Idyllic Italian eatery located in the opulent Hotel Mulia. Best value is at Sunday brunch. Fill up on antipasto, pasta and at least one of the many mains on offer.

On the first evening at Il Marie (and I was jet-lagged and somewhat irritable as a result) I found some of the service fussy and over-attentive (needlesslly refilling one's glass of water, for instance). I mentioned this, and after that the level of attentive service...was just right. The atmosphere is relaxed there, and the staff professional but also very friendly. The food is quite magnificent - a must in Jakarta for lovers of Italian food .More

After its 'renovation' I returned to my favorite Sunday brunch venue il Mare in hotel Mulia with trepidation. The food and service remains absolute top notch. Though sadly since il Mare had its guts ripped out it has lost its charisma, uniqueness and charm. The...'golden tree' occupying the central circular bar can only be described as pure 'chichi' i.e.pretentious and way overelaborate in its refinement. The hors d’œuvre displayed below this tree are permanently plunged into darkness. There are no lights above the displayed food, only the general restaurant ambient lighting. Perhaps the interior designer wanted to encourage echo-location as a way to find food. I used the flashlight feature on my cellphone to see what was hiding there. The cheese selection was excellent but the accompanying bread was not only limited (compared to il Mare 'classic') but on the other side of the room! My personal favorite was the superb mushroom ravioli. Though prices are high the coffee on offer was unappealing. I expected more, especially as Italy is famous for its coffee. Style wise I believe the interior of the 'renovated ' il Mare is perhaps now more suitable for Millennials. I hope the expat's that so often filled the 'Classic' il Mare restaurant find a new fun, quirky alternative restaurant that can fill the Sunday Brunch void and perhaps remember that good Italian coffee is world famous, so why not serve it ?More

Can you beat your own records? Yes you can, Mulia Senayan always does. With Il Mare's newly renovated premises, they really outdo everything. The new looks of Il Mare reminds us of a high-end Monegasque restaurant, or one you can find along the Fifth Avenue...in NYC. It's modern and luxurious, elegant to the very last details. The Sunday Brunch is even more excellent as it was before. It's just spectacular. If there is one restaurant in Jakarta that should have a Michelin star, this should be Il Mare.More

Our group of 4 decided to try the restaurant because the hotel just finished renovating and revamping. The Hotel Mulia is a beautiful 5 star hotel. We expected a certain level of care with service and food at the 5 star restaurant. We certainly paid...a 5 star price. The food was good, but the service could be better. The service was slow even though we were the only group in the restaurant for a while. Even when others came, it wasn't even half full. When a second group came in, the staff seated them right beside us at the next table which was weird. They could have sat them anywhere else. Our white wine was warm, our orders mixed up, and our coffees did not come with our dessert as requested. For the price we paid, it was disappointing. My husband ordered prime rib and they were supposed to show him the cut so he could choose his meat before it was cooked. He asked the staff two times about it. Instead, they brought him 1kg already cooked and told him he had to take it. So we took it home. That was not the end of the world, but again, disappointing. The manager came over after that and apologized. The staff were friendly but a little out of their depth. I did enjoy my homemade pasta.More
