Did someone say brunch? Check out our picks on Jakarta’s latest brunch destination!


Brunch is always a good idea, and we take our brunch very seriously. When the weekend arrives, and whether you decide to stay a bit longer in bed or go out for an early morning run, breakfast is still the most important thing in the morning.

But to enjoy the slow pace of the weekend, brunch – usually served between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. might be the perfect choice to fill your weekend. Occasionally accompanied with some form of alcoholic drink (typically champagne or a cocktail), we have curated some of the best weekend brunch destinations. 

Alto Restaurant & Bar

Alto Restaurant & Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta is once again hosting its legendary Sunday Brunch. Executive Chef Marco Violano has drawn inspiration from the home-style family brunches of his childhood in Italy for the all-new menu. 

The fabulous buffet includes a gourmet salad station and a seafood bar featuring fresh-caught mussels, prawns, shrimp, baby lobster, blue crab, and mignonettes. The afternoon’s highlight is the magnificent selection of Italian antipasti, cold cuts, and fine European cheeses.
