sunshine and fine food
Seminyak Italian Food offers outstanding Italian food and drinks for lunch and dinner, as well as a range of tantalising international breakfast dishes.
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.
