Great restaurant, very atmospheric but most of all, food is absolutely delicious. We initially did not want to visit it as the reviews were not great, saying its very touristy and not that great. Thankfully Tropical cafe was closed and we end up here and...More

The restaurant was recommended to us... and for good reason. The menu is varied and provided a good range of dishes for carnivores and vegans alike, The staff were helpful and friendly and the chefs were happy to personalise dishes to suit differing tastes too....More

An interesting venue with nice art pieces, paintings & wall hangings. The service was very good & they spoke English! The food was Indonesian with a big selection & a nice local beer on promotion!

Modern, but traditional design, centrally located with broad menu. Service could be slow, but worth the wait.

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.
