“Great lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

I was taken here for lunch by a colleague, whilst working in the office building next door. I ended up coming back another 2 times during my short stay in Jakarta. The pizza was great, the pasta plentiful and the grilled chicken fantastic. Definitely worth a visit, or three.

“It was not only the restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

The ambience of this restaurant was nice, good lighting for dinner, great atmosphere for lunch.
My family came here several times and very liked spaghetti, but I thinked the most special dish was homemade bread. We were always received the highest satisfaction when came here.
A huge restaurant with the great quality of service.
We will go back there every time we are in Jakarta.

Went there the other night, the place looks nice, but food really isnt up to scratch.
service was really terrible. my opinion, they are to involved in the look of the place, rather than service quality food. dont be fooled by pictures.

“Awe-inspiring style and interior, but bad food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

I went here in a large group as a part of an office lunch. We all adored the interior styling of the restaurant; beautiful paintings and pictures, bronze statues, very classy reliefs on walls, etc. All paired with the lighting of the place, which makes the ambiance so perfect.

But the food we ordered tasted either bland or strange. I ordered ravioli, which practically everyone on the table who tasted it felt it was way too sour and salty for their liking. The thin-crusted pizza did not taste different from that of other much cheaper restaurants; there was no surprise about the cheese or meat or anything. Other pasta I tasted, penne & spaghetti (can't pinpoint the exact menu name), also tasted so-so. The salads were not generous at all, with small portions and its taste here and there. Compared to the price offered for these menus, they're completely not worth it.

We ordered several drinks as well, which I thought had the ingredients poorly blended; they just felt like they don't go well with one another.

The desserts were quite nice, but again not too special. I ordered a creme brulee which has ginger in it, and we were quite divided about whether that pint of ginger belong there. The ice cream sorbets were excellent though.

Negev's service is very good and welcoming. It certainly presents itself and services its guests like a semi fine dining restaurants is supposed to. But with the mediocre main menus, I find it difficult to recommend this place. Maybe only when you want to have a drink or two during the evening, as it offers a very heartwarming ambiance. But not much more.

The drinks
