The food is great, particular to the Puerto Princesa area, crocodile, woodworms and other "normal" dishes. Four dining areas, efficent waiters, nice ambience and average prices.

We went here for meryenda+early dinner since it's our last day in Palawan and we have to catch our flight. We ordered yangchow, sizzling beef burger in mushroom sauce, butter garlic prawns, blueberry cheesecake and iced mochaccino. Compared to other restaurants we tried, the price here is a little higher, especially the seafoods. We were surprised that the prawns we... More

This place is where the tourist buses set down. Lots of staff who are attentive and efficient with a menu with something to please everyone. We ate "buttered chicken" which we assumed was a missprint for "butter chicken". It's not. It was 'battered" chicken. The sort you might pour sweet and sour sauce over. pretty funny and we didn't complain.... More

Liked the dish on steam fish but not the other 2 dishes ordered. The crab dish was not fresh and the crocodile minced meat served on hot plate recommend by the waiter was ordinary.

This place is known for many good dishes. To name a few, try their crispy pata, tuna shoulders, gising-gising, tamilok and bulalo. The place is often full especially over the weekends. So make sure to reserve your seats.

I ordered just one dish, the breaded tamilok but was completely satisfied. The food tasted good, the service was good and the ambiance was just right.
