There’s some food you dream about later
The Pond, was a haven for food and good vibes! I never expect for beef/steak to blow my mind unless it’s at a steak house. I went into this mini paradise with low expectations. We had just left the monkey forest driving out of town when this caught our attention. We were looking for food but it was the pool side bar that grabbed us from the street. Luckily for us, the vibes and food were equally awesome. I asked for the Piña Colada to be “more strong” and they hooked it up at no extra charge. It was delicious and the pineapple was incredibly fresh. I’m not usually a fan of blended drinks but tropical environments sway me. The chicken drumsticks were more like chicken lollipops and the sauce it came with was simple but paired with the chicken incredibly well. The star, however, was the grilled tenderloin beef, I almost passed out! It was heaven and a perfect medwell for me. It was accompanied by marvelously made veggies that added pops of color to the plate. My boyfriend had to pull me out of there, I was bursting at my seams and still wanted another beef tenderloin. This is a definite must if you’re in the Ubud area!

Quality food, nice setting
Visited The Pond twice for BBQ buffet and Balinese Buffet dinner. The BBQ dinner was excellent with tasty beef, pork chicken, rice, salads, fresh salads and fruit, a variety of sweets and a nice dancing group performing on the night. The Balinese dinner was nice for the experience as I do not like much spicy food but the fish, sausages, chicken and minced chicken on banana leaf that I tried were very tasty. Fresh salads, fruit and sweets completed the dinner and two girls performed a Balinese dance. Cost AUD 26.50 per person plus drinks.

Wonderful Seafood Buffet
We didn't have a reservation but arrived as soon as the restaurant opened and managed to get a table. We were welcomed, sat at our table and advised of what the different food stations were before another member of staff took our drinks order. The service was first class as was the food. Nothing could be faulted. There was also live music and dancers. This could be one of our new favourite places to dine in Bali.
