Restaurants in Ubud
Ubud has as many choices when it comes to food as it does with accommodation. There are a huge number of Indonesian and Balinese establishments, as well as international cuisine from Turkish to Indian, Japanese to Vietnamese, Mexican to Californian raw food. From the internationally renowned, multi-award winning exclusive dining experience that is Mozaic, to the little unmarked warungs by the side of the road, you can eat magnificently in Ubud at any budget, at any time, on any day of the week.
Of course, it helps if you know where to go. There are also many nondescript eateries that cater to the tourist market, that aren’t bothering to try to attract repeat customers. Follow your instincts. Usually the crowded places are the good ones, and if you want to eat really authentic local food, eat where the locals eat.

Gourmet Shops in Ubud
Whereas twenty years ago it was impossible to find Western produce anywhere in Ubud, nowadays the homesick tourist can satiate most cravings. Bakeries and cake shops, chocolatiers and delicatessens, wine shops and juice bars all cater to Western tastes. You’ll pay a high price for the import duty on foreign produce, but every now and then for a fix of Italian mozzarella or Greek kalamata olives, it’s worth it.
One of the most expensive products on the island is wine, because it’s taxed at 280%. The Two Islands label is produced in Bali and is by far the most drinkable of the local wines. Otherwise prepare to pay up to three times as much as you might at home.
