WOOD FIRE BISTRO WITH A SPEAKEASY FEEL PROVIDING A MODERN AUSTRALIAN MENU.
For celebrity chef Will Meyrick, this wood-fired bistro is based around Modern Australian dining, a result of his recent time spent based in Australia.
At Honey and Smoke, the chargrill is the hero. “Cooking with charcoal or wood fire just creates a much better flavour. It’s a really natural thing for us to install here in Ubud. Our food is blessed by the fire”

While fire is the kitchen’s focus, that’s not to say that Honey and Smoke is a steak restaurant.
Dishes are varied with guests invited to tuck into the likes of Grilled Scallops topped with chilli butter, dried mint yoghurt, and sumac, joined by Charred Corn with honeycomb, pine nut and whipped feta. Mains extend into Wood-Fired Grouper served alongside kacang lima, charred kale, and miso beurre blanc.
The interiors themselves are just as note-worthy as the fare. Inspired by the famously stylistic films of director Wes Anderson, Honey and Smoke is a vibrantly dressed venue which was dreamt up by Will himself, in collaboration with Mirah Group.
You’re On A Journey
“We really wanted to create an experience,” says Will Meyrick, “so we decided to build a 1920s-style train carriage with an outside staircase which goes all the way up to the second floor. It feels like you’re on a journey, a culinary journey. Hence why there are so many connotations of trains and travel, like luggage racks filled with actual luggage.” Antique accents, like teak flooring and rustic doorways help to complete the scene and amplify the speakeasy atmosphere of the Ubud venue.
