“Indonesian Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Restaurante Indonesia is a very lovely and cosy restaurant tucked away on a quiet street of Albir's tourist resort, just a minute walk from the hubbub of the main street and five minutes walk from the beach. The furnishings, the decor and the hospitality tells you a story of what Indonesian cuisine is all about.: it's about simplicity with bold flavours that makes you want to come back for more.

Satays on skewers with peanut sauce are the most popular and well known Indonesian dish in case you haven't tried or heard of Indonesian delights yet. But that is nothing compared to rest of the extensive menu Restaurante Indonesia have to offer. If you are unsure of what to order, there is a beautiful dish I would recommend which is Nasi Rames - it is a rice dish accompannied by different side dishes of vegetables, garnishes and meats like beef, chicken or lamb in beautiful spicy, flavoursome sauces. It definately takes your taste bud on a tour of Indonesian's flavours as you sample the different dishes. In other words, it's like having a "menu degustation" on one plate.

Then there's Ayam Opor which is Chicken in coconut sauce which has slight similarity to an Indian curry. It tastes lighter and milder than curry but it is aromatic and bursting with flavours that can only come from authentic Indonesian cooking.

There's a lot of different dishes to choose from whether you love your meat, seafood or you're simply a vegetarian. But one thing for sure, you will definately enjoy the taste of Indonesia's colourful dishes and it's a promise you will not be disappointed. If you're still unsure, there's always Lona, the owner of the joint, who will guide you and recommend you dishes that will best suit your taste bud.

If you happen to come to Albir, you have to try Restaurante Indonesia. It's a must!

“Incredible food & atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

This is a GEM of a place to eat totally authentic Indonesian cuisine! Lona the owner takes great prode in explaining the menuto you, she tells you that she makes everything herself.
I have to say that the food is incredible, the flavours and presention is simply superb.
The setting is also so atmospheric, you actually feel that you could be in Indonesia. we have tried several of the dishes and all are unique in flavour and simple delicious! You can taste the spices and flavours that transport you back to Indonesia......FAB!

If you like cuising then tell all your freinds about this place, its a place that we will now add to our list of favourites.

Lona will make you feel so welcome and the whole night was an experience.
