Don't know why this place has Shisha in its name because they CANNOT make shisha! Or if they can the flavour is cheap & horrible. Can't taste the flavour instead you can taste tobacco and shisha is harsh. If you're a shisha lover avoid this...More

Nice place to chill, smoke a shisha and listen to live music. They have an eclectic menu with some Dutch snacks. Only had the Indonesian inspired butterballs. They where a bit plain

Stopped in for lunch to get off of the busy Monkey Forest Road. Thought it would be good for people watching. Creepy people maybe. Two ladies with kids came up begging right at our table! Ordered three different tapas to try a variety. The first...More

The food is a bit overpriced but it was ok. We ordered 4 tapas (set), a tuna salad and a side of fries. It was good but the service could have been better, we had to ask few times to have some ketchup. It also...More

It’s hard to believe that XL Lounge and Bar is only a year old. Started by a couple of tall, strapping Dutch guys (hence the name) it has a Middle Eastern style, complete with shisha pipes and silky draped ceilings, and a friendly ambiance. Owner Herman often agrees to host a fundraiser for a good local cause, and generously changed XL’s back garden area to accommodate the crazy Friday Karaoke crowd, when their other spot closed down. Herman is one of the most welcoming people in Ubud, and of course this attitude rubs off on his staff, so they have a lot of repeat guests. I’m guessing they’ll also have many more birthdays. Congrats XL! Next to the Ubud Library, behind the football field on Jl Monkey Forest. (copied from Bali Advertiser - Ubud News March 9,2011)Live Music playing in the evening four times a week & open until 3AM.
