Hate giving negative reviews, but this was a dismal experience. The service was poor (by all standards not even Bali standards); I don't think anyone smiled once. They seemed completely uninterested in taking our order (it was 1:45 on a Friday). We ordered several drinks and food dishes for three of us. The key dish, crispy duck, which was advertised... More

The setting at Dirty Duck is great during the day and very peaceful. The food was very tasty. I would recommend the gado gado and the duck. The service was a little slow, but was fine since the setting was good!

A large restaurant, great for families or large groups. Most in our group had duck, the crispy duck which we all enjoyed.

Was having dinner there as it was recommended by friends but it was quite dirty as there were flies everywhere.( at least 10 around my table ) and I could not even eat at all. Therefore I have no choice but to have all the food take away( only had 1 bite on the duck. ) so I ask the... More

I have to say this balinese crispy duck is very average compare to the chinese similar dish. it's no taste at all. totally over rated. the other roasted duck is even better. Not sure why it's so popular in chinese. And the pricing is very high. not good value. Although the envioronment is nice.

This is a huge sprawling restaurant which always seemed crowded and popular with tour groups. The back section where we were runs alongside a pleasant garden. It looks like the smaller, open 'rooms' on the other side of the garden are part of the restaurant too, which may be more pleasant. Their famous crispy duck was ok but nothing special... More

I love the food. We ordered the food from the menu which needs to be ordered 24 hours before. It is a full meal and sufficient for two people. You must try this place by at least visiting once. You can book in advance for a place near rice paddy fields without chairs.

In Ubud this is a must stop for lunch or dinner. it oversees a rice field and they serve mainly duck. order it grilled or deep fried its good. avoid the grill seafood platter.

Bebek Bengil is the special food in Ubud, you have to try this kind of food in Ubud but it is pretty expensive in this restaurant. You can try dirty duck at another restaurant. The restaurant is nice but there are many mosquitoes in the evening and the staff didn't act professionally. They should guide the guest how to eat... More
