I visited this restaurant during my visit to Medan. The main reason was because of its popularity as one of the oldest and legendary restaurant there. Furthermore, the locals praise their ice cream. The restaurant is typical for the old ones in Indonesia. The atmosphere of old Indonesian restaurant that witnessed eras before and after independence can be felt there.... More

We intentionally went to this restaurant just for the ice cream. Not because we don't like the food, it's just we just had our dinner some place else and wishes to have a good dessert in a good place. We ordered 2 types of ice creams, and both are great. Ystaart Ice cream and Donauwellen Ice Cream. Recommended!

I really appreciate the owner's efforts to keep the resto decor as close as possible with it's original decor, but with much regret I would say that nothing special with the foods. I think the owner should concentrate on certain menu as their strength, to maintain taste and quality.

If you are westerner used to french bakery, this place is nothing special. Its fare can be had at most supermarkets in the West. If you are Asian, its bakery is a treat.

Chinese, Indonesian and Western foods are all offered here and the quality of the food was excellent. The service was quick and the food was hot and freshly cooked. They also offer baked goods to take away. We will certainly go again next time we visit Medan!

Located nearby most historical buildings in Medan, adorned with 20s architecture and ornaments, this restaurant has managed to put its name to the top of must-visit restaurants in Medan.
