You know Ubud is the creative heart of Bali – it’s bustling, busy and unbelievably beautiful. And while people might visit for the unique and vibrant local art, the scenery at Ubud is just as amazing as any masterpiece.
Why bother to take a sightseeing tour when you can enjoy the amazing scenery over a leisurely lunch or a romantic dinner?
Ubud has it all – jungle, valleys, waterfalls and paddy fields. Fortunately it isn’t just a feast for your eyes – the food is equally divine!
These are the dining experiences that you, and your photo album, will remember forever!
The Queen of Ubud – Murni’s Warung
Everyone in Ubud knows Murni’s – ask any taxi driver and they will take you to her fantastic hillside restaurant.
Murni’s Warung is iconic; it’s almost as well known and popular as Ubud itself.
Murni opened her little Warung with just 1 table, 2 chairs and an icebox in 1974, and her devoted and ever growing number of satisfied customers has been increasing ever since.
The restaurant now sprawls over four levels down the side of a steep valley – land that used to be farmed by Murni’s father.
Murni’s Warung by the roadside on level 1, and immediately look out on to the luscious hillside greenery. If you want to be by the river, then descend down to level 4 and find a table on the terrace. The lazy river snakes past below you, and in front of you is a sprawling wall of foliage.
The only reminder of modern day life is the bridge above you; which makes the valley haven look and feel even more precious.
Murni’s serves a wide variety of homemade dishes with plenty of external influences from travellers that Murni has met over the years. Daily specials ensure that you never get bored of the menu – no matter how many times you go back!
The best thing? You can order as many desserts as you want and be guilt-free as a good workout is available via the steep stairs down to the river.
If you love Murni’s Warung, make sure to check out her guesthouse and craft shop for a truly authentic Balinese experience.
We love Ubud and we definitely love Murni’s!
