First of all I have very high expectation on this diner
a balinese cozy restaurant in the middle of classic view of rice field, it will be perfect for our postponed honeymoon.

when we came, we a bit amused with the ambience, but it turns to a bit dissapointing when the dishes are come.

We order 2 balinese rice w crispy duck, a plate of grilled seafood, 2 pina colada, and a plate of fruit salad

the duck are so skinny, i wonder if they are got malnutrition or anorexia ?????
the dishes mostly in average taste, which it supposed to be rich in flavour.
Especially on the "sambal matah", it supposed to be hot and fragrant, but its definately not.
the pina colada supposed to be sweet and creamy,but somehow it have some bitter aftertaste.

well i hope the management will fix these things, or their reputation will be lapsed by other competitors

The place looks fantastic, cosy and the staffs are efficient. Food is good. You may still try the Balinese Smoked Duck even if you didnt make any reservation. Ask if they have any extras. Usually the kitchen has. The spies is good but overall it was just a so-so.
Their original crispy duck is better , even in comparison of price.
The serving is just nice for a big eater.

However..... the surrounding of the restaurant is stink and I saw rats running around.
Makes me think twice of coming back.

My friend and I went to Bebek Bengil as we were looking for some local food to enjoy for dinner. And since the restaurant is very close to the spa that we went, we decided to give it a try.

The restaurant was actually much bigger as you went inside. It got a very nice location with an overview of a beautiful rice terrace. The waitress was very kind by saving a nice spot for us in the restaurant without us requesting her to do so.

I did enjoy the crispy duck, which was the restaurant's specialty though my girlfriend commented that it was a little over fried. The rest of the dishes was average.

Tried both the smoked duck as well as the crispy duck. In fact they must have been ducklings or on a diet or farm the carp family as there was barely any meat on the bones..flavours are fine but nothing special. I would pick other places in Ubud over this for dinner.
