Bali is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the region, and if you are bringing your special half there to celebrate a important occasion, one great place that we highly recommend is Metis Restaurant in Jalan Petitenget, widely regarded as the culinary epicentre in Bali.
Metis Restaurant specialises in French cuisine, and it has a spectacular view overlooking the paddy fields. It is a venue that is suitable for all-day dining and any occasion.
It is the kind of place where you bring your date to impress, and a sure way to sweep her off her feet. The best part of it all? It is not expensive to dine at Metis. The 2-course set lunch is only Rp 90,000++, while most of the main courses on the lunch menu are between Rp 50,000 to Rp 100,000.
The extensive lunch menu is divided into several categories – starter, soup, sandwich, pasta, main course and dessert – and it satisfies all tastes. Start with the appetising Yellow Fin Tuna Tartare (Rp 58,000) and Les Escargots (Rp 52,000).
Or if you feel like giving yourself a treat, Metis has a special Foie Gras menu which features the best of goose liver – Foie Gras Terrine, Crispy Foie Gras and Yellow Fin Tuna Sushi Roll, Pan Seared Foie Gras; this is a heaven for fans of this well-known French delicacy.
For main course, the Metis Wagyu Cheese Burger (Rp 90,000) is very good. So is the Black Pepper Steak (Rp 110,000), which is a signature dish on the menu. It comes with very addictive skin-on homemade French fries. Other dishes that we sampled include Fish of the Day (Rp 75,000), Grilled Tasmanian Salmon (Rp 80,000), Traditional Beef Stroganoff (Rp 110,000), and Pepper Pork Chop from the daily set lunch menu.
With a beautiful setting and reliable French food, there is always a reason to visit Metis when you are in Bali.
