It is supposed to be Filipino food but I guess with French cooking influence. Food was very good. You have to make early reservation or you wouldn't get in.

Been there because very famous in Puerto Princesa. We were very surprised for the setting and for the atmosphere, a little bit less for the food. Menu is very small and nothing special. I felt uncomfortable going to the CR barefoot, even if was clean I didn't like that. Go there for pictures.

My friend brought me to this restaurant for dinner. Was surprised when I enter the main entrance, the place is well designed and decorated with fresh fruits and tribe wood craft. Enjoyed the foods and the seaweed served

Almost all of the customers are busy taking pictures around the restaurant. Every corner of the place will mesmerize your eyes. You will not get bored while waiting for your order as you will be busy taking pictures. Food is great, I love everything that we ordered; taste is excellent, plating was done in perfection, the shake combination is heaven.... More

Their best dish was the fish that had coconut cream and curry sauce. And their price was reasonable! Will surely go back there when I have another chance to go to Puerto Princesa.

I liked that you have to take off your shoes and walk barefoot in the restaurant. The food itself was OK, a little bland for my taste. Menu is quite small also so not too much selection. But it's a popular place so get a reservation.

You need to reserve ahead of time.... A restaurant full of art, very entertaining to the eyes as you wait for your turn to be serve. We have enjoyed the food as they have a different twist to the flavours of the usual filipino cuisine. There's not much on their menu, but they mainly serve seafoods and filipino dishes. We... More

This is a place one shouldn't miss once you are in Palawan. Be sure to book or to reserve before going there. The unique interior and the one-of-a-kind experience that you are barefooted upon entering the restaurant. The itself is very affordable and delicious.

Had a great time at this place. They don't let their guests even their staff to use slippers or any footwear. So you have to remove your footwear by the door. They have baskets where you can place your shoes/sandals by group so that you don;t get confused or still need to find your shoes somewhere. The place was so... More
