The Plantation Grill (Robert Marchetti)
Classy Dining at Double Six Luxury in Seminyak0
The Plantation Grill is the flagship restaurant within the collection of sophisticated dining and lounging options at the Double Six Luxury Hotel in Seminyak, brought to you by well-known Bondi chef and restaurateur Robert Marchetti. Located on the fourth floor of the hotel’s southwest wing, The Plantation Grill opens its doors for stylish evenings with interiors that hark back to the 1920s, serving innovative dishes of grilled meats and seafood with first-class services to match.
Well-designed and immersive, The Plantation Grill is the first of its kind on the island to present posh, Gatsyb-esque interiors. A main dining hall under a double-vaulted ceiling offers choices of subtly-lit and cosy booths, of mostly curved dark leather sofas around small round tables, a thoughtful seating design that enables each of the carefully prepared dishes being presented to take centre stage.

A typical evening at The Plantation Grill starts with a welcome by Craig, the courteous host and restaurant service manager, all clad in white, who you’ll notice taking regular trips around the tables throughout the evening, ensuring every guest’s satisfaction is met. Snugly seated in plush nooks, we scan through our LED-lit menus while being briefed on the specials. These range from French-buttered lobster rolls, tartars, minute steaks, and signature gourmet burgers with wood-grilled dry-aged beef patties.
A ‘beer steamed prawn cocktail’ (IDR 170,000) settled as one of our entrées of choice, featuring three different prawns – tiger, manta and vannamei – hooked around the rims of a glass cocktail bowl filled with watercress, iceberg lettuce and tomato jelly doused in a horseradish cocktail sauce. Next our steamed seafood salad (IDR 220,000) is freshly prepared by our waiter from a cart right at our table, mixing the meaty strips of calamari, salmon, clams and prawns with a tomato, basil and preserved lemon dressing that perfectly balances the mix with a zesty tang.
Main courses at The Plantation Grill are varied, with selections coming from the wood oven and the wood grill. There are also roasted duck, chicken and quail listed under ‘birds of a feather’. Our half spit-roasted duck (IDR 210,000) comes served on the bone with a bed of Paris mash potatoes, steamed wild purple spinach, green peas, pancetta and slices of shiitake mushrooms – a pleasant variety of different flavours served hot in one wholesome dish.
Our closing treats include icing sugar-sprinkled donut balls that are presented to our table with a set of tiny piping bags, complete with icing tips and filled with raspberry and strawberry jam. It’s a DIY feature where you can choose your filling of choice, take a ball and swell it until it delightfully oozes. Another highlight dessert is The Plantation Grill’s Bomb Alaska, spiky presentation of ice cream and meringue that is doused with Cointreau and set alight.
Before or after dinners, head up the spiralling staircase to the Sling Bar, which provides you with an overview of the impressive dining hall below. Past an antique gramophone, the bar is helmed by a bartender who whips up cocktails or a glass from one among their great collection of martinis and single malts. When ladies need to powder up a bit, they’re in for a treat through an amazing mirror-walled corridor where a sophisticated boudoir-like powder room awaits.
Overall, prices may be on the higher end, but the plush décor and marble finishes, carefully presented cuisine and high attention to detail justifies it as one of the most exceptional evenings one could experience in Seminyak.
