Sei bellissimo Opia Bali / You are beautiful Opia Bali
A little Tuscany in Bali
For a dining experience that is unique in Bali you must try Opia Bali – Dining Destination. Set ledge-side and overlooking the Jimbaran quarry this venue is spectacular. More like Tuscany than Bali with it’s vines, stone detail and pretty lighting, Opia is perfect for a romantic dinner or special occasion.
While you can enjoy Opia for a dusk cocktail or special dinner, the venue is specifically geared up for functions and events. With it’s romantic vibe and onsite chapel, there’s no doubt Opia will fast become one of Bali’s most spectacular wedding venues. There are many areas that can be used for all sorts of numbers ranging from stand up cocktail events to intimate dinners inside or out.
The Opia cocktails are something to witness. With their signature “Blushing Bride” cocktail including bubble feature to the top, there’s nothing standard here. We enjoyed the Blushing Bride, even though I’m not, and the “John Snow” as pre-dinner cocktails.
With the menu highlighting fresh local produce and proteins, you can expect lots of fresh meat options from classic short rib to sustainably sourced fish and seafood. We ate the following:
Crispy Soft Shell Crab / young mango salad, mint leaf, chili sour dressing
Mama’s Beef Rendang / Mother’s recipe braised beef, cooked for 12 hours, together with organic baby potatoes
Crispy Local Duck / herb rice, 350 gr duck, French bean salad, fried shallot, trio sambal
Overnight Lamb Shank / cous cous, roasted pumpkin, cassava chip, lamb shank, chimicuri sauce
Raw Coco & Arabica / organic raw chocolate, crumble, dark bali coffee creamtuille, ice cream
Standouts for us were the Beef Rendang entrée and the Lamb Shank – YUM! Scot is a massive Rendang fan and put it up there with one of the best he’d had in Bali.

We were at Opia on dusk which was absolutely beautiful. Watching the sky change colour and reflect over the floral detail, vines and stone was magical. As the sky dimmed and the hanging lights came on the venue took on another life. I have heard about a few great parties the venue has held at night and I can definitely see it would be a spectacular spot for events such as birthdays, weddings and work conferences.
If you get the opportunity Opia Bali is worth a visit. Sei bellissimo Opia Bali.
For a special night out make sure you head to the Blow Bar for a special hair do and espresso martini beforehand. Reviewed on my recent Blog: Girls Get A Bali Blow Out.
