So I finally went to this much hyped spot on Seminyak beach. Its location on top of Anantara hotel is, to say the least, ideal. However, if I were to be the executive chef or management team of this establishment; I should be more than concerned regarding the quality of its food.
It advertises designer dining, but when I went there, no sign of dining business was evident.
My companions and I decided to enjoy the libation and light food instead; typical cocktail list, but not so reasonable prices (USD$13 avg) and a tapas menu only (at least that was what's given to us). The cocktails....typical, espresso martini (decent and strong), Moscow mule (predictable), however, when it comes time to savour the tapas style food........S.O.S! The red pepper hummus and eggplant dip, tasteless. The Roast duck in rice paper concoction, nauseating. The mixed sate, was very good.
The ambience.....while a great view of the sunset over the Indian ocean from app.50ft up was great, but its cold and stiff decor made it boring real fast!
The service, well.....decent as there is not much to it.
The verdict - unless you're here by yourself, trying to escape the world and stare into a sea of nothingness.....this is the place!
