When looking at food guides for Ubud, the lists can be overwhelming. In fact, we struggled to keep this guide to just our top 10 places. Not only are there options to suit everyone's taste, but the quality is high, and the prices are low. For travellers on a budget who still love prioritising food as much as we do, Ubud is the place to be and if you’ve come to Ubud with a health focus, that doesn’t just stop at yoga and retreats because there are places for every dietary requirement, with a healthy fruit juice to match.

Top Places to Eat - Murni's Warung





This vegetarian café has an industrial yet laid-back vibe, where you can relax in a lounge chair and listen to the buzz of the main street below. The menu is full of tasty food and refreshing juices, but most importantly, the coffee is great, and it's served with a little chocolate treat on the side.


Titik Temu Coffee is a renowned local Indonesian coffee brand, so for coffee lovers, their café in Ubud is a must-visit. They, of course, serve excellent coffee, along with food in a minimalistic and laid-back environment.

They not only mix modern and traditional through the dining experience but also with their venue. They are located within a palatial compound, Puri Anyar Heritage, once called home by Ida Tjokorda Gde Rai, who was a prominent wordsmith in Ubud. They are conveniently a short walk up the road from Ubud Palace and the Saraswati Temple, making this cafe a great choice for a coffee break while exploring the sites of Ubud.


If you are looking for somewhere to enhance your experience at the Tegallalang Rice Terrace, Tis Café is the place to go. The cafe has sweeping views of the rice terraces and two infinity pools. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly. They also have one of the famous Bali swings if you are keen to try that, and you can access the rice terrace from the café with no fee to enter.

When we visited, there was a minimum spend of 250K IDR per person for pool access. We also recommend booking online in advance to secure a table.


Located on Jalan Bisma, just a short walk off the main road Jalan Raya Ubud, is Pukako Bisma. We stopped here one lunchtime because we were craving a toasted sandwich, and this place delivered just that. They not only have a range of delicious toasties, but they also offer other breakfast and lunch items, good coffee and cocktails for later in the day.


Murni’s Warung was Ubud’s “first real restaurant”, which opened in 1974. The restaurant spans four levels, with open-air dining overlooking the lush forest and river below. We came here on our first night, and what a great “welcome to Ubud” meal it was. We could have ordered the whole menu, but decided on two dishes; the Beef Rendang, voted “World’s Most Delicious Food” by CNN Travel and the Chicken Tongseng. Both were packed with flavour and incredibly affordable, considering the popularity of this place. The staff were very welcoming, and by the time we left, we already had our order ready for next time.


Tucked away down a quiet alley, just a short walk from the main street, is a peaceful restaurant called Warung Gauri. As soon as you step in, you are welcomed by the friendly staff and calm atmosphere. The food and drinks are very affordable, with meals costing between 30-40K IDR. Centred around a fish pond, looking out over a rice field, this place is a great escape from the chaos of the main streets.


Set amongst the rice fields, away from the crowds, but only a short walk from the main road, is Sweet Orange Warung. To get there, you need to take the Sweet Orange Walk Trail.

There are plenty of seating options spread out across their garden, with a 360-degree view of the beautiful surroundings. Their delicious Indonesian food and refreshing juices are perfect after a morning of walking in the tropical Bali heat.


We had walked past Ikigai Ubud every day, but it wasn’t until our last day that we finally decided to try it, and we were glad we did. They have a huge menu with all your favourite Japanese dishes, including appetizers, sushi, soups and mains. The price range gives options for all budgets; you can have an affordable dinner or splurge a little, perhaps on a glass of wine instead of a Bintang (speaking from experience).


This Indonesian restaurant is a small shopfront overlooking a rice field, which makes for a very cosy and intimate dining experience. The menu is simple, with a few Indonesian dishes and a few western dishes, but everything is very affordable, including the drinks, with some cocktails as cheap as 35K IDR.
