Description: We went to this restaurant on 13 April 2011 and it had opened just a week beforehand. The decor, both inside and out, was novel and really tasteful. Food was delicious and service great. Even the owner came up and asked us personally how we found the food and service. I'd highly recommend a meal here!

We had a late lunch here and food was good. The place is quirky and has some art on display. It also has delicious cakes- definitely worth a visit!

This is one of the restaurants we keep coming back whenever we're in Palawan. The ambience is cozy with musicians playing at heir small stage. The restaurant is quite small but they provide al fresco dining, which I think is a lot better than dining inside the resto. The Asian fusion menu is above average for me and prices are... More

I know many reviewers like this cafe. I had mixed feelings about it. The burger was good, great bun and juicy. Salad with poppy seed dressing was good. Chicken burrito was dry and very small for the price. The vibe and decor is weird and something's were down right creepy, I.e. Dolls heads removed from bodies and hanging on art... More

We went to a few places to eat. But this was the only one that we went back to. The decor is nice and very cozy and the food is really good too. I had a good grilled cheese and the wife loved the calamari and french fries. Good pumpkin soup. All around... our favorite place to eat.

The place is a must-see/try. The art is interesting and the food is quite good. If you're going with friends, a bottle of their below zero beer is a great way to unwind.

Great ambiance. Just have a small place but very cozy to stay. Just don't visit at around after lunch. I love all the art works being displayed. All made by local artists.
