We had diner there while staying in Rantepao. Service is very quick and food is excellent. Don't miss the taramillo juice, the buffalo steak and the pancakes. Good prices. I recommend 100%.

We went to both Aras Cafes and enjoyed the older/smaller one, Aras 1, much more. Menu is the same, but the service is better and so is the atmosphere. Food is nice - decent pizza! And good wifi.

We went yesterday and today to have dinner and lunch to Aras. The service was a little bit slow and the service correct. The food was not surprising. The 2 juices we had were really watery and not really tasty and the dishes we had...More

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

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.
