Hey guys! Yesterday, my buddy Fio informed me that there was a new establishment in town called Tune Restaurant & Wine Bar. *She always knows about the newest things before anyone else, which is why she’s the queen of oh-so-existent!* So tonight, we decided to take a look if it was open for public yet, and luckily, it was! Yayy~
& Wine Bar
“Our eclectic blend of modern design and architecture using natural wood, glass, steel and stone materials, with a combination of traditional French, Spanish and Italian cuisines, brings the gourmand an epicurean melange of natural taste and refined elegance.”tune website
The restaurant’s use of glasses for their wall caught my attention from a distance. My initial thought was that the interior design must be nice if they’re taking care of details like that. It got me so excited, and I was not mistaken, in fact, it did have an excellent interior design inside.
Tune Restaurant was once previously known as Kunang-Kunang restaurant. If you reside on the west side of Surabaya, then you’re probably familiar with this place 🙂
Now let’s take a quick look inside, shall we? ^^
This restaurant has three sections: the dining area, wine bar, and VIP room. The first one you’re going to see is the dining space.
the wine bar
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to buy Wine just yet. They are still awaiting approval for their alcohol license, but during their Grand Opening, you certainly will be able to 🙂
I adore this VIP room because, as you can see, it is beautiful! In addition, the sound system is excellent, it will spoil your ears without disturbing anyone outside. This VIP room is perfect for up to 15 people looking for a luxurious and private experience.
Behind this giant door, is another VIP room and is located in front of the Wine Bar. Although they said it would be turned into a wedding ballroom, I don’t think that’s possible because the space isn’t large enough. It could possibly be used for an engagement party or private birthday party though. Unfortunately, it’s not ready yet so I wasn’t allowed to go inside.
food & Beverages
This is their default table setting, which has a small and tight shape with full cutleries and plates already in place. (Please be careful if you bring a large shoulder bag)
I’m not sure if this is for every customer, but that night they offered us some free appetizers that include bread and butter, as well as chopped fruits.
Virgin belinni (35k) | Green Tea Bean (35k)
The Virgin Bellini was refreshing, delicious, and delightful~ (I have always loved Mocktails that contain lime or orange mixed with soda). Whereas the flavor of the Green Tea Bean was quite rich, you can definitely taste the green tea. Fiony even asked the waiter to add more water to dilute it, lol (Indeed for 35k [Rp], this is a really good drink, but I’d still prefer Starbucks’s because it tastes different)
Boston Seafood Chowder (70k)
Fio says the soup is too salty, and I agree. I’m not a big fan of seafood cream soup anyway.
Quatro Formaggi (90k) for 3 persons
The Quatro Formaggi Pizza is all about the cheese! It’s so delicious, you’ll want to eat it while it’s still hot and feel the melted cheese inside your mouth.
Chicken Confit (110k)
Fio’s impression of the dish: “I’ve tasted better..” | My opinion of the meal: “This is delicious!” (I had never tried Chicken Confit Before)
Panna Cotta Espresso (50k)
Both of us loved it! But we didn’t get to finish this, because we were already full, haha~
The toilet was spotless, tidy, and fragrant (they used natural flowers), and it even had towels!
thoughts & opinion
I absolutely love Tune restaurants & Wine bar! Not only is the place beautiful and cozy, but their interior design makes you want to take pictures everywhere. The best part? Both the food and drinks are delicious and reasonably priced.
The service was excellent, and they don’t charge any service tax! There was this one waitress who was so friendly and funny. She didn’t realize she was speaking in Javanese though when she spoke to us. It would be better if she had used Bahasa Indonesia, but I personally don’t really mind as long as she’s polite – which she was.
She was very patient with us, checking in frequently and making sure we had everything we needed. She showed me the VIP room without me having to ask, and even offered to take a picture of us when she saw that I was struggling.
All of the waiters and waitresses are really paying attention to us. They noticed our single move, even if it was only slightly. They knew when we were troubled by the number of plates on our table and helped us right away.
And I’m so grateful she ran after me and handed back my Samsung Stylus Pen that I mistakenly left on the table. Thank you, again! 🙂 They also have outdoor seating, but sadly it was raining heavily and dark by the time we finished lunch, so I couldn’t take any pictures of it.
Definitely going back for another dinner, soon!
