Eats+Drinks Review: The Tapping Shoes, Bali

The Tapping Shoes (Jl. Petitenget, Seminyak, Bali; 62-361/300-7979) is one of the restaurants in the Potato Head Beach Club Complex in Bali.

It’s a striking venue with lots of art and chandeliers perched proudly above the beach club proper with an artsy design style facing the Indian Ocean and Seminyak Beach.

This is the latest venture from the Potato Head group, but this serves high-quality classic French cuisine, courtesy of skillful Chef Hikaru (from Japan). His dishes are complemented by classic and exotic cocktails from in-house mixologist Dre Masso.

With a six-course degustation menu and a good selection of (still overly expensive) wines, it is a bold undertaking in an area with other more established French cuisine houses, but so far it seems to be working very well indeed.
