There were plenty lobsters for order and is part of the brunch (though I couldn't try any due to allergies). The staff are very courteous and friendly and would gladly help or assist... More

Not cheap if you drink alcohol, but nevertheless still great value with genuine free flow of champagne, cocktails and wine. For no alcohol it's a bargain (lobster, crab, kobe beef, foie gras etc) and if you have an SPG card (which they gave me last time I was there) you get 25% off the no alcohol brunch. The fresh and...

This place may do other types of food but the head chef is nexican and it is simply the best mexican restaurant in jakarta. Unlike crappy restaurants like hacienda, this place mkes its own corn tortillas from masa and uses ancho, guahillo and chipotle chillies and achiote (all imported). The set dinner is unbelievable value at less than 200k for... More

During one of short visits to Jakarta I went to this restaraunt in error thinking it was another place. But it was nice on the 7 th floor and overlooking Jakarta skyline with an al fresco space too. It has an international buffet and a Mexican menu which was really quite nice. Recommended.

How about the food? Maybe bevause I came there for the breakfasting, then it's not tasted so special for me. But the ambiance, the place is magnificent.
