Take me away to St Tropez
Sparkling seas, beautiful people, summer breezes and showstopper sunsets……You might be forgiven for thinking you’re somewhere in St Tropez… and you’d be right! St Tropez in Bali that is! Step off the sand in Canggu and into the world’s best beach club and you’ll find this French Summer inspired, open air bistro designed to make the most of its absolute beachfront vistas and cool island vibe.
After an extensive refurbishment, Finns VIP has opened its doors to guests once more, this time featuring beachfront St Tropez Restaurant and Rooftop Bar as their latest offering in al fresco dining. With its fresh take on Italian and French Summer cuisine, unbeatable ocean views and beachfront location at one of Bali’s most desired destinations, St Tropez is hard to beat.
But it’s not just the social media worthy setting that will have diners reaching for their smart phones. St Tropez is set to serve up stunning signature dishes designed to maximise fresh local flavours and quality seasonal produce. The lowdown on the menu leans toward light Summer cuisine but it’s certainly not short on flavour. Starters, salads and more substantial mains aim at sustenance, style and satisfaction without weighing you down!
Take a break from your day bed by the VIP Ocean Pool to try their Carpaccio De Thon with delicate truffle dressing, crisp capers and pine nut Gremolata over a salad of celery and asparagus. Still peckish? How about hand cut pappardelle pasta tossed with fresh slipper lobster, crab, tomato and mint ragu! If you can’t resist the carbs you may as well make the most of St Tropez’s crispy wood fired pizzas. Impossibly light and crispy bases feature gourmet toppings to rival any Riviera restaurant. St Tropez’s signature Octopus Pizza showcases flavours from The Med with pickled squid, pepperonata, plump Kalamatas and saffron aioli. Might as well seal the deal with some sweet seduction from the dessert menu. St Tropez’s Seven Sins of Chocolate is wickedly addicitve – seven textures of choc caramel cake topped with hot poured, white chocolate and coconut sauce? Of course you can!
Dine in sophisticated style downstairs then amble upstairs to enjoy unsurpassed sunset views from St Tropez’s Rooftop Bar. Bigger and better than before, The Rooftop Bar takes evening drinks to the next level, affording uninterrupted, 180 degree views of the coastline from The Bukit to Batu Bolong and beyond. It’s the money shot as far as vistas go, adding a wow factor to any sized affair from intimate sunset cocktail evenings to birthdays, after work gatherings and more. Open from 3pm with resident vocalist and DJ performing nightly.
Scheduled to welcome their first guests from June 20 it is likely this new wining and dining addition to Finns VIP will be become a popular choice for discerning expats, day trippers and locals alike, all looking to take their Bali experience to the next level.
Can’t manage to get away to the Cote D’Azur this holiday season? St Tropez at Finns VIP is sure to satisfy some of those cravings for a French Riviera Summer!
