One of the most al­lur­ing sights in the world must be sun­light sparkling on a bright blue sea. This is the view from Seminyak Ital­ian Food's ve­randa – the In­dian Ocean, the famed Dou­ble Six Beach and the hotel's freeform pool. It is an idyl­lic ac­com­pa­ni­ment to the tempt­ing aro­mas from the restau­rant, be it break­fast, lunch or din­ner.

While this beau­ti­fully lo­cated venue has long been renowned for its ex­cel­lent house­made pas­tas, gor­geous arancini, Ital­ian cold cuts and tiramisu, it is less well-known for its hearty break­fasts. Made-to-or­der,

hotel and out­side guests are free to choose what they like and as much as they like, with of­fer­ings span­ning the globe from Ital­ian cof­fee and choco­late milk, fo­cac­cia, bom­boloni dough­nuts and pas­tries, to gluten-free, su­per foods, fruit juices and boosts, av­o­cado on toast, as well as stan­dards like eggs a myr­iad of ways. More un­ex­pected twists come with the United Flavours of Dou­ble Six, fea­tur­ing plat­ters of Ko­rean, Mex­i­can, Rus­sian, French and In­done­sian break­fasts, along­side the full English and an In­dian plat­ter of soft dosa, veg­etable ko­rma, spinach pa­neer and but­ter chicken. The most re­cent ad­di­tion is The 66 Hot Dim Sum, served fresh from a cart with dim sum choices that vary day to day.

If you miss break­fast, don't worry, we highly rec­om­mend lunch and din­ner at Seminyak Ital­ian Food. For a change from the usual choices, it is re­ally worth try­ing the Spaghetti Von­gole. This dish sees fresh clams, cour­gettes and their blos­soms perch­ing atop spaghetti drenched in gar­lic, white wine and pars­ley for a nu­tri­tious meal that doesn't sit heav­ily on your stom­ach.

Our favourite main course, how­ever, has to be the de­light­fully sim­ple and very fresh sea bass. A pan-fried fil­let is served with just a green salad, red radish salad and tomato salsa. Sim­ply de­li­cious.

On a more in­tri­cate note, the lime torta is a photo-wor­thy dessert that is tart enough to con­trast beau­ti­fully with the co­conut gelato it is served with. The torta is served with a bright red lacy wafer and ac­com­pa­nied by the gelato served over dry ice, a jug of lime syrup and three styles of co­conut for a re­fresh­ing, pretty end to your meal.
