Very nice atmosphere and location, beautiful set up. Staff were very friendly, and there was so many of them, but was left wondering about there bad service, so disorganised. The steak also disappointing, if you have on your menu certain cuts of beef, then make sure you serve that, and not a cheaper cut. Dessert was very nice.

Recently we visited holycow and we love the wagyu steak, lasagna beef, smooth icecream plus fresh fruit juice. The surroundings help us to accomodate our needs : food and chit-chat. Please try because it is excellent.

The staff is friendly but a bit disorganised. Menu has steak in various forms and sizes. Other than that an odd, but simple mix of Italian pasta and pizza choices. Refreshing if you have been eating Indonesian food all week, but relatively tasteless and expensive in comparison to local food.

We went there because we stayed in the hotel. We were surprised by the nice accomodation, very good and the good service. Prices were very reasonable.

My boyfie and I are fall in love with the steak. Can't find other better than holycow! Unfortunately, the side dishes are very bored. There'are only spinach and bean, also only mashed potato and fries. Oh ya, you can get a free plate of wagyu if you celebrate your birthday date on there! Yuhuu 🙊

If you want some nice steak, it is worth trying in HolyCow. Situated next too Grand Aston hotel, Holycow provide one of the best steak in town. Prices are reasonable for wagyu beef standard. The ambience is good too, with an outdoor or semi-outdoor dining place. It is more of a casual dining place, suitable for family or friends to... More

"Lagi habis" out of stock. We had to request to be served and to get a table at half empty restaurant. Steaks we diid get were... More

I visited Holy Cow when it first opened. The service was poor and the steak was terrible (everybody gets a well-done steak, no matter what you asked for). I decided I would never come back but I was forced to visit again last week with a group of friends. My tenderloin steak was delicious and cooked to a decent medium-well... More
