Delicious Food

We went there for dinner around 7pm but had to wait for an hour for the food to be served. The only consolation is that the food is really good. Some staff are also not attentive but there is one (do not know her name) that is really fast, quick to serve us when we requested for water.

We decided to eat here after three days on the island. we had read the reviews about how nice the place was supposed to be, however when we entered the restaurant it felt rather uncomfortable. The staff did not say hello nor did they offer us a drink even though the restaurant was pretty empty. We sat down on a... More

The restaurant had 4 cottages at the front where you can dine in while seated on triangular cushions that were popularized by Thailand. The setup reminded me of a similar experience we had in a resort in Bali. Menu consisted mostly of Filipino food. Taste and quality was okay.

I had the pesto pasta, and my husband has the honey mustard chicken, we both really liked it. Beer was cheap. Service was slow, but such is the case in the islands! If you stand up and ask, servers are happy to help.

You know you're in trouble when a thing as simple as french fries is served after 15 minutes and you're the only customer. Did they had to call the cook somewhere? The thing is it happened twice and the quality of the fries differed. First time it was crispy and then on the 2nd try it was soggy and oily... More

I ate dinner there one time and the food was just not up to par. I order their seafood pasta, and there was barely any seafood and the sauce tasted like it was ready-made and came from a can. I ordered a few tequila sunrises though, and those were good. The servers also lacked energy and were just not that... More
