“Spontaneous 6 coarse meal with wine pairing”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We decided to give our driver the night off and walk to a local restaurant 250m from our posh apartment. Spontaneously coming across a delightful white pillared residence turned restaurant that oozed overindulgence. The interior-designed French fantasy included silver service and very good wait staff. The powder room! The detail. Gilt furniture. The art. Oh did I mention the food? The first three courses came out together like a set of small sculptures created with great skill. The Waygu beef tartare looked like a mini icecream, horseradish cream on top. The cone waffle sat in a little glass filled with wild rice. The flavour was devine with strong elements of lemon. I regressed as my child tried to tear the restaurant apart. So glad we had a room to ourselves. Kaffir lime flavoured crustaceans sitting on top of an amazing broth in a small coffee cup. Foie gras served on top of a freshly made pasta coated scallop. Then Venison and parsnip cream, Chocolate soufflé and the other dish hmmm I wish I could remember.
The French, Australian and German wines, so well paired it was like adam and eve eating from the forbidden fruit. The ying to my yang. I asked the waiters to stop but they kept bringing out more courses like a Napolean army. The Chef Renaud Le Rasle shared his soul with us through his food that night; his masterpieces a tribute to French cuisine.

“An establishment for the nouveau riche.”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Food was decent, nothing to go crazy about. Flaws visible in the nouveau riche decor. Slightly overpriced.

“Perfect Candle Light Dinner”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

It was someone's house and somehow it became a great restaurant. You wouldn't know it's a restaurant from the outside. We went there for special occasion. They took reservation with your full name. When we came in, it does not feel like we entered a restaurant, it felt like you entered someone's house to attend dinner invitation. They greet us with a warm welcome and elegance. Decorations and furnitures were classy, if you count grand piano and pool view, it was really romantic. Still can't believe place like this exist in the heart of Jakarta. We had three course meals, taste was delightful and marvellous presentation. We brought our own wine and charged for corkage. During our meals there are some teenagers with t-shirt walking around and taking photo, in this kind of restaurant, wearing casuals is quite inappropriate. Nonetheless, Servers has good food knowledge and service was superb. Therefore, teenagers back then wasn't really a matter for us. We got a thank you gift, box of macaroons as we head out. Overall, we had an exceptional dining experience here and definitely will come again.

“Fancy decor with great food”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Elegant decor and delicious food. No complain! The restaurant venue was a house before. So, when we entered into the restaurant, we seemed to visit someone's home in England. The interior design is a mixture of colonial and indian styles. The base colour is white. With a pool besides the dining area, what a romantic and fansy restaurant it is!
