The perfect sunset experience

La Lucciola is the must dine restaurant in Bali. This little italian restaurant has not only been a huge favourite for the last ten years, but it is consistently good and continues to make the top ten restaurants list in Bali, year after year, no matter how many new glitzy competitors arrive on the scene.

Hidden in the car park of the Petitenget Temple, you cross a little bridge, at night festooned with candles, to arrive at the open air, wooden structure.

Looking onto Seminyak beach, it is the perfect spot to watch the sun go down, thought the restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. It is hugely popular, so you do need to book.

The staff and service is impeccable, and sarong clad, and the building structure a delightful wall-less wooden bungalow. The overall effect is fine-dining without the formality, yet in no way is the experience diminished.

There is also a little bar if you choose to arrive early for a pre-dinner drink.

The menu changes but I had a superb fettuccine with prawns (in a chilli and tomato sauce) and my partner had a fish, cooked in a bag which he devoured so quickly I forgot to note what exactly it was, but he did state it was excellent, as always.

There is a long dessert list, but due to the filling mains, we settled on only the homemade sorbet. A simply fabulous way to finish the evening.

Bali offers a myriad of dining experiences, but on location, ambiance and cuisine, La Lucciola wins the lot hands down. It is everything you want an island paradise dining experience to be.
