I'm making a review for their Bistro. Salads. Main course, Side dish, Drinks. Desserts. Too many to mention. I am pleasantly surprised by how much their menu has grown and improved over the years. I love their Wagyu steak, callos, their Green Earth shake and of course, their Date and Walnut Daquiose cake.

They have the best pastries in town. Cozy place with a decent wifi connection. You wont get bored sitting here for hours. They serve a little bit of everything --i love their lasagna, kebab, and sizzling fries.

Best butter and chocolate silvanas I have ever tasted! I just wish they can provide thermal bags so the silvanas can stay frozen for longer hours just in case of flight delays.

The moment they saw you walking in their place they will immediately go to your table and hand you their menu. While waiting for your order to be served they make sure that they gave you water.Their cakes are the best.

Frequented by many expats and filipinos, their pastry treats are decent if unremarkable, but the coffee and teas, although varied, are nothing to rave about. Average fare, is somewhat annoying when their selection of teas is less plentiful because of the usual filipino refrain, "out of stock, sir."

During our stay in Dumaguete City we have been to this restaurant a few times and tried different meals each time. Each time has been a friendly and welcoming experience with fresh, tasty food in very reasonable quantity. Several times we have asked different questions of the staff about specific areas of the city and they have gone out of... More

I had lunch with my friend at Sans Rival Bistro, just next to Sans Rival Cakes and Pastries. Their grilled beef back ribs is good - and is very affordable. But I came here for their sans rival. Everyone should try it! It's really really really good!
