Description: Wholesome food at it's finest, The River Café is all about helping you maintain a complete balance of wellness whilst at Maya Ubud.We are aware of your needs and have created some unique dishes for those who prefer vegetarian and gluten-free or simply good. Incorporating an all over healthy attitude to food, we use only whole grains, organic herbs, in house cured and pickled foods that are low in salt, unpasteurised ingredients, refined sugar and fat and we never deep fry.

The river cafe has a fantastic view overlooking the river (hence the name) and the iinfinity pool. It is situated at the bottom end of the Maya grounds but just the walk there is like a tour in itself. You can arrive via a lift from the above levels or a walk around from the side, but it is quite a walk I recommend the lift option, the food is ghood quality and full of flavour and the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpfull. The restauarant closes early as we found we could not get dinner there at the time we tried I am not sure about the weekend but this day it closed at 7.00pm. The Spa and massage rooms are in this area as well and they are not only beatifull rooms but offer some great relaxation methods.

Great place to have a coffee especially if you are using the pool down by the river. Great service and our lattes were great and came with a little oatmeal cookie.

The River Cafe sits overlooking the pool and the jungle beyond. It has a lovely ambiance but sadly the food is average and very expensive – especially when compared to the amazing food that you can find at various restaurants in Ubud town at a fraction of the price.

The setting is amazing. But the food is tasteless. The presentation is wonderful. Lovely in fact. We paid basically for the view and setting ... welcome to bali!

Situated overlooking the river and the infinity pool. Great place for a snack and a drink after a swim or just to take in the view.
