de Soematra 1910

Built in 1910, an old house on Jalan Sumatera 75 in Surabaya has been converted into an entertaining place, with two formal dining rooms; a couple of sitting rooms fit for high teas; a piano area; a formal café, and a terrace seating area.

The glory of this Dutch Colonial architecture in Indonesia has been restored. Any damaged original elements, such as the tiles, the ceiling, the stained glass windows have been restored and/or faithfully and meticulously replicated.

Dining is by reservations only, two-days in advance at the latest. Walk-ins are limited to the seating rooms, unless they are already reserved and/or occupied.

A new annex consisting of two dining halls and separated from the main house will function as a restaurant in the near future.

A Dining Review can be found HERE.

Architect Hidajat Endramukti of Endramukti Design led the one-year restoration and renovation.
