Description: “THE POND” is opening in Bali (Ubud) in July. It is a restaurant built and decorated with Balinese flair for energetic, vibrant colors, natural materials and classic colonial terra-cotta with a contemporary minimalist twist. Typically Balinese, it has a very open feel overlooking extensive rice fields and a large lotus pond. You can dine at tables or lounge on traditional mattress couches and observe part of the cycle of rice farming by day or lantern-lit eel searches by night (moonlight on rice paddies has a special magic).

Food: just like any other Balinese food, The Pond provided us typical spicy food, most ingredients were not properly mixed but that was what the taste unique, although I thought the food was added too much oil. the taste was not strong, and the portion did not fit the price. too small, even for local.

food was great, setting was great and in typical ubud style, service is stellar. We loved eating at the pond overlooking the pond of lotus plants they have in front of the restaurant. Good vegetarian selection. the only gripe is that while we were eating the meals, the armies of mosquitoes were eating us. Located right next to a pond... More

My wife and I came to The Pond on a whim. We pursued the menu outside and found the offerings to our liking. The location was just right for us, although we did not notice any tables overlooking the rice paddies mentioned. Our table faced "the pond" and we could see the strollers and motorized vehicles zooming along the main... More

On either side of a tall-lillied lilly pond with fountains are 2 restaurants. The Pond and Pundi-Pundi. We had eaten at Pundi Pundi in the past and it was satisfying....food, service, all, specialized in BBQ dishes, but had others too. This time walking, we checked the menu for The Pond: nice pictures, fair prices, and my wife was up for... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant towards the end of our time in Ubud and must say it was one of the nicest meals we had over the 2 weeks we were there. The setting is relaxed and just set back enough from the road to avoid the noise. The staff are lovely and the menu is varied with... More

Was not too impressed by our recent experience, we stopped by for a couple of cocktails and some snacks recently. Unfortunatley the chicken we ordered was off and we all noticed after the first bite and spat it out, luckily none of us fell ill. The cocktails, calamari and fries we ordered were quite tasty though. Mozzies were also everywhere,... More

If it's your first visit to Ubud then it's worth trying out the Pond restaurant, just for the setting itself, with views of the temple & an amazing giant lily pond, this is a pretty impressive place to have lunch or dinner. The food is fairly standard,and reasonably priced, but it's really all about the setting, and I've always had... More

All four of is ordered cocktails but we were told that they only had beer or water!?! We each ordered a starter and a main course and it was really simple Indonesian food... More

Decent meal, nice staff. Average quality. Can't go wrong here. But better around. Had Jimbaran prawn option which was very good. Maybe a little small.
