There is a mixed choice of Ubud restaurants such as the classy modern looking restaurants, restaurants that only serve organic food and drinks or restaurants that have a gorgeous garden where you can sit on a big pillow on the floor.
But there are also the basic Ubud restaurants (but always with some nice decoration) that just offer you what you're looking for: good food.
At the end of every stay in Ubud I am always surprised though how much more money I spend on food than in other places in Bali. Lunch and dinner usually consist of three courses whenever I'm here ;-)

food right away. We've been to many restaurants and here are our favorites...
Luckily Bali is one of the number one destinations for the Japanese tourists resulting in Japanese restaurants of high quality.

This is one of the few Ubud restaurants with such a unique location: right in the middle of the rice fields. You can't even reach it by car because the paths are to narrow to get there. But if you don't feel like walking through the fields to get there, they even offer pick up service.

Compared to other countries, food and drinks at the Ubud restaurants are reasonable priced.
However there are Ubud Restaurants where you can really eat for much less and the food is really good.
We have found a couple of places scattered around Ubud which are even cheaper compared to other restaurants and have really tasty food too. Some serve food that you will only experience when you visit Bali or other Indonesian islands...
