“Elegant, fresh and delicious.”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Our flight was delayed on Monday, and so we were fortunate to squeeze in one more dinner before flying home, and we chose to dine at Urchin. We had mixed sashimi and scallops for our entrees. Scallops were cooked perfectly, and their flavour shone through with the simple accompaniments on the plate. The sashimi was fresh, delicious and just the right temperature. We then had prawns and snapper. The crisp skin on the snapper was divine, and the prawns were simply prepared, perfectly cooked and tasty.
The food here is beautifully prepared, and not overly fussy , so you can taste all the wonderful seafood flavors. Our desserts too, were fresh and light, the perfect finish to a fab meal. Attentive service and a great vibe in the restaurant. We will be back!

“New comer in Seminyak”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Just heard about this restaurant from tripadvisor. So we gave it a try last May.
First impression; nice setting and friendly staff. However the food was just ok, we expected more. There's no WOW factor on it.
For returning again next time? I don't think so.

“An awesome experience!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

I loved this restaurant in Bali. The only downside was we hadn't made reservations so we had to sit and eat at the bar. The manager waited on us and was a little busy, but still made our evening phenomenal. A lot of Aussies which was cool because we are american . The sushi was AMAZING. I wish they had a bigger selection but the menu changes every day. The drinks were delicious as well. Plus you get to watch them cook! I would recommend reserving a table close to the action!

“Best meal in Seminyak”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

Urchin is not to be missed! Every dish is prepared to set off your taste buds! Very well created and served food. Kathy is a wonderful host/manager, etc. Excellent cocktails and desserts too! A dinning highlight in Seminyak.

“Great Atmosphere, needs a little something more”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

The hostess is very personable, all staff are very attentive. I would like to say we were delighted with the food, it was indeed lovely, presentation was amazing - but there was something "not quite" there! My husband is not a big fan of seafood to start with, of course with the name "Urchin" probably an indication that not much more is on offer. We shared entrees of scallops and calamari - well presented, but both slightly bland in flavour. For mains, we both ordered the pork belly - again looked great on the plate, but didn't blow our socks off! I am trying not to be too critical - they are up against some strong competition in Seminyak - I think a couple of tweaks to their entree selection would be good. Urchin is also a new restaurant, and I think when we are back in Bali in November, they may have changed a couple of choices, which will be more appealing to a wider clientele.
