We've eaten at Ibu Rai on 3 or 4 occasions and each time has been wonderful. The menu is non pretentious and comes as described each time. Dewa and his staff are very obliging and helpful. Thoroughly recommended.

My wife and I had dinner at the Ibu Rai twice recently whilst holidaying in Ubud and will definitely return during our next visit . The food was probably the best we ate during our month long stay in Bali and was reasonably priced, costing us approx $AU28 for two entrees, 2 mains, a large beer and bottle of sprite.... More

I had never heard of this restaurant until I walked past it by chance. The fact that it was full indicated that this must be a good place to eat. There is a history to this restaurant based on Ibu Rai herself and that is explained in the menu. The place was crowded with mostly families and kids and although... More

This was our 5th visit to Ubud and our 2nd to Ibu Rai. Just like the first time, our meals were excellent. Everything was tasty and well presented. We found the portion sizes were just right for 4 adults with healthy appetites. We did wait a while between entrees and main but the restaurant was VERY busy and the staff... More

We stopped in here for some drinks after a trip round the market. The place was nice and well maintained. They had a good selection of drinks and food. Prices seemed reasonable and they had quite a few customers whilst we were there which is a good sign. If we had more time in Ubud we try this place out... More

just amazing food, service, and presentation. Ibu Ray was the second restaurant during our stay in Ubud, and the best place where we have eaten in Indonesia so far. The starters were amazing: We had two platters of Calamaris (one fried, one stuffed) - a marvel. Then the two main courses came: The honey fried duck is very good, so... More

After chatting with a mother and daughter whilst enjoying a fish spa, they suggested trying this place. After vague directions and being told to look out for the love heart lanterns, we found this little spot. Happy we did, I enjoy a good story and it was nice to read the story of the lady who started it all while... More

It was complete luck that me and my friends stumbled across this restaurant. We were dropped off by our shuttle bus at 4 after travelling from the Gilis all day and went straight into the first busy restaurant we saw. The food was delicious especially my duck main course. Only issue was that I would have preferred a bigger portion... More

I feel slightly bad complaining about a $20 price tag for a meal for 2, but the fact of the matter is that many other places in Ubud offer comparable food and ambiance for 20-30% less. The food was nice and well presented and the ambiance OK (if a bit noisy due to the adjacent Monkey Forest Rd). Also, the... More
