Been the 4th time to Boncafe and I order the usual. Grateful that the flaming salmon steak is as good as I remember. I haven't found its match in Jakarta. I hope I will, cause going back and forth to Surabaya to satisfied my craving on salmon steak just won't make sense. Haha.

Came here as recommended by local business partner. Interestingly, their specialty are well done steak. Perhaps, Indonesian can appreciate such steak. But for a meat foodie like me, this is just 101% absurd and disrespectful! No - No!

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!
