Kafe Pisa Restaurant Bar Live Music

By The Jakarta Team

Kafe Pisa is an institution in Jakarta. It has been around since 1993, starting in Menteng, with now different branches and activities in Indonesia.

I only tried Kafe Pisa in Menteng, which is a really happening place. The live music schedule is impressive: Starting at 9pm every evening, you have a band playing inside or in the open air garden. Each night is different, from jazz to rock & roll with a DJ also. Their website is very well updated and it has the list of events a few weeks in advance (Kafe Pisa events' schedule).

One of the problems I have with the band is that it can be quite loud. The restaurant is a great hangout spot for you and your friends, but not ok for dates or intimate dinners. The crowd is mostly made of middle-class Indonesians, very few expats now.

Food-wise, Kafe Pisa has Italian food which is overpriced in my opinion but the huge choice of home-made ice-creams compensates. A bit commercial too.

  1. Even if there is nothing really special in this restaurant, it should be visited, as it is an institution in which "everyone" has already been. The open air area of the Menteng branch is nice.
