I’m sure you’ve been seeing photos of people with the floating duck lately? Yep? Emairait? I know I’m right! Hahaha.. Because yes, they are the first Roof Bar Cafe in Surabaya that brings a new playful experience for the customer by putting the floating duck on their pool! I’ve been there once and I’m ready to tell you the whole story about this place.
Kooffee+ Roof Bar
Koffee+ Roof Bar is placed in the middle of our lovely town, it’s in Gubeng Street, precisely inside the G-Suites Hotel. To reach this place, I’m suggesting you guys to better take the road from Sulawesi Street. Well, you can actually come from Panglima Sudirman Street to Karimun Jawa street and cross your way from Siloam Hospital, but I don’t really recommend that. I did that before and it caused quite chaos, haha.. I was crossing the road literally like a boss. LOL
Kooffee+ Roof Bar is not as big as I thought it would be. It can only fit 35 people, but the decorations are pretty chic and it makes the place feels so alive. But unfortunately, when I went there, there were only two people in charge. The first one was inside the bar making the drinks, while the other one was running around taking customers’ orders and stuff. It was not effective at all as they were really busy with their tasks, they were not even paying attention to the customers themselves. (I waved my hand several times, but none noticed)
What actually makes Kooffee Roof Bar interesting is that they have a pool with a floating duck and every customer has the privilege to take pictures on it. And since it’s on the rooftop, you can enjoy the view from the 11th floor.
To get on the duck, you have to be pretty careful and aware, you don’t want to get yourself all wet right? haha.. To make it smoother, you better take off your shoes, and you can actually use some help from the waiter. Once you land your butt on the duck, you can let the fun begin. Don’t worry, the duck is attached to a cable wire that’s tied to the pool handle, so you won’t go too far or even worse, fall from the 11th floor, haha.. (sorry that’s actually pretty creepy)
For the menu, Kooffee+ Roof Bar serves quite various dishes, they got mostly western menus, some are Indonesian food, and perhaps a couple of Chinese cuisines. Price-wise, it’s only around 25k to 58k. Not too pricey for a rooftop bar like this.
The Ultimate Steak with Buttered Rice (55k)
Banana Honey Caramel (Banana + Ice Cream) 32k
I ordered two dishes, and both have their own stories.
The Ultimate Steak with Buttered Rice was a total misunderstanding. On the menu, the title says “The Ultimate Steak with Buttered Rice”, and the description says :
the most mind-blowing Roast Potatoes you'll ever taste.
But when it came, there were no roast potatoes there, and when I asked about it, the waitresses said, “Uhm.. Yes, if you choose roast potatoes for the side dish, you’ll get the roast potatoes instead of rice.” And I was like, “But the title itself said “with Buttered Rice” and the description said “Roast Potatoes” so I thought I should’ve gotten the buttered rice with the roast potatoes right?
And you didn’t ask me whether I wanted the buttered rice or the roast potatoes in the first place, so then what now?” She couldn’t say anything and left. It was really mind-twisting.. rrr.. Thankfully it tasted good, lol..
Banana Honey Caramel was actually another confusion. At first, I tasted it and was about to complain hard because I spooned the white ice cream but it tasted sour. I thought it was spoilt, but the waitresses again said, “Uhm.. It’s not spoilt, it’s yogurt”. She left me and my friend speechless.
The menu doesn’t say anything about Yoghurt and suddenly there was Yoghurt mixing with chocolate ice cream? Hmm.. I just can say that it truly didn’t work, the yogurt and chocolate ice cream and caramel… *scratching my head really hard* Oh, and one more : It says “Lighter, fluffy Pancake” but I didn’t get the “Pancake”. As it was not on the plate, and I just realized it right now as I’m writing this blog post, LOL..
I truly feel that there should be a large room for improvement in Kooffee+ Roof Bar. You have to add more waiters and waitresses to serve the customers, and they also have to be very detail-oriented in doing their job.
For instance, I didn’t get cutleries and it was so hard for me to call the waiter as they were busy on their own inside the bar. Also, you have to be brief with what you wrote on the menu and the realization on the plate. I hope the case that I experienced won’t be repeated in the future. 🙂 I guess that’s all from me.
