Staying overnight in an old Dutch Colonial hotel was great, finding the On-On pub attached made it awesome. The pub opens at 6pm and is immediately filled with a mixture of ex-pats and locals. The food is a mainly western mix of dishes but there are also a few Indonesian dishes too, A wide variety of beers and spirits are... More

I have been several times now to the pub and the food is good and the prices of the beers are reasonable. I will continue to visit this home from home and enjoy the company of the people there. Good atmosphere at weekend. Great lamb curry!

My first impression about this place is great, compare with other places in the town On On is the best. Billiard and dart often available. You can enjoy it with ur friends. Once more, they have many expat there especially in friday night. Then the most i loved from the place is it is classic.

Made it to the ON ON Pub on the hill.First impressions are reasonable with good ambiance. Food catering for expat taste and style. Nice mellow background music. The place could do with nice Jazz duo or some live music. Staff is nice but kitchen service is extremely slow. They could do with a another chef to improve efficiency.

This pub has some rustic feel to the place. Onion rings and French fries with some good old friends is something you should try.

A great place for a drink, and the food is fine, and the prices are very reasonable. But the kitchen can be super slow. Forty-five minutes for tortilla chips? Recipe: take chips out of bag, put on plate. Sprinkle with grated cheese, chillis, etc. Put under grill until cheese melts. Voila! No reason that can't be on the table in... More

Only place to eat baby back in Semarang, sadly. Generous portion, and for the kids, a meter long sausage or bratwurst will delight them.

Enviroment is cosy but a bit rundown.The food is rather good but the service is very bad.Not crowded but still have to wait more than an half hour.The longer you stay the more they ask to make an order.!
