Bright cocktails, fresh food and pink-isch sunsets; a magical combination. La Plancha, located on the Double Six beach between Dhyanapura & 66 road in Seminyak, is a Spanish beach bar with an abundance of colourful beanbags and tasseled parasols.
This place is superb to watch the sun sink in to the ocean, not only for its vivid appearance. The waiters are super friendly, as the Balinese mostly are, and your food and drinks will be on the table in no time. The whole place aids good vibes and is jam-packed every sunset, so be sure to get there on time to steal a seat and nestle in. Sit back, dig your feet in to the sand, watch one of Bali’s fairly like sunsets and stay awhile.
As for the food, as the name implicates, the Spanish beach bar serves all sorts of menu items a la plancha – which means prepared on the grill. And what is a Spanish bar with out some tapas… La Plancha offers all the classics one would expect, varying between $3,30 and $4.40. For those keen on burgers, salads and fries to watch away the sunset, that can be ordered as well.
So what is this evening of sunset gazing going to cost you? La Plancha is one the cheaper beach bars and the tiny inexpensive bites are a perfect light meal or complimentary snack. For three tapas dishes, which were quite large, we paid $11,78. The drinking is what makes a bit more expensive, with cocktails priced roughly $7.40 Beers are, as always, the cheapest option, a Bintang will only cost you $2.20
La Plancha is open daily from 12:00 till 22:00, for more information visit www.laplancha-bali.com.
