Description: Voted the best cocktail bar and awarded for having the best interiors in Jakarta, Potato Head Brasserie serves classic bistro fare and drinks especially concocted by mixologist, Dre Masso. With its vintage lamps and fittings, large vertical garden, planters along its outdoor seating space, it creates an inviting atmosphere that has turned it into a local favourite. Additionally, to pay tribute to old Jakarta in contemporary fashion while staying true to our support of the local community, we commissioned murals from young contemporary artist Eko Nugroho.

“Great burgers and fantastic Caesar Salad.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Potato Head in Pacific Place is a nice place for lunch or informal early dinner. Ate here several times. The burgers are probably the best in town, the steak sandwich is great and the Caesar Salad is beyond any doubt the best I had in Jakarta (and many other places around the world). Good selection of exotic fruit juices. The service is ok, nothing special, but you do get served within a reasonable amount of time. It's quite a bit more expensive than other eateries in the area though. It definitely pays to have a CIMB debit/credit card which entitles you to a 25% discount.

“Appalling Customer Service!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We tried to walk-in for a Monday dinner last month. We got there just after 6pm and asked for a table of 3 as locals but the staff at the front desk said the place was already full. Without offering an alternative my friend asked her whether there's a waiting list. She just said we should try calling the reservation team to make a booking.

I was getting annoyed and then asked her in English whether the reservation team would know better about the waiting list status and if so I would make the call right in front of her. She then said the rev team would have to check with her anyway!

So finally she revealed a waiting list with no names listed and put our contacts on top of the page. We asked for a 9pm spot for drinks. Not surprised we didn't receive any follow-up call.

“Drinks and Hangout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Great place to hangout with friends, colleagues, and spouse/partner!! The drinks are amazing, though food was so so. Some is very good, some is not. I love the ambiance here.

“Superfically pleasing, then you scratch beneath the surface . . .”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The restaurant looks impressive and the bar is very nice. I went with a friend and we both had steaks. I ordered mine medium rare and I think it was still mooing when I got it. The presentation was poor. Served on a lukewarm skillet plate that brought back memories of forgettable places like Sizzler. There is no value and the menu is horribly overpriced for what you get. There are a myriad of other places to go and spend that kind of money on better food in Jakarta. It seems to be a place to be seen by new money Jakarta that is long on style on short on substance. I would never eat there again.

That said, the bar is nice. Limit yourself to the overpriced drinks if you go.
