I asked what the most favorite flavor, they said all of them. I dont eat main course so i dont know its taste. Maybe... More

The restaurant has been around for 80 years. The interior is the dutch colonial interior. The menu has remained unchanged since the shop opened. The food itself isnt that good. Expensive. Waiters cant smile.

Read from the tripadvisor review and went to take dinner at there. The pork steak is so far ok. The cake is just normal. Enjoy the coffee and sitting at there to feel and going back to the old days.

The restaurant just celebrated 80th birthday. High ceiling and a large dining hall remind us the Dutch colonial era in Indonesia. This long-history restaurant has an unique atmosphere and the old waiter smiled us all the time... I must have taken a photo of him !! The steak with mushroom sauce is decent taste which may take you back to... More

I was recommended by a friend to visit this oldest restaurant. It is located at Semarang Old Town. It serves variety of popular local food such as Fried Rice! fried Noodle! sop Buntut, Gadogado and many others. The food taste was not bad. The special of this restaurant is its old and classical building. The ambience was very nice.

An old colonial style restaurant, with authentic colonial dishes. Never get bored and disappointed with everything I ordered. Not only dishes, they have an authentic colonial ice cream and cookies.

I had my doubts if this place would deliver but i am very glad it did. First tasted food from Toko Oen at the food bazar in chinatown, some pastries, and they were very good. After a couple of days we went to restaurant and had lunch, and I was surprisingly satisfied. Ham fried rice and pecel, classic indo tastes... More
