“Great Performances”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Went here for dinner on both the days we stayed in Ubud. It's a great place to hangout in the evenings. The daily live performances are amazing.We enjoyed them a lot. The owner is also very friendly and attentive to all the customers.

The drinks menu is great. The only complain is that their menu did not have much options for vegetarians, especially the main course. Their desserts are to die for. yummm...... :)

“Great Music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Great place to sit and watch some live music in Ubud. We went there a few of times during our stay in Ubud and would thoroughly recommend this place for watching some good quality jazz and blues. Great cocktails, but we never ate there so can't comment on the food. It's a little difficult to find, down a side road, and just as it looks like you've turned down the wrong street, there it is!

“Amazing a must when in ubud”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

This place is a gem. Great atmosphere, very classy with a gorgeous garden at the back. The food and cocktails are really fantastic. But....main attraction is the different live music every night.
I loved it and this should be a must when going to ubud

“Disappointing visit”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

Went to Jazz Cafe for dinner. Ordered two main dishes. Fish was over cooked and portion size quite small. Steak was well cooked but only approx 100g piece of meat, not enough for a grown man!! There were two pieces of asparagus on the plate - not enough veges. Not good value for money. Service was reasonable and staff were pleasant. Live music didn't start until 8.30pm.

“Good music Good vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Good venue, we went on open mike night the band was good.
We went in large group and was quite expensive compared to other places in area , but great for a few beers.
We also had dinner here and the food was nice, we had prawns to start and steak for main, again very nice but nothing special (we would eat here again ).
All up had a good time and the owner came out introduced himself and chatted with us most of the night.
Will be back for a few beers and music
