“Go For The Belgian Cookies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Went once to get a takeaway of the famed Belgian chocolate cookies (they NEVER disappoint) and was curious about the menu. Since we were short on time, we decided to return the following day for lunch.

Ordered the onion soup (very good), Caesar salad (very good as well) and the pork ribs (passable).

Not cheap for Cebu, worth visiting maybe once or twice for lunch, but outside of the cookies, I won't be too fussed about missing the lunch fare. Maybe will try the B&B and write a review on that.

Until then...

“don't search for don Merto's at Google Maps”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

don't search for don Merto's at Google Maps, since you'll end up in the wrong place! Try to make sure you'll tell the taxi driver the right exact address! our driver couldn't find it!

“Great food, great deals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Don Merto is the restaurant attached to Casa Escano, where my family stayed in Cebu. Their breakfast menu is excellent, and I'm told by my brother in law that they have excellent burgers. During the week they have daily eat all you can specials, so my brother in law and I tried their US roast Beef for 288 pesos, and it was absolutely a steal.

Even if you're not staying in Casa Escano, Don Merto is definitely worth a visit!

“Gotta love their juices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Okay, so I am in love with their Mango and Watermelon juices. 2 glasses are not enough! The breakfast menu included in the room accommodation are reasonably good and enough to fill our tummies to start the day. No complaints on the taste. Not that stellar, but it is still good. for our 2 nights stay, i ordered the 2 slices of spam (day2) and 3 slices of bacon (day3). this includes 2 eggs (however you like it cooked), rice (plain or garlic), and juice of the day. i really liked them!

The serving staff are as always accommodating and helpful. :)
