Java Banana

Top choice fusion in Ijen Plateau

Set off the road up to Ijen from Banyuwangi, this restaurant, inside the upmarket Jiwa Jawa hotel, is a stunner, with a massive ground-floor gallery and an outdoor amphitheatre with spectacular volcano views. The menu is ambitious. Expect mains such as parrotfish in Mediterranean ragu, quail salad, and a nori-crusted rack of lamb.

Those who aren't guests of the hotel are welcome to dine, but it's advisable to call ahead and reserve.
