Tel: 62 361 736 969's insider take:

Since it opened in 2000, this classy contemporary Australian restaurant has maintained its status as the island's most glamorous. Its wide beachfront site—which includes a dramatically spotlighted bar, private pavilions, terraces, waterside deck, and cigar menu filled with choice Cuban stogies—feels like a swanky private club. The dishes here focus on exotic Aussie specialties, such as grilled yabbies (small freshwater crayfish), oysters, farmed venison, and succulent lamb. There's also a good selection of sashimi and sushi rolls. The wine list is one of the most interesting in Bali, with a good selection from California, Chile, France, Italy, and New Zealand to complement the Australian vintages. A lower-priced bistro-style menu is served at lunch, but if you want to people-watch while you eat, wait till nighttime, when the blondest, tannest crowd west of the Santa Monica Pier gathers.
