Why did we dine here? – I Made Joni in Ubud, Bali is a touristy place, famous for their deep fried crispy duck. It is located near the center of the island in lush and beautiful Ubud, roughly 5 minutes from downtown Ubud. Our tour guide suggested we visit this restaurant for lunch. Apparently many tour guides come here. We had just came from a ‘mini’ lunch at famous Ibu Oka for roast pig, so we stopped in to try the duck. The pig at Ibu Oka was ok but far too small portion wise. The Trip Advisor ratings are very poor for this restaurant with a majority of terrible reviews. 2.5 out of 5 rating.

There is a rice patty right next to the restaurant, which makes the view stellar.

Service – Bebek Joni and drop and go service. You had to track down servers.
Verdict – Bebek Joni serves up great duck. Service and other dishes may be below par, so order carefully.
Come here for lunch, admire the view, and order nothing but the duck.

Bebek Joni’s Menu has a wide variety of items including many Balinese dishes. We wonder how good some of these are.

Bebek Joni Food Picks:

Bebek Joni Bali Smoothies

Bebek Joni Bali Kropek Fried Chips

Kropek Fried Chips were complimentary. Cripsy fried goodness for free!

Bebek Joni Bali Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng Kampung (69,000) Eksolica local sauce, fried rice with chicken was slightly above average. Not as good as the one we had at the St Regis buffet! Flavors were muted, quantity decent.

Bebek Joni Bali Crispy Duck

Crispy Duck (95,500 = US$8) Fried crispy duck with Balinese special sauce and satay, served with vegetable and steamed rice. Wow this was great. Deep fried crispiness, tender meat, and good duck flavor. Almost ordered another one! The sides were pretty average though. We tried the same Duck dish at the notorious Bebek Bengil (92,000) and Cafe Wayan (95,000) restaurants and found this one the best.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)
None

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
None
