Very pleasant experience

Very good food, good atmosphere, considering it is a small cafe. Staff overworked, but service is commendable if you compare to the service in the rest of the city.

Very good food, well prepared, ate here 3 times in a month, great location, off the noisy embarcadero but across from Silliman U. Good menu, different tastes. Had lunch each time as we stayed in Valencia. Service good but a bit slow, but what isn't in the Ph.

A good find in the city…. thanks to trip advisor. It was a good dining experience, having a clean ambience. It was even better than your number 1 on the list of Duma restos. I was so impressed by its cleanliness of both food and the place. the servers were also very attentive and courteous. The place was not so... More

My husband and I stepped outside of our dive resort for one night while staying in Dauin. We chose KRI based on good TA reviews. We were surprised to find that we were eating in a small, basic cafe, and it wasn't until I asked to use the restroom that I realized there was a whole other area to KRI... More

The ambiance of the restaurant in general is very classy yet the food served to us didn't meet the expectations imposed by the ambience. I ordered Spicy Shrimp and Tofu. I really liked the perfectly encrusted tofu and it has the right spiciness. But the shrimp distorted the flavorings as it seemed like the seafood was stuck on their fridge... More

From the service, plating.. to the tasting, this restaurant is a must when visiting Dumaguete City. The variety of choices and reasonably priced meals were impressive.

Whenever we are in Dumaguette, we eat as much as we can at KRI. It's truffle, bacon,blue cheese burger is the best hamburger that I have ever eater - anywhere. The menu is innovative. so there are some items that are not to my taste. My wife did not like the vegetarian wrap (she's mostly vegetarian), but my middle son... More

KRI is a small boutique restaurant that seems more like someone's hobby than a full fledged restaurant. The menu is very small, almost more like snack items. Half the choices we made were out of stock. If you only eat there once, you should be able to find one thing you like. It will be presented in a very appetizing... More
