Mark Dennis, the General Manager welcomes us with a typical Aussie friendliness. He arrived in Bali just over a year ago, following 14 years of working in the F & B industry in Thailand, so he is well versed to living in the tropics. He likes the fact Bali doesn't really feel like anywhere else in the world. You can find Mark in the restaurant seven days a week, overseeing operations and welcoming guests from around the world. Pavone is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with different menus at each meal , as well as a special kids menu to keep the little ones happy. Seating options include a comfortable lounge area, communal dining at long tables, or romantic tables for two. Evenings at Pavone are accompanied by background lounge music from the DJ or live acoustic music.
The Greek Salad makes a fresh start to our meal with mixed greens, black olives, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, feta and a flavourful dressing. The Australian Tenderloin Herb Butter is 180grams of tender steak, char grilled with a sizzling topping of melted herb butter made with parsley and garlic. Sides include sautéed veggies and buttery potato gratin baked to perfection. We finish off with a classic Tiramisu which is soft and moist and sprinkled with fine chocolate powder making it the sweetest statement of the day.
No trip to Legian would be complete without a 'bloody cold beer' or a colourful tropical cocktail and we find plenty of both here at Pavone. The Strawberry Daiquiri is made with the freshest strawberries and the Fruit Tingle has a fun, bold blue colour, there is also a very fruity Fruit Punch from the mocktail range.
Make sure to look for Mark when you head down to Pavone and see what he recommends for the next chapter in your Balinese Holiday. \MA
