This is an old restaurant near the old Dutch part of Semarang. It is decorated in Dutch colonial style, but I don't think the pace was ever plush or luxurious. It is still quite quaint though. There is an explanation of the history in the menu, but it is only written in Dutch. First it explains why it is called... More

The price is worth for the food and the taste is nice, when you see the packaging of the ice cream it feels like you went back to 19's century

For the ambience: Front view of the restaurant was so vintage seems they never change the decorations since the first built. When you enter the restaurant, you will see the classic decorations and still using oldies furnitures and stuffs. For the food : All the food was nice, and you will feel the sensation of old Dutch influenced-Indonesian food. I... More

I visited there for lunch. I tried the famous cordon bleu and it was very good. The chicken was fried till golden brown with melting cheesy filling. The gravy is flavorfull and goes well with this chicken. It is too bad that the service was not attentive. There were a couple of staff on the floor, but only one who... More

This famous resto is one of Semarang's must visit place actually. But it's more to have a feel of the old era. Because we found that the food is not that yummy. Ordered they signature ox tongue steak, Dutch style. Taste is bland and below standard. But we love some of their biscuits and cookies though.
