Description: Café Aras is een nieuw restaurant in de hoofdstraat van Rantepao. De eigenaar, Aras (arasparura@yahoo.com) is tevens een soort hoofd van de gidsen in de stad en handelt in antiek. Het restaurant is mooi ingericht met veel antieke versieringen aan de muren.Op de kaart staan zowel Indonesische (inclusief Toraja) gerechten als Westerse gerechten (steaks, pasta, pizza). Wij hebben er twee maal heerlijk gegeten, zijn ook Australiërs tegen gekomen die dolenthousiast waren over de steaks, maar ook het Indonesische eten was erg lekker.Ik had ook de indruk dat er veel gasten waren die na één bezoek vrijwel elke dag dat ze in Rantepao zijn daar eten.Is zeer zeker een vermelding waard. Iets duurder restaurant, maar zeker het beste waar ik in Rantepao gegeten heb.

Very nice place, which is not so usual in Indonesia, the restaurant is also an art gallery. Therefore this is almost full of foreigners (maybe also because of wifi...). However the food is good and affordable, including simple tomato salad and torajan cuisine.

This place is trendy. It has wi fi which only works near the desk - not upstairs. The food is OK but more costly than better quality food nearby.

We ate here for 3 nights because it was clean, good decorations, good service and friendly atmosphere. Food was pretty bland and average but by this stage some western food was a good break from rice- even if the pizza had ketchup tomato sauce as a base and canned tuna on it!

This place is an oasis! Great layout, open yet cozy, two floors, four separate seating areas including a permanent front terrace that New Yorkers would love. Gorgeous artwork on the wall, some of it for sale. Everyone there is exceedingly friendly, including the guests. My friend borrowed a guitar from a busker who strolled by and was playing some mellow Eric Clapton. When he stopped, a French man at the neighboring table leaned over and said, "Why did you stop?"
The food is excellent. I would recommend whatever they have on special. I had pork and potatoes with orange sauce that was terrific.
Prices are very reasonable, and the service is efficient without being intrusive.
Lots of tourists but also many locals so a good mix that's always lively and fun.
