We went here for brunch for it was very well recommended in the Lonely Planet. Although we didn't get any of the exotic stuff that we'd been told about, the dishes we tried were delicious. The ambience is nice too, just needs to be less hot—maybe some fans would be nice. The service was courteous—the place is a little way... More

Tembi rumah budaya is a very nice place to visit. There is a museum showing a bit about Indonesia's history and culture. You can learn more about Indonesia's traditional clothing, toys and furniture. Tembi is also a homestay. They have traditional Javanese huts where you can stay and when you are feeling hot, they have a nice and cool swimming... More

Good menu that is supposedly based on the ancient Serat Centhini recipes with local herbs and produce :) had lunch and dinner here several times and enjoyed each of them. Menu changes regularly but some of the staples such as rawon and pecel is a standby.

Been there again after a couple years. Still got a magnificent view and atmosphere. I was just eating at their restaurant (not stayed at the cottage) but it was still great. Lot of photo spots and great food also. Unfortunately they're running out of ice at the moment so we can't order their ice menu..
