As part of Altitude restaurants, Gaia offers wide variety of Italian food. The 46th floor simple and elegant restaurant with high ceiling interior and huge window overlooking view of Jakarta,is already a gem itself. When I went there for lunch with a couple of my girlfriends, it’s a little hustle to call for the waitress at the beginning,but afterwards our lunch went on smoothly without any delay.
Rucola (IDR 89.000): Wild Rucola salad with sauteed baby shrimps in lemon dressing. Fresh rocket salad with tasty succulent shrimps and good tangy dressing.
Penne (IDR 140.000): Penne with homemade Italian sausage meat sun dried tomatoes. Love Love Love the pasta! Perfectly al dente and really delicious sausages. Great sauce too!
Filetto (IDR 398.000): 200 gr. Roasted beef tenderloin with sabayon, asparagus, and black truffle. Great quality of meat, beautiful presentation, but lack in taste.
Crostata (IDR 68.000): 70% hot dark chocolate tart with milk ice cream. I found that the chocolate filling was too sweet for my liking (even for my sweet tooth), but other than that, the crust and ice cream was fantastic.
Tiramisu (IDR 68.000): 1936 recipe mascarpone cheese cake with espresso coffee. I’m not really a fan of the usual bitter-all mousse layered Tiramisu,but this one beg to differ. The layered mousse and coffee cake has a perfect texture, with enough fragrant of espresso.
