“Definitely too expensive for what you get....”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

My friends and myself decided spontaneously to go for dinner to il Mare after having read the comments in Tripadvisor. Lets remark that we like and are willing to spend good money for good food.
First of all, comparing to plenty of good restaurants in Jakarta, the welcome from the stuff was just polite, but not more. We chose different kind of menus (nothing special, just typical Italian food) and some drinks (water and one glass of wine). Again the stuff was just polite, but we missed the Indonesian charm we were used to in the meantime, after two weeks Indonesia.
The food was, against our expectations based on Tripadvisors reviews, not really special. I would even say average (and I am used to eat in very good Italian restaurants in Europe). One of my friends food was not well cooked. We asked to cook it again and they made it without objection. The second time it was ok.
After all we received the bill which was comparing to what we eat and drink quite high. In my opinion a simple excuse or a free coffee for the not well cooked food were appropriate, but nobody said something, not even when we left the restaurant. What kind of restaurant is that?
Summary: Comparing to the plenty of other good and expensive restaurants in Jakarta it was a disappointing experience, too expensive for what you get (service and food).

Went for a dinner. The service was good and the ambiance was ok ...but the food we ordered were too expensive to what we've got. I ordered "sphagetti de mare" and what i got was " too al dente" in other words uncooked sphagetti that i could hardly bite it and i waited for another couple of minutes to have at last my dinner. Totally, was a Disappointment. Never again!

“Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Sunday Brunch at Il Mare is great. The price includes free-flow wine and/or beer which makes it reasonable value for money in this expensive city. The food is exciting, and very varied. Highly recommended!

“Best meal so far in Jakarta”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

I have been in Jakarta for eight months and our dinner last Saturday at Il Mare was the best restaurant meal we've had so far. The service was medocre as usual in Jakarta, which is why four stars instead of five, although remarkably our food all arrived at the same time which hardly ever happens here. As for the food, recommend the grilled tuna, grilled calimari and pasta ameritriciana.
