Stopped there to have a break from Malioboro street, but then kind of wish I didn't. The food was not bad, but boring and the drinks were kind of weird. Apparently kiwi beer is not a scented fruit beer, but literally a jug of beer with a kiwi crushed in it.
I really wanted to like the place but there was something missing and i couldn't quite relax and feel the vibe. I left with a feeling that it's way too foreign and expat and would be more suitable for people who live in Indonesia rather than for travelers who are there for a week and want to explore and see something more special.

We enjoyed a few nice cold beers from their good beer selection in the comfortable beer garden which was most enjoyable after walking the hectic streets for a few hours in the hot sun. It was also a good spot to sit out a passing thunderstorm. Mostly a foreign crowd and pretty quiet when we were there early evening but a nice spot that we were happy to have found.

It was a Sunday evening. We’d been walk all afternoon. I’d read a review and remembered the Oxen Free name and logo. So it was with some excitement that when we spotted its sign down a side street of Malioboro we seized the moment and went in for a beer and meal. There’s really nothing unique about this place except it is in the perfect place for checking out from the bustle of Jogja’s main shopping street and it has its own little shop. Food is ok and the beer is cold. I’d return.

We came here several times during our stay. Though maybe slightly geared more towards tourists, the food is great! Kindof a fusion of indonesian and western food. The chili crusted garlic shrimp were amazing! Its a slightly more expensive than some other places, but still reasonable and well worth it. I really enjoyed the flavored beers, as well. Cute decor and friendly owner. Definitely recommend!

This is a very cool and relaxing beer garden. I love the open air concept with a lovely garden and really nice music being played in the background. It is a gathering place for the locals, international students and also for the tourists. This place is pretty packed and people here socialize and network a lot. The drink menu is extensive and the wifi connectivity is good. On top of that, the staff are very friendly and efficient too. This is one of my favourite spots in Malioboro.
