A beautiful location, right by the river, extremely peaceful and a large variety of food on offer. I ordered a drink and was pleasantly surprised at how well it was served!

We ate lunch here in a party of two adults and two children. The food was very good as was most of the service. It was a very quite day with only one or two other tables occupied. Peaceful atmosphere and a view of the resort pool, which looked lovely! Only real down side was that we were all a... More

It is a very relaxing area above the river and it is located in Maya Ubud Resort. During my stay in Maya Ubud Hotel I relaxed with a glass of wine at this beautiful environment. Visit it early, before 18:00 if you want to enjoy the view of the river and forest. Late in the evening is very dark.

Had a very pleasant lunch this Sunday afternoon at the River Cafe. Tenderloin steak and the snapper were delicious. Have to try the wheatgrass shot ! The view was not bad either!!

Far (but close at the same time) from the busy Ubud you feel blessed in this quiet environment where you can have a lunch or an early dinner in the nature and then relax close to the pool. The food is very healthy and you can cook your own tuna on a hot stone !

We had a couple of evening coffee and snacks at this place. One would be confused where the view from the place is better than the food. But both are very very good. Of course they dont allow small childred (below 5-6 yrs) since that would break the silence of the place.
