One of the best restaurant of Tawala

Nice place and very good dishes. The restaurant has a real chef. Take your time and stop here for a great moment. The chef knows how to cook and create a wonderful moment.

Went with my family for dinner. The place looks kind of run down and not very inviting but food might still be good, right? However, the food was a letdown to say the least. Extremely poorly thrown together hamburgers with some yucky sauce?!? on top, grated carrots?, grated cucumber? and a tired slice of tomato. The meat looked like it... More

Dont let the interior fool you, this place serves really good food. Fresh, tasty appetizer, try the mixed platter for two, good range of mains both seafood, pasta and meat and a superb crepe suzette. Cook is Italian, he knows how to cook! Went to saffron and linaw restaurants too, this one cannot compete fully, but close for a fraction... More

Burger was very average and Croque Monsieur was just about edible. We finished our food, only because we were starving and would have eaten anything. There are better restaurants..choose somewhere else!

This restaurant is not what it seems from the outside. On offer is an array of French and asian cuisine, as well as a variety of tasty desserts. As my partner is vegetarian, this was one of the few options available in Alona Beach. Staff were friendly and serviceable. The pasta was perfect, and crepe suzette was a show in... More

This place is not really that French or special at all. "The" item on the menu is burgers and that's about it. My dinner companion said the burger was good, though, but I think it should take more than that to get great ranking in TA. Also the restaurant itself wasn't really inviting. The staff doesn't know the dishes so... More

We had a shared tapas platter for starters that was ok. And the tenderloin was also well cooked. The wine by the glass was drinkable. Not much effort have gone in any of the interior fit out from the restaurant. ......but what the heck we are in bohol.

Amazing! We've tried bruschettas, cordon blue, pork loin with blue sauce and then with mushroom sauce (yes, we came back the following day), and the burger with bacon. Each dish was delicious! Highly recommended!

I only drank wine and beer here, so I can not evaluate their food. However, I really enjoyed comfortable atmosphere with kind and ready to help staffs.
