Unique, Upscale, Romantic Restaurant along the banks of a River lit with 300 candles every night + great food & service

Very Unique dinner experience at Swept & Away. Great Value with reasonable and affordable prices, great tasting food and excellent friendly and attentive services with a smile. No wonder Bali especially Ubud is a Paradise on Earth.

The restaurant is located right along the banks of the Ayung River in Ubud and offers an amazing view of nature. The service is impeccable and we were pleasantly surprised to receive a cake on the house when the staff heard that we were on our honeymoon. The food was delicious and again, we were surprised when the chef came... More

What started off as a miscommunication with staff ended up being an amazing night. My partner and i opted for a romantic candle lit dinner and was amazed at the effort that was put in by the staff to make it exactly that, flower petals were laid on the path down to the riverside setting literally less than a metre...

Were here with my girlfriend for a dinner during our stay in Bali and really enjoyed the romantic setting on the restaurant's terrace next to the River. Staff was extremely polite and friendly, but never crossed the border and respected your privacy. Big enough menu list and great chef, amazing dinner. Highly Recommended!

We had dinner at Swept Away one night during our trip to Ubud. The restaurant is in the most unique and romantic settings, right beside a river and surrounded by jungle. The staff was excellent and the food was extremely good. A little expensive by Bali standards but we thought it was well worth the romantic setting.

We had our anniversary dinner by the river and were literally swept away by the beautiful atmosphere and surrounding. To make it even better, the service was great and the food was amazing.

We booked here a romantic dinner next to the river and it was just perfect and so lovely! The employees were so kind and gave us all their attention. They decorated the table so nice with flowers and candles. If you want to surprise your darling with a lovely romantic dinner, then you should come here!

First visit to Ubud and Bali and we wanted someplace special to celebrate a birthday and found Swept Away on Tripadvisor. We intended to have a special meal but dine quickly so we could see a dance show afterward in Ubud, but were enjoying the setting, ambiance, special cocktails (including dark & stormy with fresh ginger, and festive passion fruit...

This is a beautiful location with a river that runs down the bottom of the restaurant. For the 101 candles experience you are taken down to a private seating area on the waters edge and served cocktails until the sun goes down. This is when the magic happens as the hundreds of candles they have prepared on the rocks in... More
