s darkness, and highlights traditional textiles and Balinese heritage woodcarvings. Polished charcoal concrete establishes linear, geometric furnishings and high ceilings that are borne into the sky by tall pillars.

Food and design begin – but do not complete – the Mozaic Beachclub revolution. The new concept hosts music events, special-occasion gatherings and group functions. With a future expected seating capacity upwards of 200 people, the soon-to-be-opened third-floor rooftop will be a destination for listening to music, entertaining friends, or simple romantic stargazing. The entire restaurant space can be divided into separate areas as befitting an individual group’s requirements; including a private air-conditioned dining room that seats 20 guests.

Come for the cuisine, the space, the attentive staff and the beachside restaurant setting – inviting guests to gather, play, laugh – and eat.
