“Just great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Abe Do is probably one of the most cosy and lovely place in Bali!
The owner, Nyoman is very friendly and will make you feel like you are at home! Food and drinks are excellent, fresh and very tasty. From the starters to the dessert (try the banana balinese pisang goreng! Just incredible), it was really amazing!
Thanks to Nyoman who is a great chef and artist! If you are in Ubud, you should definitely go there!

Really fresh salads and great organic choices. Open at 8;30 am for breakfast as well. Nyoman is a wonderful host. Great decor. Lots of interesting art and a real
Cute place to Eat. Try the Abe do green salad and the grilled chicken with yummy mashed potato. Funky little green shop front. You can't miss it.

“Great Food, Amazing Host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We decided for our last night in Ubud that instead of revisiting somewhere we had gone before we would try Abe Do and we were so happy we did. The owner Nyoman is the most welcoming host I have ever met and it truly felt as though he was bringing you into his home and his world. He spent the evening regaling us with stories about Bali, talking about his work as an artist, his hopes for the local community and his experiences. All of this would have been for naught if the food wasn't good, but it was, in fact it was excellent. His milkshakes are some of the best I have ever had. My grilled chicken with mashed potato was lovely and I will agree that it may very well be the best in Bali. My wife's fish in banana leaves was perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned and altogether lovely. The portions on offer were very generous and the overall experience of eating here was second to none. There is a reason this place is ranked so highly in Bali, it is just that good.

“Delicious with great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I am living up the road from Abe-Do Warung at the moment and have had many a great meal there. The spring rolls and pisang goreng are especially fab.

“Amazing ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

It all started as shy accidental visit. It ended in everyday's feast for 11 day in a row, enjoyed among new friends, feeling as cosy as at home.

There are many organic restaurants in Ubud, but Abe-do Organic is something special. Not because it is a small, cosy, simply but beautifully decorated place, filled with paintings. It is special because of its owner Nyoman, man with heart big as Bali island. He will greet you with gigantic smile. If you let him (and only if you let him) he will help you relax with hearty laughs and then help you choose something you will lick fingers afterwards.

And because of Nyoman Abe-do is not just another organic wannabe-fancy-overpriced-gourmet place. Prices are amazingly normal. Meals have no seducing poetic names. They are simple, but absolutely delightful and beautifully decorated. They are prepared with love as everything else here. Abe-do is a family business and when you gradually meet Nyoman sons and wife (all with BIG smiles) you understand why eating at Abe-do is like coming home. In those 11 days me, wife and 2-years old daughter have tested almost two thirds of Nyoman's menu and there wasn't one meal who deserved less than highest grade. I don't remember the last time I experience something like it.

But even that is not the best we experienced at Abe-do. The best was his and his family's total dedication to make us parents as relaxed as possible. All of them were playing and laughing with our daughter for hours, showing her toys or domestic animals. Being in Abe-do wasn't only the most tasteful time in Ubud, but also the most peaceful and relaxed. I would give Nyoman's family 7 stars for that, but only 5 are allowed here.

Odds are we would probably missed Abe-do altogether if we weren't living close to it. It's not situated in the very centre of Ubud, but close enough. When you are on the Ubud's main road, head east and turn left towards Botanic Garden, on Jalan Tirta Tawar road. After less then 1,5 km there is Abe-do with its sign with relaxed green frog.

Forget all worries, come in and surrender to Nyoman.
