Corner House - Breakfast Seminyak

By Jakarta100bars →
Corner House is a resuscitated restaurant located at the end of Jalan Oberoi, at the intersection with Jalan Drupadi. It burned down a couple of years ago (it was called Corner Store) and it just opened again today (June 22nd 2014). It was a popular breakfast place back then, and it seems that it will be even more crowded now. They improved the design and the menu, making it the place to be in Seminyak on Sunday mornings for expatriates. The owners are a mixed couple French and Australian, Magali Pascal a fashion designer and Matt Neville, a photographer. There is now a second floor and they also open for lunch and dinner. Even though the Corner House looks great, it is almost a copy of some existing restaurants such as Le Bistrot, Petitenget or Loewy in Jakarta. I wouldn't give them too much credit for originality. Also, they pushed the vintage theme a bit far, especially by putting old black and white picture of people on the walls near the toilet. I vis

KZU - Cheap Healthy Restaurant Bali

By Jakarta100bars →
There are two KZU restaurants in Seminyak, one on Sunset Road and one on Jalan Drupadi. They are headed by a young Japanese Chef, Kazuya Takami. In both places, you will find the best selection of cheap food in Bali: Indonesian, Western, Japanese, Indian... The branch in Drupadi is famous for its Nasi Campur, while the other one has a larger menu with an outside barbecue. I usually visit KZU to eat some great healthy salads under 5$. Mixed Salad + Quinoa Salad = 32,000rp NET Overall : Very recommended if you are looking for an inexpensive place to eat healthy food in Seminyak. It is not fancy but the service is friendly and it is clean. KZU Restaurant (Nasi Campur) Jalan Drupadi 2 No 84, Seminyak, Bali , Indonesia KZU Restaurant and Grill Jalan Sunset Road 6 (opposite of Burger King) Phone number: +62 (0) 361 805 4252  or +62 (0) 878-6053-7373

Superman Pizza (Seminyak Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Superman Pizza is a locally-run restaurant on Jalan Drupadi, Seminyak. They serve mostly pastas and pizzas, cooked in a wood-fired oven.  Superman, the owner of the restaurant, is an easy-going Balinese who chats with guests, take orders, and manage the place in his own way. As a result, the quality of your service or your food is not always consistent. They also often run out of ingredients or drinks. The staff was friendly, but Kuta-style, calling you "dude" or "bro", which is not my kind of thing. Australians and surfers would feel more comfortable probably. Romana Pizza (Rp65,000+15%) The pizza I tried was good (Romana Rp65,000+15%), very thin and crispy. It could have been better with a bit more tomato sauce and toppings, but I was happy enough. The price is reasonable.

Café Seminyak & La Boulangerie de Bali

By Jakarta100bars →
Café Seminyak is a popular restaurant on Jalan Raya Seminyak, strategically located next to Bintang supermarket. It also has a bakery/pastry shop called "La Boulangerie de Bali". My first impression of the café was not good. The staff was overwhelmed and it seemed there was no management inside. It was hard to get attention from the waitresses who were quite disorganized and not particularly friendly. I first ordered a Ricotta Salad, but I was told 5 minutes later there were no tomatoes left. I then asked for a Merguez Sandwich, and again 3 minutes later I was told there was no more baguette. Finally, I went for the Crepes Ham Cheese Mushroom and they were able to do it! Ham Cheese Mushroom Crêpe (Rp49,000+15% tax and service) In spite of this, I can understand the reasons behind the success of Café Seminyak. The menu is complete: They have French, Australian, American, Thai, Indian, Indian food and a long list of desserts, including home-made ice creams (se

Kebun Zibiru Cucina Italiana (Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Kebun Ziburu is an Italian restaurant owned by a young Italian man, Luigi Calcagno. It is located on Jalan Drupadi in Seminyak, inside a small house with a garden (kebun in Indonesian). I went there on an evening when they had a live Jazz event so it gave me an excellent first impression. The young Italian manager, Mauro Piludu welcomed me personally before taking my food order, which was even nicer. All this gave me high expectations for the food, which did not seem too expensive at first. I had a 3-course meal with Carpaccio di Filetto di Vitella (Rp75,000++), the Zibiru Salad (Rp77,000++) and the Tarte aux Pommes (Apple Tart, Rp42,000++).  Carpaccio

Sundara Beach Club (Four Seasons Jimbaran)

By Jakarta100bars →
Sundara, the beach club attached to the Four Seasons Hotel in Jimbaran, opened in 2013 with the ambition of becoming the Ku De Ta of Southern Bali. They built it on the ruins of JPs, the previous beach restaurant of the hotel.  The owners spared no expenses to reach this objective. The designer team, also behind the Rock Bar in Ayana did a truly great job. Sundara is one of the best-looking restaurants I have seen in Bali. It is fancy and luxurious, but not too pretentious. It has an outside area with a long swimming pool, and an air-con area with a bar and comfortable leather sofas. You will get a nice view on Jimbaran beach, especially at sunset time. Before the opening, they brought in an army of foreign consultants for cocktails, wines, food, etc... Even now, they still have at least 3 foreigners to manage it: The Director of Operations, the Chef, and the Sommelier. The service is impressive. You are taken care of by friendly hostesses from the moment you step

La Sal Spanish Restaurant (Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
La Sal is a Spanish restaurant located on Jalan Drupadi, in Seminyak, Bali. It is owned by two men from Spain/Argentina: Lino De Zordo in the kitchen and Gonzalo Sanchez to manage the operations. You should have a good chance to see them around talking to customers.  The restaurant is rather large, partially in the open-air, with a bar area in the corner inside. There is nothing really special about the design but it is neat. It would be nicer if it was smaller I think, with less tables. The current look is similar to a canteen, with the same tables lining up one after another. La Sal serves Tapas and South American-style meat grilled on the barbecue they have in the garden. I had several Tapas and a soup. The Mushrooms, the Boiled Octopus and the Gazpacho were very good, but the Lamb Skewers were quite hard to chew. The prices are on the higher end: A full meal should cost you around Rp300,000-Rp500,000 without wine. I thought it was a bit too much considering my overa

Sun Shoot Café (Seminyak)

By Jakarta100bars →
Sun Shoot is a neighborhood restaurant/café popular with expats living in the Kerobokan area in Bali. It serves a long list of Western and Asian dishes that I found excellent for their prices. It is owned by an Australian guy who is also behind the nearby Tukit Villas . The service is quite good for such a small place: They even bring you cold towels on arrival.  Sun Shoot is always full on weekend nights. They have live music from time to time, and they also have a large screen TV to broadcast the most important sporting events.  Overall : Recommended for breakfast/lunch/dinner or for hanging out if you live nearby.  Sun Shoot Bali
