Grilled king prawns were beautiful. Lovely presentation and great flavour, big serving too.
Busy restaurant yet staff are still very attentive and lovely.

“Nice surprise find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Wandering along shopping in Ubud we stumbled onto this little spot. What a find, we were pleasantly surprised. They make very good cocktails and we spent many hours in the afternoon sitting here people watching and just watching the world go by. We decided to stay for dinner and the food was excellent and great value for money. The chicken curry and the grilled fish were sensational as was the dragonfly cocktail (among many others it was new to us!)
The staff were friendly and the service was good. We will be back and recommend to all our friends. Very central location in the heart of Ubud.

“Attentive service, beautifully cooked and presented food for a good price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

We had the best meal of our trip here. the food was presented as you would see in an expensive western restaurant and a range of various cultures dishes including Indonesian were on offer.The duck was tender, the seafood beautiful. The flavored were a step above the average restaurant in Ubud.The manager personally had a hat with us and was a lovely friendly man. You won't regret the choice.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

I had gado gado at Ibu Rai yesterday, I've eaten there on previous trips and enjoyed very much, unfortunately yesterday my meal was bland and tasteless and disappointing. I only ate a few bites.

The decor is pretty, however the cashier looked quite annoyed when I said I didn't enjoy my meal and didn't offer any apology.

I doubt I'll return.

“Really one of the best in Ubud”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Ok, so there really are a lot dining options in Ubud. And they vary from top end and expensive to cafe, cheap (and possibly life threatening).
This restaurant is such a good choice, we ate there everyday. Great value and generous meals, daily specials, nice decor, and super friendly service.
The menu is mix of Balinese, Asian and some western offerings. Everything we tried was excellent. We need to make special mention of a particularly excellent drink; a vanilla and lemongrass squash. On a hot and humid day (which is everyday in Bali)....it's worth stopping in just to try it.
