Authentic French dining in Panglao

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.

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.

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.

One of Panglao's best places! Also amazing for vegetarian - just ask the chef, he will prepare delicious dishes for you. Very flexible, fresh and friendly kitchen! Enjoy your meal :-)

A little shocked at how this could be rated one of the top restaurants in Panglao. The majority of the places on the beach are horrible (save the breakfast at Lost Horizon). Was excited to finally check it out after seeing reviews and ratings for years. Had the Dory Fish and Cordon Bleu and Steak, and was under-impressed. The Dory... More
