If you do minahasa tour, and you will get lunch in this area. The traditional food is very good. We can try local fish. It's very delicious.

The Tondano area itself is beautiful, it's more of a mountainy area, so the weather is quite cool. There is a road that divides the rice padi field and at the background are hills and mountain, it reminded me of my trip to Padang, for I saw an almost the same view there with Bukit Barisan as the background.

First of all, this is a free local travel destination. And off-course, like most of the local travel destination in Indonesia, it's not much taken care off. The lake it self is a huge and calm lake with some original Minahasa daily life views. The place is not difficult to reach and nice to stay for 1-2 hours.
