The best restaurant in Waingapu

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.

Being a vegetarian, there are not many options to look out for at Waingapu! The only decent hotel where you get vegetarian (Cap Cay with white rice) was Mr. Cafe. So we had our breakfast, lunch and dinner at the same place. Friendly staff and inexpensive food! My friends were non-vegies and they loved the food too. Overall - Good... More

Among the large selection of eateries in Waingapu, Mr Cafe is a centrally-located, easy to find all-day restaurant near the main market, the Merlin Hotel and the Catholic Church of Wara whose tower may serve as a landmark. Mr Cafe's staff are used to foreigners who lack Indonesian language skills. Try the local coffee and the fresh sea fish.

probably because not many dining options in the city Waingapu, or does this place the 'most delicious', this place is always crowded when it comes time to eat, and for some time I came in town this place is almost always the choice to end the meal. standard food restaurant food is generally tasty as well as with service and...
