Favicon Cosmic Diner (Bali)
25 Jul 2014, 5:31 pm
Cosmic Diner is an American-style restaurant with 2 locations in Bali: One on Sunset Road next to McDonald's, and one in the new Lippo Mall on Jalan Kartika Plaza.

It is themed around 1960's USA with the use of bright, contrasting colors, oldies tunes, vintage posters on the wall and mostly American classic dishes (burgers, pancakes, waffles).

The prices are quite reasonable (and the portions small). One main course and a drink should not cost more than Rp100,000.
Fettucini Rucola (Rp49,000++)
Banana Pancakes (Rp33,000++)
I had the Fettucini Rucola (Rp49,000+15% tax and service) and the Banana Pancakes (Rp33,000+15%). It was rather average food in terms of taste, but it was presented nicely.

The service would need a bit more training. Everybody was friendly but it was hard to get the attention from the waiters.

Overall: Themed-restaurants are not really my thing, but they are popular with Indonesians. Cosmic Diner is no exception and when I visited it was almost full with a 100% local crowd. All were young people in their 20s. I can understand the appeal but personally I tend to prefer a restaurant with a focus on the food first.

Favicon Sirenetta Authentic Italian Restaurant - Bali
25 Jul 2014, 12:58 pm
Sirenetta is an Italian restaurant recently opened in Jalan Petitenget in Seminyak, Bali. It is owned by an Italian man from Napoli, the city where the original pizza comes from.

The place looks simple but authentic. It serves wood-fired oven pizzas, pastas and a few other international main courses.

We had a Margarita Pizza (Rp45,000 +10%) and a Tuna Steak (I forgot the price but it was rather cheap).

I saw that the owner himself prepared the pizza and shoved it in the oven. It gave me high expectations and I wasn't disappointed! The pizza was fresh and tasted more authentic than any other pizzas I have tried in Bali so far.

I just had a bite of the Tuna Steak, which seemed fine but not special.

Overall: Sirenetta may be one of the best restaurants for authentic Italian pizza in Bali. Not only it tastes great, it is also really cheap. Very recommended for their Italian food at least.

Favicon The Dusty Café - Seminyak - Bali
25 Jul 2014, 6:34 am
The Dusty may be the smallest café you will find in Bali. It was recently opened by a young Frenchman, Nicolas Vitetta. It is similar with a bar in Jakarta called Treehouse for those who know. The design combines classic items like the big chandeliers, with some cheaper, recycled ones. I'm not sure about the definition of hipster but it could be one of those places where they hang out.

Located just next to the bar Maria Magdalena in Jalan Dhyana Pura, it serves a small menu of mostly healthy food, including sandwiches and salads. 
"Party Belt" Bruschetta (Rp60,000+15%)
"Astral Totem" (Rp67,000+15%)
I had the "Party Belt", a duo of Bruschetta (quite expensive at Rp60,000+15%) and the Astral Totem, a Quinoa Salad (Rp65,000+15%). It was not fine dining but both tasted good and it was fresh.

Overall: The Dusty has all the ingredients to become a successful neighborhood restaurant. It has good food (albeit some items are too expensive), friendly staff, and a cosy atmosphere. I will be back!

Note: The Wifi was not working but I imagine it is because they are just starting.

Favicon La Finca Spanish Restaurant (Bali)
25 Jul 2014, 6:19 am
La Finca is a Spanish restaurant located near Batu Belig beach, between Seminyak and Canggu. It is owned by Thomas Mack, a young, mix German-Chinese man who previously lived in Ibiza. The Mediterranean island seemed to have been a big influence in the making of La Finca. 

Nestled in a spacious open-air area and surrounded by rice fields, it is relaxing and laid-back. It is also quite romantic if you come in the evening. Hopefully there won't be too many developments around so that it retains its peaceful rural charm...

I visited on a Sunday afternoon and it was not too busy... The menu is rather short: It features a variety of Tapas, Sandwiches, Hamburgers and Salads. They also have "Carne a la Piedra" = Beef that you can cook yourself on a hot stone.

We had the Carpaccio with Manchego Cheese (Rp69,000++), the Roasted Vegetable Tower (Rp45,000++), the Grilled Squid (Rp45,000++) and the Beef Meatball Sandwich (Rp69,000++).

Grilled Calamari (Rp45,000++)
Roasted Vegetable Tower (Rp45,000++)
Meatball Sandwich (Rp69,000++)
The prices are very reasonable and the presentation of each dishes was great. Unfortunately, out of 4, we only liked two of them. The Beef Meatball Sandwich in particular was really too salty and we left half of it in our plate.

Overall: La Finca is a nice, well-managed concept. It offers good value for money considering the setting and the service, but the taste of the food could be improved I believe. I would still definitely try again as it could have been just bad luck.

Favicon Bella Italia Restaurants (Bali)
23 Jul 2014, 5:13 pm
Bella Italia is an authentic Italian restaurant with currently 2 locations in Kuta Bali (Jalan Kartika Plaza and Jalan Poppies II). Both are rather small, with an AC indoor area and an outdoor area. They are simply decorated to look like the kind of typical, casual restaurant that you could certainly find almost everywhere in Italy. 

I visited Bella Italia after hearing some good comments from friends who assured me it was one of the best places for Italian food in Kuta. The owner is Italian, and he is on the floor almost every night, hosting and serving guests. I saw a second Italian man helping as well, probably a partner. 

I went to the branch in Kartika Plaza, which was almost full. It is probably best to make a reservation if you come with a small group. Since it is crowded, I found the service to be a bit rushed and it gave me a reminder of why I don't like to eat in central Kuta.
Bruschetta (Rp37,000++)
Margarita Pizza (Rp69,000++)
The prices are reasonable, but not too cheap for Bali. I took the pizza Margarita at Rp69,000 (+17% tax and service) and the bruschetta (Rp37,000++). The pizza could have been excellent but the cooking of the dough was not perfect and it was too soft. I think that it probably has to do with the type of oven they use (not a wood-fire one).

Overall: Bella Italia may be one of the best Italian restaurants in Kuta. It does not mean much though since the competition there isn't really hard. It is actually similar with some restaurants in Seminyak such as Ultimo, Warung Italia, Sirenetta or Pizza Marzano = It serves decent, affordable food in a simple atmosphere.
