Lembeh Resort Food


Experience exquisite dining with us in Lembeh. Sumptuous breakfast and lunch time buffets followed by 4 course al a carte evening dinners. Locally sourced and artisanally grown, fresh produce delivered daily.

Lembeh Resort is extremely fortunate to benefit from the local artisanal farmers of North Sulawesi who produce the freshest tropical vegetables and fruits throughout the year. In addition to fruits and vegetables, the bountiful Celebes Sea offers some of the highest quality seafood in Indonesia. To ensure genuine freshness the resort receives daily deliveries of locally grown produce, much of which is cultivated with traditional and organic methods.

Our fish is line-caught, which we purchase every morning from small scale local fisheries. By choosing to acquire our seafood locally we can guarantee absolute freshness.

Our spacious and charming restaurant is our main dining area which is located centrally within the resort with beautiful views of the Lembeh Strait. It is on the upper level of the main building and is open from 7 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Breakfast is served as a buffet with a wide variety of fresh tropical fruits, healthy juices, freshly baked breads, imported cheese, cereals, yogurts & oven-fresh pastries. The breakfast menu is a mix of both western and local dishes. Pancakes, waffles, french toast and eggs of any style is made á la minute to your liking.

Lunch is usually served as a buffet with an assortment of fresh salads, soup, western and Indonesian hot dishes and homemade desserts. Our buffets are plentiful and special dietary needs or preferences can be catered for. Our daily á la minute cooking station prepares an incredible array of specials cooked to order. We aim to offer you the best possible dining experience in Lembeh.

Our menus change daily to ensure variation and guarantee freshness.

Dinner is served á la carte. Our chefs prepare a wide selection of international & Indonesian cuisine catering to all tastes. In the evenings you will be presented with a 4 course menu which offers several options for all courses.

Morning and afternoon snacks are served between dives. A range of teas and coffees are available throughout the day in the dining area and at the pool-bar.

In addition to the daily dining menu we offer regular Indonesian BBQ nights where you can enjoy a delicious spread of authentic Indonesian dishes. This is a wonderful chance to try local specialty dishes while being entertained with song and dance performed by our local Sunday school choir. The choir is sponsored by Lembeh Resort and the children receive funding through donations.

Our poolside bar is one of the best spots to enjoy the view over Lembeh Strait between dives or gather with friends for sunset. You can chat with other guests and share your muck diving experiences, have a drink while watching the sunset, or simply stargaze after dinner.
