The food is good and conventional, but the place is really nice, with wood structure, and typically javanese carving. I could stay there for hours.

Huge restaurant with large tables. The food was nice, but all the staff went into hiding, so we couldn't order anything extra. Wouldn't take any of my cards either.

This restaurant should have a top rating on TripAdvisor. The food is extremely delicate and with a good choice of the great specialties of Surakarta (Solo). It is no wonder the place is also very popular with local Indonesians who really appreciate the central Java style with dishes made in the authentic Surakarta way. For western people the prices are... More

I went there twice in a month because it is great ! The buildings and deco look antique and really nice and relaxing/ The food is excellent, based on pecel, a hot spicy sauce with peanuts.

In a great setting you can choose from several traditional Indonesian dishes. Depending on what you pick you pay (not much). Nice setting and great food!

If you really want to taste something indonesian you have to go there. It's better to speak bahasa indonesia to order directly in the buffet but don't worry you can choose your meal with the menu!

I really enjoyed Pecel Solo. The traditional Javanese food is great. It is perfectly prepared and brings all the taste of Java. Traditional setting and very inexpensive. The atmosphere is incredible. I will say that locals tell me that only a foreigner would go to this place. I suppose most of the diners are in fact not from Indonesia. Nonetheless,... More
