Executive Chef Miles Belfield

Miles Belfield is regarded as one of the most exciting additions to the Bali culinary scene. Originally from Bahamas and raised in the UK, Miles brings with him many years of experience in top-level gastronomy.

He has worked in several prestigious, Michelin star and award-winning restaurants, broadening his skills alongside the foremost chefs in the business. Anantara, Karma Kandara, bisma eight in Bali, Bordeaux Quay in Bristol, Edilino Italian Restaurant in London and the Quartier Vert in Bristol are just a few of them. He also worked two years in the Caribbean at two five star resorts.

Miles’ approach to cooking is ingredient-driven and sustainability and eco-friendliness rank high on his list of priorities. As for his influences, they are as eclectic and sophisticated as his cooking. “As a young chef learning my trade in London I was very inspired by Marco Pierre White who I still feel is the Godfather of modern cooking In England,” he explains. “As I have matured, I have become more of a purist – I love Elizabeth David, whose cooking style and menu creation are a kind of culinary storytelling.”

Meet our Head Chef, Wayan Sukarta

Wayan was born in Tampaksiring to a family of cooks where recipes were passed from one generation to the next. Therefore, Wayan’s decision to become a cook himself was not a big surprise. He is always eager to learn, to create something new and to make experiments. His passion for his métier and for bridges shows on your plate!

After his studies, he went abroad and gained experience by working in Kuwait, the Seychelles, Miami as well as on cruise ships and in well-known restaurants in Bali. Wayan joined bridges in 2014 and was promoted to Head Chef in May 2015. This position was a welcome challenge to him and he is eager to be a good example for his team. Obviously, he is doing a good job about it as he is well loved and respected by everyone.

Wayan likes to spend his free time out in the nature, gardening, growing vegetables, taking care of his pets and being with his family. He and his wife are expecting their second child very shortly. He also likes to do sports.

By the way, his favourite dish from our current menu is the Lamb Trio, three delicious variations of lamb, giving an interesting bouquet of tastes.
