Last year we came but they closed one month for Ramadan. So, this time we are coming again with family for the view and food. The environment is good but the some of the food too salty for us.
We love the place but too hazy, hope next time when we are back the sky will be clear.

p/s:
1) Some of the food very spicy, please request non spicy food if you can't take spicy food.
2) In Islam, Ramadan is a holy month of fasting, introspection and prayer. Fasting is one of the five fundamental principles of Islam. Each day during Ramadan, followers of Islam, known as Muslims, do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset.

I have no words to describe how breathtaking is the view in here. Too green, too amazing, fresh air, like you stuck in a jungle and back to nature. The food is oke, not too expensive at all. Its just they really need long time to prepared it. But with this kind of view, thats oke to wait. The chicken noodle soup in here is high recommended of my boyfriend. In first i am worried when he ordered it, i knew it's spicy with lots of chilli. I am worried he wont like it, because French couldn't eat spicy. But, he really like it. Even now he always say he wants it again and try to cook it by his self in France.. He said, this food in Taruko Cafe is Unforgettable

After a super long hike with our awesome guide from Roni's Tours - Das Rias - he led us to this oasis situated in tropical jungle with outstanding views of a spiritual vantage point. Superb local coffee, smoothies, juices and local makan to boot. A welcome respite and worth getting out for even as a standalone visit. Random thought... you could propose here it is that beautiful.
