One of the best locations in Ubud town centre this cafe serves Ubud’s Best Coffee 2023.  There are so many variations for coffee now but the friendly barista’s at Anomali seem to get every order just right! Milk available includes oat, dairy and coconut. Second to the coffee is the croissants – plain, chocolate, almond and raisin are fresh every morning. We rate the croissants Ubuds Top Croissants 2023. 

A stop at Anomali is recommended after visiting Ubud Market. Either early morning after visiting the fresh fruit, vegetables and flower market or anytime during the day when you need a coffee hit and bite to eat.  A good range of seating options, outside yet set back from the street, inside ground floor airconditioned or upstairs open air. Not to be forgotten the food is good too ! For breakfast smoothie bowl, hot oats, burrata eggs, hot oats, chia pudding and pancakes are recommended.

Donna is impressive and brings a new style of bar, dining and dancing to Ubud. The venue located amongst the live music strip of Monkey Forest Road offers something different for this area.  Ground floor is tapas dining and lounging whilst first floor is a roof top bar leading to the dark disco dance floor.  This layout means you can start with dinner, move to the bar to socialize more and then bust out some dance moves when you feel the need. Tapas is delicious, the cocktails (with mocktail versions) are creative without being too much.

Cafe Pomegranate is located in the middle of the rice field within walking distance from Ubud town.  There is no car access – only motorbike and by foot. The walk is highly recommended, it is interesting and will provide many photo opportunities.  The building is unique due to the raised altitude compared to the central Ubud and disconnected from the busy main streets. It provides a 180° open view. In the morning, you can usually see Mount Agung. One of the prime times is to see the sunset looking over the view of the rice field towards the Camphuan river and ridge.

Tucked away from Raya Ubud close to Campuhan Bridge is where you will find Cabana. A little tricky the first time as the entrance is at the bend in the road and there is not a lot of parking. Once arrived you need to go up 3 or 4 flights of stairs. Cabana is open air lounge and bar style setting with a view of a beautiful temple. The food has great variety suitable for sharing (or not if you are hungry). Paella is delicious, the beetroot salad a good choice to stay healthy. Definitely try the pineapple martini and mango souffle for dessert.

The Elephant (Vegetarian)
With such a large menu of delicious food, juices, mocktails and cocktails what to order is always a difficult choice. Mango Dragonfruit or Green Iguana smoothie is a must try. Gyoza, gnocchi, Pad Thai is super fresh and highly recommended. But the winning dish is “ I can’t believe it’s not spaghetti” which is spaghetti bolognese made with tofu. It is sooo good. The Elephant is on the outskirts of town and overlooks the Campuhan Ridge so it is a good idea to visit for lunch or breakfast.

Merlins Magic
Ubud is renowned for its out of the box dining venues so it makes perfect sense that Merlins Magic is located in the town. Upon arrival you know Merlins is different ! The lobby is a magic shop selling trinkets, guide books, pills and potions. Not sure what you need to become a magical being, then turn the page of the magicians guide to find your recommended potion. Continue upstairs to the impressive dining room resembling the wizards private chamber with a giant glass dome over the large wood carved table that seems to be a merge of Balinese and Medieval styles.     

The food impresses right from the start with the golden turmeric focaccia served as welcome bread with 3 butters, sambal matah, herb and black garlic. The cassava rendang molen was a Balinese twist on a empanada . The tortellini was melt in your mouth fresh and guilt free since it was combined with a light moringa anagata cheese sauce. Our ‘ must try ‘ recommendation is the Canang dessert. Carefully sculpted to resemble a Balinese offering known as canang the flavours were a taste explosion. Accompanied by Malbec gelato (yes Malbec the wine !) we had never seen or tasted a dessert quite like this !

Recently reopened at the location previously known as Bridges fine dining restaurant. Of course the stunning view over Campuhan River and Ubud’s original bridge is still the same. Other than the name change there has also been some other subtle changes.The restaurant and bar décor now have a more modern feel with the bar being renamed to The Liar.  The Menu is a similar concept using exceptional quality produce and a choice of fish, chicken, pork, steak and more. Starters are creative and a good opportunity to try a new taste. Balinese staff, although many are new still offer the same attentive service. For Bridges lovers we recommend you try Arcadia and for others Arcadia is an ideal choice for a treat or special celebration. 

Recommended – Cocktails, Wine (great wine list), Starters, and after dinner drink at The Lair Bar.

If you are a foodie then Moziac definitely needs to be on your list. Mozaic was Ubud’s first fine dining restaurant and has survived 20 years. The restaurant is indoor with AC and a lovely ambiance. The staff are young, personable and do their best to assist with a complicated menu There is 6 or 8 courses that can include wine pairing with both vegetarian and meat choices. Moziac always pushes the creativity to the next level. We wouldn’t do the menu justice to try and describe, you just need to try!.
