“reasonably good”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

very friendly staff, english spoken by everone, knowledgeable about the local food. nice setting on the top floor with a pleasant breeze in the evening, free wifi. the food itself, however, pretty average and rather bland - seemed kind of ok, until I tried other places, where I got to experience the real, strong flavours; relatively small portions, main dish brought on the table before appetizers, etc... ate there three times, as it was close to my hotel, would otherwise revisit other places

i ate sate lilit and nasi goreng when i came there with my aunt for a late lunch. the sate lilit tasted goooood! well yes the menu was a bit pricy compare to other local eatery in Yogya, but worth enough. for me, the food here is a good escape from Yogya's common sweet taste food choices. the cozy friendly ambience there was nice :)

don't forget to drop by their bakery on the shop next to the restaurant. lovely homemade bread ♥

Thank mialmira

“Tasty, friendly and fun”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I ate here three times over a four day trip. I couldn't stay away! The restaurant has a relaxed friendly vibe, an excellent menu with a big range of food and drink, free wi-fi and some of the nicest staff around.

The prices are really reasonable, especially for the service and quality you receive - roughly 20,000 Rupiah for a cold drink (try the chocolate milkshake) and 25,000-60,000 for a meal. There is a good selection of vegetarian options and special Indonesian meals that rotate daily. I tried the vegetable salad with goats' cheese, vegetarian burger and mackerel with lime butter. I highly recommend the fish. The accompanying chips and mayo are also delicious.

All taxi drivers know this place so it's very easy to get to. Check out their Fairtrade shop next door, tours, yoga classes at 9am and 6pm (book the day before) and the bakery (which makes excellent chocolate cake).

“Good good good food”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Loved the food... In case you are tired of Indonesian cooking this place is a must visit. They also conduct walks and tours of the village and food..
Must do and it is highly suggested by the locals.

“had a lovely meal”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

I had a lovely meal here on the recommendation of a couple I met while on a tour. This restaurant taught me to fall in love with tempeh while in INdonesia. While perhaps a bit more expensive than other places in Yogya, it is still dirt cheap compared with Western prices, and certainly cheaper than other places I ate. Do check out the attached gift shop for locally produced handicrafts.
