Indonesian style steak

Steak is served with hotplate with gravy sauce. I ordered pork steak and fetuccine carbonara and it tasted fairly good. This restaurant is famous for locals. Service are good and the place is clean. The price is ok.

Nice place to eat if you want a night off from local food. Modern, clean environment. Very reasonable prices, nice steak. Crew was very kind. Would recommend this to everyone visiting Surabaya and who just wants to have a no fuzz, no complicated steak. Good price-quality rate.

A restaurant of western and Indonesian food. It looks like a house and cozy place for family and business appointment. The steak is delicate and my favorite is the es puter (traditional ice cream with coconut taste and marbles). It also has the coffee shop next to it, within the premises named Gourman. The price though is not cheap comparing... More

It's not your typical westerners style steaks, I had tenderloin steak medium and my medium well, and it come out well done. The gravy was ok but it taste weird when it's cold. It's famous for surabayans due to its been selling steaks for ages... If you want to try old style Javanese steak then you should probably try it.

I enjoy every moment i celebrate my birthday in this restaurant from the time it was first established on Jalan Gubeng until now when Boncafe has more than one restaurants. What I like from this restaurant is the way the steak is served. It is so complete. Quality is the main thing i admire from Boncafe.

indonesian taste steak with gravy sauce is good. I'll Miss it if haven't eat at Boncafe for long time. Price is not expensive for steak. Must try if you've been at Surabaya.

I 've been here for few times, and for me, the best steak with affordable price in Surabaya is in Boncafe. The ambience is perfect for family gathering, or birthday party. So, just enjoy.... :)

I dont like my steak with gravy although the whole steak menu requires gravy to eat as it will be bland without it. For people who loves gravy this restaurant is perfect for you. It is adequate with the prices as well.

I tried lontong cap gomeh, they served in detail, separate all the vegetable, chicken and spice, you can mixed by yourself, and the taste is really really good
