Huize van Wely is a Dutch Restaurant, Patissier and Chocolatier located in Kemang. This upscale restaurant is located in the Papilion building, the famous glass building on Kemang Raya. This type of architecture is quite uncommon in Jakarta, that is why I wanted to try this restaurant. On the top floor of this building you will find Shy Rooftop & restaurant (you can check my review here).

Outstanding glass building, fancy Dutch restaurant, European-style cuisine...this place is very fancy ! This is not a regular place to hang out with your buddies...It would more suitable to make a proposal or to have a serious conversation.

In this very chic decor, I tried to order some food and I was not disappointed. First they give you a small piece of French bread along with salted butter, which is a very sweet attention. Then I did not wait too long to taste my spicy quesadillas and that was very good. But the best part in my opinion in the dessert and chocolate area.

Huize van Wely has very sophisticated pastries and chocolate. I tried both and it was totally worth it. I keep in mind the wide variety of bouchées "chocolates pralines": nougat, coffee blanc, dark, milk...
They have maybe around 25 different tastes. Again it is very expensive since 1 bouchées is approximately 15 000 Rp (price by weight).

At the time to pay the bill, don't forget to add Tax (10%) and Service (10%), like any other fancy places in the city.

Overall I would recommend it to celebrate a very special occasion or to have a real thrill with the chocolates pralines.

  1. The food here is very good, even though it is expensive. The sandwiches in particular the organic chicken are great. I always start my meal off with a bowl of tomato soup - they add just a dab of sour cream to make it creamy.
