Last month, I went together with my colleagues to a little village in Cianjur, West Java for a location survey. It was already lunch time when we were done with our survey. Since the village is not so far from the floating restaurant in Waduk Cirata (Cirata Dam), thus we decided to have a lunch there.
Cirata Dam's reservoir.
Waduk Cirata is an embankment dam, located about 17 km from Cianjur and 100 km (62 mi) southeast of Jakarta. This dam serves several purposes which are hydroelectric, power generation, aquaculture, water supply flood control and irrigation.The area of Cirata reservoir has a surface are of 62 km2 (24 sq mi).
To get to the floating restaurant, we had to charger a small boat with a capacity for 10 people. It costs Rp. 10.000 per person for a round trip.

Aww... there's a little cute cat :)
No chairs. Customers have to sit on the floor.
Fresh young coconut - Rp. 5.000
Morning glory with garlic - Rp. 15.000
Grilled Tilapia Fish - Rp. 30.000/ kg
Sweet soy sauce with birds' eye chili, shallot and tomato - free
Rice - Rp. 3.000 /person
Simple.... but totally delicious! :)
Btw, if you are already hungry and don't want to wait for about 30 minutes of the fish being catch and the food being prepared, it will be wise enough to call them first and order what you want to eat so when you arrive at this floating restaurant, the food is ready to be served. But then, if not you don't mind to wait, during the 30 minutes of waiting for the food to be ready, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery around there; you even can do fishing or feeding the fish.

Our boat already waited for us to bring us back to the land.
