Sami Sami, AYANA Resort Bali

Spicy seafood soup with tomato, white wine and garlic bruschetta

When it comes to soup, I have always preferred something robustly flavoured over the clearer variety. And the spicy seafood soup was what I opted for at Sami Sami, Ayana Resort Bali. Prior to dinner, my friends and I enjoyed an evening of breathtaking view and cocktails at Rock Bar next door.

Lobster and saffron risotto with white wine and fresh herbs

Sami Sami is a stylish open-air restaurant that serves rustic Italian cuisine and like Rock Bar, the restaurant also offers a view of the ocean. The spicy seafood soup (IDR120,000/USD10) was rich in flavour and served with crusty garlic bruschetta. Just the way I like it.

Roasted sea bass with porcini mushrooms, fried artichokes and saffron sauce

My lobster risotto (IDR180,000/USD16) was cooked al dente, while the saffron gave the dish a bold flavour and rich colour. Pretty good stuff. I preferred this to my friend’s roasted seabass (IDR210,000/USD18.50) fresh and firm, and served with saffron sauce and fried artichokes.

Cannelloni with veal ragout, artichokes and rosemary, veal sauce

Lemon sorbet

Caramelised lemon tart with orange compote and almond cream

Dessert was a simple lemon sorbet (IDR35,000/USD3) and lemon tart (IDR90,000/USD8) shared between the three of us. And a cup of Italian coffee (IDR100,000/USD8.80) to cap off. Overall, I found the starter and mains pretty consistent in flavour and presentation, while dessert was a little less stellar.

Italian Coffee

The view at Sami Sami is beautiful especially if you catch the sunset. If al-fresco dining is your thing, this would be a good option. 🙂
