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

Was really looking forward to this based on previous reviews and planned our friday night to go here. Toilet was filthy situated next to kitchen. Zero atmosphere, specials board was same as menu so why special? Had to walk out unfortunately

The food here is great, although a bit pricier than other places. The Cordon Bleu is absolutely amazing, with the XXL sandwiches at a close second. Big portions and good service at a premium price.

One of the restaurants recommended by Tripadvisor to visit in Panglao, you'd think French and they offer Pastas and Burgers? The chef/owner is very nice, he's actually Swiss Italian and takes pride in his dishes, he comes to every table to ask how the food is and do a little small talk. The bleu cheese burger lived up to the... More

A quaint place where we had a pleasant dinner - away from loud music and a crowd. The food was good - carefully prepared. I'd come back here when I'd have the chance!

Terrific food and massive portions.they will also make food to taste and for under 300 pesos per head excluding drink is terrific value. Also there is an exceptional bakery around the corner in the direction of the beach, I recommend grabbing a few brioche type goods for 5 pesos each to snack on if you're going to catch a ferry...

Really tasty and good food. Pasta was great and steak was tender. Really worth every peso spent. In my opinion narrow menu was great and best way to keep all ingredients fresh and tasty. Might be little hard to spot the place if driving main road but surely worth visiting. ( close to Helmut's place )

This small and simple restaurant serves excellent and comparably less expensive food. It is located right on the corner before entering the Alona beach where many of disappointing restaurant wait for their guests. We had Bruschetta as starters and gamba pasta and chicken cordon bleu for main course. Both main dishes as well as the starter were very tasty. The... More
