FIRE Restaurant

Found inside the luxurious W Bali Seminyak, FIRE is the resort’s signature steak and grill restaurant. This dining destination is inspired by the Kecak, paying homage to Bali’s traditional fire dance through its eclectic interiors and decor. A centre-piece fireball chandelier sets the scene, with ornate draperies hemmed in ikat weaving found across the sophisticated space, and Bali’s black-and-white poleng theme (worn by the dancers) symbolises the balance of good and evil. It is a theatre, and the dramatic open kitchen puts on quite the show. 

When it comes to the menu, Director of Culinary Norberto Palacios makes use of his Argentinian roots, showcasing a mastery of the meat and grill, with support from Balinese chef, I Made Sember. The steaks at FIRE centre on a dry-aged selection of premium Australian beef, featuring striploin, tenderloin and cuberoll cuts which have cemented its reputation as one of the best places for steaks in Bali.

Best steak restaurants in Canggu


The beachside barbecue just got a facelift. Overlooking the waves of Batu Bolong Beach from its first-floor perch, SKOOL offers a modern dining experience where every dish has been touched by fire — from appetisers to desserts. Though technically not a steakhouse, this is one place you can be sure to enjoy delicious steaks in Bali.

The restaurant marks a collaboration between two of Bali’s most successful restaurateurs, Tai Buddha (known for The Lawn, Times Beach Warung and Single Fin) and Adam Mcasey (Sisterfields, Bossman Bali and BIKINI). SKOOL sees a marriage of the two group’s styles, laidback surf life meets the social and sophisticated; hence the apt description of an elevated beachside barbecue. Their driving principle, ‘PRIMITIVE COOKING / MODERN DINING’, says it all. Chef Vallian Gunawan is the one stoking the flames in the open kitchen, where fresh, line-caught fish hang beside pineapples, smoking gently above the grills, heated by coffee wood and charcoal.

Though the concept is simple, the flavours are not. Chef Vallian delivers his flame-touched dishes with rich layers and complexity: the slow-roasted lamb, marinated for over three days in garlic, yoghurt, and spices, is trussed and hung over the fireplace to roast to perfection, then served in its own spiced juice. The sweets are suited for a memorable send-off. A whole spice-glazed pineapple, slow roasted for 7 hours over charcoal embers, is served lukewarm paired with macadamia nut ice cream. Smokey flavours where you least expect them, sweet notes from surprising ingredients; the young Indonesian chef has impressed his diners with his mastery of the flame and flavours. You’ll find great vegetarian dishes as well. 

The entire restaurant sits alongside the coconut tree canopy, with a laidback open-deck bar outside with views over the beach. Signature cocktails by Head Mixologist Daniel Gerves are a must-try (psst… order the Watermelon Mojito!). Inside is the intimate and stylish restaurant area, dressed with the works of contemporary artists Steve Gorrow and Ricky Lee Gordon, with 80’s beats from the in-house vinyl collection imbuing the venue with a cool, nostalgic atmosphere.
