Just across the road from Wisma Maria, we ate here a few times while staying in Rantepao. The food is good, the wifi is free and fast (main reason for coming here actually), staff friendly. Centre of town.

Mambo Restaurant is one of my favourite restaurant in Toraja. Almost all good taste. Unfortunately the last visit, they didn't have enough stock food to cook that we would like to order, empty fish and seafood stock.

The food is great, they cook it immidiately when guests are ordering. Thats why it takes little longer than usual. The price for 2 is around IDR 100 - 150K. Surrounded by city hall, hostels and market.

Stoped there for food. The waitress was adorable, the " Charcoal Burger" was amazing after a week of eating various street nasi/mie gorengs. They have an elaborate menu with lots of kinds of food and drinks/healthy cocktails.
