A French Chef? Well, he's actually Italian but lived in France...A Chef? I doubt it. Cordon Bleu seemed to be deep fried and was like you'd expect from a frozen meal. We were the only people there for dinner....hmmmm. Ambience is nice, but so is under a palm tree. Go somewhere else.

Awesome cooking! Can't ask for a better way to end my trip to Bohol. Look out for that chubby Blue Elephant outside the bamboo house along the street near the turn into Alona Beach. The Blue Elephant is a cosy little place opened by Darus, a retired young Italian ex-....let's just say he's a man with stories, and a passion... More

Over rated and over priced for poor quality food. This restaurant is off the beach and has a good looking menu with a few recommendations in the usual places.

Authentic French dining in Panglao...lovely little bistro with great food and service. I had the chicken cordon blue and it was fantastic. The side dishes were also yummy. This is a cosy little place that I would definitely return to.

Ate here for breakfast (croque Monsieur) and dinner (dory fillet). Both were really delicious. Dinner menu is great and such brilliant food. Both meals were piping hot which I've rarely found since we arrived in the Philippines! Staff are friendly, atmosphere nice! Mosquito coils to keep mozzies away. I would definitely return!!!

Some local scuba instructors took us here for lunch. It was undoubtedly the best lunch we had in Panglao

The restaurant looks no different then most other shabby but characteristic places in Alona. The food on the other hand is nothing like the rest. Very good! Thanks to trip advisor so that we found this place.
