“Nice Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Only visited once, but the two local dishes were very nice and reasonably priced. If it wasn't so far from our Hotel, we would've visited more often.

“Catch the cool breezes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

This is a gem in Ubud. The cafe catches the cool breezes coming off the rice terraces. The view is lovely and the food good. Fairly basic and simple, but very nice.

“Perfect place for a snack or drink and watch Ubud go by”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

As Bali is hot and drinks a must this was the perfect place for relaxing and re-hydrating. The staff were just lovely, the place clean and a great spot for respite during an afternoon storm.Tropical is located on Monkey Forest Road not far from the markets.

We particularly recommend the 'detox' minty lime juice concoction and the fresh fruit juices. We stopped on at least three occasions just for drinks as it is a nice place to watch the action up and down the road and see Balinese people going about their day.

The menu is extensive and fairly priced.

“Fantastic view and nice food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Well, this place lives up to it's name. What a great view! A steep set of steps up from the curving lower part of Monkey Forest Road takes you up to Tropical View, where an outdoor cafe maximises it's view of rice paddies, replete with squawking ducks and farmers moving about the field.

The breeze is refreshing, and so is the laid back ambience of the place. The dozen or so tables were manned by just one person when we visited, who was pleasant and attentive.

My wife and I both ordered lunch, with Balinese Coffee, which hit the spot. The food was simply presented but good, not something to rave about, however the prices were cheap and the view had our attention for most of the meal.

A nice spot to unwind for an hour, after the hustle and bustle of the street below.

“Best coffee in Ubud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

When you're a coffee lover it can be a frustrating time in Bali trying to find a really good cappuccino. So when a fellow traveller I met at my hotel in Ubud recommended I go to Tropicana in the Monkey Forest Road (near the corner of Jalan Raya) I was sceptical. But what a find!

Their small espresso machine, ably worked by a Balinese barista, produced a great coffee that was as good as any I've ever bought at home, and I'm really fussy about my coffee. It was much better (and cheaper) than the coffees I had at Casa Luna and Cafe Wayan. Highly recommended.
