We went as we were told by a frequent Bali visitor that it was an interesting place, it was. The food is pub food knock off type burgers etc, décor was interesting with flags, pool tables, soccer table etc but there was no atmosphere. We had a burger and a pie, was over cooked, but the beers were cold. It... More

I first went to melting pot about 5 years ago and befriended the owner, and I have returned time after time again as a satisfied customer. Greg (the owner) is a quiet gentleman who prefers to stay out of the way and out of the limelight and let others enjoy his bar as they have now for these five years.... More

First I want to publicly thank the owner for recording the world cup so we could come back and watch it. Second, they make a mean hamburger! And my friend loved their hot dog. Yup we were craving some westernized food and they delivered. The reason I didn't give it 4 stars is on both occassions we needed to go... More

Having just left (from the Melting Pot!) Ubud after a wonderful three month stay, I feel like I have spent enough time at this place to add my thoughts: The Melting Pot has delicious food. True Western fare, hot and fresh and yummy. The beer is objectively the coldest in Ubud, the pool tables are nice, the ping pong is... More

Melting pot is awesome and as international as its name! Their display of flags is really impressive and interesting. We come often to play pool and have some beers. Its really spacious and has a great chilled vibe that suits Ubud. They have great popcorn too.

It's an okay place, but only go if you need to watch sports or you want to play pool. There are a lot nicer and cheaper place to grab a beer in Ubud. I tried the burger, it was pretty good to be in Indonesia, but nothing special.

Thanks much for taking the time to review the Melting Pot. I agree that there are nicer places to grab a beer. I also agree that there are cheaper places to grab a beer. But disagree that there are nicer and cheaper places. I know of a very nice place but they charge Rp. 100,000 for a small Bintang whereas... More

Basically Melting Pot is a pool place, there are several tables and the hall is very big. I went there for an afternoon drink (the pub opens early) and I felt comfortable. A large Bintang is 45000idr (cvs price is 30000, but it's a big pub, no complain). You can watch sport on tv. I went there also in the... More

Thanks much for taking the time to write a review. Suffice to say, I agree, that if you don't like western food and $4 or $5 for an entree' is more that you'd like to spend, our menu is not for you. The menu is entirely western and it can be viewed in advance on our website. Our most expensive... More

It's not every day an American goes out of their way but this guy does it with ease. This is the only place in town that will play rugby so get there early as the owner needs to rig it up! He was happy to oblige and with satellite issues many would have given up on it! If only my... More

The Melting Pot was recommended as a good place to catch some World Cup games. My boyfriend and I decided to check it out and it provided a nice, laid back atmosphere to have a few beers and watch some sports. The service is excellent and the popcorn we had was perfectly-popped. Greg, the owner, is ultra-hospitable and even downloaded... More

Had to try the signature dishes, a classic American style cheese burger than comes with wedge fries and and comes potato wedge fries...ummm ummm good. And of course some Texas chili, a little heavy on smoky hickory thing going on there but guess that's the way they do it in Texas, and you don't mess with Texas. Classic rock in... More
