“Overhyped”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Don't want to be a meanie but for both my boyfriend and I this restaurant is not worth the hype. It is no doubt a great restaurant but not mind-blowing, it's just another nice restaurant. The service was good, food was great, we all loved the bread and butter. Since it was close by the villa we stayed at, otherwise don't bother to go to the area just for it.

“Great dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I have to start with the bread which was sooo good! And my starter and main course were almost perfect. We were so full and no more space for dessert. I like the open concept and the service was great. We spent the rest of the evening at the front terrace which is lovely.

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

One of the best meals we had during our honeymoon in Indonesia. The meals were beautiful, fresh, delicious and left us aching for more! Would 100% recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Seminyak and in search for good fish, you will not be disappointed!

The meals were generous as was Stevens time spent with us
The bread was amazing as we're the scallops as entre . The reef fish was generous in size and crispy skin sensational but the desert soufflé passion fruit left us extremely satisfied with our dining experience

“We will be back!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We went into Seminyak last night with the intention of going to an entirely different restaurant and when that one was fully booked, remembered I had seen Urchin on Trip advisor.
We walked in and were greeted warmly and promptly. Once seated we got menus and a wine list together with some yummy bread to get the taste buds going. For entree we had the edamame and the coddled egg, Wow the egg was outta this world. For main course I ordered the Crispy Snapper and my Fiancé the Black Angus beef. When these meals arrived accompanied by the fennel and Parmesan salad and green beans we both just devoured our meals. These meals were amazing!!
For desert we had the soufflé and Coconut and Coffee pudding and again we were blown away.
I have eaten at a lot of great restaurants and I have to say that if Urchin was in Melbourne for example it would easily be in the top three.
To sum up just a great dining experience with great service,fantastic food and ambience.
We'll done Steve and your team.
We will be back.
