This place is a real Oasis from Malioboro street. The ambiance is chill and cosy. The beer is ice cold. The snacks are great. I recommend the Fried tempeh. And the crew is cool and Very friendly. So... grab a beer at Oxen Free!!

Maybe this place is good for young people in the evening however at lunch time it was empty, dirty and unkempt. Not sure we would have wanted to eat here.WE walked in (the only people) walked around and then left.

Kevan, unfortunately you visited in the middle of the fasting of month of Ramadan when we are, yes, quiet during the days. Thanks for paying us a visit all the same. Best.

Found this place off of Malioboro. It was a slow night, quiet and dark in the back with party music playing in the background. Its a good place to relax and get away from the busy city. Food wise is pretty good as well. My...More
