Great little place. Staff are brilliant, from the local staff to the lovely French owner. We wanted fresh, tasty, local food and got all that and more. We're on Honeymoon so have been eating in nice and expensive (for Bali!) restaurants but a lot of these places are finicky and hyped. This meal was as good as any (better actually) and a fraction of the price. Menu is small but we knew we wanted something Asian and fresh. We got a rice and noodle version of a similar curry - both we're gorgeous. Creme caramel for dessert to top it off. With a glass of wine and a large beer it was in and around €14. Can't go wrong.

Make sure you make reservations because this place is TINY and super booked all the time! If I recall correctly it was only about 8 tables or so for the whole restaurant. The menu was on a chalkboard which we LOVED because to us that meant they were only using fresh/ seasonal ingredients. The food was DELICIOUS and with a shared appetizer, 2 mains, dessert and drinks the bill was still close to 20-30 usd!!! Staff was very warm welcoming and helpful, really a must do if staying in Ubud and able to get a reservation! Once we ate here we considered eating here for all of our remaining nights but we were too late with booking! : ( Will definitely come back if we make our way over to Bali again!!

After hearing enthusiastic talk about this restaurant my friend and I duly booked a table for last night. I am not sure what people's expectations are for this restaurant but we both thought that the chicken had been stewed rather than wokked leading to a very unsatisfactory texture in a just passable sauce which included beans. The accompanying eggplant was very unappetising
and the rice was just rice. Better meals are available in many warungs in Bali and this effort was certainly less than a suburban Chinese restaurant in Melbourne. It's amazing how people can be bedazzled by hype.

Great food with lovely flavours and a very warm and friendly welcome. would love to return! The food was very inexpensive but was really delicious. The French owner and her team made everyone of her guests feel special.

We visited twice during our week-long stay in Ubud and they were the best meals we had. I recommend making reservations because seating is limited and the secret is out that the food is delicious. The owners were such a lovely couple, very friendly to guests. Portions and prices are reasonable.
