« L’Asiette is one of the few spots in Seminyak where you can enjoy French cuisine surrounded by unique art pieces and antique decor. » -Bali Indonesia Magazine
From Jalan Mertanadi, the facade of L’Asiette is all white, modest and unassuming. Step in, and you’ll be surprised at how spacious and stylish the main dining hall is. With open-beam ceilings and subtly lit chandeliers over a well-stocked bar, the Bohemian decor fits in with the overall colonial French theme of the restaurant. Old portraits hang on its walls and the layout comprises whitewashed wooden tables and chairs.
Past the kitchen and a mini library with French literature on its shelves, a small stone pathway leads you to the bright and leafy garden, a contrast to the subtly-lit and richly coloured interiors of the hall. Rustic wooden gazebos and a Javanese ‘joglo’ traditional wooden house surround the perimeter and the furthest end of the garden, sheltering the tables and cushioned seats that provide cosy and private spaces for dining with family or friends.
Through the culinary skills of Executive Chef, Betty introduces inspired recipes, some borrowed from and in honour of Georges Blanc. Its kitchen includes a few major items flown directly from France to ensure the consistency of flavours, and the portioning sizes are generous. From its lunch and dinner menus, must-tries include the beef tartar L’Asiette for lunch, served with mixed salad and French fries, and the ‘poulet façon’ chicken in gravy mushroom sauce for dinner, served with ratatouille and yellow rice on the side. For dessert, try the ‘duo de chocolat’, which comes as a platter with a slice of fulsome chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, and orange jam.
