Worth seeking out for something much better than the usual fare

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... read 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

Dropped by this place for lunch upon arrival in Tagbilaran City due to Trip Advisor's review. What surprised me was not the food but the service. The waiter spoke in perfect English. I followed his suggestions on what to order. I was contented. Food is very good, service is excellent.

Pros: Excellent food selection, and amazing service that is unparalleled in Tabiliran City. Cons: It's a bit out of the way, but certainly worth is.

On our youngest sibling's Graduation, I decided to treat my family here. Before this establishment became Gerarda's I could still remember this as a house where the entire front part of the house was covered with a very big cage where birds used to make some noises. They had parrots and love birds in thise cages. Anyways, I booked a... More

The service here, like in many places in the Philippines, can be almost TOO attentive but the place has great atmosphere and the food was excellent. Would go back for sure.

I fully agree why this has to be Tagbilaran's best restaurant. The place's ambiance is just amazing. The food is reasonably prized and really delicious. Must try: Seafood Kare-kare, Crispy Tadyang and Dinakdakan. The place is just a tricycle away from ICM or walking distance from BQ Mall.
