Kuta, Bali, is a fabulous place when it comes to being lively. The atmosphere here is crazy. There are eccentric pubs, lounges, eateries, restaurants, fast food outlets and what not.
A small walk from the main Kuta Beach Road leads us to the back alleys of Kuta district. It is a shopper’s paradise, with the streets lined up with branded showrooms and souvenir shops. On this stretch, we found a huge pizzeria, named, Colosseum Restaurant. We were looking for a decent eat, with vegetarian fare. The pizza lured us to this place.
The interiors was done pretty well. Dim lighting with an Italian feel. We decided to sit on the outer seating area. On the inside, there is the bar and extensively decorated tables. It has a very cozy feel to it.
We quickly ordered our Vegetable Pizza, along with a Shisha. The latter arrived at our table early. It was probably 4 feet high, one of the best Shisha that you can get at this price. It was about 100,000 IDR + taxes. It made us sit there for a long while. The Veg Pizza was prepared excellently. It was loaded with toppings and so tasty, that we ended up ordering another one.
Next up was the Calamari Rings with Tartar sauce and salad. It was so damn crispy. The sauce was thick and added a world of flavors to the Calamari Rings. The rings were of decent size too.
For my vegetarian wife, I ordered the Veg Lasagna and Caesar Salad. The lasagna was loved by everyone, whereas the Caesar Salad was complete with croutons and a lot of greens.
For the mains, I had ordered a Chicken in Mushroom Sauce. It was creamy and chicken bits were tender. The veggies served added as a great complement to the whole dish.
We also ordered an array of cocktails and mocktails to sip through the evening. Every drink was superbly crafted, maintaining international taste. The ones to mention are Long Island Ice Tea, Blue Lagoon, Lemon Squash amongst others.
The combination of Shisha, cocktails and excellent food made our evening wonderful. Coupled with exceptional service, the warmth of the staff, it was indeed a 5* evening. The prices are reasonable too. So if you are done and dusted with shopping or an all-day trip in Bali, you can come here and have some gala good time to see the evening through.
