“GOOD LOCAL RECOMMENDATION”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Was recommended to try this restaurant out by a local working in a nearby bar. Liked the historical background of the owners Grandmother Ibu Rai who's hard work and bringing up her children alone as a widow, prompted the naming of the restaurant. Very clean, pleasant staff, who were very attentive and quick to serve you on arrival. Prices were really reasonable, had a traditional nasi goreng with shrimp, the complimentary duck was a shame as a non meat eater but very nice touch nevertheless.

Would definitely recommend and after tonight's meal will return during my stay. Good recommendation.

“Low Prices - Good Food - Nice Restaurant”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

The Ibu Rai Restaurant is definately good value for money.

If you decide to visit Ubud during the High Season, a RESERVATION at Ibu Rai will be needed for 7PM dining as the place fills its seats quickly. Even during Low Season Ibu Rai has noticiably more diners than restaurants down the street.

After dining at Ibu Rai well over 10 times, I have always been pleased with the prices, menu selection, quality, and above all, the PRESENTATION of the meals.

Whilst the menu isnt too large, its well balanced including Western, Indonesian, Vegetarian, and has a very good selection of drinks and deserts.

The restaurant has always been clean, and the staff have always been prompt and knowledgable with the menu.

The Ibu Rai is a relaxed dining experience where I am sure the price of the meals compared against the quality and presentation will pleasently surprise you.

For the better experience, I would suggest a table for 2 be away from the street and along the garden which surrounds the restaurant.

“Good beverage but average food”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

We visited this place the first time we arrived in Ubud, mainly because its the closest restaurant to our hotel. The place looks lovely and cozy. There are several guests there, so we thought we would give it a try. The beverage I ordered was very good, it was the Vanilla Lemongrass Squash, which was exceptionally good. Perfect mixture of ingredients. But the food were overall average in quality. The presentation is nice, but maybe they could try to add a little more herbs to create a stronger flavor. Overall, a nice place to visit, especially for their beverages.

“Sublime”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

The most delicious, freshly squeezed juices - perfect for a hot Balinese day. Every mouthful of food delights. The service is excellent and the restaurant manages to capture the perfect balance of relaxed but elegant.

“Delicious!!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Once we stumbled upon this place we kept going back. The meals are delicious, made with fresh ingredients and beautifully presented. Do yourself a favour and have a smoothie - they're the best!
