Krakatoa Indonesian Cuisine serves some of the most flavorful foods from Indonesia. We specialize in flavors from the area of Sumbawa Island Indonesia. Many dishes are inspired by the chef's memories and experiences as a child. Flavors of lemon grass, kaffir lime, coconut milk, coriander, and cumin meander through the menu. Krakatoa offers a variety of dishes, including vegetarian dishes exploding with flavor. All of our dishes are unique and cooked to order so they are the freshest possible when they arrive to your table. If you are looking for something new and different come join us in our cozy little restaurant. Experience a little bit of Indonesia not only in our food but our atmosphere where we have brought some items from our travels with many pictures to see and a big map of Indonesia that is sure to spark a conversation. We look forward to serving you. And please be patient with our small staff. We get very busy very quickly.

    Every meal I have had there has been a very tasty adventure. With most menu items you have to guess what it will taste like, but it has always been a pleasant surprise. This restaurant is a gem and a truly unique dining experience.

    It was a relatively small place. My wife and I ate outside. The waiter was nice and explained everything. The most important thing is that the food was amazing. It was the first time I ever cleaned out a plate at a restaurant.

    If you want to experience new flavors, then Krakatoa is for you. The spices and blends used in the cooking are difficult to describe. You must try them for yourself.

    Being unfamiliar with specifically Indonesian food, our group did our homework and read the menu before arriving. We had some great recommendations from our neighbors at the next table. The wait staff (including the owner) took their time explaining the dishes, seasonings and complimentary dishes for our group. We ordered one appetizer and four entrees shared by our group of five. No one was disappointed and we decided we will return soon to enjoy more delightful entrees. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    What an amazing dinner! My husband and I had never eaten Indonesian Cuisine before…wow! So much flavor with so many unique spices. I was worried about the spicy level but they customize it to your liking. My husband went for the hottest and it was Hot! But he couldn’t stop eating it bc of all the other flavors. We are considering going back again to try something else this week and we are only in the area for a week! A must try!

    Very lovely experience.. John, Chef Abe and their entire staff were friendly and very informative. One of my top dining experiences. If you are unsure what to order they will walk you through the menu and make suggestions.. we enjoyed a beef dish, chicken dish , seafood and vegetarian.. Every bite was a delish experience and guess what? No left overs..

    First time having Indonesian food and we thought it was delicious. Sat outside in the sidewalk. Weather was lovely. The only issue was that the reggae music from the bar next door was way too loud.

    The restaurant was a small space with a big personality. It was beautifully decorated and the pictures told the story of the owners journey to start this restaurant. Thank you John for taking the time to tell us the story in person!! Our server, David, was very attentive and accommodating (as I am celiac). The plates and food presentation was great and the taste was incredible! We got the shared meal for two and it was just the right amount of food. I would highly recommend trying this restaurant!

    My partner and I have made a tradition of coming here with our dogs when we go to the beach. We love eating outside and soaking in the Indo hot spices of Krakatoa and always try to order something new! In addition to the photos, we also ordered TAHU GEJROT (fried tofu) and enjoyed it. Service was a bit slower than usual, but we noticed lots more guests than the previous times we’ve come to eat, and it wasn’t an issue to us. As always, we recommend coming here!

    Never having had Indonesian food..we were going to order the special for 2. When we asked our server, he said, unless you two are very hungry you will be taking food home! As we were in a hotel, we asked for recommendations and he steered us to a delicious fish dish and a stewed lamb and both were absolutely delicious. Great food! Thank you.
