“Ok but you can find better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

The food was "alright" but overpriced considering you can find so many better places in Ubud to eat at. I would not really recommend this place to anyone when you can go to places like Melting Wook Warung and Fair Bale Warung instead.

“Mixed reactions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

We ate there twice during our one week stay in Ubud . The first time at lunch, most of us ordered seafood plates and they were EXCELLENT ! Service was also efficient and nice ! The second time , this time for dinner , we tried the ribs and a pork specialty ! The ribs were very hard and the pork was way overcooked . The place was also much noisier than at daytime and the staff seemed more nervous . I had ordered a beer and after waiting more than 10 minutes for it , I reminded the waitress about it and ended up with 2 beers in a 2 minutes interval !
The environment around the restaurant is nice and the place is very clean ! It was very easy to find a cab to go back to the hotel which is not the case with other restaurants in other areas of Ubud .

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

My Asian dish tasted like Chinese takeaway food from the Netherlands (like fastfood). The music didn't quite contribute to the ambiance; Sarah Conner's (German milennium onedayfly) voice came out of the speakers ;-). The service could be better. It seems like this restaurant is leaning too much on location rather than what I think should be their main focus, the quality of the food.

“ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Expensive but not too bad in terms of quality. As good as anywhere without being amazing. If you like the look of the place, go in but I wouldn't make a special journey

“Poor food, poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We ate here before the fire dance on Sunday evening. Our complaints are similar to those below - the food came out after 5 minutes, it was heated up frozen food. The pizza was from the supermarket and the mee goreng tasted like salty instant noodles. My friend ordered a smoothie that was meant to be orange, ginger and cucumber, but was pure cucumber juice. When we complained that it was un-drinkable, the staff suggested it was her own fault for picking something that she didn't like. The waitress reported it to the greeter who then pulled a face when she thought we weren't looking.

All in all, overpriced and horrible food with terrible service. Suggest to eat further down Jalan Monkey Forest in the smaller local (and much cheaper) restaurants for a lovely Balinese experience.
