Petitenget restaurants are emerging as Petitenget becomes the new hot spot in Bali. For a while now many tourists still refer to the area as Seminyak however the locals and expats refer to it as Petitenget. There are fantastic new restaurants popping up here everywhere and you simply must try a few while you are here in Bali. If you are heading to Batubelig from Seminyak just past Potato Head this is Petitenget.
Petitenget – one of my favourites. French-ish menu, different dishes. Sometimes exotic, always good. Food and movie night every Tuesday at 8pm.
Metis – We were not blown away by the food (small portions) but the setting is pretty amazing. Located in Petitenget opposite Sardine.
Merah Putih – we went here for Valentine’s Day and had a great night. Indonesian food, great cocktails, amazing when raining as it has enormous internal drain pipes that collect rain from a cathedral-height ceiling. Definitely the one to visit on a rainy night. Also has great service by their team of staff.
Sardine – Definitely still one of the best restaurants on the island and would go back in a heart-beat any time! Especially when the rice paddies out the back are fully grown. Or visit their sister restaurant, Mama San in Seminyak.
Barbacoa – near Metis and Sardine and down the road from Sarong and Merah Putih (so competing side-by-side with the best). Limited menu, good tapas but not a big selection of healthy dishes or vegetables but perfect for meat lovers.
Sarong – one of the most popular restaurants, which you must book weeks in advance. International acclaimed chef and award winning restaurant. Yummy!
Charlie Bar & Bistro – a three storey building with a great vibe inside those red doors. It’s all about classic cosmopolitan bistro dishes reinvented with a gourmet twist.
