If you need a break from sightseeing and have a hankering for a tasty lunch in Ubud, take a look at these five dining destinations that are among the best restaurants on First Table.

Serving tried and true favourites, fill up on dim sum, or visit the Chinese BBQ section for roast chicken or duck with Hoison, crispy pork belly or peking duck pancakes, did you just start drooling?  For vegetarian and pescatarians, there's tofu, spicy seafood and aromatic fried rice. The Golden Monkey is right in the town centre of Ubud, so take a break from sightseeing and try out one of Bali's best lunch restaurants.

The perfect place to fill a hungry tum after a morning exploring, or where to fuel up before an afternoon sightseeing, Pesona Lounge is a beautiful combination of Indian heritage luxury and modern opulence.

All your favourite vindaloos. tandoors, Rogan Josh and the popular butter chicken are all on the menu with chicken, lamb and beef options. Mop up the curry with one of ten (yes ten!) types of naan bread, and wash down the feast with one of Pesona's bespoke cocktails.
