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

waiting almost 1 hour to have the food served. when finally the foods out, only 2 were served (I came with 4 people in the family) and they absentmindedly said all the menus are out. truly breaking the mood for dinner. just because it's Saturday night, doesn't mean the service can be lacking.

For me, they have the best steak in Surabaya. Especially their Tenderloin steak and Chicken Steak. It's so delicious. They have a wide range of menus to choose from. They have a really convenient place. Great for birthday parties. Big place and also great value.

They claim to have the best steak in town. I hope that's not true. The steak was ok though. Especially when you consider how cheap it was. Therefore you can't complain. The fresh juices are nice (as usual in Indo)
