Every Saturday and Sunday, Cut Catch Cucina restaurant at the Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort offers a weekend brunch which has to be seen to be believed. From made-to-order satays (you’re in Bali, after all) to Peking duck pancakes, perfectly pink roast beef and sushi galore, diners are spoiled for choice.

If you aren’t staying at the hotel, it is worth coming here to for brunch. In addition to all the beautiful food, there are live musical acts, a fashion parade and a separate kids play area ensure everyone is entertained in between all that eating and drinking. Even better, kids under 12 eat free and you are welcome to use the gorgeous Sofitel pools after lunch.

While the buffet seems to stretch on forever it is actually divided into three main sections (or four if you count the enormous dessert bar). Cut offers premium meats, from steak cuts such as Wagyu and Angus to grilled organic chicken. Catch serves seafood every which way, including freshly grilled lobster, while Cucina embraces la dolce vita with pastas, pizzas and a vast selection of antipasto.

Something we loved about this buffet brunch was the a la carte menu. Dishes off this menu come in tasting size portions that are not unlike those you would find at a fancy fine diner. We enjoyed ordering these dishes periodically throughout the afternoon as they seemed to arrive with perfect timing, just as we were thinking about getting up to visit the buffet again.
