A European touch, still local and good...

We went to Café des Artistes for dinner. Atmosphere was nice, service at good level. For food, some of us selected European dishes, other local dishes (like me!). We were all happy with our choices! The "Ballekes Met Tomaatsaus" zijn super lekker!, somebody tells me... ;-)

As noted in a previous post, Rudy tragically passed from a heart attack last week at the age of 45. Very sad! I assumed that the restaurant would be closed, but we visited the other night (Feb 4 2016) and the staff are keeping things going, at least for now. Everything was very good, as usual. Rudy had been active... More

It was with great sadness I read of the death of Rudy Kerremans the owner of Cafe de Artistes in Ubud. My wife and I have been fortunate to visit Bali many times over the last fifteen years or so and have been to Cafe de Artistes many times since Rudy opened ten years or so ago. Rudi always took...

We had dinner and had a great time at the restaurant. We found it great value, because of the reasonable price. Service was attentive, the wine was good, and the food was excellent.

Two starters, mains, desserts and a few soft drinks for less than $50 AUD sounds good, unfortunately it wasn't great. A bit of the level of a Dome cafe in Australia in that the food was pretty much only okay, I had the mozzarella starter and found the small plate dominated by lettuce covered in vinegarette so even if I...

The ambience of this place is great, nicely decorated, easy music and a relaxed atmosphere. The food is not bad, but not great either. My rendang dish tasted ok, but was a bit boring with no other flavors on the plate. The Gado Gado was OK, but could have been served with a more generous quantity of peanut sauce. The... More

When you see the place, you think " WOW", a gem among many average pkaces. Well, take a photo and go, coz when you order and start seeing what you ordered you realize that it's all wrong and not at all drinkable or eatable. We paid (coz we are nice) and left.

I have been here a few times in the past and the steak has always been very good. Not sure if my memory has played a trick on me and my expectations were too high or the level of food in other restaurants in Bali has just become better, but this time the meal was very disappointing. My steak seemed... More
