We had passed this place many times on our way to other restaurants in Ayala,but decided to give it a try recently. Lunchtime at weekends is very busy in the mall so it was nice to find the place very quiet.I guess this is because it doesnt appeal to the Filipino or Asian taste buds & that for Cebu prices...

The staff is very friendly and attentive. They'll check up on you when you're almost done with a plate and ask if you have anything else to order and how the food was. It was clean and quiet. Good for when you have a book with you. While waiting for the food you could check out the artwork all over... More

The service is really amazing and everyone is so friendly. Get a meal of only P290 and a beer. The soup was rich. The spice of the deep fried chicken was great. The meat was tender. Only the veggie was not fresh enough. The juice are not recommended as well.

I have been here many times. I love their food, so delicious. I heard that the owner is from Australia that is why their foods are Australian. Many white people eat in this place. The price is little bit high but affordable.

I have eaten here a lot during several trips to cebu. On this most recent trip I have been disappointed and had a few problems. Over several meals I had undercooked pork medallions with blood inside, cold mash and veg with a tough steak, and prawn shells inside a seafood roulade. On my last visit I had the penne pasta...
