This place has some really good food but it is not always consistent.
We have gone to Ibu Rai twice now, both times in the same week. Both times I ordered the same curry because when I tried it the first time I died and went to heaven because it was so good. But on the second visit the curry was more runny and had a different texture. It was still okay but definitely not as good as the first time. I would like to go back here and try it once more and hopefully it will be a case of third time lucky.
The atmosphere is good here, there aren't that many tables so you would have to make sure you got there early or had a booking. The staff are really friendly as well.

This is a good restaurant with a great story. They have a great location and while they were busy the service was good. Not too many vegetarian options though.

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.

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.
