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.

A good 'tourist' restaurant with a wide choice of dishes. The food is well presented and tasty. A good choice if you don't fancy going too local!

Really nice decoration and ambience... Good juices and shakes... Buffalo steak... We heard them smashing the meat from the dinning room: maybe it was frozen, maybe it's the way to do it... The thing is that you can't expect a good cut of meat, coz it is not, and it was overcooked. Nice presentation with the hot stone by the... More
