Ubud, Bali, Indonesia Travel Guide
Three Monkeys Cuisine & Art
I loved this restaurant. From the front, the Three Monkeys Cuisine & Art didn’t look like much. It just looked kind of cute with its thatched, grassy roof and long, hallway look. Its name, however, got my attention. I strolled in there only to find a very modern, casual and sleek open-air restaurant. There was a nice front area with tables along the wall and across from a counter and the host. I could watch all the action on Jalan Monkey Forest and the restaurants across the street. Behind the front tables and next to the counter was a little bridge and fountain with a pond. The floor was beautifully tiled with earth tones and the tiles led me to the back area of this “hallway” type of restaurant. The back of the restaurant had a very nice covered patio area and it was adjacent to rectangular pond. Beyond this pond was a gorgeous rice paddy. So, the Three Monkeys Cuisine & Art restaurant in Ubud managed to offer a whole lot more than good, quality food: it juxtaposed traditional, cultural and modern themes.
The restaurant had both local, Balinese food as well as western food such as paninis. I tried both the chicken panini with fries and Balinese/Javanese chicken curry with mei goreng and ayam betutu. A little pricy but this was my favorite restaurant in Ubud. Tasty food, reasonable prices, good ambiance and great decor and outstanding location next to a rice paddy make the Three Monkeys Cuisine & Art my favorite restaurant in Ubud. Wait, maybe the Rice Terrace Cafe is. Hmm.
