“Don't bother!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Not the place it once was. Cold tasteless food and warm drinks, coupled with slow unfriendly service.

“NO NO NO NO!!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

Tourist trap, highly overpriced and putrid food. Mild food poisoning(diarrhea) recieved here by my girlfriend and myself.
Nearly all tours from south Bali, ubud end up here. The drivers must get a kickback. If you end up here do not eat or you may regret it later.

“One to avoid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

We tried the Crispy Duck, which had been recommended to us by friends, and after our experience, I'm seriously questioning their taste level! The duck was okay, but there was very little meat on the bone, quite dry, sides were awful and for IDR 95,000 didn't represent good value.

The restaurant also felt dirty and bit smelly (maybe from the paddy field?). It was quite dark, even on a sunny afternoon and we left feeling thoroughly disappointed, and a little worried about potential food poisoning (although in fairness, this didn't transpire.)

Definitely would not return.

“Beautiful View, Relaxed Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

Asked some locals outside the markets where we could eat overlooking the rice paddy's. This was their recommendation, and my first experience of dodgy looking lane ways leading to something fantastic! 4 crispy ducks and 1 fish later we were enjoying the whole experience so we stayed for dessert. After a mix up with the waitress thinking we had already ordered it and complaining that we hadn't received it, we managed to fit in some delectable banana dishes.
Prices were reasonable and the staff were friendly. The place was rather busy and we'd be hard pressed to get a lovely meal like that at home, wasting away a couple of hours with that view, without being shuffled out the door to make room for more customers.
A great time had by 5 happy ladies :D

“Very touristy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

Not my ideal place but it was clean and had a large range of food. Had the Crispy Duck, not bad but nothing I'd go back for. Aneka Sate's were good. Great view and the staff were friendly.
