We ate here on a Monday night. We ate around 5pm so it was early enough that we didn't have any problems getting a table. They have a huge dining area with isolated tables under their own roofs for a private dining experience.

We got one of them and it was very nice, over the water with lots of fish. There's an area for your feet so you don't have sit on the floor. I was especially grateful for that as I'm not very flexible and can't sit on the floor for long periods of time.

They have a variety of dishes but we opted for the Bale Nem package meal for 6 people. It was enough for us (4 males and 2 females).

Like the menu says, it's got a whole lot of different types of dishes and all of them were very delicious.

Two types of grilled/fried fish
Somewhat hard from the fryer but the meat of it was flavourful and full of spices.

Chicken was good depending on which part you eat. Bone in pieces were more tender but they were full of spices as well.

Two plates of vegetables to go with the steamed rice. Simple but refreshing.

Coconut curry with shrimps. Not spicy but it goes really well with the rice, the sauce is lovely.

Sweet and sour prawn skewers were the best. Grilled shrimps were cooked perfectly over and the sauce was very nice.

They also provided a plate of fruits as dessert.

We really enjoyed dining here and sufficient to say that it was one of the best meals we had on our Bali trip.

You must try to eat in this restaurant, recomended place when yu're traveling in ubud area the taste of food its good and the service is very helpfully. And when your food doesn't come more than 30 minutes you will get free voucher IDR 50k, its a good way to guaranted your costumer satisfaction.
But the toilet and public area need more attention its not clear enough.

We nearly came here 2 nights ago but we are so glad we waited u til our last night in Ubud. Out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the main strip this hidden gem couldn't have been more perfect. We sat in one of the gorgeous bamboo huts over the water where you are greeted by your server and given fish good to feed the fish whilst you wait for your food. This is great fun! Try dipping your toes! Our waitress Dwik was perfect and knew exactly when to visit us very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was great especially if you love seafood. Very affordable and delicious and what you can't manage to eat the fish will help you with that too if you let them! The atmosphere with the pond and rice fields was great. Not too busy but I would still book yo ensure you don't miss out on the bamboo huts. The perfect last night to our stay in Ubud. We would highly recommend.

Very nice place and ambiance. Really enjoyed feeding the fishes from our bale and the rice field view. The prawn is so good and so are their special juices. The staff is also very accommodating and friendly. Highly recommend to have lunch here!
