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 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.

Your eyes will not get tired of the unique pieces they have and the cool little details like the box where you place your... More

We just ate dessert here, but it was very good. The atmosphere is funky and fun and the service was great. Mac made us mango flambé at the table and it was outstanding.

The restaurant has an amazing ambiance and is very tastefully decorated with plenty to keep you occupied while you are waiting for your order. The service was among the best I encountered during my week-long stay in the Philippines - the waiters spoke excellent English and made us feel welcome there. The restaurant has an extensive menu covering both Western... More
