But the service is a little slow, I guess... More

A very special place, even though the place is older than me but I feel comfortable and fit. The atmosphere is very pronounced because of earlier times architecture of the building is still the original, many antiquities were still lined up neatly, the waiters were dressed in old-fashioned. The food is affordable here, you can find a variety of foods... More

Go here to experience the colonial admosphere of 60 years ago. The poffertjes, ice cream and cookies are delicious. Skip dinner menu, it is horrible.

I am pretty sure all I ordered some nasi goreng with ham (as that's unusual given its a Muslim country!) and I don't recall anything else on the menu as being overly exciting while the service is the usual relaxed service one gets accustomed to in Indonesia. Likewise, I am sure you can find better value price wise elsewhere. However,... More

i only tasted some of the ice creams that my friends and i ordered. i thought this was a cabang like they had in another city, but i was disappointed because most of the ice cream base was vanilla flavoured although they said it had this flavour and that flavour? Ragusa in jakarta is waay better than this.
