"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!

They have one if the tastiest steaks in Surabaya. Our friends from states also agree with that, only that, our suggestion for you that love to taste your steak, dont use sauce too much, or dont use it at all, then you can taste how well they cook your steak. But if you want to taste how we, asian -... More

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

This is one infamous Steak place in Surabaya. The owner already run this steak cafe for 2 or 3 generations, maybe. The unique one is, they never have a credit card promo. Why? Because according to them, they are the generation to generation cafe, where people believe the quality, and will pass the news mouth to mouth. And heck, it... More
