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,...

Not my first time to eat here, but I have notice very amazing improvements. The wait staff are more attentive and accommodating. Someone greets you when you enter and leads you to your table. This did not happened on the 1st time, so, this is really a very good improvement! Hands down. Food is still delicious-however, the ripe mango shake... More

Had great beef "kare kare" (peanut butter sauce). Very crowded (we went on a tuesday) but staff was very nice and made the wait OK. Inside, it was pretty noisy do to the several big family tables (locals come in number here too). Recommended.

I am a resident of Tagbilaran, Bohol, and been to most of the restaurants in the island, Gerarda's is the best place to dine in town, good food and money's worth. My visitors can attest to that too and will second the motion!

This is a family house converted into a resto. The tables are huge but there is still ample space in the dining hall. There are nooks and crannies that make the place conducive to quiet, undisturbed eating. The food is tasty, well balanced menus, and the waiters are eager to please.

I was drawn by the reviews on TA. The location shown on the map was a bit inaccurate but I asked some locals and found it eventually (it's about a block further out of town than it appeared to be). On entering, you know you are not in a regular Pinoy eatery. This place has real traditional style. I asked... More

I went to this restaurant a couple of years ago but my visit in Feb 2015 was a bit disappointing. I found the service slow and the food only ok. I think standards have dropped but I will give a it another go soon as all restaurants have off days.

If you didn't know it was there you'd wonder where you were heading. The hustle and bustle down the side streets don't prepare you for this amazing restaurant. As soon as you walk through the door you could be anywhere. The food & service were fantastic and Jade the waiter explained all the dishes to us and answered any questions.... More
