I'd go for the music again but the food which for all of us (7 people) was good but smaller than a meal for a five years old kid. After we were finish and still hungry we asked for more but the answer was: "no sorry: this is the size of our meals" they simply don't care.

The food in this cafe is good but way to expensive. So if you are hungry and have lots of cash than i recommend to order two or three meals each!

A stylish setting, catering for all manner of patrons.
Do go for the music and the good times.
Do not go for the food.
The dishes are dressed up to be something they are not and are expensive for what you get.
Good wine list but again an expensive commodity.
In my view the 2 for 1 cocktails offered in the happy hour are watered down.

Great view for live music and drinking.
Watch the website or local publications for attractions and regular music nights.
Can highly recommend the Cuban night, great dancers are treat to watch.

Most popular dish - French Fries. Say no more.

Visited the Jazz Cafe on Tuesday and ate here. Food was average but very expensive. Cocktails were not horrible and expensive.
However would highly recommend visiting this cafe purely for the fantastic live music. We were fortunate to see the Magic Mushrooms, the female singer was amazing! She created a great atmosphere and had everyone up dancing. Would not recommend the food or cocktails but the music is fantastic!

Jazz cafe is very centrally located in Ubud. It is one of the few places in Ubud, Bali to soak in live jazz music and a great ambience. The seating arrangement in Jazz Cafe is very indonesian, with low seating arrangement. They have a certain section which has outdoor low seating amidst lush tress.
Food - The food served over here is global and delicious, however the portions are small.
Price - It is bit on the expensive side, though not exorbitant.
Can be an ideal place for young couples, luxury travellers. Definitely not for kids
