Kebun, a charming Provencal-style bistro in downtown Ubud, offers authentic Mediterranean cuisine in a delightful atmosphere.
Its informal ambience welcomes diners for lunch, afternoon coffee and cake, tapas, cocktails, and late-night light dining daily.
Indonesia’s fragile environment deserves our protection: all the wood used in Kebun’s decor and furnishing is recycled. The pizza and cheese boards are made from recycled teak from Kalimantan. All the wood trim is from Java as is the authentic 1940s furniture. The cast-iron Singer sewing machine table bases topped with marble are at least 50 years old and the old porcelain door knobs were sourced from a flea market in Paris. Kebun’s feature wall is constructed from local river rock. The outside floors are limestone slag and the interior floors are terracotta tile, a traditional craft on the island.
Once inside the welcoming front door, notice the hand-hammered copper pots and ceramics, all made in Indonesia by traditional craftsmen with passionate attention to detail. The large open kitchen is ventilated with hand-made copper flues.
Food delivery is packed in recycled paper and local organic produce is used whenever available.
Food waste from the kitchen is composted except for the bones, which are distributed to the delighted dogs along the street.
