Good place for eating

The place is nice and quiet. We came to this restaurant for a dinner. The food is affordable, but the quantity of food per dishes is weak. Service is good.

I like that it's out of the way. The food is good. I like the ambience. We went there after we had a fun-run and the food serving is more than enough to satisfy a hungry runner.

Stayed in the adjoining guest house (more to come on that awful experience) and had breakfast here both mornings. Coffee was terrible, portions were very small. Quality of food was okay. Service was quite good.

I loved looking around & the wall photos. The place is charming and quiet & good place to unwind after days of doing training. I have stopped eating beef but was persuaded to try the burger due to the reviews I have heard & read. And the reviews are correct. They serve one of the best burgers and if I... More

First meal in the Philippines. Actually (and unfortunately) the food was quite forgettable (however, I do remember the waiter constantly clearing his nose, yuk) - prawns were the best thing that we ate, smooth with flavour; the pasta bake, nothing to it really, and what there was was too salty; beef soup was also too salty and the boneless ribs...

First of all the waitress I greet on arrival did not even notice me. Then second, 2 meals which I choose from the menu,, one of them was Beef Lengua, were not available. Apart of that, the menu looks nice, a good mix of various meals. So I decide for a very common Pancit, but it was almost tasteless and... More
