The food was good and the surroundings beautiful but the experience ruined by the unfriendly service. We felt unwelcome and were rudely spoken to when waiting to order.

Leaves & Fishes is the ultimate experience - perfection on all accounts! Their food is absolutely delicious & best of all they are accommodating to people with allergies, intolerances (df, gf catered to beautifully). They have the best chicken wings I have ever tasted! I...have had every dish on the menu (many times) & I every item is always the same impeccable standard! Their service is impeccable - friendly, professional & always very attentive. The scenery is so lush with gorgeous grounds, beautiful plants & the seating is so well set out - absolutely COVIDSafe! This is our family favourite & I would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful meal out! Well done Leaves & Fishes, you set the bar so high!More

At a time when were in much need a little bit of calm, relaxation, peace and to escape the stressors of life and the world, it was so refreshing to see a restaurant following a COVID-19 Safety Plan to keep staff and all patrons safe....Many thanks for the care taken to continue to provide excellent service, sumptuous food, good wine, great coffee and desserts, all with the opportunity to dine in such picturesque and tranquil environment. Well done, during these difficult times!More

I’m not the type of person who leaves bad reviews of restaurants normally, but the bad experience we had at this particular restaurant has urged me to do one. We were a group of families who went there looking to dine in for lunch yesterday...when the female owner rudely asked us to leave because there were too many of us and that they can’t accomodate us. We politely asked if our group can be separated and will not mingle around with each other as we respect the covid restrictions of any restaurant, but this was not entertained as well. Instead, she told us that it’s not going to work that way because she knows that we’re a big group. We didn’t feel welcome at all and we basically got kicked out. She even asked our other family members who were waiting outside to leave telling them “Excuse me but your party is leaving now.” We went to another restaurant after this and have had no problems at all at being accommodated. I DO NOT recommend going to this restaurant at all.More

We last went to Leaves and Fishes about five years ago and we looked forward to returning. Sadly I found it overpriced and the food very average. There was only one other table with people dining when we arrived for lunch. My husband and I...shared the tuna tartare for entree. The sauce was far too cloying and sweet. We ordered a semillon and I was surprised when our waitress warned us it was very dry. Perhaps the restaurant is attracting people who prefer sweet wines. My grilled fish and chips was fine but ordinary and not worth $37. My husband had the fried whole snapper, and again it came covered with a very sweet sauce. The location is lovely, service was friendly but the food was a huge disappointment.More

We visited Leaves & Fishes for lunch this weekend for our 14th wedding anniversary. Everything we ate was perfect. Enjoyed every mouthful.

We come here every couple of years when we visit the area. It was a wonderful find for us, tucked away and a bit of a secret. Again we had a lovely lunch with good wine at a reasonable price.

This location is really lovely and feels like anywhere in Ubud. Chilled decor and the setting on the dam with views of palm trees takes you some where else. While this is very pleasing the menu was not inspiring, and there was little choice in...the wine menu. Given we are in the Hunter Valley wine region, this is hard to forgive. Service mediocre, and the duck and chicken were really dry. May have been a bad night, but would not go back as this is not an inexpensive restaurant.More

I find leaves & fishes to be one of the freshest, tastiest restaurants in all of the Hunter Valley. The setting is relaxed yet classy with a Balinese feel. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. I’ve tried most of the dishes and can’t fault...them. The duck curry is absolutely delicious!More
