Fantastic intimate and comfortable venue for great live music. Staff are welcoming and friendly and fun and never pushed us to order more than one drink. These are relatively expensive, at 25,000 for a small Bintang, and 35,000 for a fresh juice or coconut (+ tax and service) but for one drink each and free music it was always a... More

This is a very lovely place, but if you are on a budget it may be an expensive night. The meals are good quality and well presented but a bit pricey for Ubud. It has a large range of spirits and wines but you do pay for that. My husband and myself went for a meal and drinks and there... More

I'd go for the music again but the food which for all of us (7 people) was good but smaller than a meal for a five years old kid. After we were finish and still hungry we asked for more but the answer was: "no sorry: this is the size of our meals" they simply don't care. The food in... More

A stylish setting, catering for all manner of patrons. Do go for the music and the good times. Do not go for the food. The dishes are dressed up to be something they are not and are expensive for what you get. Good wine list but again an expensive commodity. In my view the 2 for 1 cocktails offered in... More

Visited the Jazz Cafe on Tuesday and ate here. Food was average but very expensive. Cocktails were not horrible and expensive. However would highly recommend visiting this cafe purely for the fantastic live music. We were fortunate to see the Magic Mushrooms, the female singer was amazing! She created a great atmosphere and had everyone up dancing. Would not recommend... More

Jazz cafe is very centrally located in Ubud. It is one of the few places in Ubud, Bali to soak in live jazz music and a great ambience. The seating arrangement in Jazz Cafe is very indonesian, with low seating arrangement. They have a certain section which has outdoor low seating amidst lush tress. Food - The food served over...

We visited here and stayed about an hour. The singer was very good and the band tight and played well together. The songs were mainly standards. We did not eat, but the drinks were good and freshly made. I had watermelon juice and papaya and lime - both freshly squeezed. The service was good and the waiters and bar staff... More

Great place to sit and watch some live music in Ubud. We went there a few of times during our stay in Ubud and would thoroughly recommend this place for watching some good quality jazz and blues. Great cocktails, but we never ate there so can't comment on the food. It's a little difficult to find, down a side road,... More
