My first meal at Cafe Aras was voted the best dish on the table by the guy who tried them all. I ordered the pamarasan fish (in black sauce). It was a huge portion, and the sauce was so good. My friends liked their pork steak, the pamarasan pork, and other dishes. But on my second visit, a friend and I ordered the pork cooked in bamboo and the chicken cooked in bamboo (must order 5 or more hours ahead of time), and we weren't that happy. My pork was incredibly dry, and my friend didn't enjoy the coconut in the bamboo chicken dish. The juices they make are lovely, but be sure to ask for them cold. The ambiance is nice so long as the tour guides looking for business leave you alone. It's a tourist hangout, so there is bound to be some of that. The prices are okay... some of the dishes are almost double what you'd pay at a non-touristy restaurant. But I'd suggest it for anyone interested in trying some of the local dishes that won't be easy to find at other eateries.
