Selama lima tahun Johnny menghabiskan waktu tinggal & berselancar di Bali, dia juga menjelajahi berbagai daerah di Indonesia tetapi tidak menemukan pilihan yang baik untuk masakan asli Tex-Mex. Johnny memutuskan bahwa ada peluang bagus untuk memulai sebuah restoran di Kuta dan membagikan kecintaannya pada seni kuliner dengan penduduk di daerah tersebut. Johnny menghubungi teman lamanya, Don, untuk membantunya mendirikan restoran. Dari gabungan dua nama, Don dan John, merek Don Juan di Kuta lahir dengan nama “Juan” adalah John versi Spanyol. “Don Juan” juga merupakan tokoh fiksi terkenal pada tahun 1630, seorang wanita yang lancar berbicara di Spanyol dan Italia yang Mozart berganti nama menjadi Don Giovanni pada tahun 1787. Dan mulai tahun 2019, warisan legendaris Don Juan tentang ‘mengejarkesenangan, kebahagiaan, dan petualangan berlanjut di Kuta, Bali.

Don Juan Mexican Restaurant and Bar memiliki dua lantai dengan banyak spot foto yang menarik. Ada lukisan dengan makna tertentu dan dimiliki oleh Johhny sendiri. Ada gambar Frida Kahlo, seniman Meksiko terkenal, dilukis dengan dua anjing peliharaan Johnny di sampingnya. Ada pula lukisan yang menggambarkan kehidupan Johnny saat mendapat ide untuk mendirikan restoran ini.

Baru saja dimulai pada Agustus 2019, tidak banyak waktu bagi merek untuk berkembang sebelum dampak buruk Covid-19 mendarat di Bali. Dan sayangnya, Kabupaten Kuta menjadi daerah yang terkena dampak terparah di Bali. Meskipun mengalami masa-masa sulit, Don Juan tetap buka sepanjang pandemi, dengan setia melayani penduduk lokal dengan masakan Meksiko yang lezat dan otentik, yang disiapkan segar setiap hari oleh Johnny dan timnya.

Don Juan Mexican Restaurant and Bar juga memiliki banyak promo menarik. Saat ini, pada hari Selasa dan Kamis, taco hanya seharga Rp15.000. Aspek unik dari taco Don Juan yang membuatnya berbeda dengan taco lainnya adalah tortilla lembut jagung putihnya, seperti yang ditawarkan di jalanan Meksiko.
Ada juga cheesecake buatan sendiri yang sangat enak untuk dinikmati dengan segelas anggur. Kekayaan dan keanggunan rasa krim keju dipadukan dengan sedikit sentuhan kulit lemon menjadikannya sangat menyegarkan dan kaya rasa. Don Juan juga memiliki banyak promosi minuman yang sangat baik dan terjangkau. Saat ini, bir Bintang hanya Rp20.000 per botol, anggur Hatten Rp25.000 per gelas, dan margarita berbahan dasar tequila impor mulai dari Rp55.000 per gelas.

During the five years Johnny has spent living & surfing in Bali, he also explored different parts of Indonesia but did not find any good options for authentic Tex-Mex cuisine. Johnny decided there was a good opportunity to start a restaurant in Kuta and share his passion for the culinary art with the population in the area. Johnny contacted his long time friend, Don, to help him establishing the restaurant. From the combination of the two names, Don and John, the brand Don Juan in Kuta was born as “Juan” is the Spanish version of John. “Don Juan” was also a famous fiction figure in 1630, a smooth talking womanizer in Spain and Italy whom Mozart renamed as Don Giovanni in 1787.
