Whether a group or a couple, she has a warm welcome for all. The margarita was probably the best that I have ever had... read more

Juliet made us one of our favorite meals in the Philippines. She was such a great host and definitely kept the party going. If there is one place you want to go eat after a great day with the whalesharks, a night at Bar-acuda is the place you want to be. Also try her Calamansi drinks, its quite strong but... More

The place is located at the end of the main road, inside a lush green, all made by natural local wood. just about 7 tables i think. The absolute best fresh fish you'll find in the philippines, cooked by the wonderful hands of the lovely and lively Juliet. the pasta pesto is delicious, and just let juliet tell you what... More

Spend New Years Eve here and had an amazing evening. Awesome staff that make you feel at home. Supposedly the food is also the best of the region but we did not have the opportunity to test that out. Definitely a place to drop by!

Had dinner as this was recommended to us by other travelers in Donsol. Wouldn't want to eat here again, although fish was quite good. The female owner of this place is very loud and chatty to some tables, not to others. She appointed two adjoining tables to us, only to remove them after a group of 12 suddenly arrived which...

You walk up a garden path to reach the restaurant which is located beach front.. I arrived early to be greeted by the owner (Juliette) She is an amazing person, has this glowing personality, worldly knowledge. We had a cocktail together before anyone arrived. Which was really nice to ask her about Donsol life and take in the vibe of... More

Great food and great engagement by the owner Juliet - makes you feel like home! Must try the massive prawns! Ask about playing Scrabble, it's kind of a big thing!

I am not new to the restaurant scene. My friends and I always travel to try different foods in different places. Working with Versace before also allowed me to dine with the finest restaurants with the finest chefs in Manila, Hong Kong, Singapore, Perth and a lot more. For one, I have eaten lots of time at Chef Jamie Oliver's... More
