Demonstrating the Filipino spirit of resiliency, Dream operates with no semblance of the recent tragedy that befell Tacloban.

There is also a bakery with fresh bread and cakes, and be sure to try the Dreamtime fried rice. We ate here several times.

We liked this restaurant so much, we ate here for dinner and then again for breakfast in the morning! There is a great selection of local dishes, good value and delicious. Service is very good, the staff are friendly and attentive. Relaxed, laid back atmosphere, would highly recommend

The place is good, comfy good for some drinks and eat for friends and family. Suggestion is they should have some security guards on the place. Beggars keep coming in and annoying guests. Hope this not happend again.
