came here yesterday with my best friend for celebrating my birthday. have couple a beers and pizza. surprisingly they have many options of beers. we ordered pizza, chicken fingers, and churros. the beer was good, it's cold and refreshing. the pizza was great also, it's thin kind of Italian pizza and crispy on the edge. I love the churros, it's good coz I love chocolate. but the chicken fingers was ok, not special.
I love been here..the atmosphere was calm and relaxing. you can see the sunset or just walk to the beach to taste the water on your feet.
they have bungalows too, and swimming pool. they also have pool table near the bar.
overall, I love this place. definitely will come back again.

Elim Hotel and restaurant

Reviewed By Katrin-Australia - Melbourne, Australia

We are staying at the Elim Hotel in Jepara currently and enjoying our stay.
The staff, particularly Pak Thomas have been super-helpful. The room is basic, but clean. All rooms seem to have twin beds but they can be put together.
For the price, location and friendliness of the staff, I recommend Elim Hotel.
We have only had breakfast and snacks at the hotel which is in a lovely outdoor setting.
If we come to Jepara, which is a very laid back, very clean and friendly town, we will stay at the Elim Hotel again.

The Gecho Cafe

The Gecho cafe & Inn. Situated in the center of town makes it the perfect place to meet up with friends. We have been established since 1997. We serve a wide range of excellent cuisine all at reasonable prices. We are open from 11am until 12 at night. So come along and enjoy the ambiance. We now have four Executive double rooms in the garden at the back, so if you are in Jepara for a stay this is the place.

This place can serve you some good vegetarian food if you are in Jepara & want something which is closest to what you can get back in India. I was a little apprehensive about the veg food that would be served over here as this place served both Veg & Non Veg dishes. I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted the Paratha(Bread) along with some Veg potato curry & Fried rice which was tasty. You may not able to compare the same with the authentic India food back in India, but none the less it was good enough to fill my stomach. The restaurant had couple of other Indian diners as well which I guess was due to a few variety of Indian dishes which the restaurant served. The restaurant has free wifi as well.

Gudeg Suyek Jepara

Reviewed By Inaku

This place is popular among the locals to grab a quick morning breakfast.
It's always packed in the morning and often there's long queue while the stall is not so big, so you have to finish your meal in a short time. That's why I prefer to order takeaway.
I'd give 4 stars for the food and 2,5 stars for the place and service.

La Marina Family Resto & Cafe

Reviewed By Rosie K - Salatiga, Jawa Tengah, Indonesia

This was our first visit to this large airy restaurant by the sea. With both indoor and veranda Seating, this family restaurant can accommodate large groups as well as individuals and couples. The venue is simple and basic with wooden tables and chairs. From the table we chose, we could enjoy watching fishing vessels coming and going as we ate our late afternoon lunch.
The best part about this restaurant is the food. The well-worn menu lists dozens of seafood choices. We chose two kinds of fish (Krapu and Patikoli), one steamed and one grilled. They were both attractively presented, delicious, and reasonably priced. The menu also included a variety of other dishes, including appetizers, drinks and desserts.
We would recommend this restaurant for families and individuals looking for delectable seafood and good service in an informal atmosphere.
