我們一行四人來到位於plaza Indonesia的Baron Bistro,分別點了Baron Burger/Special Baron Burger/pasta/sandwich,四人所享用的餐點都覺得很美味,尤其漢堡餐點所附的薯條,是我在雅加達吃過最好吃的薯條之一,搭配店家的美乃滋醬,讓我們都讚不絕口,下次如有機會來到市區,可以再來是試試別的餐點!

This bistro has an interesting character, it is located right in the middle of a mall corridor, like in an aquarium, a narrow interior but with a classic European nuance.  This setting makes me feel like I was in France. Ordered their house red wine by glsss, an Australian  Richland Merlot, quite fresh and enlightening. My main course was Poulet... More

Bistrot Baron is a so-called French brasserie, offering so-called fine French food, in a so-called French atmosphere. Well, I would say everything about Bistro Baron is really overrated. Let's start with the location : in the lobby of a luxury mall... how could it be less unpersonal than that ? Its location just kills the charm this restaurant could have... More

Nice restaurant with classical French food. The quality of the food is good. Try the steak frites (medium).

We reside in Jakarta and at time we survey different restaurants in the city. That day we went to Bistro Baron for lunch as we did not have French food for a while. My wife ordered a vol au vent for first course and the duck confit as main course, all well presented and tasty she mentioned (but she would... More

Aside from the new smoking room, there wasn't much change. My husband noted though that the new room was against the local regulation. It was fully enclosed. Several tables near the room can definitely smell the smoke. Let's talk about the food. We ordered a salmon dish (with green sauce) and two duck confit. The fish was baked perfectly but... More

First time we went back since the reopening and maybe the last. The welcome bread wasn't fresh, the lobster bisque was way too salty, my steak wasn't as good as before.... It used to be a good place for lunch or dinner. Hope it's just an "accident"

We have been there for the re-opening and i must say I was impressed with the food's quality. All our dishes tasty and in a generous portion. I am not a fan to eat in a mall but if you are in plaza Indonesia, it won't be a mistake to go there. I will be back

Maybe we caught them on a bad day, but the lunch service was very slow and unattentive. Food was better than average for a French restaurant in Jakarta but not worth going out of your way for. Waiting almost an hour for it was definitely an experience that we shall not repeat.

I am a regular at Bistro Baron - regular in that I eat here whenever I am in the city and Plaza Indonesia. Either an Eye Fillet or a Porterhouse Medium to Medium Rare with Gratin Dauphinois (commonly called Potato Bake) and you have the ingredients of an outstanding meal. Add to this a fine wine or a few cold... More
