Top Seafood Restaurants in Seminyak - Places to Experience a Different Side of Bali

Seminyak, Bali is not just about the beaches. It's also about the creatures found near those beaches and the mouth-watering dishes that come out of the top seafood restaurants in the area.


Sardine Restaurant

Although the name of the restaurant is reminiscent of a tightly packed can of fish, Sardine restaurant is on par with the restaurants at luxury hotels in Seminyak. It has a relaxed ambience although the place is a fine dining restaurant. The dining hall has a bamboo ceiling, and dining is al fresco. The open space and large windows to the outside expose lush fields of paddy. The menu at the Sardine restaurant is constantly changing, so there is always something new to try for even the most regular customer.


Crab Bar

Open from eleven to eleven, Crab Bar is a casual dining experience. It is for the diner who wants to have a hearty meal and do that in a comfortable atmosphere. As is evident by the name, the restaurant's speciality is in crab dishes, which they whip up in various ways. The dining area is divided into two main sections by a long wooden bar, which gives the place its name. "Crabby delights" accompanied by their spicy sauces is the most famous menu item at the Crab bar.



Seasalt is the main restaurant of Studios at Alila Seminyak. It is a place that is less of a restaurant and more of a home. The speciality of this particular restaurant is its seating plan. There is seating available outside where sea spray is a constant companion; there is also seating inside where the frolicking sea can be observed from a safe distance. However, the key attraction of Seasalt is its open kitchen. It provides the guests with the opportunity to observe how the cooking and preparing is done, a rare experience.


The Holy Crab

The Holy Crab is a revered place for those who love crab. It is a place where one can enjoy the meal to their heart's fullest. It requires no cutlery and allows their guests to completely lose themselves in enjoying the food. The guests simply don a bib and dive right into the juicy, flavoursome crab that is served, digging in with their hands and fingers. Of course, dining at the Holy Crab is a messy affair. But it is also the only way to truly enjoy eating the tricky crustacean that is the crab.


Benoa Fish Market

Benoa Fish Market is unique in that it is a place that both sources and serves fish and assorted seafood. Customers merely walk in and point at the fish they want, and the cut they would like to have. Then they can either have it packed and taken to be cooked back in their villa or request the cut selected to be cooked a particular way. If choosing to have the staff at Benona Fish Market prepare the meal as well, one can then make themselves at home on a cosy couch indoors or under the sunny tropical sun outside and dig into fresh produce, chosen by them cooked to their desired perfection.
