Mr. Cafe

I came here, basically because i was in need to find a place with wi-fi which they have and works also pretty well. A part from that, the food is nice at very reasonable price and the staff is very kind. Absolutely suggested...

I had a cup of Sumba Coffee, it was good, really good.
The sate ayam (chicken skewer with peanut sauce) was average.
They have both Indonesian and western food. Maybe the last one worth a try on my next visit.
I love the atmosphere of this restaurant. Blending Sumba unique decoration with western style architecture.
The staff were friendly and helpful, but as we sipped our coffee, we just kept wondering what kept our sate so long to be served? Hey, we were starving

EL-SuBa resto

Commitment to always use the natural, fresh and healthy ingredients our chef does not add food flavor enhancer ( MSG ), replaced by using lime, salt, brown sugar and herbs..And for drinks we offering a healthy choice such as Stevia sugar, brown sugar, honey and organic palm sugar ( gula Sabu ). The oil we used is Olive oil and canola oil. For grilling and barbeque we used pine tree wood that create scent and taste more tasty and rich of flavor. Breads and ice cream are homemade from our kitchen so rich in flavor and ensure the cleanliness and health of the products we serve. Mostly our vegetables which used is organic vegetables from our farm, as well the white water fish ( cat fish and Nile Tilapia.). The other fish such as grouper fish, lobster, prawn, squid, and octopus we catch by our staff near from our resort and keep it freeze for least 5 days.

so when i was staying at Pondok Wisata Pantai Cemara for my middle camp, i ate there every day. I'm just gonna say that i'm very amazed by the service and the food. The service was very pleasing and the food taste amazing. I ate the Buttermilk fried chicken and i loved it from the very first bite and it became my favourite food. It taste better than Mc Donalds fried chicken. In El Suba resto, they also serve different types of coffee. I'm amazed because i didn't expect the food and the service to be this good because it's Sumba. But i wouldn't say El Suba is good. I would say they're Excellent.

Papa Fried Chicken

Reviewed By Fajar Sakti P - Waikabubak, Indonesia

25 oktober 2015
setelah gagal sarapan di alam hijau, saya menuju ke tempat makan di sebelahnya. pertama liat ada tulisan angkringan live music, lalu ada semacam meja kursi untuk tempat makan di area terbuka. akhirnya saya masuk ke dalam. lho kok ayam goreng alias fried chicken. ok lah gak apa, keburu laper, sudah terlalu capek , tenaga terkuras harus segera loading karbo. dan ternyata... jawabannya.. maaf pak belum siap..
jadi disini kalau hari minggu aktivitas baru mulai agak siangan.. akhirnya saya beli minum karena sudah kehabisan air minum selama di perjalanan tadi.
jadi disini itu kalau siang jualan fried chicken, lalu yang area terbuka yang ada live musicnya itu yang berupa cafe mulai buka sore sampai malam..
lokasinya gak jauh dari bandara tambolaka.. hanya 500 meter saja..
disini juga ada tempat / area bermain khusus untuk anak anak.

Alam Hijau Resto

Reviewed By trisyatrisya - Mataram, Indonesia

we had plecing kangkung, oxtail soup and 4 ons Sumba grilled fish. The plecing kangkung was different from that in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara. The taste was average and spicy.
I love the oxtail soup, it was a good warm dish for a dinner. it tasted really good.
The fish was so-so. The spices covering the fish reminds me of the Balinese sambal matah. The fish was fresh, But, still, it was too pricey and It was the most expensive dish we had.
You should try their ginger tea (teh jahe) it was gooooodddddd.
the location is very strategic, just 5 minutes drive from the Tambolaka airport.

They had Indonesian food (i.e.nasi goreng
or Indonesian fried chicken) and also Western food (pasta,pizza,etc). The taste is average but the place is nice.I visited there at the midday.It was windy and refreshing when you visit the restaurant before I continuing the journey to East Sumba.
