We've been here a few times over the last few years and it continues to be a peaceful haven in the middle of what is becoming a very busy Ubud. The food is like most in Bali, a mixture of local and western food and both meals we had here were very good, as was the service. The kids complained... More

The setting here, overlooking the lotus ponds, is very special. We enjoyed good service and food ... not exceptional but good. We bought tickets for and stayed for the Balinese Show afterwards which everyone should see once. The advice of a previous reviewer was no longer correct in that if you buy tickets for the show from the restaurant, they... More

This place is so peaceful. They have an area if you want to sit on the floor with a great view of the temple or you can choose to sit at the tables. The tables still have a great view. The temple is right behind the restuarant and has water around it. Great for a drink or lunch/dinner.

My husband and I stumbled upon Cafe Lotus and were so glad we did! The food was great, but the setting was even better. We selected a table where we could sit on pillows, which created a romantic atmosphere. For an additional charge, you can watch the nightly dance show that is put on in the garden. Overall, wonderful experience.

The beautiful lotus pond at Cafe lotus is a sanctuary away from Ubud's busy main street on a hot humid day . We had a drink, a toasted sandwich and some dumplings to refuel, all of which wee fine, but it's the outlook over that beautiful pond that warrant the visit.

Been coming to this restaurant for many years and enjoy the view over the Lotus pond. Food good and service fine. I love the duck dish and find the menu varied and interesting. Have never been disappointed. My only negative is that when busy it is noisy and feels crowded.

This place was recommended by a friend that had been in Ubud a few years ago, i am sure that these years between her visit and mine didn't bring good things to this restaurant. WORST service received at Bali. It was a rainy day and we were completely wet, all i wanted was get a nice spot to sit and... More

This restaurant is located in the center of Ubud, next to Pura Saraswati, a perfect tourist trap. We had lunch here, but we couldn't enjoy our meal. The only good thing about this place is the beautiful view of Pura Saraswati and its lotus pond.

We chose this restaurant after looking on tripadvisor and it seemed OK. My partner had the mixed satay sticks and I had the slow cooked duck. All was going pretty average all night with the drinks and service, until the food came out. My wifes satay chicken was raw, and the duck which was supposedly cooked for 12 hours was... More

Lotus was recommended on the top 10 places to eat at in Ubud ... yup yup so I am a foodie & if you're restaurant is in the top 10 then besides the menu proce refelcting that, your service & food has to also meet the standards. By far our most expensive meal in Bali & most disappointing. Honestly I... More
