Authentic French regional cuisine is its culinary identity enhanced by one of the most comprehensive wine lists in Indonesia, offering no less than 16 wines by the glass, daily.SIP thrives to maintain its reputation of ‘high quality-affordable’ bistro/brasserie with a perky ambience, providing a truthful and relevant piece of Paris in Bali.Gallic fun under the tropics!

“Absolutely Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Discovered and visited SIP restaurant on two occasions during a six night stay and DEFINITELY will return again and again! The food is French themed and absolutely delicious, with generous servings, very attentive, chatty staff and cook, wonderful ambience, presentation, service, etc, etc. Amazing to find a eatery of such high quality, reasonably priced fare, not in France, but in dear ol' Bali! A gastronomic Bonanza!

“So consistently good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

If you are looking for very good french cuisine, that's the place to go! Atmosphere, lay out, decoration, food and wines are good! I go quite often to Bali and regularly go there. Since the variety of the menu is pretty good, i never get bored!
Escargots are great, cassoulet, duck... All dishes are good!
For the wines, you will find a good range of prices and don't worry the owner knows very well what he is talking about when it's about wines!
Bon appetit!

Amazing to find a place like this and so reasonably priced!! Had the fixed menu and loved it. The best lemon soufflé ! Wine of the month was great too with excellent service and attention to detail.

“The Birthday dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

We booked well in advance of our trip and made certain to confirm the booking. It was a Friday night and when we arrived the place was bursting at the seams. Nothing wrong with that - except we were seated outside the toilets, on a very precarious step - complete with the yellow and black "caution" strip stuck on the edge! - where if you moved your chair back just a fraction you'd be legs up over the edge! We did advise the restaurant when we booked that it was a special occasion and we were disappointed with where we were seated. The service was rushed and less than personal. The food was, naturally, very good - with the exception of the dessert. I absolutely love a well cooked dessert souffle and was anticipating a treat! But this one was mostly egg white. This place is not cheap by even Perth standards so we expected a little more than we got. We've been to the brothers place down the road at Ginger Boy and found that a far better experience. Unfortunately, on this visit, Sip did not live up to our expectations. Next time we are in Bali we may (or may not) give it another try but maybe midweek.

“Undoubtedly the best restaurant in Seminyak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

If you think the title of my review says it all - it doesn't!!
SIP Wine Bar is an amazing dining experience for food lovers. The menu is so extensive and encompassing that it will have you go back there again and again to savour the absolutely delicious cuisine.
i started my meal with the Goat Cheese Salad (a personal favourite), I was persuaded to try the Escargots 'A La Parisienne' ( to 'die' for) and for my main meal - Pepper Steak (cooked to perfection) i wish i had room to eat more!!!
Of course i had beautiful french wine to complement my meal..
But hey! As i was filling my face with the food above i spied other diners enjoying the desserts. In fact i overheard a conversation that SIP served superb desserts. I was totally spoilt for choice. Creme Brûlée it was. I have never ever tasted anything sooooo good!
Let me add that apart from the super duper meal, the ambience, the entire staff and even their extremely busy French chef took the time and interest to ensure not only that i was enjoying the meal but every other customer in that very chic and tastefully decorated restaurant.
i say three cheers for SIP WINE BAR.... Don't miss out on this fabulous experience on your next trip to Bali....
