New opeNINg: The new SIp Sunset grill on Sunset (Bali) is a MUST. Fabulous food, great service, cosy ambiance and does not burn a hole in your pocket. put it on your list of restaurants to go to you won’t be disappointed. It also has on the display THe MoST expensive bottle of white wine – an 1811 Chateau de Yquem it only cost $117,000.00. aBSolUTe FavoUrITe reSTaUraNTS (all in Seminyak): • BEST MARGEURITA:
Red Carpet Champagne Bar, 42c Jl Laksmana. Looks a little hot (as in heat) for during the day, but before or after dinner, this is a fun place. In addition to the hugest champagne wine list ever seen, the cocktails are amazing. Won’t explain why, just go try. They are around AUD $10.00 each. Free yummy hors douvres come round through the night. Interesting mix of people.

• BEST RESTAURAnT foR A poSh nIGhT oUT:
Metis on Jl Raya Petitenget. Just opened in October 09, same owners as the old Kafe Warisan. Wonderful oppulent decor and worth going just for drinks as the drinks area overlooks the padi (rice) fields. Brilliant international food and it is possible to bring along a good bottle of wine for around $25 corkage if you managed to get it through customs. Five star all the way. Best to book as always popular.

• BEST RESTAURAnT foR food And plAcE To BE “SEEn”:
Sarong, Jl Petitenget No 19X, Korobokan 0361 737 809. Class all the way. Drop in for cocktails and tapas or dim sum or book a table for dinner. One of the newer restaurants in Bali and the decor is unique and eclectic. Chef is Will Meyrick, who started Blossom restaurant. Great food, Thai meets Indian meets Chinese. Amazing loos.

Chandi: Jl. Laksmana no 72, Seminyak, Bali, 8036, +62 361 731 060, info@chandibali.com Favourite food place at the moment and very good value for money wine prices (in Bali). Cocktails worth trying and bar open til 3am. Love, love, love this place. Very busy so book ahead.

• BEST BREAkfAST:
Either Grocer & Grind or Ku De Ta (see reviews in the Seminyak section).

• BEST coffEE:
Cafe Mocha on Jl Raya Seminyak. Airconditioned or outside. Always full of expats and europeans.

• BEST TApAS:
La Sal. Jalan Drupadi, more Legian than Seminyak, just off Jl Dynapura. Bali’s top Spanish restaurant. Great tapas and paellas etc. We had a selection of tapas (about 6 for three people) and it was enough. They do some great BBQ meat dishes too. Didn’t get to try the paellas, but friends said other dishes on menu were better. Fantastic classy decor. Worth booking as is usually busy. It’s just down the road from the Sorisso restaurant.
