This place is just perfect!! The atmosphere was great, soooo romantic at night. Building and interior are old styled decorated. More importantly, super delicious dessert!!! I did not try the main course, but I definitely try the famous Java ice cream (mocca and rhum flavor) and several variants of cakes. The cakes are old styled, very different compared to the... More

The food is so-so but this historical building definitely exudes a charm dated back from the colonial era. The service staff is not very friendly. I went around 3pm, there is hardly any customers there and I actually expected a better service.

This is the first real meal we have and definitely not disappointing, Cumi-cumi is the word that remain in my head for a while - its actually cuttlefish. Great ambiance, not too crowded for lunch and the waiters are friendly. Will definitely come back.

The restaurant certainly has an old fashiooned charm and the availability of some Dutch dishes certaintly gives it a colonial feel. The desserts are pretty good and overall I recommend the restaurant but I don't recommend the mie goreng (fried noodles). This dish is really nothing special; it's basically just your ordinary cheap Chinese take-out fried noodles.

Be it for birthdays, new years, xmases, valentines, anniversaries, when asked, "which cake do you want?". 90% of the time, it would be Tip Top. Now that my husband and I live out of town, for every stop that we are in Medan, he has to have it too. That's the extend of our obsession. Although mostly we ordered cakes... More
