Perhaps the most influential eating strip on the island, Seminyak offers a restaurant experience for every occasion. You’re unlikely to make any new discoveries, but this locale is home to the island’s most consistent performers.
Merah Putih offers both traditional and modern Indonesian cuisine, surrounded by gorgeous architecture and beautifully crafted food. Try a coconut espresso martini, or a white-chocolate martini. You can thank us later.
Mamasan will whisk you back to colonial Shanghai in the 1920s. Think marble mahjong tables, with oversized tan-leather Chesterfield chairs and reclaimed timber wine racks. The food draws inspiration from Southeast Asia.
La Lucciola is perhaps the most established and well-respected restaurant in Seminyak. Lovingly referred to as “La Looch”, it offers classic Mediterranean fare, with complementary Asian flavours.
Sardine is housed inside a striking bamboo structure, overlooking a field of rice paddies, and is a tranquil setting for afternoon drinks or an evening meal. Check out the pond, home to a school of rare white Koi Carp which the chef insists are only for ambience.
Bikini is a new restaurant in Seminyak, and quickly become one of our favourites! A collision of technique and flavour, eating at Bikini is a re-discovery of shared plate dining. Inspired by the seasonal produce of the island, their inventive dishes are an expression of contrast, texture and after-five attitude.
Sangsaka Restaurant is a new addition to the Bali dining scene from the team behind Merah Putih. It offers dishes that use traditional flavours to gain a broader experience of Indonesian cuisine.
