Discreetly situated behind a beautiful temple but roadside on the very popular ‘Eat Street’ of the Seminyak area of southern Bali, this restaurant and bar has been conceptualized and lovingly put together by the formidable Morrocan and Belgian team of Zohra and Blaise. An impressive wooden and natural hewn stone air-conditioned yet high ceilinged open space, guests immediately feel welcomed upon entering and reminded of a New York loft/factory space with a distinct industrial feel.
This is a very metro meets retro feel. However, the interior furnishings are warm and accommodating, and pay homage to many antiques and artifacts sourced from around the Indonesian archipelago, most being from the couple’s personal collection. The upstairs bar, provides a space that Hemingway would be proud of, and the spacious restaurant area reminiscent of the chic Orient Express railway dining carriage. Bistrot is original, quirky, delicious and very ‘fairytale’ adult.
For sure, the discerning décor along with the charming team of staff will make sure you completely feel at home – be welcomed to the amazing world that is Bistrot and allow yourself to forget the fast, modern world outside, to be at peace in a bygone era of elegant sensuality.
Lit by a multitude of lamps by interior designers, and owners Zohra and Blaise's trademark style of lanterns, both opulent and dazzling, the stage is set for this amazing venue. This Moroccan and Belgian couple's knack and passion for finding antiques and curios from all over the archipelago, primarily began for their interior clientele and has Bistrot showcasing the best of their personal collection - and what an amazing collection it is to behold.
The place is beautifully set out, comfortable sofa style bench seating - which is perfect during High Tea time or informal meetings when a beverage is all that is required. The loft style atmosphere is artistic yet welcoming, framed by Blaise's travel collection of impressive photography, which as an exhibition changes from time to time. The working semi-open kitchen found on the ground floor, is where all the menu's fresh, tempting items are created. From the cooling natural stone floor a scatter with rugs underfoot, up to the beautiful skeleton of the metal rafters holding a real wooden ceiling alive with whirring fans the philosophy is traditional, uncomplicated and hospitable but distinct and creative.
Food and drinks are elegant, healthy and of premiere ingredients found on Bali with a taste of Asia and beyond. The team is multi-lingual, the General Manager Yassine Ouldammar hailing from Marocco and Switzerland, had worked for 10 years in different establishments in Paris oversees a kitchen staff from around Indonesia and the delightfully charming waiters and waitress who also speak several languages, and have the knack of serving down to a fine art.
