The pastries is very delicious and very pretty, too. Eventhough it is pretty expensive, but we get what we pay for. The drawback is that the staff are somewhat arrogant; however they still manage to give professional service compared to a five-star hotel establishment.

What a cool spot for lunch/brunch. They recently moved house the front of the Papillion building and now have a modern and luxurious interior with grays, whites en white orchids.
We enjoyed brunch on the comfortable grey loveseats with a huge table in the middle where my son could play with his cars.

Being Dutch we had the white toast with 'kroketten': a traditional Dutch dish made of ragout of meat and a crispy outside made of breadcrumbs (cylinder shape), Dutch 'bitterballen' which is about the same as the kroketten but in ball-shape and served with mustard accompanied by a delicious veggie salad and glass of white wine.
I wish we had some more time for dessert as all the cakes and cookies looked fantastic. (we could have done take-away too of some traditional Dutch cakes & cookies but I forgot. I will have to return!

Lovely and attentive staff as well

For a restaurant/patisserie with a high callibre (especially with a premium price) like huize van welly, you would expect impeccable service. Although the quality of their products is always of the highest standard, but I repeatedly let down by the service. If not handled by rude patrons, the one time i met a friendly one, it took ages to handle my order. It took over 20 minutes for a scoop of chocolate sorbet!!!

If only their chocolate sorbet and entrements are not life-changing-ly good, i would never set food in this place again. I would only pray there are more options available of the same standard in Jakarta (with a better service)

If you want to have an excellent 'western' dish in a stylish environment... Huize Van Wely is THE place!!

I use to have dinner with them when in Jakarta.... Excellent food, menu... and wine choice!
The service is very professional as you may expect in this sort of establishment. Everything is flown in from Holland... even the staff!!!

Huize Van Wely is also in Holland very famous and exclusive if it comes to chocolates and cakes... (Noordwijk aan Zee), but you can have the same quality as you get it in Holland...

Enough place to park you car, just in front of the building. Very nice athmospfere in a very nice, stylish environment. Feeling like in a upper-class western restaurant but than in Jakarta...!!

Very good to have buss. dinners or even romantic dinners!?!? From starter till dessert and coffee etc. all of excellent quality... but as I wrote before...so is the check you get at the end... (regarding to other rest. in Indonesia) but, for me... every single IDR worth!!

No doubt Huize Van Wely can offer excellent desserts. The place has been my favourite (and now my friends') since it was first opened. To me, they are comparable to other exclusive and magnificent sweets houses in other countries.

However, exclusive foods must also be accompanied by excellent services regardless who guests are. It is rather dissappointing when young guests like my friends and I are not being treated as equally as other mature, big purcasher guests. It is, after all, a place for desserts and relaxing beverages.

With 21% tax and service charge one guest is paying, all guest is allowed to receive the same treatment as others.
