Lunch with a view
Cascades it set in the tranquil and beautiful grounds of the Viceroy Hotel Ubud. The restaurant is perched on the edge of the valley overlooking the palms and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. This is fine dining Bay style and whilst it is not cheap, it is worth the experience. We started with house made bread that was tasty. Gluten free was supplied for our coeliac companion. The chef came out and spoke to our friend to explain what was on the menu that she could eat. We thought this was exceptional service. We though the miniature gado gado amuse bouche was fun. For main course my companions both had Barra and loved it. I had the Balinese duck that came with various accompaniments including sambals and a pot of bok choy. It was a great and flavoursome dish. For dessert we shared the the orange and chocolate soufflé. Yum. The wine list had some good choices. We enjoyed the Argentinian Chardonnay. The wait staff, including the chatty Gung Nif, were friendly and helpful. The 21% service charge added to the bill is just feels like a rip off after such a pleasant experience. It would be better if they just added this into the prices. Overall though, we would recommend Cascades, particularly for lunch when you can see the view.

This was probably the nicest restaurant I’ve eaten at. The service was superb, the food wonderful, the atmosphere was relaxing, and the view was amazing. It was a little pricey but you get a lot of perks with that! We had a great experience!

Charming & Romantic but not fabulous
A review should be objective rather than subjective so let’s be objective ! Delightful location and surroundings (Viceroy Hotel ) the restaurant is a nest for a romantic dinner yet the food did not quite meet our high expectations as far as our expectations became versus the location and surroundings . We order the chef gastronomic menu and the combination of dishes was somehow “hectic” and flavours of one did not accompany the next dish . The staff were friendly and welcoming yet overall the pricing was in line with the hotel standard yet not quite in line with quality served . The Caviar dish was so microscopic that no taste bud could detect it . Overall ! Place to try day time not evening as view is nil and try “A la carte” ensuring that they have what they advertise on their website which was not the case for us .
