Comfortable place with excellent service
We stopped in here for a drink while waiting for the girls to finish shopping. Had some Mojitos french style and they were well priced (two for 1) and perfectly made, we were impressed. Also has some guacamole and chips and it was tasty and well priced. We will be back for the full meal next time we are in the area.

A local taste of Ubud - the banana chicken was wonderful.
We sought this restaurant out because some friends of our who went to Bali (and Ubud)20 years ago had gone here and said the banana chicken was wonderful! (They still had the receipt from their meal!) We had tried to call in advance, but no luck getting through, but my husband was persistent and he found the place and ultimately reached Satri by phone. She came to the entrance to her restaurant and walked us back to the dining area. The sign outside is easy to find and quite large and colorful, but if you did not know where you were going once you step inside to a walkway, you might question where you are. But Satri came out and walked us back down a corridor. (There were several dogs along the way that barked at us, so we were glad she led the way.) For the banana chicken dish they make, you must leave a deposit and come back the next day, so we did. The meal was fabulous! It was such a spread that included the chicken, salad, rice, vegetables and some crispy chips. We were stuffed by the end of the meal. Satri was a delight. Beautiful smile, wonderful person. She served us and checked on us regularly to make sure we were absolutely satisfied. She does not sell wine, but allowed us to bring in a bottle and glasses. You are literally eating in her home! Years (!!) ago, it was just a storefront where you came to get your food and eat it on the street or take it home to eat. Later, she converted a large portion of her home into the dining area (see photos). After dinner and we were winding down, she came and sat with us and allowed us to take photos of her place and her. We highly recommend you get to know her. (Her English is quite good.) She has cooked and serviced people from all over the world for 20 plus years. We enjoyed it so much that we put down a deposit to get the duck dish the next night, but we wanted to eat it in our own villa that we rented, so she and her husband met us near our villa which was so nice of them to do! They sat down with us again where we met and we just enjoyed talking to them. And, we enjoyed the duck dish, too. I liked the banana chicken dish the best and the spouse like the duck dish the best, but both were wonderful to the palates. Thank you, Satri (and your husband), for a taste of Bali culture in your home dining room. A real treat!

Came here with my husband and friends and it was really good. We walked away first as there was noone but then decided to come back given we saw other good rewies on Tripadvisor. Definitely recommend and I will be coming back.
