Looking for that perfect spot to wine and dine your special person? Though Seminyak didn’t invent the romantic dinner date for two, it sure did perfect it. From secret rooftops to live jazz, from beachfront tables to decadent entrees and desserts, you are sure to look like the king or queen of romance by making reservations for two at one of the following culinary venues, all a short taxi ride away from your 1 bedroom villa.
It doesn’t get much more magical than the rooftop garden at Zibiru. Candlelit tables and the intimate ambience are reminiscent of a quaint cafe in the backstreets of Italy. Live jazz on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday adds to the already romantic mood here, and it sure helps that their authentic Italian food is delicious too!
Upon arrival to the Bambu you are led on a path of stepping stones over a scene of ponds and to your table located in an antique Joglo. The tables are spread apart nicely so you and your love can enjoy the tranquil surroundings just the two of you. The dishes here are a wonderful blend of Indonesian flavours and are excellent for sharing between a couple.
BREEZE at the Samaya
