Food was good and staff was really nice, in particular Nico!! If you're looking for a good desert in Alona Beach, get their chocolate mousse !

We are not concerned with a restaurants decor. It need only to be clean, have good food at a reasonable price. So, while this restaurant is very, very basic, that was fine with us. It's the other two that caused this poor review. I ordered the same meal (beef tenderloin with potato and veggie) others on this forum raved about... More

You probably just pass it the first time. Very small restaurant on the main road of Alona beach. They only offer a small menu which is not that expensive. The staff it attentive as everywhere in the Philippines, the food is great for the price. Unfortunately I visited it during a blackout due to a typhoon, can't say anything about... More

The food was fantastic, best food i had at Alona Beach. The waiter is very professional and ensures guests feel comfortable. Fantastic food, interiour and location could be better, but nothing...

Visited this restaurant in the dead quiet of the afternoon after a massage after 2pm. It certainly felt like afternoon siesta time on the beach. I had a great special of the grilled prawns and rice and one of the best mango shakes on the island. I wish I had time in my schedule to come back here again on... More

I like that the owner is always there and tries to chat with the customers. This allows them to get insights and improve in any way possible. I also like how the dishes are relatively affordable, but is prepared thoroughly. The ambiance is also very cozy and gourmet type - but simple :)

Looked at the reviews on tripadvisor and boy did it come through. Had an absolutely stunning meal. Don't let looks fool you though (we saw another couple walk out of the restaurant, a huge mistake on their part). The cream dory and chocolate mousse were the highlights, tiger prawns were excellent, my sister wouldn't even let me taste the chicken... More
