Balibó Fort Restaurant & Dining

Diza @ Balibó

The hotel’s casual restaurant, Diza@Balibo, like its more formal sister restaurant Diza in Dili, offers a blend of Timorese and Portuguese flavours.  Complemented by western favourites like pizzas and sandwiches, the menu has something for everyone.

Offering a choice of indoor, verandah or garden seating, all with panoramic ocean views, Diza@Balibo is perfect for a casual Sunday a la carte lunch or a special occasion buffet with a difference.

All of the restaurant’s produce is sourced locally wherever possible, ensuring the freshest ingredients and supporting local growers.  Diza@Balibo can cater for groups as large as 150, so contact us today to discuss how we can make your wedding, birthday, party or conference even more special.

Our fully licensed bar stocks a range of beer, wine, cocktails and spirits to complete a memorable sunset or an evening dining under the stars.
