AT W BALI – SEMINYAK
Beachfront dining doesn’t come any more stylish than at Starfish Bloo. As the flagship restaurant of the ever-trending W Bali – Seminyak, Starfish Bloo serves refreshing pan-Asian and Western delicacies, with each dish highlighting an innovative twist.
While the sumptuous Champagne Sunday brunch is probably what first comes to foodies’ minds upon the mention of Starfish Bloo - it is after all one of the most popular and beloved brunches in
Bali - its Friday evening seafood barbeque also deserves a nod of recognition, with an extensive selection of the freshest seafood including Irian Jaya king crabs, lobsters, clams and more.
Chef de Cuisine Ashley Garvey – simply going by Ash – is at the helm, and he shares his two cents on what makes Starfish Bloo an outstanding seafood dining destination, “I would say our venue has so much to offer, from luxury beachfront views to daily sourced seafood from the best suppliers on the island. We have a passionate culinary team that drives exciting dishes and delivers exceptionally friendly service. All this creates a unique experience that keeps people coming back over seven years. The restaurant delivers a world-class experience epically for those who are mad about seafood, it’s a pleasure to be at the helm of this culinary institution.”
Ash recommends Starfish Bloo’s seafood platter for the genre’s enthusiasts, where a bountiful array of fresh shellfish and sashimi slices is ready to be savoured. The seafood platter comes in two styles, chilled or Indonesian-style grilled – the choice is yours. The restaurant’s Kilpatrick-style oysters, on the other hand, incorporate a local touch by combining Balinese sambal with a smoked bacon and tabasco topping. Last but not least, no one should miss the crowd-pleaser that is tempura lobster with yuzu – Japanese citrus – espuma.
