From the street level all the way to the river, bridges has what it takes to properly welcome guests to Ubud. It is a place "where worlds meet" serving delicacies from Asia and the West. It is also home to DIVINE, Ubud's most extensive wine list with over 350 labels and more than 10 grape varieties. Located below the Riverside dining room is DIVINE wine and cocktail bar, a great place to have a great time with an amazing wine list and great cocktails. It comes with its own kitchen providing gastro delights. To enjoy life's little pleasures, bridges also offers a bistro terrace, coffee and tea parlour and a cocktail lounge.

“Fantastic Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

We went to Bridges after it was recommended by friends and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is in a beautiful spot surrounded by lush greenery with the sound of waterfalls down the hill, giving a lovely tranquil feel. The food was superb, of fine dining quality, and the early evening wine tasting was also a highlight. The service was outstanding - it was our wedding anniversary and we mentioned this in passing to the waitress at the start of our meal. Much to our surprise they came out at the end of our meal with a plate of petits fours with 'Happy Anniversary' written, which was a fantastic surprise.
Overall, it was one of the best evenings out we've had, and the best meal we had in Bali by some distance. Highly recommended!

“FOOD POISONING STAY AWAY”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

This place is beautiful and the service was excellent. BUT the next day we developed full food poisoning symptoms. Their kitchen hygiene is obviously lacking. Our severe gastroenteritis required antibiotic treatment. There are plenty of pretty places to see in Ubud. You don't need to pay to be poisoned. The restaurant sent me asking for feedback on our meal. I replied honestly and asked for a full refund. That request has so far been ignored so I will be disputing the charge with my credit card company.

“Romantic location with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

There are so many excellent restaurants in Ubud , that you have to be right on top of your game to shine.
Bridges is very good, but just misses that top rating.
If this was the only place you ate in town you'd give it a 10. The menu is extensive, the wine list is large (but probably not as varied as some) and the service is attentive.
However, the food seems a little overproduced. The combinations seems to be a little too complex and the sauces are too 'busy'. The fare would impress more with a lighter touch.
The staff could be a little more observant to be the best on offer.
Don't get me wrong, you will have a great meal and you will be happy. There's just better food, presentation and service elsewhere.
All said, I'd return happily. It's value.
