That you'll be here if you're locals, this restaurant establish since 1977 and will be Surabaya's favorit steak house. Even for me, it's a good taste. Great place (every location is upgrading), nice and hommey interior. The food is good, price is fair range 30-100K Recommended for outsider!!

It is not the universal standard steak. But you cant find it anywhere in the world! You have not been to Surabaya if you have not had this steak. I myself a regular visitor of this steak house. They also offer many varieties in their menus. But I never change my selection : breast chicken steak no skin

"Great" sums it up :) I'll be back on my next trip to Surabaya for sure. Simple, well cooked steak - tender and straight forward. Ahh!

This is one of the place to go for a family dinner. If you're going for a romantic date, there are many new cafes now opened more romantic than this one. Food is very stable and maintaining their good quality. Price wise it is pricy for Surabaya. Portion is medium to small. We ordered the steak which was good. The... More

This place serves great combination between traditional steak and nice set up. If you gon on romantic occasion, please go to Boncafe Restaurant in Manyar & better you go on 7 - 8 pm. They serve you well with nice interior. The tenderloin was nice and tender. Choose rare - medium cooked if you like. Great job!

My friend from Jakarta said this is the best steak in Surabaya... The delicious steak with unique Indonesian taste. But the price is not cheap and no discount from credit cards.

This is the most long lasting cafe known for its steak in Surabaya. I knew this restaurant for more than 30 years. Their steak is unique and is local translation of Italian steak. So if you visit Surabaya, make sure you visit and try Boncafe. I usually open with Asparagus Cream Soup. Together with soft roll, it is so yummy.... More
