(Update: Petitenget Restaurant & Bar closed down in May 2017, reopening as KILN on Petitenget)
Petitenget Restaurant & Bar is one of the most recognisable dining spots in Seminyak; one of the favourite go-to places for breakfast, lunch and dinner amongst expatriates and visitors in this fashionable area. The restaurant presents a menu of international dishes that use fresh, local produce, and offers elegant seating options indoors, as well as cosy alfresco settings in a leafy and tree-shaded garden. It is named after the central landmark of Petitenget Temple, which is only a few steps south of the restaurant.
Established since 2011, Petitenget Restaurant & Bar is hard to miss along drives down the main Jalan Petitenget Road, positioned on the northern corner of the junction just out of the temple, and with its name in clear white capital letters across its roadside hedge.

For lunch, Petitenget Restaurant & Bar offers a broader selection that offers an eclectic mix of Western and Asian inspired dishes. The Vietnamese duck salad offers a unique experience for the palate, served with mint, green chilli, pickled carrot, glass noodles, and the traditional ‘nuoc cham’ sauce that provides the pleasant burst of sweet, sour and savoury with every bite. Mains include a great selection for seafood lovers, such as a laksa soup that owes its spiciness to the signature chilli jam, as well as a 130gr Black Angus minute steak for meat lovers served with caramelised onions, ruccola, grain mustard and French fries, at IDR 99,000.
