Happy Face after All!
Here is some review for this restaurant. I was invited by friends for gathering at Jogya, and finally they decided to try this Resto. My expection was like, wow, Jogja, roof top, live music, good drinks, good friends you named it. We arrived around 7.30pm, the restaurant was not so busy, just 2-3 tables occupied. Their design concept was Spanish contemporary, fine dining. We checked around outdoor too, but finally we decided to sit indoor, too humid outside and not really a good view. We had dinner already so were just want to relax, chillax, good drinks, good music. The waitress handed us the drink list and we ordered beers, long island ice tea and Illusion. Our drinks is arrived, the long island ice tea did not really look likes one, so black like black tea. OK, maybe just the color. We took a sip and it was awful, tasted like a coke, and the Illusion also tasted like a syrup, no alcohol at all, not sure how they mixture it. We were disappointed, being faired, with the price we paid, we excepting something nicer than that. We were about to leave the place, but I decided to call the waitress and explained that the drinks were way too far from our Cocktails expectation. She came back and said the glass size and mixture according the bartender were as it is. OK, we were done, paid for 125k for an awful mixture coke. 10 minutes later, the guy, Fariz approached us, he was the bar manager. He asked about our complaint and I explained. He understand and offered us to modify the drinks or replaced the new ones. I opted modified. He came back with the real good ones. Thanks to him, cheering us up again. 10 minutes later, they gave us a complimentary onion ring, calamari and grilled baby potatoes as a token of apologies. I really appreciated that. In the end, we left the place with happy face.

- Pasta Champignon with Truffle Oil; it was simple and easy its an okay dish overall, can not taste the truffle oil. - Chicken Pollo Assado; Good flavour, moist chicken, small portions of carbs.. hmm what.. but this is the only good one out of all that was ordered. - Striploin with Chimichurri (150k); I asked for a MEDIUM-RARE steak. Yet it came out as A NOT VERY WELL PREPARED STEAK. It was not evenly cook - at one end it was cooked all the way through though it was still juicy, at the middle it was medium rare, on the other end it was RARE. The Chimichurri sauce is okay, no freshness from lemon, or tanginess or whatsoever. I was very disappointed. and NO CARBS (no potatoes or roasted carrots or anything, just few leaves of bundled "salad" and 1 tomato halfed.. NOT worth it at all. Pasta paella (150k); An uncleaned shrimp with still "poop-sack" on it, dead mussel - not fresh. Salty all the way through and overcooked pasta. Rice paella (300k); Very salty, Even I need to adjust it with table served black pepper, sliced lemon that was charged, and sugar. Yet the good thing about this place is the ambiance, a very soothing dinner for couples. Service was relatively okay - a bit slow and fairly friendly.
