Actually it was the best restaurant we tried in the Philippines. You need to book early (a week before?), we sent email to book a few days earlier but we did not manage to book a table. We came early to the restaurant and were lucky to get a table for two (many people without reservation were rejected). We ordered... More

Seafoods galore! Perfect interior design to give you a feel of eating in bahay kubo. There is a mini studio of paintings inside. The food was exceptional. We ordered shrimps, crabs, tempura, kilawin (tuna ceviche) and grilled squids. We were satisfied with everything we ordered.

We are glad we booked to try this place. The interior design is absolutely charming and artistic, romantic and stylish but laid back. We had a table with floor cushions to sit on, which the kids loved. There were also other tables with chairs. Our tour operator earlier in the afternoon was critical of their style of cooking, but for... More

Very original! Food so great and very affordable. Highly recommended resto in Palawan. For those with despicable tastebuds, this restaurant is best for you.

Very very very nice place. The ambiance is perfect. YOu will have to remove your shoe during your whole stay. Menu is simple, we ordered the Day Set Meal and it was perfect - a little bit of everything.
