FAVOURITE PLACE TO EAT

Frestro, Bali.

When you walk into Frestro you’re greeted with an eyegasm of epic proportions. Almost as though someone has built a classy restaurant around their prized wine and top shelf spirit collection. The staff are suited in classy uniforms and have the warmest most welcoming demeanor.

THEN! The food. My gosh, if you know what is good for you, try the ceviche for an entree. This is a melt in your mouth, herb infused, flavour burst on a corn chip.

All their fruit and vegetables are sourced for their own farm and the seafood is only the freshest which makes those raw dishes extra lavish. One of my favourite things was the wine, yes, that’s right, wine… in Bali! This stuff is amazing and we had the cheapest on the menu. SO IMPRESSED!

Nicolas the host, who has spent many years working in exquisite French restaurants goes around to every table, looking after all of the guests, recommending dishes to certain tastes and explaining the menu in great detail, imparting his foodie wisdom on everyone he meets.

To our surprise the menu pricing was unbelievably affordable and on par with most Bali prices.

AMAZING. If you know what is good for you, check it out.

3 MUST-DO’S

  1. Bali Safari Park – such a hands on, fun experience coming close to beautiful (not drugged) animals.
  2. Nungnung Waterfall – the treasure at the end of 500 steps.
  3. Jodie O’Shea Orphanage – if you feel like giving a little of yourself amidst indulging in paradise, the children are beautiful and love to meet new faces.
