Loved the relaxed atmosphere over looking the rice fields. Lots of options for children and I ate the Mie Gorang, it was amazing. Children loved going for a wander and feeding the fish.

Beautiful from the inside and from the outside. Nice rice fields and mountain view (if weather is good). Delicious food with big portions for reasonable price. Just loved it. Maybe the staff could've been more attentive.

Had to have lunch here as we were spending a day at Karsa Spa. If we had the time the time to venture else where, would definitely have ventured away from this cafe. Food is gross.

Especially in comparison to the wonderful spa, this cafe is a real disappointment. The setting is beautiful, but the food only fair at best, the coffee awful. If you are in the area stay to the drinks, they are good. Staff rather disinterested and not really helpful. What a shame, could be such a great place. Definitely a tourist cafe,... More

It is great if you have finished the Campuhan Ridge walk and want a drink, but the food is pretty basic and lacks much flavour. We came between spa treatments and I wasn't overly impressed. The views are lovely though, particularly if you get a hut above the pond.

My boyfriend and I got here in time to get our own private hut overlooking the rice fields, spa, and pond. It was an amazing start to our day, the green juice is delicious! Prices reasonable and no added service fee :)

We found the service very off hand. In particular, when we enquired about the shuttle service back to Ubud (which many spas offer complimentary) we were told it would be R10000 - which is ridiculous. The pizza was freshly made, but not particularly well made. Nasi Goreng was very average. The cafe probably generates enough income from visitors to the... More

Karsa Cafe/Kafe is a simple and lovely open air cafe ideally situated overlooking the rice fields. A perfect place to have a drink or food after the glorious walk along the famous Campuhan Ridge heading north from Ubud. This is one of the most beautiful walks in all of Bali. We sell simple but delicious Indonesian favourites and healthy, fresh juices. We have recently opened Karsa Spa nearby with Reiki, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue therapeutic and healing bodywork and organic spa treatments. Leave the hustle and bustle of Ubud for a day! Come and spend healthy time walking the ridge then relaxing at our cafe and spa. Our sunsets are amazing too!
