Kuta’s main tourist drag may not be considered by many as the place to find fine dining, however for those who have discovered Christian Vannequé’s   Parisian brasserie and wine bar ‘Sip’ would beg to differ. Straight up, the wine list is to die for, boasting a collection of New World and quality Bordelais wines. In the kitchen things heat up as steak frites sauté and hearty Toulouse cassoulet simmer. The restaurant strives to deliver high quality for great value, offering a three-course menu for $25.
Location: 16a Jalan Raya Seminyak, Kuta (opposite Bintang supermarket). Ph. +62 361 730 810.
