Sardine – seafood safari in Bali

Sardine is a far cry from the trashy, tourist rip off traps along Jimbaran Beach that many travellers to Bali flock to for a fresh seafood experience.

Whilst it is expensive by Bali standards, the quality of the seafood is absolutely top notch, as is the divine setting with views across their own rice paddy and small farm, but right at Jalan Petitenget 21 not far from the Seminyak action.

I have been to Sardine on a few occasions now and they have not failed to impress with the simple but perfectly spiced dishes, warm welcome, smiling and snappy service, and good drinks list. They have also kept up the standards that won them Best Restaurant in Seminyak in 2016 in the popularly voted Yak magazine awards.

The current menu offers delicious starters such as Manis (sweet) Clams cooked with chorizo and chilli and Mussels in coconut milk sauce. The shellfish does not disappoint and is cooked to perfection preserving its sweetness and texture.

One of my favourite mains is the whole filleted fish cooked Jimbaran Style on the grill and served with brown rice and Balinese sambal matah. Hamachi, a fish not often seen on menus in Australia or elsewhere, is also often a feature on the menu with seasonal changes to the sauce and accompaniments that best complement this fish.

If you want really great seafood in a great setting when in Seminyak, then Sardine will bring all your fishy dreams true.
