Our restaurant serves modern, contemporary European cuisine using local, seasonal ingredients.
about this place
As chefs, we share a passion for crafting contemporary European cuisine from quality local ingredients. This concept is already popular in the west, but still new to Indonesia where most chefs rely on expensive imported ingredients. We started working together in Jakarta over five years ago and gradually came to see that it just didn’t make sense to cook with imported ingredients when we were surrounded by Indonesia’s bounty. We think of ourselves as the catalysts between local producers and discriminating diners. Our ingredient-driven menu celebrates the farmers, fisherman and artisans we’ve met along our journey. By developing lasting relationships with local producers, we ensure you the freshest of chemical-free seasonal produce and ethically fed meat animals. And by supporting local farmers and artisans, Locavore is an authentic member of its community. Locavore is a small and cozy restaurant operated by a team of highly dedicated food enthusiasts whose primary goal is to ensure our guests savour their experience at Locavore while dining on artistically prepared, fresh and highly enjoyable dishes. Part of that process is to source 95% of our products locally and not to keep large stocks but rather to source as much of our products fresh on a daily basis. This, together with the fact that all of our dishes are prepared a la minute with only fresh produce, certainly leads to more strain on our team but absolutely allows us to achieve our stated goal of providing our guests with locally produced, fresh and delicious dishes. We are and aim to continue being a fine dining establishment that focuses equal parts on the cuisine and on the experience. Our staff will always aim to be clear with our guests that if the guests are in a rush no more than 3 courses should be ordered due to the time and care involved in the preparation of each dish. We certainly do not want to mislead our guests and that is why we want everyone to know that the time it takes for a proper experience at Locavore can absolutely be several hours but the reason for that is not lack of care or attention but rather the exact opposite … every dish is prepared with meticulous attention so as to ensure that every one of our guests will walk away from Locavore remembering the cuisine they experienced with us. While we understand that this philosophy may not be applicable for everyone, as food enthusiasts we welcome everyone and anyone to join us at Locavore to take part in this culinary approach which we believe in, standby and advocate for within the sphere of fine dining.
