Rondji Restaurant in Bali

Dining with Campuhan Valley Views in Ubud

Rondji Restaurant complements the Blanco Renaissance Museum in Ubud, as an elegant restaurant offering alfresco dining with tasty Balinese, Indonesian and Western cuisine, all of which can be enjoyed with some breathtaking views over the Campuhan River Valley.

Rondji Restaurant bears a name that pays homage to the late wife and muse of legendary Philippine-born maestro Antonio Blanco, and is a great addition to the Ubud dining scene, enabling visits and tours to the museum to end with a sumptuous meal.

Only five minute’s drive west from the main Ubud hub with its royal palace and art market, Rondji Restaurant is an easy find, up on a hilltop over the valley. A steep driveway leads you right up to the gates of the museum, and the restaurant lies next to it. This latest addition complements the museum’s range of highlights and facilities that visitors can enjoy, either before or after tours through the palatial mansion that houses the Blanco family’s extensive paintings.

There’s a gift shop, the Blanco’s family temple and a vast garden and courtyard with exotic birds; and the restaurant is an evolution of the museum’s café that used to serve snacks and refreshments in a cosy Balinese setting.

Open for lunch and much recommended for dinners, Rondji Restaurant caters to groups and couples with its laidback but refined atmosphere, and romantic corners are also available with subtle lighting from lanterns hanging from foliage and candles atop white or red table linens.

The late maestro’s son, Mario, and his family made their idea of fine dining meets warm Balinese hospitality a reality, and the view and location has already played its part in the restaurant’s success. At sunset time, you’ll enjoy the great vista prelude to your dinner against the ever-changing colours in the horizon, whilst and dance performances are held every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 19:30 onwards. 

The menu is a varied one; must-tries include a Chinese duck salad for starters, consisting of succulent Peking duck roasted in five Oriental spices and served with mandarin pancake, cucumber, spring onion and plum sauce. You’ll also find various Western treats from spaghettis to sandwiches on the menu.

But while in Ubud it’s a good idea to discover some local tastes, such as the Manadonese empanada served with young spring onions and hot-and-spicy ‘dabu-dabu’ sauce from the Celebes. Go for the juicy ‘iga babi metunu’ grilled baby back ribs for some Balinese tastes, or the ‘ayam pedas Campuhan’ slow-cooked baby chicken for a hotter challenge. Cool down after with a molten chocolate cake. 

Rondji Restaurant’s team of waiting staff clad in elegant Balinese attire deliver attentive and courteous service. Although the menu and pricing fit into the fine dining category, the selections are full of flavours. For circles of friends, it is a great idea to experience the various dishes in a mix to share for a true culinary journey, and great spots with winning views are available for special occasions.
