“An Experience You Will treasure”
“THE POND” is opening in Bali (Ubud) in July. It is a restaurant built and decorated with Balinese flair for energetic, vibrant colors, natural materials and classic colonial terra-cotta with a contemporary minimalist twist. Typically Balinese, it has a very open feel overlooking extensive rice fields and a large lotus pond. You can dine at tables or lounge on traditional mattress couches and observe part of the cycle of rice farming by day or lantern-lit eel searches by night (moonlight on rice paddies has a special magic).
Just as the décor and architecture fuse traditional and contemporary styles our chef has designed a menu to offer international favorites (with a hint of Bali spices) as well as uniquely Balinese dishes (like crispy duck & Grilled Baby Ribs Sambal Bali), and cuisine from other parts of Indonesia and Asia. Among other things we offer daily fresh local seafood as well as imported varieties. All of our food is prepared with naturally grown ingredients and we do not use monosodium glutamate (MSG). We have beverages to suite every taste and wine and cocktail lists. We take great pride in our coffees especially our Toraja Coffee, Balinese Coffee, Australian Coffex Coffee and Illy Coffee to finish off a perfect meal. Afterwards you can browse our mini library and visit our traditional Art and Gift Shop. We are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
But THE POND is not just another restaurant. It is a multi-function venue with a capacity for 250 guests in a versatile mix of restaurant and private rooms for special occasions, business meetings, community discussions, talk shows, product launches, performances etc. We provide free internet hot spot, a quality sound system, wireless microphone, UHV projector, special lighting and (by request) a band set - all available for your use. It could only be in Ubud that such a place could have the convenience of a central location, undercover parking AND beautiful rice-field views.
Inside our restaurant we will feature a Deli/Mini Market where you can find the freshest ingredients available, to create your own meals. In The Deli you can purchase fresh fish, a variety of meats, and a large selection of vegetables, fruits, wines and local and imported soft drinks. Everything you need to prepare fabulous meals from appetizer to dessert….and even the drinks. Take it home and prepare it yourself, or have our awarding winning Grill Master Chefs prepare the food for dining in or taking out. And for a meal that can't go wrong…..we carry packaged salads and sandwiches with all you need to make the perfect meal or picnic that will impress your family and your friends.
Our skilled and friendly staff will always be around if needed. We hope you will visit us and have a truly memorable meal, a successful business or social function or just hang out with friends for coffee or cocktails in what we hope you agree is the “coolest” ambience in Ubud. If you are lucky enough to live in Ubud we hope to see you many times. If you don’t, we hope to see you on this and your next visit to our lovely Island of the Gods.
