Fabulous 100

The Restaurant at Setai Hotel

The Restaurant at the Setai and the new, somewhat less expensive Grill has a lot to live up to. If the pricey entrees prove too daunting, there are plenty of opportunities to sample the kitchen's craftsmanship at the Grill or the more casual outdoor cafe.

Almost 15,000 square feet of the main floor have been dedicated to Shaun Hergatt’s haute, East-Meets-West cuisine. A team of international chefs from Thailand, China, India and Europe work seamlessly to create a menu that reaches from stone-over pizza to Tasmanian trout. The main dining room features an exhibition kitchen for those who wish to watch the Olympians craft the “trans-ethnic” dishes. Weather permitting, dine in the romantic sunken garden area surrounded by quiet ponds and tropical blooms. Foodies will swoon for the Wagyu beef and the tandoor-roasted prawns complimented with over 450 wines.

Guests impressed with the best can sip champagne and sample caviar and tapas at the spectacular Crustacean Bar or dine alfresco at the 90 foot Mediterranean-style Beach Bar. Things have gotten a lot more glamorous now that the Setai has upped the ante on South Beach.
