Arriving at Gardin you would miss it if not looking carefully; coming from Seminyak it is on the stretch of road after Petitinget restaurant, on the left hand side, set back from the road. There you'll find a small simple sign announcing your arrival.

On a crazy busy tourist street, you can park right at the front where they will valet park your car or motorbike for you. Walking up the path, the building will surprise and amaze you with divine lead light windows.

If the idea of dining in a beautiful conservatory with charming decor suits you, you will love Gardin. You will be elegantly greeted and brought to your waiting table, where you may choose a la carte or high tea.

The a la carte menu is small but comprehensive. Focusing with a French flair, where you will find dishes such as escargot and tasting plates. The salads were exquisite and beautifully presented with a divine range of flavours.

But whether you are hungry enough to do mains and a dessert or just skip the mains and go straight to the desserts, it just cannot be done the other way around and when you see the sweets cabinet you will realise why.

Amazingly mouth watering cakes, puddings and desserts are lined up to tempt you. We tried the raspberry cheesecake and the Le Gardin which was like a rice pudding shaped into a cone and filled with fresh mango; both were melt in the mouth delicious.

Somewhat more expensive than the surrounding restaurants, but still affordable compared to Australian prices; for afternoon tea for 4 with non alcoholic drinks our bill came to around 440,000 ($44).

From 3pm to around 5pm high tea is served in true elegance.
With sandwiches, savoury dishes, cakes, cookies and scones it is a lovely way to while away the afternoon in true elegance.

Dine at Gardin - you will feel like royalty.
