I’ll be honest, what first drew my attention to Casa Luna was the case full of luscious cakes facing the street, so it was added to my "must try" right away, although I didn’t get a chance to sample it until my last day in Ubud.
The dining area of Casa Luna
Behind the narrow entry from Ubud’s main street is a large airy open dining area. There is additional seating and a sort of lounge down stairs as well. The menu at Casa Luna is an eclectic mix of Mediterranean, Asian and Indonesian cuisines. I was in the mood for something light, and settled on a Vietnamese chicken salad, with an apple-mint juice to drink.
Vietnamese Chicken Salad
The salad was quite good, although I’m not sure what was "Vietnamese" about. There were large chucks of chicken, as well as avocado, with a light vinaigrette dressing.
Ice Cream and Cookies
Since it was their sweets display that first drew me into Casa Luna, I felt compelled to try something from their dessert menu. I decided to try the "cookies and ice cream" item. I was hoping for a large soft cookie topped with a large scoop of vanilla, but instead it was some crunchy chocolate-chip cookies crumbled over the top of a dish of ice cream. It may not have been what I was expecting, but it was good.
Casa Luna is not cheap, but the quality of everything is quite good. Expect to pay at least 60,000 Rupiah per person for a light meal. The restaurant is run by the same people who also run Indus as well as a cooking school. See their web site for locations and more details.
