Following the recent government regulations where restaurants in Jakarta are permitted to serve customers outdoors during PPKM, many excellent dining destinations have now re-opened again for dining in. Enjoy the breezy air and soak up some vitamin D of course with strict health protocols that are still applied. Many places are required for guests to show their vaccination card before entering the venue. So to round things up, here are the most coveted outdoor tables you can visit in Jakarta.
The idyllic outdoor seating at Caspar is a perfect spot for any occasion, offering breezy cool air both on an open-air terrace area especially during the golden hours for a quick catch of sunset. Meanwhile, the semi-outdoor area is adorned with beautiful detailed furniture and ornaments that can be perfect for a more intimate setting. To make the ambiance even more relaxed, a few bright-colored cabana seats are chicly decked out to give a warm and cozy environment like in Bali.
The entire Caspar’s outdoor terrace can accommodate up to 90 people, and to go along with their Spanish fare, we recommend their signature tapas like Gambas Con Salvia, Croquetas Mixtas, and Tortilla Espanola, for their paellas we recommend Arroz Negre De Alicante and Arroz Meloso De Marisco.
