Clear Café, Ubud, Bali Indonesia

In a word: Cool
Food: Reliably tasty, quality ingredients and brilliantly innovative
Service: Smiley, attentive and effective
Presentation: Perfect mash up balancing chunky, airy and Balinese!
Ambience: Naturally cool with funky tunes playing all day long

Worth a visit?: Without a doubt!
