We had lunch here after our beautiful 2.5 hour karsa spa experience but left feeling dissapointed by the attitude of the staff at Karsa Cafe.. they weren't very nice to us and made us feel like they didn't want us there, especially when we asked for one of the tables on top of the fish pond. My advice is after... More

After the walk up through the ridge it's always a delight coming here. It's like an oasis - ice cold Bintang waiting to settle you down. Good prices for food & drinks, & nice tasting food as well. However it's the location & views which make this place special. For those who don't want to walk back to Ubud centre... More

Karsa Cafe has one of the best views in Ubud! The scenery is stunning and so peaceful. The drinks are great and the food delicious.

Stopped here after the ridge walk same as everyone else who read online that this was the finishing point. The view from upstairs is stunning. Reasonably priced food, I had a huge salad bowl which was generous with the good stuff like pumpkin and avocado. Service was good. Lots of cafes along this strip if you want to support other...

Stopped here as my friend and I were finishing our trek. They have lovely areas to sit and rest amongst lily pads and fishes, whilst overlooking the rice paddies. Great spot.

Went here for breakfast one morning as we were staying at The Lokha just down the road. What a mistake that was. Out of the three meals we ordered, two were pretty much inedible and the other wasn't finished as it tasted terrible. We ended up going back to our hotel for something to eat. It is a very nice...

Stopped as going to the Spa. Its a shame the café doesn't match the quality of the spa - nice food - but same same as lots of other places. Visiting the spa again for this stay, but will only stop for a cool drink (the lime and mint is great) - not the food. Much better to be had... More

I stopped here for about 30 minutes, had a drink and a rest while I soaked up the views from this lovely little Cafe and Spa. You can see across rice terraces to a chain of four mountians off in the distance. One can't forget to mention the beautiful ponds full of water lilies. I thought I was back in... More

Karsa Cafe/Kafe is a simple and lovely open air cafe ideally situated overlooking the rice fields. A perfect place to have a drink or food after the glorious walk along the famous Campuhan Ridge heading north from Ubud. This is one of the most beautiful walks in all of Bali. We sell simple but delicious Indonesian favourites and healthy, fresh juices. We have recently opened Karsa Spa nearby with Reiki, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue therapeutic and healing bodywork and organic spa treatments. Leave the hustle and bustle of Ubud for a day! Come and spend healthy time walking the ridge then relaxing at our cafe and spa. Our sunsets are amazing too!
