Bagus Pandang Restaurant

Reviewed By arryx23 - Bandar Lampung

The view from this restaurant was very nice, because this restaurant located at the hill and overlooking to the Jayapura City.
At first time we are uncertain with this restaurant, because it's look so quiet but after we order some food and enjoying the view, we are so happy and the name of this restaurant also match with the location. Bagus Pandang mean nice view.

B-One

Reviewed By Malarchy - Jakarta, Indonesia

B-One is a restaurant in Jayapura on the banks of the Pacific Ocean. It looks out onto a stunning expanse of water though the restaurant is not designed especially well for the external view. B-One serves traditional Indonesian food from Java and Sumatra as well as an extensive fish and seafood collection. It is just about possible to find something vegetarian.
B-One is not especially attractive restaurant. It is a clean and friendly enough place but its decor leaves a bit to be desired. The look is more of a canteen with long tables and a somewhat plasticky blue style to the surroundings. The private room upstairs is a little nicer but is still not amazingly easy on the eyes.
The service is fine if in need of clear direction. English is not really spoken here so Bahasa Indonesia is the better option.
Of an evening it appears that this is a popular location for a spot of Indonesian karaoke. For those who are fans of that entertainment then this is presumably a good spot. For those who want to hear others speak then it can be somewhat deafening even in the room upstairs.
The food is ok. Presumably fish and other seafood is the specialty. Nothing stood out as especially delicious.
On the plus side B-One is a large enough place for a group to dine. It is relaxed and friendly. An ok place serving west Indonesian food plus fish.

RM. Nusantara

Reviewed By Indra M - Bandung, Indonesia

This restaurant delicacy is tilapia fish BBQ, and they meant it. This is the best place in the Jayapura city to enjoy such cuisine. Tilapia is fresh water fish that usually only grow up to 1 kilogram. But here in Jayapura, this fish was kept in Sentani lake can grow up to 3 kilograms. And you will enjoy that big fish alone only for you. They serve tilapia fish BBQ with special hot and sweet sauce and with steam rice. Just don’t miss the tilapia fish BBQ if you’re visiting Jayapura city.

Enjoying Jayapura while eating or just drinking. You could see Jayapura from this restaurant. I ordered Soda Gembira and Jus Alpukat and it's tasted nice. You could reach this restaurant by walking from Jl. Percetakan/Aston Hotel for about 15 minutes. Good for taking pictures.

I was taken by friends to this incredible restaurant. The decor features the authentic Papuan traditions and art. The unique architecture was designed by owners with grace and care, taking full advantage of the perfect setting to overlook the bay 180+ degrees.

Dante Coffee

Reviewed By Malarchy - Jakarta, Indonesia

Dante Coffee is a coffee shop in Jayapura just round the corner from the Swiss Bel-Hotel. It is part of a chain of coffee shops but is still a cool place to be. Dante has three floors which can be accessed via lift or stairs. Getting to Dante normally involves use of a car and there is only limited parking space but as usual in this part of the world there are creative ways to get around such limitations.
The food options at Dante are relatively limited. This is not a place for fine dining, it is a coffee shop. Portion sizes are on the small size, sides of fries for instance are easily consumed without noticing their existence. There is a food menu but the purpose of being in Dante is not really to eat.
The purpose of being in Dante is to drink. There are some delicious options available. In particular the avacado coffee seems to go down a storm with those who drink such things. The cold chocolate is absolutely divine. A really great and flavoursome chocolate. Great coffee drinking.
The surroundings are a little on the shabby side, a bit too darkly lit, the plastic a bit too obvious. It is not exactly a beautiful place but it is still surprisingly cool given its look and the fact it is part of a chain.
Price is not the biggest draw for Dante. It is a bit expensive. Service is willing enough but in need of being sought out, especially on the upper floors as the staff do not routinely seem to go looking to help.
Looking for a coffee shop in Jayapura and don't mind it being part of a chain? Dante is a solid option.
