Always happy to go there, it is easy to spend time enjoying the views while the food is being prepared and the people there are very friendly. I also rented a mootorbike there for a good price.

Eaten there maybe 6 times, always happy with the food.

This place is getting better and better. The view over the lake at lunchtime is great. Try the mie or nasi goreng with sate. The sauce is wonderful. They make a very nice tempe goreng. And all the currys are great with lots of fresh vegetables. I always keep coming back to this place. They can also cook for big parties. Once I was there with a group of 20 having a buffet. It was great. We had a Batakgroup singing for us. An expierience nver to forget!

Decided to try this place as Jenny's was full. Thoroughly enjoyed every single dish with no regrets. You must order their BBQ fish and BBQ pork. For drinks, do try their Avocado Juice which is actually more like a shake. Very satisfying.

This place is totally under rated! Their food is awesome. I had Jenny's the next night and frankly Orari's was a much better choice. Their food has a more local touch. Give it a try!

We discovered this restaurant after going to Jenny's next door. We went one night and enjoyed the food so much we went back for lunch. We were a party of 6 and shared about 8 to 10 dishes on each occasion, all very good. I can't remember the indonesian names but we had fish, chicken and beef as well as vegetables. The variety was sufficient to please all six, including those who do not like their food too spicy. Overall the food was better than that of the Lonely Planet promoted Jenny's next door, which incidentally has good food especially the grilled fish, their specialty, but Orari's is just better. Orari is also right on the water and if you sit at the end you get views out over the lake or you can go downstairs and go to the water's edge, but there is no outside eating. Jenny's by contrast is set back some way from the lake and for the most part you look out onto the road. Orari is also more spacious than Jenny's. Price wise they are comparable. I'm not sure what the usual serving size is as we shared the meal, but we certainly had more than we could eat and I'm a big eater. The speed with which the meal was delivered was fine and service was good when we asjked for more drinks, serviettes etc. I'd recommend this restaurant.
