“New place in Kemang ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Normally I won't go to a new restaurant in Jakarta for at least 6 months, gives them enough opportunity to solve their service issues. Largo Bistrot has only been open 2 months but as it's only 70m from home we visited this evening. What can I say, we should have come sooner. Operated as if the staff have years of experience the food and service was excellent. Finally, somewhere that serves an iced tea in a decent sized glass and not fully loaded with ice. This is the only place in Indonesia that I've not had to order a second non-alcholic drink. Duck pate was excellent, burger was filling and my partners lamb chops are the best she's had in the country. We shall definitely be visiting again. Our new favourite dining spot in Kemang.

“Who knew?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Went here today for lunch with a friend, pleasantly surprised! My friend had the Largo Burger, looked scrummy and I had the steamed chicken with potato gratin, vegetables, and stuffed tomato, very good. We shared a bottle of Jacobs Creek white wine and the whole experience was enough to say we will be back. Very attentive staff! Only downside is I would put the smoking upstairs and the non smoking downstairs, but that's just me!

“Excellent in simplicity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

No non sense fancy nouvelle cuisine here. Just well excecuted simple hearthy meals done with a french twist . Had the tenderloin and it was cooked to tee and my partner had the burger it was tasty and juicy. And both portions are huge.
As they said " the simple things in life are often the best " and Largo has proven it.
Though the live jazz band wasn't my thing.

“Best Burger In Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Came here a couple of times, and each time came home a satisfied customer!

The Largo Burger is to die for! Super thick patty with wholemeal buns, mozarella AND edam melted on top of the patty, home-made fries, and it comes with this cute little bottle of spiced olive oil that, surprisingly, was so much better than putting chilli sauce on my meal.

I also had the Sjuman's Dory, pan fried dory fish, nice and crispy on the outside and very tender on the inside. It came with Potato au Gratin, also best in town, that was not too creamy and soggy like the ones I've had in most places.

The Fondant au Chocolate was a dark, rich, gooey perfection on a plate! I would seriously order more if it didn't take 15 minutes to prepare.

Largo is a bit on the expensive side, but with the ginormous portion they give, it was well worth every cent.

“Nothing Special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Dinner at Largo started with us being blasted by the band setting up. Food was just OK, although it really is not acceptable that lettuce leave that are already bruised brown & black are included in a salad....not one leaf but several.
Won't be returning.
