Sitinggil restaurant is open 10-4, Wed-Mon. Enjoy lunch, morning or afternoon tea in a gracious, 150 year old, open-air Javanese home. Dining style is casual, with informal lounge and dining sets seating a total 50-60 pax.
Highly fertile, Indonesia is a historic world-leader for spices, many of which are grown on the property. Food and beverages focus on Central Javanese favourites, mainly vegetarian and fish, combined with a few fusion and vegan Fresh, quality ingredients are all sourced locally and spray-free. We serve brown rice, from our own rice-fields and milled next door.
The emphasis is on real food, home-cooked in the kitchen by neighbours.
The restaurant menu is halal and constantly updated, according to seasonal availability.
Events and group bookings are hosted in the ‘pendopo’ in the back garden. Rice paddies and coconut tree groves meet a
mountain range that stretches from Mt. Merbabu to Mt. Telomoyo, covered in forests and tiny villages.
Available for bookings of 15-50 (and up to 250 in the dry season, for events from 3pm). Eco, relaxed, traditional, and very much in casual village style, we can customise menus and setup to suit the client’s needs.

We are ‘locavores’, sourcing almost all ingredients from our own gardens, ricefields, ponds or local village.
Either plated or self-serve menus (buffet-style, with a separate drinks table) are Javanese or Western, competitively priced.
We can help with fresh 'green' decorations, all kinds of cakes, special-use glasses, pavilion tents, sound and any kind of live music.
Events that run into the evening can be lit up by candles, our wood fire pit and lanterns on the terraces. Plus the occasional community of passing fireflies...
Perfect for any kind of relaxed celebration, we seem to be popular for reunions, birthdays, outbound student days and weddings.
We also offer ‘arisan’ morning tea packages, sunset cocktail events, bbq dinner parties and meeting/convention suggestions.
Choose from set menus or create your own very special concept. From Central Javanese to Italian, Thai and Aussie, we love maximizing the fantastic local ingredients and creating fusion food experiences.
There is parking for about 20 cars, with additional off-road parking available for special events.
Things to note :
Minimum bookings; 15 pax. Smaller groups are encouraged to pre-order from the normal menu.
Events held in the pendopo do not have any additional booking fees as long as the total bill is more than IDR 1.000.000, and trash is placed in the many bins provided.
‘Sitinggil’ does not stock or serve alcohol, but you are welcome to bring your own. A small corkage fee will apply. Other outside food or beverages are not permitted.
We love our environment. While we don’t always succeed, we strive to be plastic-free. Please try to print your banner on an alternative material, and be prepared to drink water from a glass.
Events can be held any day, at any time. During rainy season, the restaurant can be used as a stand-by in case of sudden rain.
