“Sitting in Bali hut next to rice paddies was very relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Very touristy spot, but sitting in Bali hut with Bintang beer at the end of big motorcycle ride, next to beautiful rice paddies, that was heaven!! Just be careful with a farmer looking guy carrying bamboo basket who came to take photo with us from nowhere. After some shots with him, he tried to sell us banana hat, we gave him some money to leave us alone.

“Very nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We stopped on way back to villa for a early dinner. Food was fresh, drinks were very nice, great view and friendly staff. The menu is suited to lots of tastes, tapas western and Indonesian. they also do breakfast as well. Quiet out of ubud worth the drive up hill. Very nice all round

“Fantastic view, not a great menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

We happended to stumble across this place on our way to the elephant safari park @ Taro. It was the view of the rice fields that drew us in. We were really looking for a nice coffee latte and a cappuccino but instead got an instant Nescafe. However, we were able to sit and enjoy the view from a private cabana and take some photos.

“Picture postcard place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

Our driver recommended that we stop for tea somewhere up in the rice terraces -and that was a really good suggestion - the terraces are so picturesque, they looked exactly like in the brochures. It was educational to see how the terraces get their water supply from somewhere up above, and how it's channelled along bamboo pipes into one terrace, from which it flows down to the next and the next.

The little restaurant we visited, Rice Terrace Cafe, was very interesting - it was on many different levels. Most levels had a little gazebo like place, enough for one set of guests, with a low table and cushions to sit on on the floor, while you have your food or drink and just relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

As we had my elderly mother in law with us, we opted not to traipse down and up, but to have tea on the topmost level, with 'normal' tables and chairs, but the view from there was lovely anyway.

The younger ones among us did walk down to the lowest level, where you're just above the terraces, and realized that we could actually walk along the little paths between the rice fields - some little kids came running along to ask us if we wanted them to guide us.

When we declined, two of them showed their entrepreneurial skills by trying to sell my husband 2 packs of postcards. They were very persuasive, trying to tell him that he needed to buy so they would have money to go to school - when he said he'd take one pack , they informed him that then only one of them would be able to go to school!
He stuck to his guns and said he only wanted one, and when they saw he was adamant, they gave him two packs for the price of one! They were not pests bothering tourists, but two very cute kids who were trying their luck! They 'belong' to the restaurant, as they popped back into the kitchen part after doing their stuff.

We had black rice porridge, pancakes and fried bananas, with ginger tea, chrysanthemum tea and balinese coffee. The food was not bad, and the teas refreshing. The coffee was okay, but I found it a bit light for my taste.

They also serve meals, but I'm not sure how those are.

The water in the taps is icy cold and refreshing - perfect to wash your face and cool off after climbing up and down the steep stairs.

The main attraction about the place is the situation, among the terraces, so it's a great place to sit and relax before heading back into the traffic of Ubud!
