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.

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

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

Since my last review, the menu has been expanded. More good stuff to try. Quesadillas and tamales are great. Still the best cheeseburger in town.

Yesterday my girlfriend and I were looking for somewhere to watch the AFL and read rave reviews about The Melting Pot. It most certainly did not disappoint.

Does not have a very prepossessing appearance but Greg the owner is very accommodating about showing the sport of your choice. Big parking lot in front and the bar itself is rather barn like with most of the floor space taken up with pool tables. Several tvs and two large screens which can be set to different channels, though the... More

I was very happy to find this place as I was looking for somewhere in Ubud to watch the F1 GP. The owner was happy to put it on for us. The food was good the beer was really cold and staff friendly. All the flags are cool too. Good place to watch sport if you are in need!

Though we don't bill ourselves as sports bar, we continue to do everything we can to accommodate our sports enthusiast guests. Ice cold beer is, and always will be a high priority, thanks for noticing! Glad to know that you enjoyed yourself while here, thanks for taking the time to write a review. Cheers Greg More
