Breeze at The Samaya – Seminyak

I thought it would be enjoyable to share a beach front meal during our trip to Bali and the Breeze was booked.  We decided on lunch as I was a little concerned about mosquitos at night – mosquitos love Mr Ana however the love is not returned!

We walked there from our villa in Seminyak and passed a number of interesting boutiques along the way.  Walked past Ku De Ta, who was preparing for their 11th anniversary beach party bash.  As we were a bit early, we walked beyond the Breeze and to the beach for a  look see.  The sea was incredibly rough due to stong winds and the entire beach is a dedicated sacred site so no one was allowed to swim there.  We walked along the beach, past some tents where worshipping would have occurred earlier in the morning, and past a beautiful sea offering swaying in the wind.

We strolled along the beach back towards the Breeze and entered directly from the beach.  There weren’t many people there so it was a quiet and private dining experience.

Mr And enjoyed a Bintang beer while I had a yummy cranberry cocktail.  Mr Ana had a light lunch of soba noodle salad served with pork belly, which was refreshing and light.  It had a soy dressing that coated the noodles, the pork was well marinated and tender, and it was topped with crunchy sweet onions.

I chose nasi campur (of course!), which was quite nice, my favourite dishes being the pork curry, sate beef stick, and the pickled vegetables.  The shredded chicken was so so, I felt it might have been sitting there for a while…

The food wasn’t top notch, however really, the premium you’re paying for the view the restaurant offers you, not the food.  It was quiet and relaxing, and a cool spot to chill out in the afternoon.
