Personally, I like their mango milk shake which is really good and their own version of the infamous halo-halo! Also, they have a wide selection of "no msg" food especially the Mexican food they have. Must try!

We chose to eat here since it's the first interesting establishment when we entered Island City Mall, that is, no expectations on our part at all. Yet we were surprised with the food! There is a wide variety of selections in their menu, all of which look good, but it tastes better. Their calzone is one of the best Italian... More

This restaurant is easy to find since it's just near the entrance of the mall. I don't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised with the good food. We had Chicken Panini, Fish and Chips and Banana Milkshake. The servings were generous enough that I was even able to take some back to our hotel. Service was fast... More

Went there with my Mom for a quick lunch. The place is small, most of the time its packed! It took a long time to get the food to your table. However, the food was really great. I also love that they don't use MSG. It's good when you wanted a break from eating Filipino and seafoods. Will surely come... More

Located in the Island City Mall, about 3 kilometers from the town center, Frankie's has western style food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Popular with foreigners living in Bohol.

Was in island city mall yesterday for an event, and was looking for a coffee shop to pass the time. We actually was ordered from dunkin donuts but noticed a cafe beside it. Frankie's caught our eye sight. It kinda looked different. It's a mixture of American, Italian, Greek and some other cuisines. Long story short, we tried more than... More

We had the chance to meet the owner, while we dined here! Super friendly and outgoing guy, provided us with amazing service, first place to have Sriracha sauce since we got to the Philippines, and more importantly NO MSG! The burgers, coffee, and sweet and sour chicken were all great. For the price, you can't beat it either. Will definitely... More
