I'd heard so much about this restaurant from friends that I decided to pay a visit and see what all the commotion was about. What a surprise. A very fashionable high class little restaurant. It can seat only about 20 people so making a reservation is really a must. The menu is a mix of set tasting menus - about seven in all ranging from 5 to 7 courses and a one page A la carte menu however there is an extensive choice of dishes from which to choose from. I had the scallop starter which was divine - several of my friends had the tuna belly and were in awe at its presentation and taste. Angus Tenderloin steak to follow for me - one of the best steaks I have had. Friends had Wagybeef and others had the rabbit or lamb curry - each dish worthy of writing home about. A beautiful selection of breads was also offered as well as hors d'oeuvres of cassava, (singkong), crunchy crackers with chilli sauce - simply delicious and fried quails eggs on bruschetta - wonderful. Pineapple sorbet arrived between the appetizer and main courses. All of these dishes were beautifully presented - real works of art. Prices are very reasonable for this standard of food and presentation. Appetizers are around Rp85K each and mains range from Rp350K to Rp695K for the Wagyu beef. Desserts are delicious and beautifully presented again. Any issues, well yes, and Teatro Gastroteque is not alone in this. While the wine selection is very good, they only had a few bottles of the white wine we chose for starters so we had to make alternative selections after our first choice had finished. Another little niggle was that I and several of my friends love cheese as an alternative to desserts but cheese is not offered on the menu. Hopefully this will be resolved soon. Back to the plus points - staff are simply excellent, so friendly, welcoming and attentive. The menus are changed every 6 weeks or so and a new selection of delightful culinary treats is on offer to tempt. For that special occasion or to simpltreat yourself of your partner or friends Teatro Gastroteque should be VERY high up on your list of places to try. Simply superb.
