Why 1-star? - Simply because they served under cooked nasi goreng. Even the chicken satay that comes with it was under cooked. - See the attached pictures. Other feedback - Dine at this restaurant a number of times. Staff is always very polite and helpful. Reasonable prices and decent ambiance.

for a restaurant in so premium a property, this is dirt cheap. They have a preset Mexican menu for dinner which is for only 150k and includes soups/ salad, main course and dessert. Options for main course are plenty. We ordered soup, chicken fajita, chicken quesadilla, guacamole and chocolate flan. Best - guacamole with chips...it was chips as the chips... More

After staying at the Keraton hotel over a year ago, my wife and I decided to go back to Bengawan and bring along 16 friends for my birthday. We had a large crowd, and by Indonesian standards, they handled us quite well, even dividing up 8 different bills! The food was among the best Mexican food I've had in Asia,... More

Definitely good mexican food. Guacamole was fantastic, my steak burrito cooked perfectly. BUT, the five star hotel setting and prices are a bit excessive. Not exactly the kind of decor or ambiance you would expect at a mexican restaurant. Prices are steep too, drinks are crazy expensive. We had a big group (17 ppl) so I guess it was hard... More

This restaurant is located in luxury Keraton at the Plaza next to Plaza Indonesia. This is a special place for discerning diners as the restaurant ambience is second to none for private or business meeting. I'll have no hesitation to go visit again if I am back to Jakarta.

Tortilla soup was particularly good, service was also excellent, attentive without being intrusive. Ambiance is slightly too dark, perfect space for a couple. Head chef Lamberto was very friendly.
