I was impressed by the green juice and pesto spaghetti I had in 2017. This year I still had a great woodfire pizza in March. Seating is nice and clean, a guy named Kadek took our temperatures and nicely pointed us to the handwashing station....There was no pizza. We were served by a trainee who is hmmmm....not so smart. At least they should have received a short briefing on the menu. The pesto wasn't bad but not great either. Very different from June 3017 after my mum's passing. Moreover, it was fetuccini and not spaghetti. I only decided for green vegies which was not bad but the only sambal they brought me was a bottled one. Well, as I was hungry I ate supermi I bought at Cocomart on my beautiful terrace at Cendana Resort.More

The food was so so.. lazy staff, doesnt want to give a bill.. ‘pay in front’. When paying in front and wanting to pay with an Indonesian BCA debit card the staff wants to charge 3%. 1) this is forbidden by Indonesian law 2) the...% the merchant pays to the bank is 0.15%. In other words the owner tries to steal your money and breaks the law. Asking for the manager, there is non. Whatsapped the owner about this after given a phonenumber, just read, no reply, hence my review. Also the arrogant, law breaking behavior of cashier Kadek was unacceptable.More

We had a catastrophic dinner. Unpleasant staff and the dinner was not eatable. We had half of it and told them we couldnt eat and wanted to see the manager They were obviously afraid and there was no manager. Lots of discussion and they offered...10 % discount - a joke Then we talked to the staff in the kitchen - also catastrophy. They offered 50 % discount - stupid I red after that so many people have complained about this place Since years Its a puré tourist trap - avoid this place. There is no reason to visit They must have a really ugly manager, because of all the complaints Dont go!!!!More

My god I thought that I had walked into a hipster baristas annual convention, but then decided it was a meeting place for people with no legs as the patrons all seemed to be dancing just with some sort of slow hand movements. The music...that was also being played by the patrons was rather depressing and I fear these people will be keeping the makers of Valium very rich once they reach their 40s. On the up side it did give us a laugh watching the greeting hugs that went on for that embarrassing 3 to 30 seconds too long which was the reason I first gave two stars but the sangria wasn’t too bad so I’ve now given 3 stars.More

I stayed Ubud for a couple of months and spent a good amount of my nights at Soma. I love the owner Johnny who always makes me feel like at home and one of the stuff member called Kadek who is truly the most kindest...person I’ve ever met. Thank you Soma for the good food, nice drinks, great music and chill vibe! A definite recommendation if you’re a musician or any type of artist!More

Where do we start with this place? I put the only positive in the title. Other than that, not a lot going for it. The overall menu is haphazard- looks like an attempt to throw together local foods and superfoods/health foods randomly without thought to...a consistent texture, temperature or taste. Like they just want to say they have kale on the menu no matter what they throw in with it (i.e. noodles). At first glance we thought there would be a great variety of salads but after reading the full description we went with the side salad, which ended up with a flavorless dressing. Bruschetta, as others have said, comes out soggy because of overdose of pesto. And as others have said, some food comes out too fast to entertain the notion it's fresh-- pizza came out about 1-2 minutes after apps came and was underdone. Sizes on certain items are small for the price. The music is also unbelievably bad-- it's just a little too loud and is the worst wannabe folk songs in the vein of 60s Americana you could ever imagine-it's like someone gave an artificial intelligence program the task of writing hippie songs- this is another item that gives this place a disjointed feel- the natural/jungle look would work with instrumental, soft music or similar. This is also one of those places that shows the food prices as average compared to others on the menu, then holds back your bill until you're literally walking out the door with a cashier, to which point you find the tax plus a service charge added on. For us that came to an additional 40,000 and we share every I'm sure on average most people get hit more. If you want to pay by card they want yet another 3 percent. Does the wait staff even see any of the service charge? Who knows. At any rate, there are plenty more places with creative healthy menus along this same street to try that certainly execute their ideas better.More

This is really a restaurant where you get delicious food. Vegetarian but also some with fish. The staff is very friendly and professional. You dont have to wait. I have tried sallads and dessert and I must say this is well above many places in...Ubud.’ I will for sure return!More

I agree staff uninterested. Apathetic. Looks tired and soulless. I was going to eat in a late lunch but chose to take away the caramel cheesecake which was delicious. Pity the 5 staff at front desk were chatting and inattentive. The place was empty. Very...disappointing experience compared to past visits.More

We have been there on Christmas Evening and found atmosphere very relaxing and service nice. That was the end of positive experience. We have ordered bruschetta and grilled zucchini for starter and mediterran pizza and grilled salmon with capers sauce as main coarse. Bruschetta had...nothing in common with Italian antipasti: white bread of low quality not roasted and smeared with pesto!!! Zucchini and Pizza were ok but small and had no spices on them. Highlight of this evening was grilled salmon with capers sauce, mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. Salmon was cold and dry, no salt or pepper. Vegetables were ok but no spices as well. Mashed potatoes had nothing to do with potatoes taste at all. It was some slimy pale liquid substrate presumably from ready make package diluted with plane water. It was also smelly as old fridge when we paid at cash desk. Overall it could have been a nice place but need drastic improvement of cooking there.More

Such a lovely setting, but such disappointing food! So bland. I had the quinoa bowl and it was ok, good to have veggies but just tasted of coconut oil. My partner had a veggie pizza and it was really disappointing. We weren’t affected too much...by the service but tables all around us were waiting for a very long time just to order food. A lot of frustrated faces. There was only 3 waitresses for the entire restaurant. Wouldn’t recommend.More

Ok, you walk in and there is nobody there. You order and even then they can’t bring them out at the same time...? Second, when I order a glass of water I expect it to be cold. What I got was a warm glass, with...warm water... How hard can it be to serve a glass of cold water?! So, steer away. Choose somewhere else...!More

This restaurant advertised itself as a wood fired pizza place with healthy options. It looked amazing from the outside. However, once we had been left choosing our meals for a while our order was taken and then we were told pizza was sold out! Also...only two lasagne left.... A party of five, three of us were served within ten minutes and the other two were served at least 20 minutes later, after our three meals were completed and table cleared. The food was below average and staff gave no apologies for kitchen mismanagement. Would not recommend as not good value for money and plenty of better places to eat in Ubud.More
