Stayed the Hermitage and stumbled on this restaurant about a 10 min walk from the hotel. Has the ambience of a Javanese inn and the kitsch to boot. Food is so-so but the prices smack of 5 star. Mosquitoes were evident even in the air conditioned part of the restaurant.

This restaurant is housed In an old house with very many small rooms beautifully decorated and full of antiques and curiosities. It primarily serves tourists either individuals or often groups. We were 16 people in a lovely room. The meal was beautifully presented with each diner given a large plate on which were many small banana leaf plates each with... More

Good Indonesian food in a beautiful setting. Every room has its own style. Excellent service. What we enjoyed were some of the more traditional Indonesian dishes ( bandrek, a beverage and keredok).

Super friendly staff, got a little tour of the place, great menu with many selections from several different regions of Indonesia. Decent cocktails and a good local dessert assortment. Expensive for Jakarta, but still good value for a tourist - my meal would have easily cost more than double in Singapore or New York.

Set amongst stunning surroundings of various themed rooms. Enjoyed Gado Gado and a Gumare Goreng presented beautifully. It's in the heart of Cikini thus very central to medium priced hotels.

It's in Menteng, not too far from Kuningan, our hotel area. We didn't book a table. I suggest you may. The ambience is really nice. There are different types of rooms with various deco. Smoking, non-smoking, private rooms, etc... Wow... it was difficult to choose, they are all unique. The menu is extensive and... expensive (not too, but it's on... More

Really love the food they served. So Indonesia.. And we were served like king and queen. The atmosphere is so mystical with so many antique ceramics from China, and I felt like I was in Prambanan Temple seeing Roro Jonggrang statue. Very incredible experience.

We went to this hotel with some friends. The decor was awe inspiring with a lot of antique looking art. There was a lot of water and lanterns to help set the mood. we were definitely impressed when we walked in. The service we received was equally as good as the ambiance.
