We ordered a platter, much more expensive than most of the delicious food we've been eating in other places but thought we'd treat ourselves. Menu said we would have to wait 25 mins, but food arrived in less than 10, flat cold, and not very tasty at all. Service was poor, we weren't the only dissatisfied customers In tonight. If... More

The setting is really really beautiful, but my husband and I had a really bad meal. He even had some pickled vegetables with his that appeared to have gone off. I would have given two stars but the kids loved their toasted cheese and ham sandwiches!

enjoy a beautifully presented meal within the ambience of a high caliber restaurant which overlooks the massive lilly pond at the front of the central Temple. Most people pay to watch the cultural dancers perform on stage in front of the Temple but if you choose your evening meal time right, you can eat sumptuous delights while enjoying the view... More

We visited this restaurant / cafe twice. Once for lunch where we sat up the side in the pagodas and had a lunch of tapas which was really good. We returned one evening for dinner and to see the dancing. The food was OK but the setting was perfect. Average service but nothing to really complain about. If you want... More

The waitress was apparently lazy to climb up the steps to serve us. She would stand outside the 'pavilion' and hand over the dishes. The food was expensive and below average. We stayed in Ubud several days and tried many restaurants. This was the worst value of money.

Sorry to say this, but our food was less than average. Although we enjoyed the nice setting we were very disappointed about the meal quality. Better to go there for a drink or two and afterwards find an appropriate place for dinner.

We were lucky to get a seat at Cafe Lotus as we didn't have a reservation and there was an entertainment show on just across the pond. I like the idea and the experience of their nighttime service, but i think for their prices, food could be a tad better. Service was great but for the size of the place,... More
