“One of the best restaurants in Boracay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We visited Boracay over Xmas and this place was always packed! And rightly so. The food is great. We had the fishcakes and pitta bread to start and the fishcakes alone are a dish to return for. We also then had the tiger prawns with the coconut risotto, and the seared tuna with spaghetti. Really very good. There is also a great selection of desserts. Service is fast and friendly also. Good value for money also and great for families also.

“Yup, its good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

After reading all the reviews on Trip Advisor we had to check it out. I had the spicy chicken wrap and the fruit plate. What can I say, the wrap was great and the fruit plate was a fruit plate.

The nice thing about this restaurant was that they really knew about service. It was like being in a first world country. The food was great and service was very fast. There was about 10 people in the back and maybe 5 servers in one small place.

The two knocks on the place is that the food has US prices and the portions seemed pretty small. That being said, I will be back.

“a big disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

so we read many reviews about how good this cafe was, and decided to try it out for dinner on one of the evenings.
we ordered the tuna salad, and spaghetti meatballs. the mains were passable but nothing to rave about. we expected more from the dessert since the reviews mentioned that it was the highlight.
sadly, we were disappointed with the chocolate flourless cake that we ordered.
the cake was too hard, and was no were near as tasty as others described. we also noticed that the couple at the next table barely touched their desserts which included the lemon tart.

perhaps it was an off-day for them. but we wouldn't recommend it.
many other restaurants around that are much better.

“Great food & Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

One if the best places to eat in Boracay. There's a wide selection on the menu, especially for breakfast. I ordered the chicken ceaser wrap which was lovely. On the downside -My partner ordered the steak sandwich and thought the meat was very grizzly. Also we went for a late lunch and some of the items on the menu weren't available.
