Great food and a very nice performance of 2 guys called “the two of us”. The perfect place for an evening of drinks and great music. Overall a great atmosphere!

We came here several times during our stay. Though maybe slightly geared more towards tourists, the food is great! Kindof a fusion of indonesian and western food. The chili crusted garlic shrimp were amazing! Its a slightly more expensive than some other places, but still...More

This is a very cool and relaxing beer garden. I love the open air concept with a lovely garden and really nice music being played in the background. It is a gathering place for the locals, international students and also for the tourists. This place...More
