De Soematra 1910

Top choice European

in Surabaya

Put on your posh frock to come to this highly regarded restaurant. It's set inside a renovated colonial mansion with 6m-high ceilings, chandeliers and carved wooden drinks counters (with sherry decanters, of course). The food, which is modern Italian, is as memorable as the setting and includes treats such as mushroom cappuccino with lace truffle oil, and pan-fried baby lobster.

There are several differently sized dining rooms – some ideal for a romantic dinner for two, others with space for a whole party. Each room is individually decorated and have beautiful cut flowers all over the place. If you can't afford a full meal, come for afternoon tea at the Lounge.
