Are you planning for your romantic dinner or looking a place just to chill out with your friends? I think this is it, Decanter.. Located in Kuningan area, Decanter is a wine house to enjoy the comfort of good wine..

The ambiance is no doubt, one of the pulling factor here.. With a full of plants decor, spacious area, this wine house really gives a comfy and homey feeling.. They design some area with hundred small light bulbs to resemble a starry sky which give a romantic atmosphere.. The place is perfect for romantic dining or wine lounging..

They have an open-concept kitchen where we could see directly how the chefs prepare our dish from the dining area..

The beverages, Lemon Juice (20K) and Pineapple Juice (20K) for E.. It's quite refreshing but I didn't sure it is a real fresh juice fruit.. What a small serving size..

The food here is served in large portion, indeed they emphasized the spirit of sharing and togetherness here..

So we just ordered this Tagliatelle Lamb (130K), a homemade spinach tagliatelle pasta braised well in seasoned lamb bolognese ragu sauce.. This was good, the pasta was fresh and cooked in al-dente texture.. And the sauce also cooked well with all the spices..

And Alsatian Choice - single size (55K), bratwursts and sliced pork legs served with finely shredded sauerkraut/sour fermented cabbage and mustard.. It is a traditional Alsace food.. The bratwurst/pork sausages had a nice crunchy skin when u bite and it's really juicy inside.. I didn't eat that pork leg, but E said its nice, tender and tasty.. A good option for meat lovers hehe..

Decanter is a nice place to chill out, the service was good, and the most important thing is that I am happy with the ambiance here.. Even though I think that the food here is less varied and a bit expensive.. For me, as this place is a wine house so it's more appropriate for wine lounging than the dinner..
