I asked for strawberry tea and got strawberry juice with no explanation. Then was told they were out of strawberry tea. My mother in law ordered mashed potatoes and got French fries. The crab meat soup was really fishy and tasted funny. I ordered the ribeye it was tough and over cooked. Won't be coming back.

The atmosphere is friendly and good for family, business, or friends. The menu has enough choice for everyone. A specialty is the chicken steak.

Been the 4th time to Boncafe and I order the usual. Grateful that the flaming salmon steak is as good as I remember. I haven't found its match in Jakarta. I hope I will, cause going back and forth to Surabaya to satisfied my craving on salmon steak just won't make sense. Haha.

Came here as recommended by local business partner. Interestingly, their specialty are well done steak. Perhaps, Indonesian can appreciate such steak. But for a meat foodie like me, this is just 101% absurd and disrespectful! No - No!

That you'll be here if you're locals, this restaurant establish since 1977 and will be Surabaya's favorit steak house. Even for me, it's a good taste. Great place (every location is upgrading), nice and hommey interior. The food is good, price is fair range 30-100K Recommended for outsider!!
