Smoqee Sky Bar at Le Meridien Bali is a must visit for a spectacular sunset view in Jimbaran. We loved the feeling of being perched above the ocean, witnessing the sky melt into the horizon. Their relaxing couches are ideal for a romantic glass of wine or cocktail before dinner, and the live music creates an enjoyable intimate ambiance. After a few cocktails, we moved to one of the dining tables to enjoy their Bistro Gastro Dinner which is available on Saturday nights. The BBQ selection gives you the option of meat or seafood platters and there is an abundant bar of salads, vegetables, and rice to accompany your feast. We loved the seafood selection complete with Grilled Lobster, Clams, Prawns and Special Fish Of The Day, and the meat barbecue selection offered juicy Korean Grill Wagyu Sirloin, Chicken Breast Teriyaki and Lamb Roasted Chermoula. A stunning venue for a fun, BBQ meal and great atmosphere.

Stone Nullah Tavern has always been one of our favourite spots to feast on American eats in the city, and we were excited to hear that talented Chef Vinny Lauria and restaurant founder Todd Darling decided to make changes to the menu and bring it back to American classics. Chef Vinny has created a new menu of American favourites with inspiration from New England and the East Coast where he originated. The dishes are hearty, mouthwatering, and produced from the best local, organic produce.  We highly recommend the indulgent buffalo oysters with blue cheese, the fresh and sweet King Crab Legs with Homemade Cocktail Sauce, Horseradish and Old Bay, the fun and tasty Meatloaf Sliders paired with Pickle Backs, the tender Maple BBQ Glazed Ribs, and the indulgent Fish n' Chips made with Beer Battered Black Cod, this being one of the tastiest Fish & Chips we have had in HK. If you are in the mood for bar snacks make sure to sample their addictive and unique Nachos made with Pork Cheek Chili, Jalapenos and Crispy Pig's Ears, and the delicious BBQ Chicken Pizza. Make sure to pair your meal with beers from their great craft beer selection or their new menu of all American whiskeys, boasting the largest selection in the city. If you are in the mood for wine, they have a list completely imported from the USA. 

Stone Nullah Tavern have also introduced arguably the best happy hour we've heard of to date. Between the hours of 5-7pm, Monday through Friday, you can partake in the "Beat the Clock" happy hour where drinks start at just $1HK and double every twenty minutes. We can't wait to return and celebrate 4th of July with the amazing team at their special Independence Day party in cooperation with Little Burro. Make sure to join us or visit another time for a true American feast.

We love our champagne brunches so were excited to hear about Cut Catch Cucina's weekend brunch at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua. Their vast selection has a distinct European element, with a French inspired charcuterie section as the alluring centrepiece. We loved the selection of decadent and authentic French cheeses, hams, and terrines which paired perfectly with the free flow champagne. Seafood lovers will be in for a treat with their fresh shellfish selection complete with a live barbecue grill. We couldn't resist digging into their meat and BBQ selection, featuring a juicy beef wellington, classic kebab station, and made to order BBQ skewers. If that wasn't enough, they also feature an a la carte menu serving innovative modern dishes in petite portions and a pizza and fresh pasta stand great for families with kids. Save room for the extensive dessert stations complete with freshly prepared crepes, soft serve ice cream, and enough sweets to fill a candy store. A must try for those who are after a decadent and fun brunch with family or friends. The best part is that even brunch diners who aren't staying at the hotel are welcome to use the luxurious and relaxing pool after their meal. What more could you want out of a weekend in Bali?
