Historical place on the map of Medan, established in 1934. Today it still serves meals and sweets. We sat there for some sweets and a juice after visiting nearby Tjong a Fie mansion. We tried Java ice and morkop (both priced IDR 21 thousand). Both very good. Waiters wear old-style clothes so the ambience of the old times is in... More

It is always nice to have either dinner or lunch at this place. They keep maintaining the old fashioned decoration. Tasty food too. The most enjoyable moment is that they serve a nice bread and ice cream too. You should try and pay a visit.

Yo should go to this restaurant when you're in Medan. The most legendary restaurant in Medan city. Try the Bistik Lidah and also the Sorbet. They have free wifi also for you to do a meeting or write your blog. Clean and friendly for sure. I love it!

Every big city has their own signature restaurant and as well as Medan. It's like Ragusa in Jakarta or Zangrandi in Surabaya. People said that the bakery is really good, but today I jist dropped by for a second to get the fried banana. The taste is good, the banana is soft and the skin is very crunchy. I try... More

An old restaurant with a lot of food selection, some are back to the old recipe. I must say that they have the best Ice-coffee with milk. Oh an the calf-tongue steak is very good also.

Wow. Old Colonial/Dutch style place, massive ceilings, great vibe, mostly local. Old school wait-boys drift around, service outstanding, food quite good. Just a really great vibe. And it has beer, and the foods well priced.

The special thing is the building. It is an old building with the antique decoration. But the food is nothing special. The taste is only ok.

This place is the best to quench your thirst after exploring Jalan Kesawan and you need to go to a place where you can topple the sweat due to humidity. Ice Coffee and ice cream with peach is the best choice ever. Feeling "old" in this location is never wrong since this restaurant is one of the preserved locations in... More
