A very popular and very crowded 2storey restaurant. Quite modern and relatively clean. Service quite ok although all tables were full and we had to call the waitress many times. Food and drink not expensive. Maybe it is a good place for relaxing lunch or...More

There are two Cafe Aaras both located on the main road of Rantepao, and both good. Same owners, but the biggest of the cafes is made Muslim friendly (for instance no pork). I've had very good food in both restaurants. In both places the staff...More

Café Aras is een nieuw restaurant in de hoofdstraat van Rantepao. De eigenaar, Aras (arasparura@yahoo.com) is tevens een soort hoofd van de gidsen in de stad en handelt in antiek. Het restaurant is mooi ingericht met veel antieke versieringen aan de muren.Op de kaart staan zowel Indonesische (inclusief Toraja) gerechten als Westerse gerechten (steaks, pasta, pizza). Wij hebben er twee maal heerlijk gegeten, zijn ook Australiërs tegen gekomen die dolenthousiast waren over de steaks, maar ook het Indonesische eten was erg lekker.Ik had ook de indruk dat er veel gasten waren die na één bezoek vrijwel elke dag dat ze in Rantepao zijn daar eten.Is zeer zeker een vermelding waard. Iets duurder restaurant, maar zeker het beste waar ik in Rantepao gegeten heb.
