This one of the many restaurants in Bali is almost like a luxury hotel except there are no rooms. Everything you need for a relaxing cool day at the pool, beach, restaurant and bar rolled in one. It is located in the upscale town of Seminyak and therefore a must do.
Bali has some spectacular eateries. But I recon one of the most popular ones today is the Potato Head, Seminyak. Judging by the crowd on a week day was enough to make me say “wow”. Don’t get side tracked by the name; the restaurant is nowhere associated to the spudded character in the Toy Story movie franchise.
It’s a Bar / Lounge / Restaurant / Pool side patio. Not forgetting to mention function hall, party and DJ facility. This is The ultimate hangout place to enjoy the sunset this side of Kuta. The menu and beverage choices are very edgy. Not the most affordable place to spend an evening but I believe it’s a must to try for any visitor of Bali.
The Potato Head Bali I would leave it for special occasions, intimate events and surprises. The architecture is quirky, edgy and open. The biggest surprise was how hospitable the staff was. They were witty, quick and fun. All in all, a good mix for an adult night of fun. Ha-ha-ha, A kind of place where Mr.Potato Head would take Mrs.Potato Head for their anniversary holiday dinner.
When my brother with family and friends vacationed in Bali, we rented a beautiful big villa not far. Very often we walked by busy Potato Head along the beach to reach the surfing instructor. We never had a need to enter because our accommodation gave us everything we wanted and needed and the parents and teenagers of this group are active tennis players and sports enthusiasts.
If you love to hang around and status matters to you then this is a fantastic all day destination (with kids). If you live in a villa, apartment without direct beach access; even or especially if you live in Ubud or any rural area and want to experience the Kuta/Legian/Seminyak beach then Potato Head is your destination.
It is located directly on the beach where the surf is good. There are also surf board rentals and schools left and right along this shoreline. Be careful though the currents in the sea on this side of the island can be dangerous; stay around the pool if the waves are too high. Potato Head, as Tom describes above can therefore be an all day destination with all amenities including fantastic food; everything you could possible want and need!
