This happening beachside restaurant -- a Seminyak pioneer -- is lovingly referred to as 'La Looch' and looks out onto one of the prettiest stretches of Seminyak beach. The new Italian chef offers classic Mediterranean fare with a touch of Asian spice. The pan seared fillet of coral trout with pancetta, marinated artichokes, wild rocket, and preserved lemon dressing is a firm favorite. Finish with a lemon and vanilla bean soufflé and a bracing expresso. The only way to get to the restaurant is through the parking lot of the famous Petitenget Temple next door -- the laughter will lead the way.
