    Cosy Restaurant, Lounge, Bar and Gallery in Seminyak


    Slippery Stone is a cosy restaurant, lounge, bar and gallery in Seminyak that offers a relaxed and casual dining experience with an open kitchen and bar concept, great paddy views and trickling water gardens. Its ‘East meets West’ menu comprises creative takes on Indonesian and local favourites, grills and roast meats, and signature artisan crispy crust pizzas. Since its opening in 2012, the 3,000sqm open-air venue is fast becoming a dining icon in northern Seminyak, with a name which directly translates as ‘slippery stone’.

    Tucked away at the end of a driveway, it is surrounded by green paddies and in front of its long bar are wooden decks bordering a blue LED-lit water feature. The setting is light and breezy, and the laid-back ambience is enhanced by flowing chill-out music. Staff members behind its open kitchen and bar are in constant but quiet motion pushing out their orders of inventive dishes and refreshing cocktails. Patrons take their seats on one semi-open side of the cool water feature, under the stars and frangipani trees in an inner lounge courtyard, or in a more homey and sheltered section beside an art gallery.

  • Top quality Asian and Western dishes are prepared with great presentation, and all are reasonably priced. Indonesian delights aren’t left out. If you fancy small bites and a twist on a local favourite, try the Slippery Gado Gado, with the traditional peanut sauce-laden salad mix served on three oriental soup spoons on a platter. The one-kilo beef ribs are two sweet and juicy slabs on a smooth chopping block like wooden platter served with a small bowl of fresh local mango salad. Another culinary work of art comes in the form of the Ayam Pelalah, a traditional dish of shredded chicken in sweet spicy sauce with steamed half moon buns on a unique wooden tray, which holds the folded morsels in place. Wonderful desserts to try include the signature tiramisu and the unique chocolate and coffee tart.

    Come for lunch and just before the rice harvest season, you’ll witness Balinese country life at its best as local farmers go about in their day-to-day tending of the fields. But the subtle yet dramatic lighting of Slippery Stone’s open spaces truly shows its colours at dinner time. Right after sunset, head to the sunken open sky lounge and recline on one of the plush daybeds with inspired cocktails, such as the special selections that come served with elaborate silver Moroccoan tea sets. Other cocktails to try include coriander margaritas, or the Flaming Passion that is a mix of gold rum, passion fruit, lemon juice and Cointreau.

    A truly Asian inspired concoction is the Hot Mandarin, a flute comprising vodka-infused mandarin muddled with chilli, shaken with fresh apple, lemon and orange juice, and then Cointreau that is finally set alight. You can also choose to sip wine inside the cool, earthy toned wine cellar with its plush grand sofas. While still focusing on great ambience, beverages and cuisine, Slippery Stone is also set to become a regular venue for art happenings; its spacious gallery currently only shows a small collection of paintings.
