This hideout is tucked away in the centre of ubud so easy to reach. It's upstairs and is quite small but they seem to be very accommodating in creating extra tables. Food is wonderful! Gets busy and they couldn't make us desert as they were too busy which was a shame. Worth the trip if you need a tasty meal.

Dear friends, dear visitors...

Thank you for your coming in the Fair Warung Balé, a program of the Fair Future Foundation - An Swiss NGO. Our small place is unique and 100% Fair, probably the fairest place ever.

I just wanted to say thank you... Thank you for coming to eat delicious meals in our small workshop, our little bistro, thank you for bringing us so much love, heart and courage. And thank you for supporting us in what we do for the poor and the poorest.

Our clinic is now complete and nearly finished! We expect the visit of health services in the area of Bali, today I hope. The first patients have already arrived for treatment...

Yesterday, the Foundation has also agreed to fund medical examinations of newborns from the local area of Ubud. These examinations will be held every month at the clinic beyond Foundation, which is located just below the Fair Warung Balé. Everything is fully funded and paid by the Fair Warung Bale and 16 young beneficiaries who work every day of the week (except Sunday).

Thank you very very much for your help and your kindness.

We all love you.

Alex and the Angels

If you want help the organization you can have here lunch or dinner, but if you are looking for more than average food it is not the right place to eat. This location is more than a Bistro than a restaurant the many positive comments comes more to help the organization than for the food and service I guess. You can go to this restaurant for a Good propose but dont expect a five star food. I think two and half stars are still enough for this bistro.

Dear visitor, dear friend,

The important thing is not the archer, or bow, nor the arrow or the target ... The most important thing is the trajectory!

Thank you very much for your review about the workshop of the Fair Future Foundation.

Of course... We are Not a restaurant. As everyone know i think, The Fair Warung Balé is a Swiss Foundation, an workshop and a clinic where are working 14 young adults... Two doctors, nurses, pharmacist and... me!

You know, all the people who do the cooking here are not professional, but they are like "students" who are learning and/or reinserted into an other life. If something if not goog, why do not we talking? We are a center of learning and not a business! Young people should learn from you orally, it is 100x more effective.

They come from all walks of life, mostly disadvantaged or affected by issues related to their health, their families, housing, economic problems. Our Foundation helps in providing a work in which they learn to cook, accounting, inventory management anticipation of problems and their resolution, foreign languages​​. Now, they are all involved in the Clinic activities. All are very proud of this new challenge for them!

The clinic will open in few days. Today, the Health Department of Bali is coming for visiting... 250 millions roupiahs. This amount is approximately the cost of the Fair Clinic Saking Napi downstairs. This amount comes only from the benefits of the "Fair Warung Balé". Doctors, two nurses, pharmacists are paid by the "Fair Warung Balé".

We wish you a thousand beautiful things in your life, full of happiness where you are and we encourage you to support the efforts of the Fair Future Foundation in its efforts on behalf of young people of Indonesia.

See you very soon and again our apologies for this inconvenience and please, we need your help!

Best regards.

With all our love, we wish you all the best for your stay in the Island of the God.

Just returned from an excellent dinner at Fair Warung. Alex and his "angels" have created an amazing restaurant with a great atmosphere and fantastic food. The King prawns with rice and vegetables which I ordered after reading another TA review were beautiful and a bargain at $4.20!!! My daughter had the red chicken curry which she said was delicious, with two large bintangs our bill came to 140,000 Rp - approx $14 AUD!!!
I can only encourage others to try this restaurant and support the work of the Foundation

I so badly want to give this place a 5/5. The owner Alex is doing an amazing thing and all the people working there are doing an awesome job! It's a very small place, so make reservations. It has a cool vibe to it and you can meet some interesting people there. What Alex has done with the foundation and the restaurant is great and deserves a lot of praise, but I have to remain unbiased and review it strictly as a restaurant. The food was good and very inexpensive. I would eat there again and enjoy it, but I do not think it's the best food in Ubud. I think people should go for the combination of the good food and to support the many other things they are doing. Well done Alex!
