I have been going to this wonderful gem for several years now. My last visit was a little disappointing though: 1. My favorite morning meal there, is a "Hash Eggs Bene" - it's 2 rounds of hash brown potatoes; (I add crispy bacon), 1 poached...egg on each hash brown bacon, and a nice "Bali' Hollandaise sauce. It also can come with spinach and creamed mushrooms. I skip the spinach and get the mushrooms on the side (they are excellent). Well, yesterday they told me they don't do the hash browned potatoes any longer and serve it all on 2 shredded Cassava patties. I was VERY upset. BUT, I ordered it anyway and when it arrived the Cassava patties were actually very very good (and maybe healthier) and I couldn't tell the difference between hash browned potatoes and the hash browned cassava!!!!More

We live in Ubud so come to Mother weekly. We like the breakfast menu, especially the Nut Butter smoothiebowl and Gingerbread Latte. Usually we come as couple so only sit at one table, but since a family member arrived in Bali last week for long...term, we came to have dinner yesterday with 3 people. So we connected two tables but were told that that's not allowed. So we asked why, because eating with 3 people at one small table is not possible. The staff answered that that's the rule "can not connect the tables because need distance". We were disappointed because we always had a good service before at Mother. Unfortunately this means we can't eat at Mother anymore with 3 people since it's not allowed to connect two tables. And it would be sad for our family member to sit alone at another distant table because its not allowed to connect the tables. Strange rule and not good for the business as they have now lost a weekly client...More

There's been a miscommunication. We have very heavy marble topped tables on thin legs, numerous times a day customers rearrange our 2 seater tables and for safety we ask that guests don't move our furniture. This is for safety. We have many 4 seater tables...More

Great choice of vegetarian & vegan dishes, deliciously prepared. The staff could be friendlier and more attentive to the custoners, we were the only ones present that evening but the waitress was not into quality service. The lack of service and friendliness did reduce the...pleasure of our experience unfortunately.More

Such a fantastic restaurant in Ubud! We ordered 3 different meals and all were very tasty. Quality food with great flavor. The beef dish was the most tender I’ve had. As for the service, absolutely wonderful! Ibu Putu was so professional and friendly. We were...so lucky to have her as our server! ThanksMore

Great and healthy breakfast options (did not look at the rest of the menu), very accessible menu for the whole family. Portion sizes were very substantial. Waiting staff very friendly. The place is up to standard and perfectly clean, but if you are very sensitive...to health protocols during COVID19, this might potentially not be the place for you.More

This is one of my favorite breakfast places in Ubud but I had never been there for dinner. Tonight I went with a friend for dinner. I ordered their Oaxacan Mexico Chicken Mole. WOW. Not spicy but the sauce is very dark in color with...lots of spices and even chocolate that makes for a wonderfully full-flavored rich sauce. The chicken was a perfectly cooked leg & thigh. It came with rice and a salad. I have visited Oaxaca in the southern part of Mexico some years ago. The city is famous for their Mole sauces and one should visit several restaurants there to try the different family recipes. I did and fell in love with this sauce. So I was hoping that WAMM's version would be even 80% of my memories of Mexicos. It was at least that good! I will go back and I will order this again. It's a nice restaurant overlooking a large soccer field where today, the kids were flying kites. The service is also very good!More

They have a red velvet chai that I am simply addicted too. Their breakfast menu is delicious and has enough options to suit everyone.

Prices are so high for what you get. They excuse it by saying that everything is organic and free-range - when available (and I guess it wasn't available that day). I had a panini with ham (ham is another 25k+tax) and got 2 tiny pieces...of ham in horrible bread filled with non-organic tomato. I couldn't even feel the taste of ham. My bf had another dish which was also bland and overpriced. Service is amazingly slow, it took more than 30 minutes to get our simple dishes. Also, it doesn't have a smoking area although both floors are open-air. Staff told me to smoke in front of the restaurant, and there's not even a trash can or anything outside where I can put off my cigarette (so much about them being eco-friendly). Also, there's not even a sign that it's a non-smoking restaurant. The only way I can explain how this place has 4.5 stars is - it got good reviews from all the gullible people who don't even know how organic food tastes like, but they believe this place is organic, eco-friendly and supporting the local community. If you don't like being ripped off, avoid it like a plague.More

I must say one the best meal experience I’ve had in Bali in this price range The food is sublime, fresh, and inventive with local produce much of which is organic. We had an indulgeng fish curry with persion rice. And Ibu Putuh provided the...best service along with her team. Having tried many restaurants in Ubud the location and quality is unbeatable.

We were there with our friends and we all ordered different tasting sets..none of us finished the food, because it didn’t taste good at all. Their mocktails are very small considering the price and coconut was not even cold. One of the worst food experiences...in Ubud. Definitely wouldn’t go back.More
