A lovely spot with good food

I used to visit Bali often in the 1980s and was pleasantly surprised on my recent trip to find that Cafe Lotus was still in business. The setting is wonderful, an open air restaurant overlooking a lotus pond and temple. I watched a Balinese dance lesson on the temple steps as I ate, then listened... read more

Wouldn't say the food is amazing here, there are other local warungs with better food and cheaper prices. We only came here for a good lunch view of the lotus garden. Staff was a little rude, impatient with taking our order.

We were walking back from dinner when it started pouring rain. Decided to stop into Cafe Lotus for a drink and wait out the rain. We were in the process of being seated by one of the wait staff when the manager? owner? Older, Western gentleman, told my brother-in-law that unless we had a reservation we could not be seated...

Good setting over looking the lotus gardens and temple. The night we went there was a colourful event on at the temple which was easily viewable as we eat. The menu is extensive and the food at mid range prices. The service is quick and efficient. If you are after good food at a fair price in an easy accessible... More

Located downtown Ubud on the main street overlooking the lotus garden. Awesome location but a little bit expensive for Ubud standard. Guest can go across the garden and take amazing shots.

Really only worth to visit if you are there for the daily Balinese dance performances (different dance every day starting at 7:30pm) at the nearby Saraswati temple with a beautiful lotus pond. Food was OK, a little overpriced but the front terrace was the place to sit and enjoy the dance the best. You still have to pay for the... More

Excellent food and good service with an AMAZING view on the lotus pond in front of Pura Taman Kemuda Saraswati, a major temple in Ubud. Make sure to book a table for dinner just next to the pond when there is a Balinese dance show . Outstanding !!! (You can book both dinner and the show at the restaurant)
