Nice restaurant, average taste but not bad

It's a nice restaurant. They offered various local dishes auch as nasi goreng, ayam goreng, etc. The price of the food was acceptable. However, the taste of the food was not special, average.

Javanese menu provided. And seems the busiest place to eat. It is hard to find food in town but at least Mr Cafe could fill the gap for this. The food choice is basic Indonesian food. The taste is Ok, and please do not compare the food in Java or Bali. The price is affordable and value for money compare... More

We ate here most nights during our stay and found the food was consistently good. They don't have beer but are happy to open it for you if you bring your own (available from the Chinese shop on the bridge round the corner). We particularly liked the Spicy fish.

Neat place with good food and service with a smile. Menu is Indonesian/Chinese with some international dishes. Presentation is nice, order to serving time is short. Locals reckon that this is the place unlikely to cause visitors any inconvenience.

Delicious local food at a great price. I had the best Nasi Goreng I've ever had and that made me go back and be more daring. The first day I ate there a staff member followed me out and held an umbrella while I hopped into the car outside (it was during a tropical downpour).

Lonely Planet missed this one. I found based upon Trip Advisor and was I impressed! Beer is not served, but the restaurant doesn't object to you bringing your own. I went 2 nights and was delighted with the orders and service, which in both cases is as good as anywhere in Indonesia. I tried nasi goreng, mie ayam, ikan goreng,... More

A cap cay and any other meal with it would definately be enough to last you from lunch to dinner as the meals are of a reasonable size and filling and are tasty as well. A tall cold glass of sirsak to have before, with or after a meal is a must but don't expect to be able to find... More

...but the seafood reastaurant (shack) in the harbour is MUCH better. Basic Indo fare here. Rice and chicken, chicken and rice, or chicken fried rice, etc... They also have noodles.
