Favorite Bandung Restaurants

One of the big attractions to Bandung is the variety of interesting restaurants, cafes, and coffee houses tucked into the hills around Bandung. Every weekend, Jakartans escape the chaos and congestion of the capital to relax in the quiet Bandung hills.

Here are some of my favorite places.


Dago Atas Area


Cloud 9 Restaurant Bandung
Cloud 9 Restaurant

A bar / restaurant / night club designed in sort of a ski lodge theme – it’s very cozy sitting by the fireplace on a cool evening in the mountains above Bandung, while enjoying the company of good friends. It’s one of Bandung’s most popular night spots. Various activities are separated by levels – dining, dancing, and bar. The pizza is the best, but all the food is good, and the ambiance is unparalleled.

Kopi Ireng Restaurant Bandung
Nice View...
Kopi Ireng Restaurant Bandung
Starry Nights....

Think spectacular view, great coffee and Beef Wellington – Kopi Ireng is one of Bandung’s favorite places. They usually offer live entertainment on weekends. This is where I had my first cup of Kopi Luwak Tubruk – the most expensive coffee in the world. It is processed from the intestines of the Musang (weasel). That’s right, the Musang eats the coffee beans, passes them through their digestive system, and then deposits the finished product for us coffee lovers to enjoy. Rp.75,000 per cup.

Eastern Shark Fin Restaurant Bandung
Eastern Shark Fin Restaurant

On Saturday and Sunday mornings, Eastern Shark Fin Restaurant has an excellent Dim Sum breakfast that includes a huge variety. Get there before 8:00 a.m. to avoid long lines. The price depends on what you eat, but a good meal for me was Rp.50,000.

The Chinese take their Dim Sum very seriously as a culinary art. It was interesting to learn Dim Sum has three categories. Fried Dim Sum is likened to a leather jacket in that it’s hard on the outside. Then, there are two varieties of steamed Dim Sum: the “wool sweater,” and the “silk blouse.” The wool sweater also has a fairly dense outer layer, but the silk blouse has a fragile, sheer skin. Both the leather jacket, and the wool sweater varieties were originally peasant food, but the silk blouse variety was reserved for royalty.

Because there are no signs, it’s kind of hard to find – look for it diagonally across from Santo Borromeus Hospital.

    Adding to Bandung Culinary, I just want to inform that there is A South Indian Restaurant located in Pasteur, Bandung. Well, you may not really call it a restaurant since it’s quite small and humble. It is not a fine dine place, it’s more like a Mamak Shop which can be found in Malaysia & Singapore. The concept is more open to any range of people with a very very affordable price. You can get a very good food with very reasonable prices there. The owner said the place was set up to meet the demand of Indian Malaysian students that are studying in Bandung (ITB & Unpad), it becomes the First & Only South Indian Cuisine with Malaysian & Singapore concept. I recommend to try the food :)
    The address : Jl. Dr. Djunjunan No. 156, Pasteur Bandung.
    Phone : 022.91260321

    I would not recommend anyone to dine at The Cellar Bandung. Nothing special about the food. The atmosphere is awful, lots of mosquito. The service is the worst I have ever experienced in Bandung. Can’t help you (don’t know to) get a cab. Really a bad dining experience.
