This place has a good menu. The simple food tastes fantastic. I recommend the Laksa, and the Beef stew was amazing also. We walked all around Ubud checking menus and this was by far the best. Great comfort food.

Incredible food, good service, for once in Indonesia all the food came at the same time ;) nice atmosphere, a little(very little) bit more pricey than other places but the quality of the food is worth the little extra!!

We went to this restaurant on our trip to monkey's forest. I liked the atmosphere. Service was professional and staff were friendly. Food was delicious and large size and prices were fair. There was a history of founder of this restaurant on menu which showed their long time service.

Amazing food at great prices. Best desert in Ubud, chocolate mousse is to die for, went back multiple times. It is nice if you get one of the tables outside near the footpath. Was busy one night and we couldn't get a table, if you can book, I would recommend. Authentic and traditional dishes, as well as Westernized options.

Everyone else seems to be happy with the food here so maybe my I just ordered the wrong thing. I just woke up today craving a beef burger, something hard to come by in Ubud. It was ok. Not bad. Just not great. The beef tasted weird -like one of those burgers they server you at 3 star hotel bars.... More

This was our first trip to Ibu Rai but won't be our last. Ate outside under the stars on a beautiful evening in Ubud. Menu was expansive and offered dishes for all. Food very reasonably priced.

We have eaten three times at this place, for dinner. The food is great, especially the indonesian / fusion dishes, and not too expensive, expeciially compared to other places with the same character. The atmosphere is great too, with medium-low lights and not too crowded table (chose the backroom).

Me and my wife had a wonderful dinner. We walked by and it was full although some places near were almost empty, after some walking we decided to head back to the restaurant and around 2040 we had a nice table for 2 at the front of the restaurant. The interior is very nice, the service was really fast and... More

Yes, Ibu Rai has all the traditional Balinese/Indonesian meals but also has some very good additional items - the coriander duck is very good! The food is always good, clean and fresh. There are daily specials such as Thai beef salad at about USA $5 which are good value. Apart from the normal range of fruit juices they also have... More

I visited over a year ago and returned again recently. The good is high quality for a fair price, with delicious flavor combinations and generous portions. My favorite meal is the coriander duck and the rice paper rolls are great when they are in season.it has a lovely dinner atmosphere.
