Huge servings, welcoming ambiance

Came here with friends for dinner. The give huge food servings which we did not expect. Recommended to try croc sisig, fisherman's soup, and tamilok among others. One thing that bothered us was that the Tamilok wasn't cleaned well; it still had some sand inside.

Nice place,but so so food. Pricy and inconsistent with the food. Its a hit or a miss there's no in between. The staff is great and caters to your needs.

It's a very large patio style place so your experience might vary with your seating location. The food was all very good, good sized portions and reasonably priced. Not sure if they were short-handed or our waiter was training for the Olympics, but he literally ran between the tables the entire night and he did a great job. The atmosphere... More

From the name, this is a good place to chill out with friends, have a nice dinner, and chit-chat over some drinks. Wait staff / Servers are quite attentive.

An attendant immediately got our orders and so we ordered crispy pata, pancit canton, platter of plain rice and blueberry cheesecake for dessert. It was... More

Great for a cold beer and nibbles, I wouldn't recommend dinner as the dishes were all quite greasy. The service was very fast and efficient.

Lots of good reviews, lots of people eating, but we didnt enjoy too much. Although to be fair their are not that many good option in PP anyway. More of a big outside bar than anything.
