Description: The idea to establish Loewy was a spontaneous one: that there is a need in Jakarta for a casual bistro – an everyday place with an interesting but accessible menu, a well-designed but informal décor, and adding to the mix: a buzzing, energetic bar serving the best, stiffest drinks in town.The inspiration came from traditional Parisian bistros by way of New York City. The style of the interior is retro/classic with a modern interpretation. The original Thonet chairs, the leather banquet seats, the subway beveled tiles, the tin and copper ceiling panels, the white brick walls; evoking this “Paris bistro meets New York loft in the 1940’s feel. It is then combined with a modern layout and concept, creating an overall ambience that is uncluttered, clean, understated, and timeless.

We ordered from a very extensive menu and the dishes were of a high standard, very nicely presented and the service was fast, friendly and proactive. A three-course dinner for 3 people with cocktails and 2 bottles of wine was approx IDR 2.5 million ($200) I'd go back again. It was quite good VFM but, as everywhere in Indonesia, alcoholic... More

Great, relaxing atmosphere. Love it! Would go back in a heartbeat. Had a business dinner here with a few out of town clients, they were very impressed with the quality of the food, and the atmosphere of the place.

We were recommended a well known restaurant across the road but thought we'd visit Loewy's for a quick drink. A comfy seat at the bar, great cocktails and beef sliders got us going. Cocktail staff were great. Wine staff were knowledgeable. Food continued with great steak. Great night out. We never made it across the road...

It was my second visit here and still love everything about it. I don't live in Jakarta but do come to this city quite often. I was so glad that I had a chance to come to Loewy again this time during my short vacation. Service was great as well as the food, the highlight on my lunch time yesterday... More

Even though this place is jammed packed, we managed to get a table facing the balcony. The music is too loud and we barely can hear any conversation. The food is good but, I would like to come here not in dinner time. This place has to be enjoyed during daytime. Drinks are okay. Plenty of expats and it gets... More

There is no doubt that Loweys is the place to be seen….for the beautiful people. The menu is extensive and the food always good. The wine list is also impressive although the knowledge of the waiting staff a bit hit and miss….be sure to check they serve you what you order (and not an inferior year…). The overwhelming impression however... More

One of those pretentious places where people like to hang out to be seen. Almost always full. Hip atmosphere and interior. Could get very noisy with the music and people chattering since the tables were close to each other. Outdoor seatings on the terrace is a better, quieter choice if you want to have a conversation without having to shout.... More

Lunchtime is better if you want a more relaxed atmosphere and you may not need to book, definitely need to book in the evening when the bar gets a little crowded. I would eat there again as everyone enjoyed their meals

Service was so slow and food was very average. Moved to the bar and the service was better but waited 15 mins for my bill when there were only 6 customers in the place. If this place was in a different location no one would go, also a pick up place for expats looking for some local girls
