From the moment we entered the gates of Mandapa until we left, we were treated to a wonderful night of luxury. We were driven to the bar on a buggy for pre-dinner drinks and enjoyed relaxing here and watching the sun set. Afterwards we were driven to our private bamboo pod on the banks of the Ayung River for our sumptuous meal. It was such a beautiful, relaxed setting. We were served additional complimentary dishes and surprised with an anniversary cake so we left here absolutely stuffed. It was a real treat and we'll always remember celebrating our anniversary here.

We went with friends for a farewell dinner with mixed results. The setting is very impressive, above the river and with imaginative design. However, there were not many people there which detracted from the atmosphere a little. We had two 15 year olds in our party and wanted to order from the al a carte menu but we're told that we could only have the degustation menu as the kitchen wouldn't be able to cope with al a carte for 6 as well as the degustation menu. Seriously??
The food and accompanying wines were generally excellent, although it's got to the point where you wonder whether chefs create food to be eaten or to be exhibited in art galleries!

We left with our wallets considerably lighter than when we arrived after what was a satisfying if not outstanding experience.

I took my boyfriend here for on his 30th birthday and it was such a magical experience we almost felt a bit emotional.
Before dining we had pre dinner cocktails at The Library. The dragonfruit cocktail was the best I’ve had.
We originally thought we would go for the degustation with matching wines but having done one the night before elsewhere, we decided to go A La Carte as the portions were slightly larger at roughly 120g instead of 90g on the degustation menu.
We picked three entrees and two mains to share, which were all outstanding. The ones the stood out were the lobster ravioli and the blackened cod. A bottle of Chilean red wine was matched very well for the dishes we chose.
Considering we usually edge towards bigger portions of food, this was the most full we have ever been.
We absolutely loved the chefs collection of mouthfuls in between too.
The service really was superb and thanks again Kabu for giving us an experience to remember.

We greatly enjoyed eating several dinners at Kubu. Interesting menu with a modest number of choices, all excellently prepared. Try to reserve a cocoon by the river for a lovely experience.
