I visited this lovely place back in 1993 with my family and we fell in love with the setting. It was a sea of tranquility in the midst of a then fairly busy little town. The food was lovely too. My husband and I went back again in 2007 and found that it had changed very little. Stepping in the... More

This was another restaurant in an amazing location. I was sitting on the ground facing the water ponds and temple, with a performance at the temple whilst I ate. Sitting where I was sitting, you did have to buy a ticket to the performance, but it was good. Service was great, food was great, atmosphere was amazing.

Cafe Lotus had a great view of the temple and there was a dance performance on at the time I went. If you are willing to pay extra money you get to sit at tables closest to this viewpoint. The food was nice but the staff weren't nice.

Average food but value for the money. Menu has the local dishes and prices are reasonable. The view to the pond with water lilies and carps is really nice. Friendly staff. Credit cards are accepted.

It was nice to see the show but did not have to be part of it. This was also easier with the kids. Food was quite expensive, but there was really nothing special in it, even when we ate some kind of balinese speciality. Had it better in other place and lower price. The service was friendly.

We've eaten here twice this week. Yummy club sandwich with chips n cold beer and today samosas and a chicken n avocado salad. If it was only about the food, probably wouldn't rush back but so lovely to have the water, Lilly pads n temple in front as you eat. Tried the traditional Balinese fried bananas today for dessert and... More

We dined here at sunset after spending the day in Ubud. Our driver had recommended it and it was lovely. We sat on cushions and marveled at the view of the temples and pond. Just spectacular! We even watched a bride doing a photo shoot. There is a large varied menu and the service was good. The food was good... More
