Very glad that I found this new restaurant in Solo. Fantastic western and Indonesian food at very good prices. Run by a Dutch man and his Indonesian wife. This will be my second home during my stays in Solo

Visiting and dining at 1863 Restaurant Solo for the first time with wife and kids.
Both International as Indonesian food very good, with fresh ingridients.
The beer cold and juices extremely well. Although the dishes are not served at the table
in the same time, which is impossible with all different ordering and personal attention of Chef
only the overall judgement is very good , close to excellent.
Prices reasonable. Atmosphere with some slight back ground music could be a little better.
Once again good food, will be back again.

We loved this restaurant, set in a beautifully renovated colonial house. The patio in the back has a quiet and charming atmosphere. Our Indonesian friends brought us here for drinks and appetizers. The bitterballen and kroketten were delicious. A great place with a friendly staff.

We had dinner here. The food is very good. I had a soup and a tenderloin steak imported. Prices are very reasonable. Last but not least cold beer. Definitely a good choice
The name "1863" was chosen in recognition of the early endeavours of our owner's Dutch great-grandfather-in-law Conrad Alexander Willem Cavadino who started Cavadino & Co in 1863 with a restaurant, bakery and shop (toko) at the corner of Rijswijk (Jalan Veteran) and Citadelweg (Jalan Veteran I); a then high-class neighbourhood in Batavia (Jakarta).
So famous had the Cavadino business become that a bridge in front of the hotel was named after it early on.
The building is still in use as a hotel and recognised to be the oldest hotel in Jakarta; albeit with different owners; being Hotel Sriwijaya since 1950
Taxi drivers will still take you to this hotel when you mention Hotel Cavadino.
Also the bridge is still there and the building formerly housing the toko is now the hotel's restaurant.
