As we were overseas guests, I emailed to book a table for 11 people and also confirmed the menu prior to our dinner on 29th April. The replies to our emails were fast and prompt. We were given a perfect table and the ambience was cosy. We enjoyed our dinner course after course and were amazed with the standard of... More

If you like restaurants with character, you'll love this place. The main room was decorated so richly with a vibrant colour scheme and some impressive wooden and stone sculpture. We were seated in a less interesting, more brightly lit area but at least it meant we could see our food. The food was incredibly tasty. We ordered about 4-5 dishes... More

You stand outside this place and feel that it can't possibly be a restaurant. Once inside, it is like an Aladdin's cave with different rooms crammed full of treasures. The wine list was excellent and, rare for Jakarta, reasonably priced. The corncake starters were to die for, the chicken satay succulent and beautifully presented with a 'mini' barbeque at your...

The restaurant is very nice: there are a lot of different rooms, big, small, short and tall. Some of the dining rooms are also a sort of museum and we suggest you to take a walk across as many rooms as possible. The food is good, but a little bit confused. The menu is endless and you will need some... More

My first time in Indonesia. Our hotel staff recommended this restaurant. So glad we tried it. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Would definitely return. If you're in Jakarta you should visit for sure.

took my friend from university days and his wife (they got married recently) for some celebration. Interior and many different rooms can attract especially foreign guests. You can go through really thick food menu and enjoy election but this may be a bit difficult for beginners. better ask staff in case of any question. wine list can go from reasonable... More

I've decided to visit Lara based on a Lonely Planet recommendation since I was staying in a hotel near by. Ambiance is Fascinating and service is good. Food varies from delicious to mediocre. I can recommend the place, it is worth visiting, but you can taste more authentic and cheaper Indonesian food in less posh places in Jakarta.

This is a truly lovely restaurant. If you want ambience, definitely a place to go. Food varies. Some dishes are very good -- the sate lilit Gianyar, for example. Fish and shrimp mostly tend to be mushy and not very fresh tasting. The coconut ice cream is delicious.
