“Great change of pace from standard Balinese food”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Balinese French fusion. Limited menu as others have stated. Their curry with coconut milk was excellent. As others have noted, it's more soupy rather than a thick curry. So eat it as a noodle soup. Each bite should have a spoonful of curry to go with it. I thought it was bland at first when I didn't do this. But then the flavors started to pop out in a surprising way and I couldn't get enough. Highly recommended.

The basil beef was the special of the day. It was too salty and the rice was undercooked a bit. Decent, but I would stick to the curry.

We went here the last night we were in ubud and were not disappointed. The host is lovely and offers a simple but delicious menu. I had the chicken curry with coconut milk,min still damning about it! All in all worth trying

“Tres Bien ..... Wonderful”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Had a delicious evening meal. Owner of the villa we are staying at recommended booking and after seeing the number of people they turned away on the night I recommend you do the same. We went with the specials and OMG they were delicious. Great concept; small restaurant focusing on small number of dishes done extremely well. If you can get a table I recommend visiting when your in Ubud. Great service - very attentive and nice atmosphere perched high above the road. Spotlessly clean and very reasonable. Tres Bien Melting Wok.

“Very busy small place with limited choice.”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We had to book a table as they appear to always be fully booked in the evening but you have a better chance at lunch time. We are real 'foodies' and were disappointed that there were no starters and the main course selection was very limited. This may be down to the logistics as it is a very small place. Enjoyed our dessert. Reasonable cost but do not quite understand the other rave reviews, probably just us.
