  • Cozy and comfort place for tourism to stay for grabbing some meals and baverages. The meals are great and delicious. The place is near by water castle place and also suitable for go alone and group. Very artistic design cafe where there are many arts and photos and unique woods. The owner also nice and friendly but they just open until late afternoon around at 5 or 7 pm.
  • Really nice atmosphere here! Nice staff, even remember my friend who have visited here half years ago!!!how amazing~~~~ The owner is artist, so there are elegant decorations all around the cafe~ One of the best experience in joja!! Must come!
  • It was nice and quiet. The staff spoke english and were very welcoming. I could hear subtle music in the distance, with the wind blowing through, as this is partially outdoors.
  • Very cultural restaurant, owned by an artist and a beatiful wife :) Clean and delicious services
  • Good atmosphere, I relaxed with beer and nice food
