Old style place to hangouts

My friend recommend this place for us, this place similar to Our Bar at Surabaya she said, but this is more oldies style. So we came here and found out that's right looks like old style Our Bar without live music and Dj. :) we were sitting at the balcony. Nice place. The indoor area was too crowded... read more

This is like a classic recipe i guess, But they have the best one in town. Moist and delicious on the inside with a crispy coating on the outside. The minus is the small parking area and no-AC here. So if its summer, you'll be sweating a lots then.

Best Onion Ring so far in my life, and I've had plenty, in different sporadic countries too. Cold beer served in frosted glass, just right. Food can take a bit long. Love the relaxed atmosphere and decor there, nice setting and terraces. Good price. Food taste average to very good. Good vegetarian options. Outdoor seating place which means smoking allowed...

They have a tiny kitchen and cannot possible cope. You could wait for more than an hour to eat. And the staff will not tell you this. When you ask, they just keep indicating soon...a few minutes more.

We had some late night cocktails here. Most prices around Rp 50-60k per cocktail, some around 80-90k. The bartender was generous on the alcohol on request. Long island ice tea was good. Margarita and golden sunset was not so good. Place decoration is very nice, felt like somewhere in Spain. People smoked everywhere and ventilation was not so good, and... More

Their Lasagna and Calamari are just excellent. It's worth every minute spent in the rain to get a taxi and definitely worth the price!

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
