MERAH PUTIH MERAH PUTIH IS NOW OPEN FOR LUNCH. Merah Putih’s restaurant provides a space for dining like no other in Indonesia a perfect balance between visual design, eco sustainability and functional working spaces. Alternative materials and unconventional techniques have come together for the purpose of showcasing the heights of Indonesian talent and craftsmanship. Translucent roof columns capture rainwater and channel it into our water-flow system. Advanced UV filters purify and recycle water, meaning the restaurant draws on no precious groundwater reserves. Solar filtered glass walls meanwhile let the light through to allow our landscaped interiors to thrive, yet keep the tropical heat out. Our indoor gardens create intimacy amid the majesty, meaning you can enjoy a discreet dinner for two or a large social event with family and friends.

WELCOME TO CHARLIE . . . The space created by an international collective of designers and artists resembles a mansion, where the interiors reflect the eclecticism and a slight eccentricity of its owner. The ground floor is a laid-back city café and bakery, upstairs – a spacious dining area offering a more formal dining environment. Moreover, there are several private dining and sitting areas, as well as a VIP balcony on the second floor overlooking the bar. The menu reflects Charlies love for travel and gastronomic experiences, and the dishes are inspired by the traditional fares from all over the world which are given a gourmet twist by our Executive Chef Meidy Zuhri. Our philosophy is “everyday gourmet”- we aim to serve dishes that not only look and taste great, but also offer great value for our guests. We built the mansion to offer the locals, as well as the visiting folk, a comfortable home, a place to enjoy whatever the hour, and whatever the weather. Be it early morning breakfast, laid-back lunch, afternoon tea time, mid-week dinner or weekend party time, Charlies doors are always open for his friends and other good people.
