The old face of Batavia

Restaurant is located in the heart of the old town with museums in the surrounding area. The food was excellent, the ambiance was great. The building is a renovated colonial building, very history and beautiful.

The taste of meal is not special but the prices are rather expensive.. in other hand, we can find the ancient period actor, actress... More

Lovely reception and serving staff in this historic building, very good winelist in a difficult city if you love your wine, good selection of cocktails and beers and an extensive menu of both Western and Asian cuisine. Sunday fish and chips was very poor, frozen chips, soggy batter fish and... More

Visited Batavia On our first night in Jakarta. The place was okay. There were Some other Dutch guests, so I guess this place is wellknown with tourists. The prices matched that hinch... Because it was fairly expensive, the locals who were present, were more of the snobbish kind. It is an okay place for one Quick drink. I did enjoy... More

A very old building brought back to life by recreating memories of an era long gone by......the food was good but the service was exceptional and one can actually spend hours looking at the photographs which adorn all the walls. A must visit place if you are in Jakarta for a couple of days.

It will take you back to the Dutch Batavia, very little in Jakarta is left from that era and this cafe/restaurant is a perfect example for that. This is also accompanied by nice food and decent value.

Okay, this is a little bit late review though. I was here one year ago with my girlfriend. This place is 2 stories, on the first is a lounge, for coffee/tea time or casual drinks. On the second floor is the restaurant. I guess this place was built back on dutch colonial era, the concept is old and vintage, gloomy... More

It's an excellent restaurant in the heart of the old town. Very pricey for Jakarta prices, but awesome food and fruit juices.
