The Magical Land of
SEA VU PLAY
A tropical nautical escape.
The weird, wonderful world of Sea Vu Play brings fun with a nautical theme to Seminyak restaurants. With more than a nod to maritime traditions, pirate folklore and tales of the sea are the inspiration for this fun filled venue; the perfect place to eat, drink, be merry and enjoy nightlife in Bali. Sea Vu Play reflects the fun filled nature of a holiday in Bali – you’ll never feel out of place in a Hawaiian shirt on a table under the palm trees. The vibe may be all about fun but there are some things we’re serious about and that includes our food, drink and music. While we take it seriously, we invite you to enjoy the dreamy escapism of Bali, savoring delicious dishes and tempting signature cocktails. Sea Vu Play is injecting the fun back into restaurants in Seminyak. It’s a destination inspired by the islands and seaside destinations. Think of seaside carnival circus theme park in Melbourne meets the Pier at Santa Monica, and you’ll come somewhere close to what Sea Vu Play is all about. But of course the best way to find out is to step aboard yourself. We lower the gang plank from 4pm every day.
How did Sea Vu Play come to be? Like all good pirate tales, it was a dark and stormy night. The good boat Sammy – also known to some as Miss Behavin’ – was en-route to Atlantis, under the direction of Captain Aquaholic and her crew of salty babes. Also on board was their pet fish Dori and a precious cargo of rum seeds. In the height of the storm, and in the least elegant of fashions, the boat was beached and both Dori and the rum seeds lost to the sea. Alas, Atlantis was never found. In tribute to Dori a rum jungle was planted and a fish shack was built. They never left the spot where the boat was beached, naming it Sea Vu Play and christening the fish shack ‘Funky Dori’.
The crew of Sea Vu Play are a team of food, beverage and hospitality professionals who are as serious about having fun as they are food and drink. The influences for the menu come from Mediterranean and Asian Cuisine, whilst you’ll also find some good old Aussie classics like the Chicken Parmigiana. There’s something for everyone on our carefully thought out and lovingly prepared menu. At Sea Vu Play we believe in authenticity, so you won’t find any fusion dishes on the menu. Each recipe is respectful of its heritage, as we aim to be one of the very best restaurants in Seminyak. There’s nothing deconstructed about our dishes; what you will find is high quality ingredients and authentic recipes paired lovingly with cocktails and other tipples. The menu offers a range of pizzas, flat breads, pastas, grilled fish and stewed seafood. There’s also a range of salads and sharing plates to keep up the social side of dining; perfect if you’re stopping by with a group of friends and family to watch a sports match. And if you’re bringing the kids along for the trip, worry not because the crew will happily serve up some children’s specials too. Sea Vu Play is one of the best restaurants in Bali – on the deck or at a table in the rum jungle, the crew assure you of a warm welcome and good times.
Taking charge in the galley is Head Chef Abi, who set sail for Indonesia from his native Morocco over a decade ago. Bringing years of experience in the kitchens of some of the finest hotels and restaurants firstly in Jakarta and latterly in Bali with him, his passion is focused on delivering perfectly prepared and presented wholesome and healthy food for every order. Abi knows that his hard work in the kitchen means people out on deck are enjoying what they eat and having a great time.
The crew of Sea Vu Play think life should be fun, and fun is worth celebrating. You’ll notice this reflected in the vibrant colours giving a whimsical seaside vibe, inspired by boat sheds. The boat shaped bar reflects the story of the good ship Sammy being washed aground on the magical island of Sea Vu Play. From the rum seeds grew not only the rum jungle, but an inspired drinks menu, perfect for accompanying a meal or to enjoy by themselves; Sea Vu Play is also a great place for Bali Indonesia nightlife.
As you’d expect there’s a range of rum on offer from the crew including Captain Morgan, Myers Dark, Bacardi Light and Havana Club. If tequila’s your tipple of choice for a wild and fun night, chose from Jose Cuervo or a selection of Patron Café. Get social with your drinks with a range of pitchers to share – sangria, martini’s and margaritas are all available in party size in this fantastic Bali bar. Sea Vu Play’s take on the classic espresso martini comes with a twist with the delicious Slated Caramel Espresso Martini. The Wasted Watermelon, Passion Fruit Mojito, Pink Flamingo, Pineapple Coco Mojito, Fog Horn and Very Berry Frozen Daiquiry are fun and funky cocktails with rum at their core. Red wine, white wine and champagne is all on offer too, and for those who are taking it easy and for the younger visitors to the magical world of Sea Vu Play, there’s a full range of non-alcoholic drinks on offer, including juices, mocktails, coffee and milkshakes.

What people are saying about our restaurant
Anyone, who visits our place leaves us well fed and in a great mood!
Great location and set up…
Bright and cheerful this was great for an early dinner with kids. The staff were lovely and the food came quickly. The menu suited sharing and had good kids options (not just fish and chips)! We shared a number of things and the highlights were calamari and the beetroot salad.
