Description: Dear friends, dear visitors, dear travelers, The Fair Warung Bale is a restaurant and a social workshop ("Warung" means small place where to eat), which is an integration program of the Fair Future Foundation and the Bali Sari Foundation (State Approved NGO in Indonesia speaks by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, and the Swiss Confederation, under his control). We care and treat tens of thousands poor, sick, disable, disadvantaged human beings per year, without consideration of race, religion, origin, age, color. The Foundation provide them FREE Health & Medical Care solutions, trough our Medical Centers, Home Care Programs & Community Health Medical Care Events all around, especially in West Nusa Tenggara area, in Indonesia. This engagement is financed by the Fair Warung Bale, which trains young people aged between 15 and 20 years old and by individual and institutional donations, of which 98% flows are directly used in favor of the people in need. The Fair Warung Bale, is the cornerstone of a new economic model, who tries to give back profits and benefits to the poorest and people who are really in need and definitely not the richest people. The Fair Warung Bale is the only Fair business, the only one “restaurant” in the Whole World, which’s supports and founds a Comprehensive & Massive Public Healthcare Program, including Medical Centers & a Large Medical team, consisting of more than Fifteen Health Professionals, for more than 25’000 people in need… We care children, babys, adolescents, adults, elderly people, families and local communities. Every dish you eat, every drink, pays a free medical consultation to a person in need or it provided medical assistance over the medium term. To date, our last clinical example receives over 25,000 patients per year, 80% of them, treatment is free! They are with you. The new hospital foundation this year (2014) will be created again, the project already started in the District of Klungkung, on three islands. Both foundations don't pay government tax. However, if you wish, you can help what we do by making a small donation in the small "Donation Box", located on the counter. You will receive a certificate of donation that you can use for all purposes. Thank you very much for your kindness, your interest, your visit and all the love that your small business, you bring us. And do not forget to stick you, your own small stone wall of the Foundation! Already more than 12'000 pebbles lining our walls! The Foundation Board and all the Fair Warung Bale Angels.

“It is what it is...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Fair Warung Bale is just that a delightful open kitchen Warung Bale with welcoming staff, just a few tables some shared but ultimately supporting a wonderful cause in the form of a free medical clinic for locals.

I am saddened to read some negative reviews about the Warung as these reviewers have obviously not done their homework on the concept. Please do not go there just because of the Number 1 ranking on TripAdvisor then claim the ranking is fake as it was not the 5 star chic restaurant you had envisaged.

Yes the steps are steep for an older person to climb however I would gladly traverse them a dozen times if it meant supporting Alex and his Clinic.

The food is cheap, fresh and delicious. We shared a table with a young couple from Canada on their 1st visit and 1st day in Bali so it was fun to be able to share some of our 30 years of travel experiences in Bali.

Relax, go with an open mind and heart, support a good cause and you will not be disappointed.

Dear friends

...Actions speak louder than words...

Thank you very much for supporting our foundation, our action for the others.
For all the others, ask to visit our Free Medical Clinic, the Fair "Ubud Bali Sari Clinic". It will be our pleasure to show it. Still, we apply the principle of self-sufficiency «Help while working»

Everything is paid by the benefits of our workshop, the Fair Warung Balé, the Bali Sari Foundation (Indonesian NGO) and the Fair Future Foundation (Swiss NGO).

Come and eat something fair, fresh, good, or drink a juice with us to the «Fair Warung Balé» or to the «Up To You Bar» downstairs. 100% of its profits are used by foundation to serve its actions.

Like a small white stone on the wall...

With love

Dear friend, how are you? Thanks for coming again to the Bali Sari Foundation!

Ok... In a few words: Why your participation in Foundation programs, and your visit to "Fair Warung Bale" is important, essential and so appreciated!

The Foundation in few words:
---------------------
115m2 of medical clinic, two consultations beds, 3 doctors and 5 to 8 nurses - All are local people;
Medical and surgical care, emergency services (Free Health care for people in needs);
Cardiological examinations, blood tests, disease screening, disease prevention, etc...
One Social Pharmacy (Free drugs for people in needs);
One clinic mobile which carries the poorest and sickest patients from remote villages to the clinic;
Efficient medical equipment, last generation ECG machine (LCD Screen). Resuscitation equipment etc ... (We still need equipment ...)
The costs for the construction and renovation of the clinic amounted to more than 45,000 U.S. dollars
At 70%, the clinic was funded by the profits of the Fair Warung Balé;
For the balance, thanks to your donations and Fair Future Foundation...

For the moment, we suppose to have more than 25’000 patients per year, and increase;

The monthly budget is around 5'000 U$D per month. It's include : Medical staff salary, Drugs, medical supplies, electricity, water, maintenance of the clinic etc...

Everything is paid by the benefits of our workshop, the Fair Warung Balé, the Bali Sari Foundation (Indonesian NGO) and the Fair Future Foundation (Swiss NGO).

The new clinic is located 500 meters from the "Fair Warung Balé", in Jalan Sugriwa. If you want to visit it, just ask the staff. For sure, it will be our pleasure to show it. Go there and talk with the Physicians and the nurses.

All the young people who's work in the Fair Warung Balé are not professional! They are here to learn about everything! I'm Alex, the founder, i'm nurse and i'm 100% volunteer!

Thanks for your time, thank you for your good sense and your kindness!

With love

Alex (from Switzerland)

“Good, not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

I was eager to visit this restaurant based on the reviews on TA. The food was good and the staff very competent given how young they are. Not the best meal we enjoyed in Ubud but reasonable prices
