Throughout the Covid lockdown, my travel repertoire backdates to a time when I was not consciously recording our experiences, so apologies in advance for the unflattering photos. But I had a nice memory of a birthday dinner here back in 2015 and thought might be worth a share. We had just recently started getting into the groove of settling down in this region and realised that this was one of those Asian capitals must-try, fine dining on an uber-high floor with a view of the city. We had delicious lobster fettucini and lasagne and a bruschetta starter. Italian staples but still good enough to have left an impression. It probably started my love affair for fettucini. The service was also super – the chef came halfway to check on us which was a nice touch. It was quite reasonably priced too, not as astronomical as you may expect from some of these establishments.
Excuse these low-grade photos but do pop by their website for a better sense of what they offer here.
Jakarta is not everyone’s cup of tea obviously but my affection for it has very much to do with the people. I wouldn’t suggest dining at an Italian restaurant near Plaza Indonesia to sample an authentic flavour of the city, but if you’re feeling a bit fancy and are looking for Continental cuisine, then it’s the restaurant with some atmosphere and good food.
