Makassar – The Restaurant
Makassar is the capital of the Indonesian province of South-Sulawesi. The port is located next to the Makassar Strait, formerly the most important sea route named for exporting Makassar ebony wood. During colonial times, the captains of all maritime nations appreciated the famous fishing port of Makassar. A place where you could take in, incomparable flavors of the tropics and the spice trade.
Former Chef of Jacques Cousteau’s “Calypso”, Roger has incorporated his expertise into the culinary creations to an exotic cuisine, inspired by recipes from the French Colonies of Indochina to the untouched region of North Africa. It combines exiting flavors, local ingredients with a distinct French note that is inspires through seasonal products and an authentic twist.
Complementary to these flavors we recommend a cocktail at the Bar. Chef Roland serves the Mojito as he learned it in Hemmingway’s hangout “La Bodeguita” in Havana Cuba.
The ambiance is dominated by warm earth tones and rich wood variations. African and Asian artifacts characterize the atmosphere, complimented by photographs and paintings. Just like the Kitchen, the interior devotes the exuberant memories of the former colonies.
Makassar guests are also an eclectic mix: Couples, groups or families, artists, celebrities, party-goers, business people… our team is doing its best to prepare each and every guest a wonderful evening (ask team for an exciting birthday experience).
