Fantastic dirty duck
Still one of the must eats when visiting ubud. The duck was super crispy and tasted great with the sliced chilies provided.

Just an Ordinary Duck
I'm a hug fan of duck meat..when i visit,I'm planing to visit this restaurant..as you can read from other comment,this restaurant look very small for outside,but you find good appearance when you enter restaurant,but not with the food..I ordered Bebek Bengil as their signature dish,with mashed potato and salad as a side dish,unfortunately I don't like taste of the mashed potato,I'm even ask salt to the waitress..and the duck too tough also,almost half part of the hard to chew and also slice of orange in plate very sour and hard to bite..pity me 😥..below my expectation because this restaurant very famous in ubud and have a lot guests especially tourists that visit Ubud..please increase your meals and always check your guests satisfaction for future being.

Come for the view...
I've been coming to Bebek Bengil for years now. The location is amazing. If you want the romance of dining in a tropical Balinese setting, this is the place. There are pavilions that overlook the padi fields, and the lush greenery and water features create an oasis from the humidity and heat of Bali. They are famous for their fried duck, and it's become a mandatory stop for many tour buses, so expect crowds. But their staff are professional to a fault (read: efficient but lacking genuine warmth) and restaurant is a well-oiled machine so the food and service is prompt. Perhaps because it's now catering to the masses, I have found the food to be lacking in flavour. The duck is fried to a crisp, so there would be dry parts; don't expect Chinese roast duck juiciness. But what makes Bebek Goreng (fried duck) special are the accompanying sauces, and this is where it disappoints. Some are fiery hot, but without the complexity of flavour while others are just bland. I also cannot comprehend the new pricing that they have adopted: sweet tea is more expensive than plain sugarless tea. They used to just put the sugar syrup on the side and let you decide. All in all, this recent visit was a disappointment for this repeat customer, but if you're in Ubud for a day trip, it's not a bad choice for lunch-time photo opportunities.
