One of the nicest restaurants in Medan with a cost environment. Live piano music and food is good, really like the lamb fried rice. Useful tip: if you are in a group of 5 people you get a bottle of Beringer Sparkling almost for free. Good selection of wines, which is rare in Medan.

Overpriced by Medan standards, both the food and the drink. But if you want reasonable western food in Medan, there are not so many choices.... We decided to go for the Saturday evening buffet dinner, which is much more reasonably priced at IDR 110,000 (compared to dishes that cost 3 or 4 times that). Fairly good selection (but not as...

Been there few time a while ago when I was in Medan, they have good quality steaks and they have beverage option which I always enjoyed with my colleagues after work...they divided two places between dining area and lounge area,which is very good for the customers, will recommend this place for sure for everyone.

Every businessmen should try to deal with, lunch or dinner with Western style and beer. Bring your partner to try but not your life partner.

Food fair, atmosphere ok but they do bait and switch on customers when it comes to the 'special deals' offered during happy hours. It happened to me and several other people on different occasions and the bar staff just laughs it off. Avoid the place unless you enjoy being ripped off.

The restaurant has a good atmosphere and service. Yet, the overpriced food doesn't reflect the quality.
