“Somehow French food works in the humidity!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The wine selection was great. Lots of options from around the world. Thank goodness the restaurant is air-conditioned as all the meals are so hot and heavy and "French". Portions are big. Service is really good. The decor very classic, woody and Frenchy.

“The best French Cuisine in Bali!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Sip
I discovered this hidden gem, by chance, walking in front of  Bintang Supermarket, in Seminyak.  It is a very discrete place. It is not belonging to the typical commercial places (so popular in Bali).  As soon as you enter you start noticing the differences... The decoration is very authentic and moves you a real Parisian Restaurant. The Menu is SUPERB! It is real haute cuisine!  We came to know that the Chef was the Chef in one of the best restaurants of Paris, with two Michelin stars.  The quality of food is unique. The  wine selection  is the best in Bali. The onion soup is the best I have tried, the pates and terrines unforgettable.  The desserts delicious,  the services very good. I recommend as one of the best french restaurants in Asia.

“Very very poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Good points: garden salad was good
Neutral points: red snapper and mojito were ok
Horrible points: décor, string beans and steak (wasn't even a rib eye as advertised, 50% fat)
Completely incongruent dining experience cf other Tripadvisor reviews

“All of us loved the set menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Made a point to return to this French restaurant this year. Sat outside on a table of 6. Did the set menu again because the full menu is too overwhelming. We are on hols so the least decisions we make - the better. Beef carpaccio was outstanding. Mahi Mahi was the best fish dish I had on this holiday. Couldn't eat the apple tartin dessert - too full. Took a young honeymoon couple and another couple and he is a Chef and it was their first visit to Sip. They all raved over it and said it was the best meal that had enjoyed in Bali. We all did the set menu but ordered different options. Service was unobtrusive yet efficient.
