Gastronomes Guide to Ubud

29 Jun 2007  Noshing in paradise.
4.0 of 5 stars based on 7 votes

A list of some of the many great dining spots in Ubud. (In no particular order...)

  • Category: Best of
  • Traveler type: Repeat visitors
  • Appeals to: Business travellers , Couples/romantics, Honeymooners, Singles, Seniors, Tourists
  • 1. Mozaic

    Fine French dining at what is possibly the best restaurant in Bali. Dinner reservations are an absolute must. Note this is a pricey stop!

  • 2. Ibu Oka

    In direct contrast to the fine dining of Mozaic, with have the decidely low brow Ibu Oka (you actually sit on the patio floor outside to eat!). That said, it is a must -- the place is legendary for serving the best Babi Guling (roast balinese style sucking pig) in Bali. Great place, good fun, cheap and uniquely Bali. (Take a pass when it's raining!) Very inexpensive.

  • 3. Terazo

    Located right in the heart of Ubud near the palace (and near Ibu Oka), this affordable restaurant serves consistently good continental and asian cuisine. It's hard to go wrong here for lunch or dinner and is highly recommended as a good value for money -- and good food.

  • 4. Casa Luna

    A cafe located on the main street across from the museums, Casa Luna has a decidely eclectic menu. Some of it is quite good and its a good stop for lunch. That said, the real joy here is the dessert menu -- try the Mango Lime tarts (ohmygod!). If nothing else, drop by while walking the streets and hit the desserts and the coffee. If you decide to sit -- go all the way back to the balcony overlooking the river.

  • 5. Naughty Nuri's

    OK, so this may not be fine dining, but it is fine fun! Run by an expat who married a Balinese woman (Nuri) and settled here to be a bar / restaurant owner, Nuri's clearly has a distinct coterie of fans. Go Thursday nights when they fire up the barbecue grill, cook up ribs and all the local expats drop by for their fab martinis.

  • 6. Cascades

    This is the restaurant at the Viceroy hotel. While I don't normally advocate hotel restaurants, Cascades has a wonderful romantic setting overlooking the river valley and a reputation for excellent fine dining. Pricey.

  • 7. Tutmak

    I can't say enough about this place -- while the setting is not stellar, the food is definitely noteworthy. The menu is fusion style punctuated with Indonesian. Daily boards emphasize healthy fresh foods. They roast their own coffee. They have great desserts. You can sit on the floor (but only if you want). It's fun, it's fab, it's cheap, it's great food.

  • 8. Bebek Bengil (aka The Dirty Duck Diner)

    One of the better known Ubud establishments -- famous for its Balinese style duck dishes and arak cocktails. The restaurant has been here for years and grown from being just a small warung into a large sprawling complex. The good news is, despite the growth, the food remains great and is recommended.

  • 9. Batan Waru

    One of the best Balinese dining choices in Ubud. Very popular -- they've now opened a second location in Kuta. Nice in the evenings with candle light.

  • 10. Lamak

    Located on Monkey Forest road, Lamak is a fusion restaurant of some note. They have an interesting and innovative menu and a decent wine cellar. Lunch is a good deal here, dinner can be crowded.
