Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice place, but the pond is still under maintenance, not as nice as photos. There are also many mosquitoes. We made a reservation on the website. Taste of food is not bad though.

Amazing atmosphere emanated throughout the decorated hut provided by the staff. Romantic, ambient lightning and stunning views of the fish in the pond. Food was interesting and unique, with fabulous textures and tastes. The service was outstanding.

We went here based on the reviews and the location is stunning but we were really disappointed with the food and the service. Some of our food was cold, it took ages to even get a drink, despite it not being busy. Some little boys...were playing in the river and hurting the fish and no one told them to stop.More

Quite delicious, however so sorry to say that is not the best. We ordered fishes, and shrimps, the shrimps are a bit hard, and the fishes are too sweet. The staffs are not so that friendly as well.

Beautiful location with padi fields and the most amazing sunset. Just to die to prawns in honey with some secret sauce. We spent 3 hours here and did not want to leave. Will be back again

Though the place does serve some local favourites in what was an alarmingly large menu (yes, if there are 1000 options it is a safe bet that 995 are going to taste poorly) we were extremely disappointed predominantly by the poor service as the waitresses...genuinely looked like they could have been more bothered to serve our table by 20h and by the drinks selection as we were told that they had run out of every time of wine and spirit on the entire menu and only had beer left....was a bit fishy. Otherwise, the place looks to be designed for tour package groups and business team building exercises as there are plenty of staged photo ops in the area, but no views and the food was fairly disappointing On the plus side of life though, while the place was a bit dirty, there was a nice breeze and the duck we ordered was tender at the least. OTherwise, would highly advise individual groups to skip the placeMore

This is my first time to Bale Mang Engking in Ubud, I went to the other branch in Kuta previously. I would say the restaurant is bigger in Ubud and the nice view of rice padi by the side. Really romantic. We sat by the...floating platforms for dinner. Be sure to drop a what's app to them for reservation preferred. I was told that you could already place the order before hand. (Can what's app them to find out). I ordered on the spot instead. Food wise is the traditional balinese food. The ayam bakar is must have and so is the prawns! The taste of food is excellent whether in Ubud or Kuta. Service is good as well.More

A week before arrival I made reservation via WhatsApp. Informed that I will be coming to their restaurant for celebrating my husband birthday. We were greeted with warm welcome and smiles. I requested to have our dinner at the floating hut. the food was super...good and ambience is prefect for some quiet and privacy occasion. The whole experience was really beyond awesome. My husband had a best birthday dinner and we left the restaurant with happy face, happy tummy. Lastly A GENUIEN THANKS TO DEWI & EVI FOR SUPERB SERVICE. See you soon !!More

Wonderful setting between a jungle river and rice paddies. We had a choice between sitting in the western style dining area or over water gazebos, which we chose. The seafood selection is excellent especially if you like prawns 🦐. Their signature 🍯 🌶 prawns are...delicious. So many choices of prawn dishes and choices of many different sambal sauces to go with it. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves including the instagramable spots for our teenager. Hope they open the section by the river with its small waterfall soon. We will be back.More

We were staying nearby, in the jungle, and were pleasantly surprised with our discovery of this beautiful, fun restaurant. It became our regular spot during our stay.

Bale Udang was a lovely and beautiful restaurant for our private dinner. The floating gazebo was a great touch. The food came out quickly and tasted great - mostly seafood but there were also non-seafood options. The price was reasonable for what we ordered and...the staff were very kind and hospitable. They also provided a cake which was quite sweet. I would recommend.More
