For seven+ years I've enjoyed Huize-Trivelli's Dutch-Indo cuisine and ambience. It's moved twice but all three locations have been in Jakarta's Tanah Abang area. Family photos and furnishings from the 1910s to the early 1960s decorate the fan-cooled interior while Dutch-Indo recordings of similar vintage fill the airwaves. Simple menus and old-photo place mats are used for breakfast, lunch, or... More

This restaurant (according to the staff) was only founded 7 years ago, but the owner set it up with very thick Old Dutch ambiance, with a lot of photos about old Jakarta (Batavia) and Indonesia during the Dutch occupation. The food was decent, many of which has strong Dutch influence, but the ambiance was good, and it brings people to... More

The interior and atmosphere was well arranged. It definitely reminded me of being Indonesian. We ordered ayam rempah (rice and side dishes included), bistik lidah, poffertjes, and kopi tubruk. I loved that the taste was homy and reminded me of my childhood. I won't go here on a daily basis, well... Because the price wasn't too friendly. However, I'd recommend... More

Huize Trivelli preserves an almost lost culinary tradition. It offers what the upperclass Indonesians used to eat during the Colonial era. It is a Dutch-Indonesian fusion culinary arts. The food is wholesome because they use fresh ingredient and slow cook the meat.

It is located inside a beautiful Dutch-era colonial house built in 1939. I really like the interior, reminds me of my Grandparents house :-) Unfortunately not so many choices for a vegetarian. I ordered the Fried Rice without Chicken (Nasi Goreng Tong Tong). My friend loves the Black Pepper Steak, she always order this! Service was excellent!
