A gem in tagbilaran

A must try when you happen to be in tagbilaran,bohol. Parking could be a pain as it is located on a narrow street but that didn't deter us to try their menu. I especially like their "dinakdakan" and the seafood kare-kare. It was different but really delicious. Staff were accomodating but they were... read more

I was told by a hotel receptionist that this is the best restaurant in town. Indeed, this is the best meal we had staying 2 nights in Bohol. The final bill came out to be surprisingly the cheapest in all meals we had in Bohol. Not that we look cash loaded, we came in shorts and flip flop, staff serving... More

As I saw this a must try restaurant in Tagbilaran, I immediately put it in my itinerary. Quite nice, accommodating staffs, home-y ambiance but sorry I didn't enjoyed my food. We ordered the best seller as the staff said. Had dinner last June 22 with the 2 solo backpackers I met along the way while exploring Bohol.

My son told us about this quaint restaurant and so we visited this last August. The resto is in an ancestral house and this adds beauty to it! The dishes especially Hinalang na manok, crispy crab lets, and kinilaw were the best! Price wise it's reasonable!

Had our dinner here on June 2, 2015. We arrived late (their last order was 9:15PM) but they still accommodate us. We ordered their signature dishes - and it was terrific. Food was really really good and the service is fast. Ambiance is cozy, its a mansion turned into a chic private restaurant. We had a perfect dinner that night.... More

This is our first stop upon arriving at tagbilaran airport and we were not disappointed as it appears that it was the best meal we had in bohol. The place is a bit small since it is a house converted to a restaurant, few parking spaces. The staff are very courteous and welcoming. The waiter recommended the seafood kare kare,... More

At Gerarda's you get the idea that someone turned their living room into a restaurant and started cooking out of their kitchen and serving good friends. Over the years the "living room" expanded to take over the entire first floor of the house and the seating expanded and it became an honest boutique somewhat upscale restaurant. It is local style,...
