The On On Pub is located round the side of the Candi Baru Hotel and Black Canyon Coffee on Jl Rinjani. On a Sunday evening it was quiet, soccer was on the big screen in the restaurant, and the service was attentive. I ordered mutton samosas as a starter and salmon steak. Both dishes were good, better than your average... More

Had a great evening here.... nice chilled, relaxed atmosphere with cold beer, good food and pleasant staff.... all the ingredients for a really great night! Sat on the balcony area outside and didn't particuarly find mosquitos an issue either. Tried various dishes off the menu and all were good too.

My friend recommend this place for us, this place similar to Our Bar at Surabaya she said, but this is more oldies style. So we came here and found out that's right looks like old style Our Bar without live music and Dj. :) we were sitting at the balcony. Nice place. The indoor area was too crowded when we're... More

This is like a classic recipe i guess, But they have the best one in town. Moist and delicious on the inside with a crispy coating on the outside. The minus is the small parking area and no-AC here. So if its summer, you'll be sweating a lots then.

Best Onion Ring so far in my life, and I've had plenty, in different sporadic countries too. Cold beer served in frosted glass, just right. Food can take a bit long. Love the relaxed atmosphere and decor there, nice setting and terraces. Good price. Food taste average to very good. Good vegetarian options. Outdoor seating place which means smoking allowed...
