Great views, great drinks, maybe even jumping squirrels
The Elephant - High Tea or Elegant Dinners with Mountain Views.

Calling all vegetarians and those in search of great earth friendly food with a healthy splash of decadence and cocktails.

On Jalan Tjamphuhan, Ubud, hidden down a little lane lies The Elephant Cafe. Promising to be 104% awesome.

Leaving the main street (Jalan) of Ubud, head towards the bridge, continue up the hill and on the right hand side, slightly away from the hustle and bustle, you will see a small black metal sign, just before a double story building which looks like a small shopping centre. Here there is a laneway which weaves down to a tranquil oasis that is The Elephant.

As you enter, you will be warmly greeted with a sign saying "wear your shoes or take them off, whatever makes you comfortable", thus the relaxed tone is set for your dining experience.

The view over the Tjampuhan gorge is worth it alone with many diners coming here for the sunsets around 5-6pm.

The Elephant offers many different drinks, including a full range of cocktails and their menu is bursting with green and raw options, however, if you are wanting something more substantial, there is a wonderful laksa, noodles and for starters perfectly pan fried dumplings or a myriad of other delectable treats.

To begin your sunset experience, perhaps begin with a shared antipasto platter, filled with marinated and grilled vegetables, fresh dips and lovely baked breads.

To include the little ones, The Elephant has a selection of kids meals including their usual favourites of cheesy pasta for 30,000 ($3).

The Elephant is actually rather well known and loved for their amazing and delicious salads, where you can choose from a selection of dressings - no rabbit food here!

If the heat has got to you, their fresh fruit juices are delicious and well priced at 20,000 ($2) or for an extra rp10,000 ($1) they can take your fresh fruit juice and blend it with ice into a frappe/slushie, perfect to cool down and so delicious when made with fresh strawberries or mango.

A glass of quite good red or white wine is around 65,000 ($6.50) and their bartenders can make you a lovely selection of cocktails for around the same price (As alcohol is brought in to Bali and usually quite expensive, these prices are very good).

For dessert, if you sweet tooth is calling there are freshly made treats, including white chocolate and raspberry cake or home made sorbets and ice creams.

An average meal for 2 with shared antipasto, main and a dessert to share (excluding drinks) should cost you around 250,000 ($25).

If you adore it so much you can't leave, you can stay for the day and pay 30,000 ($3) for the day use of the pool or perhaps even book a room and stay longer.

Come for the views, delight in the food and stay for the tranquility.
