We went there for lunch and the place was pretty empty, the service was extremely slow and when the food came it was the wrong order. My sizzling squid looked great when it arrived but it was overcooked and tough. My wife's vegetables somehow included beef and her tuna main arrived way after the rest of the food. Thank goodness...

ice cold beer is perfect with pulutan, place to be for a relaxing nightcap. you can stay at their cozy native huts or stay at the main resto if in big groups. Car service is likewise provided if you happen to stay in one of the nearby hotels.

Had dinner at the grill with family, food is good, big portion size, waiters very attentive, nice place and ambiance...the bad side: cats.....cats that roam around freely and pass under the seat.....and the service charge which by cebu city standard are high..:(

This place is great, especially if you want to get away from the resort hotel food down the road. A true Filipino food experience. Great fruity drinks, huge menu...go with local friends to help you choose a sampling of many delicious flavors. Allow plenty of time, because this place with its little open huts fills up and it is bigger... More

If you have any food left get it takeaway and give it to the hungry kids outside... More

Jan. 13, 2014 I just read some reviews about this restaurant that were negative. If I'd read them before we went there last Jan. 9, I would have avoided this place. I'm sort of glad I didn't though. We just happened to stay in the guesthouse across Maribago Grill and didn't want to go far for dinner. I guess people... More

Awful food, terrible service. Avoid this place like the plague. All the food seemed to be at least a couple of days old. Chicken was actually suck that was rock hard and inedible. Drinks never came, no service... never again!

A totally horrible meal with poor service, inexcusable food and when I tried to say what's wrong I was brushed off. I certainly won't be advising anyone to go there

Lied our first dinner in Cebu! A taxi driver told us to come here for dinner! Loved the traditional feel of everything to eating on banana leaves! ... Watch out for the young children in the exit who are selling things.
