Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant, the signature restaurant of the namesake Bebek Tepi Sawah Villas and Spa in Peliatan, is one of the best places in the Ubud area where you can enjoy great local and Indonesian cuisine in a unique, alfresco dining experience. Its rustic Balinese setting comprises raised thatched roof bamboo pavilions in different sizes surrounded by rice fields that cater to groups of varying sizes, from families and small groups, large festive banquets, and even romantic candlelit moments.
Come for dinner and you will be treated to a soothing experience as the rice fields are lined with oil torches with the natural sounds of crickets mixed with the flowing music of traditional Balinese gamelan. Dancers and Balinese musicians provide diners with live entertainment to complete this rustic Balinese dining experience. Saturday evenings from 19:30 onwards particularly feature dancers performing a lively Joged Bumbung repertoire accompanied by a bamboo orchestra.
While those staying at the villas have easy access to the restaurant compound, the venue is open for public and has quickly gained popularity among local and international visitors. Bebek Tepi Sawah is also a popular lunch stopover on tour itineraries through the Ubud and Gianyar region, including the Goa Gajah Temple which is only 1.5km down the Jalan Raya Goa Gajah road.
Brainchild of Balinese artist and Peliatan local Nyoman Sumerta, who decided to expand and integrate his longstanding art gallery with plush villas and this one-of-a-kind restaurant, his enterprise covers a total of 2.6ha and makes good use of its heritage landscape. Its name means ‘duck alongside paddies’, which perfectly fits its offerings. The signature menu item of Balinese style crispy fried duck is a mainstay favourite, which comes served with three different types of traditional sambal sauces: tomato-chilli blend, aromatic chopped shallots with chillies and lime, and sliced chillies in soy sauce. An alternate version of grilled duck is also available.
Other Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant favourites include ayam asap goreng, a fried smoked chicken served with stir fried water spinach and sambal sauce, and spicy grilled spring chicken that it interestingly lists on the menu as ‘grilled cock fighting chicken’. Ubud has been famous for its grilled pork ribs, served at several key restaurants located all over the region, and this restaurant has its own take on the mouth-watering favourite.
Juicy to the bone, the grilled marinade ribs are tender and infused with flavours, served with Balinese sides of stir-fried snake beans in coconut curry, with sliced cabbage and tomatoes that come as standard.
Bebek Tepi Sawah family recipes are well maintained, making it a great place to savour rich Balinese flavours and fall in love with the spiciness of the cuisine. There is also seafood on the menu, the likes of the fried or grilled gourami and prawn. Balinese must-tries besides the signature duck, include the bebek betutu and ayam betutu (slow-cooked smoked duck and chicken, the poultry equivalent of Bali’s amazingly juicy pork ribs or spit-roast babi guling ‘suckling pig’). Prices of the dishes range between IDR 51,000 to 95,000.
Under the Indonesian selections, there is a localised version of chop suey, and interesting items such as curried seafood with vegetables and steamed rice, chilli prawns, and the inseparable nasi goreng fried rice and Bali’s own nasi campur mix of rice with fried shrimp, chicken satay, veggies, eggs, sambal and crackers. If you can’t handle the spice levels, there’s a satisfying list of Western and Asian selections, from Nicoise salad and shrimp cocktails, to mushroom soup, vegetarian dishes and tempura.
