There is a particular venue highlight that we have forgotten to post from Bali that we would love to share with you guys. So here it is...
We had passed along this place several times as it is relatively new, but never paid a visit. We finally had some time on our hands and it was time well spent as we had a lovely afternoon in this very chic and vintage cafe/lounge/restaurant. It's tucked and situated in the bustling and famous East Street in the Seminyak area, Bali. For those of you who may know, it's on the left side of the road right after Mamasan and just across from the Red Carpet bar/restaurant. When you first walk in, you're greeted by high ceilings and a very warm European ambiance. We absolutely loved the vintage decor with rustic wooden tables paired with the rich interior furnishings. From the opulently jeweled lighting to the beautiful vases of violet flowers placed on every table, it was a feast for the eyes. It's surprisingly spacious inside as from the outside it does not look as so.
Nothing beats tea and desserts for us and thats just what we ordered. We each ordered Jasmine tea, the chocolate mousse served with coconut sorbet, and a strawberry type dish with macaroons and vanilla ice cream. All in all, the desserts were quite delicious. The staff were satisfactional to an extent. They were welcoming, pleasant, and very friendly, however a bit short when it came to the content of the menus. We asked questions concerning what certain dishes consisted of and they were not quite up to date with the latest information. Other than that, we have no complaints. It's great for large group lunches or dinners as they do have larger tables on the first floor or just some tea and desserts with your girlfriends (like us!). We spent hours chatting and munching away! :p Bistrot is a fabulous place and we look forward to our next visit!
