Café Aras is een nieuw restaurant in de hoofdstraat van Rantepao. De eigenaar, Aras (arasparura@yahoo.com) is tevens een soort hoofd van de gidsen in de stad en handelt in antiek. Het restaurant is mooi ingericht met veel antieke versieringen aan de muren.Op de kaart staan zowel Indonesische (inclusief Toraja) gerechten als Westerse gerechten (steaks, pasta, pizza). Wij hebben er twee maal heerlijk gegeten, zijn ook Australiërs tegen gekomen die dolenthousiast waren over de steaks, maar ook het Indonesische eten was erg lekker.Ik had ook de indruk dat er veel gasten waren die na één bezoek vrijwel elke dag dat ze in Rantepao zijn daar eten.Is zeer zeker een vermelding waard. Iets duurder restaurant, maar zeker het beste waar ik in Rantepao gegeten heb.

Very good place

One of the few place in Rantepao where you can feel an international atmosphere. Good food for cheap. Nice service. You can't miss it if you stay in Rantepao.

Well unfortunately I didn't spend my time at Cafe Aras quite as I would have liked. While dining there I became ill with a stomach migraine (severe abdominal pain, nothing to do with the food) and as a result ended up on the restaurant floor, unable to move for 2 hours. The staff were very kind - offering me tea,... More

Considered one of the best places to eat in Rantepao, Cafe Aras is nothing more than just average. The food menu is suitable for vegetarians, with some salads and things. Get any salad with sauce on the side because it's just Mayo and ketchup mixed together. It's as vile as it reads. Order some fries maybe and put it to... More

Excellent food and juices. Reasonable prices. Aras is a great guy as are the guys that are there in the evening... a wonderful evening of guitar and singing. Most are guides but there is no pressure for trips... lots of good tips and an opportunity to go on a tour with one of them if you wish. Other travellers to... More

We ate vegetarian spaghetti and sate babi, both were quite nice. We've heard you should try the local chicken/pork with bamboo dishes there also.
