Bienvenue Bistro Terrasse – Pantai Indah Kapuk, Jakarta

I was in the Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) area seeking some nice place to have lunch and found Bienvenue Bistro Terrasse. It has a rather classy emblem, and I was pleasantly surprised when I open the door and entered the restaurant.

I love the design setting of the place. It really struck me as the classic modern version of the Beauty and the Beast Castle. The hue and color theme was also my favorite color – Dark Blue!

The waiter was very kind and friendly, he seemed very knowledgeable regarding all of their menu items as well. Their menu consists of both western and Asian fusion food.

Carbonara Pates – IDR75,000++

The Carbonara Pasta has much sauce, but the sauce was too watery instead of being thick and creamy. It wasn’t that bad though, it’s just not your conventional Carbonara Pasta found in other restaurants.

Spicy Capellini Pasta – IDR80,000++

The waiter suggests that this was one of their favorite item in the Pasta section so I decided to order these. It came with a very beautiful classic plating!

Capellini Pasta is a very thin variety of Italian pasta. I kind of liked the texture as it easily pops in your mouth with every bite. It has a very distinct ebi/prawn fragrant, almost a bit to salty but still addictive. No worries because it’s not too spicy!

Spicy Stewed Pork w/ Butter Rice – IDR180,000++

I think it was one of the most expensive item on the menu, so I was really looking forward to it, but it doesn’t came out just as I expected.

It’s supposed to be an 8-hours long slow cooked pork ribs, so I really expect a tender and fragrant ribs on my table, but it was a bit hard and dry, there’s not much meat in the ribs too. The butter rice wasn’t as fragrant and buttery too, and it’s a bit dry and hard.

Roasted Half Baby Chicken – IDR80,000++

The portion is quite small, it’s definitely a very small baby chicken cooked there, but it tastes delicious and well marinated. The mashed potatoes was a bit bland but it was still alright.

It’s a very nice Panna Cotta indeed! I personally loved it plain without the raspberry sauce, but if you prefer it to be sweeter, you could eat it with the sauce. It’s very soft and has that ‘just right’ gelatin/gooey/soft classic Panna Cotta texture.

Overall I thought the food was just ‘okay’, I personally loved the ambiance and the service (the waiter was so friendly and they could explain the menu items in detail – down to describing its tastes!). I think the setting is perfect for occasions like bridal shower!
