Magic Pan Pizzeria

Reviewed By IndoStocks - Yogyakarta

The decor and ambience have reached close to bottom.

Since a visit several years ago, part of the awning has collapsed. The walls are stained and cracked. No other diners. Staff appear friendly but seem unconcerned about the dusty and unkempt appearance of the place. Obviously little to no management interest in upkeep.
My pizza and pizza of guest were ok. Basically just a thin base plus topping. At over 70K Rupiah incl. tax & service this is one of the most non-hotel dining options in Gorontalo. Nasi Goreng was inedible. Mixed juices were heavily watered down and expensive at 20K and above.
We won't come back.

Best tuna satay I've had. Well, actually I never had one prior visiting Gorontalo. This restaurant is located near a dive centre, and recommended by the owner. Great sambal! But if you are not used to spicy food, take caution.

Pia Saronde

Reviewed By Saritondi - Jakarta, Indonesia

We visited Pia Saronde several times to buy souvenirs. They sell not only Pia cookies, Gorontalo specialty, but also Kerawang handcraft ranging from clothing, fancy handkerchiefs, t shirts and bags. All in 1 place. It's also very easy to find the store. It's right in front of Maqna hotel and Mall Gorontalo.
