We had a table of eight with friends driving from Semyinak and us coming from Candidasa. Lovely setting with great food and good service. Recommend if with a group make a booking. Rice fields when they are green make for a lovely back drop. Good eatery in Ubud.

Had lunch with friends The service was okay and the food good. Satay beef, spring rolls, beef salad, and lots of Bingtang and JD and coke. The best part of this restaurant was the location, the view over the rice paddies and the beautiful breeze on a perfect day. Great place for a pleasant lunch in Ubud.

Stopped here on a walk for lunch and menu was extensive. Was pretty disappointed with the food. Had Gado Gado and chicken satay sticks, sticks were OK but the GG not at all appealing to look at or to eat. Had a way better feed at our hotel.

Well presented food. Duck was well worth the try. Food and drinks were well priced. Nice surrounds in the rice padi.

Visited for lunch after going to the monkey forest. Was greeted by a table full of ants and bird poo. Eventually ordered and waited over 1 hour for what transpired to be a defrosted oven cooked pizza (could've got better from my local supermarket) and undercooked and inedible potato wedges... they arrived at completely different times and were the worst...

I had expected a much better tropical view when decided to go to this restaurant ... All in all it was a nice experience. The food was good and not very expensive. The cocktails were a good quality too. It is very close to the monkey forrest and the rice field near by is not much a view.

Bit quieter than in the main strips of ubud, located between yoga barn and the monkey forest. The four of us enjoyed a good dinner with nachos to share a few beers and a mix of mains. Between us we enjoyed the chicken salad bowls, satay chicken which camr in hot coals (nice touch) and the burrito. Was a really... More

I was hoping for a lovely view of the rice field with my lunch, but this was marred by the mini Hollywood-sign type lettering planted in the field! A pity. Nonetheless, the Nasi Campur I had here was delicious (and came with two sticks of chicken satay and a veggie soup as well). If you’re dining solo, the wifi makes... More

Walking down towards the monkey sanctuary and we noticed a sign with half price cocktails as well as some amazing looking Mexican dishes. Usually we would eat local food, but the meals all just sounded too good! 4 fantastic flavored mojito's later and the nachos arrived, great starter to share for 2. We then had a fajita and quesadilla mains... More
