Graffiti Bistro is a restaurant and café located on the ground floor of the Mercure Simatupang Hotel. Opened all day from breakfast to dinner, it serves both International and Indonesian food.

It has a playful design, with an industrial theme. Some of the walls have giant watches and clocks attached to them, while the others are painted with colorful graffitis. There is also a collection of around 50 framed photographs. The restaurant space is quite large, with at least 80 seats and a small outdoor area.

During day time, large bay windows provide ample natural lighting, making it a relaxing space for hanging out or for meeting friends. It is not sophisticated or trendy, and it is even relatively quiet, but I enjoyed it a lot for working on my laptop during long afternoons. I also had a few breakfast and dinners there when I stayed in the hotel in March 2017.

The breakfast I had was a buffet, part of the room reservation. It is on par with what you could expect from a 4-star hotel. There is a large choice of Asian and European food, including some delicious pastries that remind you that the Mercure is managed by a French group. Portions are generous, the ingredients are fresh, and overall the taste is excellent.

The lunch and dinner menu features a mix of classic dishes from all over the world: Imported Steaks (Wagyu Beef), Pasta, Pizza, Indian Favorites, Burgers, Sandwiches, Cordon Bleu, etc. You can read their full menu on their website here: Graffiti Restaurant Mercure Simatupang.

Since I was just arriving from a 3-month trip outside of Indonesia, I was actually craving for Indonesian food. For this reason, I tried their local specialties only: The Bebek Graffiti (Grilled Duck), the Sop Buntut (Oxtail Soup) and the Tongseng Kambing (Lamb Stew). The cooking was perfect for all and the size of the plates more than enough. The price is a bit expensive though, especially when the tax and service charge are added. You should expect to spend at least Rp200,000 for a meal with a non-alcoholic drink.

Overall: While most clients in Graffiti seemed to be hotel guests, I think it is an interesting option for outsiders as well. In particular, if you work in TB Simatupang, you can stop by for a lunch with colleagues or, for a dinner while waiting for the traffic jams to ease.

After eating, I recommend you to check their rooftop Karumba on the 19th floor.

Opening Hours:
Every day from 5.30AM to 11PM.
