Cafe Wayan, Ubud, Bali

Monkey Forest Road
Ubud, Bali
Telephone and Fax: +62 361 975447

On a recent trip we indulged in some serious relaxating and surprisingly some very delicious meals. We discovered a few places while staying in Ubud, one which was recommended to us by someone at the hotel we stayed at.

From what we remember this place had a great atmosphere- open air dining, frog sounds and what felt like your little personal jungle with some of the best tasting dishes AND great selection of desserts (and nice cocktails!) We were so glad to have eaten here. The biggest surprise though came with dessert. Apparently Wayan Metri is an accomplished baker (an understatement, the cafe also functions as a bakery and the cakes/breads on display look magnificent) and is famous for her wonderful desserts- the most famous being the death by chocolate cake.

By the time we finished our mains we were very full and weren't sure if dessert would push us over the edge. Just as well our greedy guts decided for us - we ordered the death by chocolate cake thinking it would be dense and cloyingly sweet, but were treated to a wonderfully light chocolate cake that melted in the mouth and was accompanied by a rich chocolate sauce and strawberries!

Overall our impression of Ubud was the place to go to in Bali where you find good food- there were a string of places we discovered towards the end of our stay including Three monkeys, Pundi Pundi, Rendezvouzdoux and Coffee and Silver and we were disappointed that we didn't get a chance to try out some of the other places (there are so many) but we were very happy with what we found, almost as much as this little guy we saw down in the Monkey Forest!
