Awesome Experience - A True Artist at Work!
La Pacha Mama is in an art community named Penestanan next to Ubud and of all the restaurants (there are a ton) this was in every way a work of art. The space, the staff, the menu, the presentation and most importantly - the food were all designed brilliantly. The guacamole was by far the best we've had.Huge portions, homemade chips, even the refried beans were special. My wife liked the fish tacos which had delicious generous portions of fried fish. I loved the horchata drink so much, I had to have a second. Their non-alcoholic horchata has a wonderful blend of spices, the cinnamon stands out.My wife liked their mojitos. When you first sit down they will put a little black box on the table for you with a small white thing next to it. They will use a tweezers to put the white thing in a small round hole and it will mushroom up magically. What is it? A marshmallow? Do you eat it? I'll keep it a surprise. The tall ceiling, The psychedelic horse. Candles everywhere. Flowers on the path leading you in. The great music from talented bands. Sometimes a wild flaming cooking exhibition by the owner/chef. This is more than a restaurant - it's an experience!

Brilliant experience with high-end food
Went to la pacha for dinner and despite them being full they managed to find space for us at a shared table which was perfect. Try and go either a Thursday or Saturday when they have amazing live bands. The food and cocktails were expensive but absolutely delicious and more than worth the money. The staff really couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. This is a brilliant restaurant that you shouldn't miss if you are visiting Ubud. Can't say enough good things, will definitely be back

Much more than expected!
To put it simply, amazing food, service and entertainment. Between The cauliflower buffalo wings, the drunken mushrooms, the tuna tartare and the veggie tacos, my daughter and I enjoyed every bite. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a live band playing cover tunes. We had no idea that they had live entertainment. The music created a light and fun feel. When it was time to go, our waiter and one of the restaurant owners said a cab couldn’t be found so they had the bartender and the assistant chef bring us back to our hotel on their mopeds. Let me repeat — they brought us home when a taxi couldn’t be found. Wow! I was shocked by the care they provided both during and after dinner. The food could have been of lower quality and I would still be impressed by the service and the entertaiment.... and if the service was mediocre and there was no entertainment, I would still be impressed by the food. Go! You won’t be disappointed.
