Good burgers

Ate twice and we enjoyed each time we are here. Their kri truffle burger is to die for as well as their pork ribs.

Being a diver, I visited the Dumaguete area twice already, and always found it hard to find decent, affordable and healthy food ! KRI offers all of that ! What a great find (during my last stay)! And although I only stayed one week in Dumaguete this time, I had dinner no less than 3 times at KRI ! The... More

Frequent diner. Haven't yet had a properly cooked burger here. Some very significant consistency issues cause me to lose trust. Almost international standard of quality if they can actually provide a consistently and properly prepared meal.

Limited menu but the food is good. It's rare to find a good restaurant that is not swamped by tourists in Dumaguete and this is one of them. We always say, if it's a place where local people eat, then generally it's pretty good.

We we're impressed by the layout and it's fixtures; staff are courteous and attentive. Food servings are sufficient and we loved the presentation of our food, like in a 4* hotel. Taste is above ordinary but not really excellent because it's not expensive for Manila standards. The only downside is a detached "public" toilet although clean but not at par... More

This is also one of the must-try restos in Dumaguete. They have lots of nice paintings of featured artists. I think you can purchase the paintings, too. Beyond the paintings, they serve the best bleu cheese bacon truffle burger in the country. You have got to try this one if you love juicy, tasty, meaty burgers. Get ready to open... More

Our amiable waitress said that the place is owned by foreigners who have settled down in the city. Hence the cosmopolitan ambiance and different food selections. Their signature dishes (like pork ribs and carbonara) are excellent but servings are a bit small for huge Filipino (and Western too) appetites whiles prices are not really cheap. Good for special occasions and... More

Kri is a stones throw away from the iconic Silliman University and about a 5 to 10 minute walk from the Boulevard. The menu offers a new twist to Dumaguete cuisine. Their steak was tender and juicy and cooked just how i like it- medium well. You should try the creamy goodness of their smoked salmon sandwich. I was slightly... More

Really nice restaurant, with good vibe. We didn't know the restaurant extended at the back and this was a much better place to sit than in the front, but the whole restaurant was just what we wanted. I had a great meal but my partners pad Thai was dry. So a bit mixed on the food, but I'm sure this... More
