Having eaten here before on previous trips to Bali, took our friends there for lunch. Walked in and were lucky enough to be shown to a table. Our friends wanted to try Balinese food and were very impressed. Tried a number of entrees before sharing main courses. Good serves, too full to eat dessert. Definitely a must for visitors to...

You need to book in advance to get a good seat, great indonesian food, they have western as well. If you book for 7pm, you can see the dancing at the temple across the lotus pond. Its a bit far off but you get the idea & it adds to the atmosphere. You can pay and see the performance if... More

We ate at this cafe because it was right by the water palace, and we were pleasantly surprised. We ate in the "outdoor" dining area. Which required you to remove your shoes and walk up a few stairs to the dining platform. There were no walls, but there was a roof. It was right next to the water from the... More

We visited mid Aug 2014 The staff were rude - they clearly do not want to be there let alone serve you. The food was even worse - I ordered a traditional Bali soup, by the time it got to me it was nearly cold. The french fries were soft and soggy (how can they not even know how to... More

We stopped here for lunch to combine with a visit to the Lotus Pond temple. The food was nice, maybe a bit pricey, but the setting was wonderful. It's a very busy part of town there, but the view is so tranquil. Our 5 year old walked around the lotus pond while waiting for his meal and we could keep... More

Popped in here for a quick drink while exploring Ubud, drinks were refreshing and cool, waiter was a mature woman who made us feel like an inconvenience (in Australian standards too) so we left and kept exploring. 17 years ago on my last trip I remembered going there to see a dance so I booked a front table for my...

We popped in just looking for a place to eat lunch, but they sat us at a table with a great view! The good was very good. I had a sandwich, loved the bread they used. My boyfriend had a local Balinese meal with a few different things on it. I'm giving this place a 4/5 because the service could... More

Stopped for lunch on the way back from the markets, it was close to the town centre. The menu was basic but the food was good.

Cafe Lotus is a institution in Ubud. Everyone goes there at some time or another. It has a lovely setting with impressive views over the lilly pond to temple especially at night. But Im afraid thats where it ends. I have just had lunch there and I regret to say it was appalling. Firstly the prices are ridiculous. Then they... More
