Great romantic dinner

This is an excellent spot to have dinner as a couple or in a group. There are two key areas of the building, one a more formal dining room and the other an open-air bar/lounge area. The food and service were very good!

This restaurant has many foreigners visitor that would like to experience Indonesian food. I believe since they have lots of expatriat customers the Indonesian food they served here become less Indonesian. The food here do not taste like the original one, but become very mild compare to the original Indonesian food. However for the ambience and decoration, the concept is... More

An interesting and historical ambience for a great meal. Quite enough for a intimate get-together with your spouse, friends or business meeting. Management should do something about the mosquitos - who seem to be voracious there, Good service and overall a pleasant experience!!!

I previously stayed at a Tugu resort in Bali and the food was fantastic. This Tugu restaurant in Jakarta did not disappoint and the food was delicious, beautifully presented and really reasonably priced

This venue never fails to impress, the decor is a feast for the eyes. I particularly like the pan-Indonesian menu which boasts dishes from all over the archipelago. The drink list is extensive too. To me, dining at Lara Djonggrang is a "must do" experience when in Jakarta. I have found that the service can be a bit hit and... More

Beautifully decorated restaurant in a house with many rooms and a water feature that runs through the middle of it. Definitely a place to take guests or to visit for an occasion. However, the food is inconsistent - it was perfect the first time i went, but the lobster was so undercooked the second time that it was translucent. When... More

This is one of my favorite restaurant. Good ambience, very authentic Indonesian food and delicious. There are wide selection of menus and they keep refresh it. Many menus here you hardly find in another restaurant. Must try!

Great decor and interesting rooms throughout. And the food presented beautifully and exceedingly tasty. And none of the patronizing 'tuts' when I ask for it not to be spicy - just good service. Expensive for Jakarta but still good value for foreigners.

Went for a birthday meal with my friend. It's a great place to enjoy the decor and food presentation. The only thing is its a pity the food is always too salty. Otherwise a place that all should visit.

That sounds very patronizing but it's the way it is; not many locals will come here. It is very expensive, but it does give a good flavor of the traditional Indonesian cuisine. And the atmosphere is nice as well (although the music can drive you crazy after some time and the rooms are rather bright). Nowadays I take visitors to... More
