Hidden fine french resto in the old town Cikini
Java Bleu is a French restaurant on the second floor of an old house in Cikini street. we have to take the stair to reach the colored wall restaurant. The menu was written on a chalkboard and the staff patiently explained us the meaning of those French words. the place is small, hidden, unexpected, and the colored walls and cloth on ceiling gives a unique ambience for the resto. the food is good and the price is affordable for a French resto.

classic, delicious food, wise price!
Me and my friend decided to visit and try this restaurant just because often passed it by around Jl. Cikini and it was worth it! located on the second floor of a tiny building, however they can create good spaces inside, good for couples or group or hang out with friends. nice atmosphere altough not too bright, we choose a table just next to the window and it was perfect. very delicious foods! the garlic chicken especially, the best one i ever had! the service kinda slow but it was no problem so many time to talk as well. Fair price! Another visit? for sure! :)

A classy classic french menu, delicious at affordable price
We reached there just in time for dinner. This was our first time. I read a lot of good reviews about this place including the nice interior yet so quite during the busy dinner hours. Yep its true, we were the only ones thru that entire friday evening. Service was excellent. We had chardonay which was the only wine available. We ordered escargot which was superb. Lots of garlic butter and herbs. Just very nice! Then duck confit and seabass for the main. Here i think duck confit was really nice, tender and juicy. Tho i prefered the sauce to be a slightly more sour to balance the sweetness of the duck. We closed off the evening with black and white choco, nd also baba au rhum. It was true the baba au rhum was a favourite. It was fluffy soft and the taste and texture was really balanced. Overall we were satisfied with java bleu and would like to see more ppl coming in. Will come back definitely.
