The restaurant is very nice: there are a lot of different rooms, big, small, short and tall. Some of the dining rooms are also a sort of museum and we suggest you to take a walk across as many rooms as possible. The food is good, but a little bit confused. The menu is endless and you will need some... More

My first time in Indonesia. Our hotel staff recommended this restaurant. So glad we tried it. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Would definitely return. If you're in Jakarta you should visit for sure.

I've decided to visit Lara based on a Lonely Planet recommendation since I was staying in a hotel near by. Ambiance is Fascinating and service is good. Food varies from delicious to mediocre. I can recommend the place, it is worth visiting, but you can taste more authentic and cheaper Indonesian food in less posh places in Jakarta.

This is a truly lovely restaurant. If you want ambience, definitely a place to go. Food varies. Some dishes are very good -- the sate lilit Gianyar, for example. Fish and shrimp mostly tend to be mushy and not very fresh tasting. The coconut ice cream is delicious.

Lara has it all if you want to show your guest, friends, colleagues or family. It is a old local restaurant with a beautiful arrangement inside if you want to see some old pictures of Indonesia. Went there for a business dinner and we let the waiter guiding us through the various possibilities. Take the Sate boat as you will... More

In our recent visit to Jakarta for business, we had our best meal at this restaurant. After reading some reviews we decided to try it out. Uber dropped us at this restaurant, decoration and ambiance were really nice and unique, customer service was attentive at all times. We started with some delicious shrimp balls with sweet chilli sauce, great choice!... More

This place is one of the Tugu's chain of restaurants which offers good "Peranakan" foods. We ordered a good amount of food from the menu--an the highlights were: Ayam Masak Cabe Hijau (awesome and spicy), Nasi Bakar Ayam (very smoky and tasty), Pepesan Jamur, Sate Ayam Warok and Sate Daging Manis--both are tender. The place was designed very interestingly--with historic... More
