We were very surprised to find an autentic Indonesian restaurant in Ferragudo. The food is excellent, prepared by an Indonesian chef. We had Rijsttafel and it was plenty of tasty dishes.
The English/Scottish couple who owned the restaurant were very friendly and guided us trough the menu.
The chef was even flexible and made chocolate sauce so the kids could drawn the Indonesian pancakes as they were used to.

I was very surprised to find this fantastic bar and restaurant . It was nice to find a refreshing change from the norm. Not having had Indonesian cuisine before we decided to give it a go. We went into the bar where we could try taster dishes whilst sipping cocktails. The bar area is lovely and relaxing and is run by John. Who mixes a good cocktail. The food was lovely so we booked a return trip the following eve,
.On our return we were greeted by Chrissie who runs the restaurant to an impeccable standard. The food was lovely. They offer a children's menu as well so they were happy aswell. Chrissie also produced some toys for the children to play with so we had a nice relaxing meal without the little ones getting fed up.
The whole experience was very enjoyable and we are looking forward for our next visit.

Thank you John and Chrissie.

This resteraunt is well run, and is one of Ferragudo's little gems. The food is authentic and tasty, with a lot of choice. John runs the bar to create a welcoming evening's atmosphere, Chrissy maintains the resteraunt area, which is equally welcoming as well as beautifully decorated.

I had never tried Indonesian food before, so on looking through the Menu, John gave us friendly and helpful advice on the range of dishes, asking what our preferred level of spice was, and whether we liked creamy or tangy curries. I came to a well-informed decision, and the food was really delicious!

The menu is informative, offering different languages, and even highlighting which dishes are popular with children because of their mild taste, which I imagine would be really useful for a family meal out.

Tempo also offer cocktails and tapas, so you can try an evening in the well-decorated, homely lounge area instead, sample the Indonesian food, and come back for a meal later on in your holiday if you decide that Indonesian cuisine is your thing!

Overall, a lovely little place with character accompanied with a welcoming atmostphere and great food.

Highly Recommended and worth a visit!

Very well run restaurant hosted by John & Chrissie. John looks after the bar area which is excellant for a pre dinner drink or a light snack with a differance. Chrissie runs the spotlessly clean restaurant which has been tastefully decorated. The food is delightfull and makes a nice change from the usual Chinese/Indian alternative. Nicely blended of spices which you can choose from mild to very hot. Do try the mini rice table if you are not sure. You will go again!

Food was excellent. The vegetarian rice table was very tasty. A little too spicy for the kids but they still enjoyed it. Service is very friendly.
