When we arrived around 5.30 pm, there were already several customers having their meals and most of them were expatriates. I was quite surprised that with the hot climate in Jakarta this Bistro has no air-conditioner at all.

The Roast Chicken is my favorite dish here, but we had to wait for 1 1/2 hours until the Roast Chicken was ready out of the grill. Anyway, it was worth it ;) Later on, I was informed that in case, we don't want to wait for the Roast Chicken, we can pre-order it by phone first.
Garlic Bread - Rp. 19.500
Seriously this garlic bread tasted so delicious! It's crispy but also fluffy and moist from the garlic butter. I really enjoyed every bite of it.
Streaky Bacon - Rp. 31.500
Another great appetizer but for sure, we all had to totally ignore the cholesterol from each layer bacon that we indulged! The 6 rashers of the fried streaky bacon were so yummy - crispy and as for the fat, I could feel it melted nicely in my mouth.
Potato Wedges - Rp. 16.000
The fried spicy potato wedges were quite decent. Nothing really to shout about but yes, the plate got empty fast :)
Chefs Salad - Rp. 25.500
A large bowl of salad consisted of tomato, radish, carrots, cucumber, sweet corn (but lack of lettuce because the restaurant was out of lettuce) sprinkled with smoked chicken strips and cheddar cheese, plus Italian dressing.
Chicken Cordon Bleu - Rp. 41.500
My colleague love this tender boneless chicken breast filled inside with cheese and ham.
Chicken Curry - Rp. 41.500
Another colleague ordered this chicken curry. According to him, the taste was a bit bland compared to Indian curry.
Black Pepper Beef - Rp. 48.500
Beef cooked with onion and paprika in Chinese black pepper gravy, sprinkled with sesame seeds.
served with rice.
Roast Chicken - Rp. 59.500
As I can remember, this Roast Chicken is one of the most succulent Roast Chickens that I've eaten. The meat was so tender, juicy and really well flavored.
Red Wine Rp. 46.000/glass
Hot Tea - bottomless Rp. 8.500/cup
Ice Tea Rp. 7.500/glass
(currency: 1 USD = Rp. 9.000)
No desserts at all because we were all so stuffed with the food. Each of us were delightful satisfied with the food especially the Roast Chicken. Well, I definitely will come again to this bistro and I think it will be very soon! ;)
