Petitenget channels the old-world charm and easy elegance of the bistros on the Côte d'Azur and Amalfi Coast. The shaded terrace overlooks the 500-year-old Petitenget Temple and is just footsteps from the roaring ocean beach. The restaurant is ideal for sunny breakfasts, languid lunches and stylish dinners, blending Asian, French and Mediterranean influences.
Australian chef Simon Blaby’s homemade toasted granola, served parfait-like with layers of sweet pineapple, strawberries, mango and dollops of coconut yoghurt threatens to ruin all future granolas but it’s so good: have it anyway. Here, they are firm believers in the “farm-to-fork philosophy”: sample freshly plucked zucchini blossoms filled with cauliflower and blue cheese or barbecued tiger prawns, adorned with mint, coriander, pomelo, red chilli and ginger dressing. Kids are welcome and get their own menu – and for caffeine addicts, the baristas whip up one of the best lattes on the island.
Seminyak is Bali’s cosmopolitan hub with exclusive boutiques, luxury beachfront resorts and the island’s “eat street”, a buzzing district brimming with world-class restaurants. Catch a legendary Seminyak sunset while sipping a designer cocktail at one of the hip beach clubs or sink into a beanbag with a Bintang at a casual beach bar on the sand.
