“Beautiful Space.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We were a walk in on a busy Saturday night. Manager greeted and seated us with little fuss. Amazing warehouse space, serious attention to detail. Good attentive service. Solid bistro food, without being spectacular. Kitchen very fast. Only gripe please change vintages on the wine list. To order a 2008 Bordeaux and be given a 2011 is a little cheeky!

“Great interior design”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

No outside dining here but on a hot and humid night a perfect place for dinner as we found. The design is quirky but works brilliantly and love the mix of chandeliers, deco lights and other bits and pieces. The service is excellent complimenting the food quality and presentation. Reasonable wine selection and price range. Highly recommend a visit if dining in the Seminyak area.

“Unforgettable meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

What an amazing restaurant!

Positives:
1. The atmosphere and the design of the restaurant is beautiful. Definitely worth stopping by for a quick nibble just to see it.
2. Service was quick and efficient
3. I ordered a cosmopolitan and can safely say that it was the strongest (and therefore, the best) cocktail I've ever had in Bali. Goes to show they don't water down their liquor like many other restaurants do to save on money.
4. Entree was the calamari and the bread and dips. I have NEVER tasted calamari that was so soft and melt-in-you-mouth as I have at the Bistrot. I couldn't even believe what I was eating. The bread and dips was also delicious. I recommend them both.
5. Main course was also beautifully prepared and presented. I ordered the sticky pork ribs which came with a bowl of coleslaw. My mum ordered the red curry steak which came out as a slab of tender steak with a red curry sauce to dip it in. Both of us were very satisfied with our meals.
6. The only restaurant where we have been tempted to try dessert, we both ordered the vanilla bean creme brulee which was delicious and hit the spot.

Negatives:
1. You will NEED to make a reservation on most nights to guarantee a table.

Honestly, it was the most expensive dinner we've had with the total coming to around $90 AU, but considering that this covered two drinks, two entrees, two main courses and two desserts at the quality of the Bistrot, it's well worth the money. Would recommend to anyone willing to spend a little extra for a memorable night out.

“Good coffee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

Being from Melbourne we are fussy about coffee so when we travel to Asia we don't expect it but this place was the best we had in Bali. Breakfast was tasty but similar prices to Australia. The decor is amazing and it has a nice upstairs section too. Staff were friendly and service was fast. One to visit if you want a "western" hit on your visit to Bali.
