We had 4 dishes, and 2 of them were warmed up. The soup and the Lumpia(which is a big spring roll) were fresh. The pork adobo and the chicken were warmed up food. For my opinion , I cannot reccomend this restaurant and give it only 2 out of 5points.The pineapple with the pork adobo was out of a can.

Horrible service from beginning to end. The chicken was good, but I would never go back. Avoid at all cost. The staff could care less, and this was the only negative experience in Bohol, people are usually so friendly.

Payag is good, but nothing special. Has all your typical pinoy dishes that are a touch more expensive. I felt the wait staff ignored me when I tried to order. This is also a chain restaurant.

We had a very good dininv experience the first time we visited some 2 years ago so we really saw to it that we visit again this year... but i guess it will not be the same things next time we visit Bohol... The place (BQ mall) was not well maintained. Serving was not as good tasting as it used... More

This restaurants has an ambiance like you are in the early 1960's or visited your lola's vintage house which I enioyed. Food here is very tasty however it seems that they have a few staff to accommodate the needs of everyone during the busy periods. There's no one available to attend with us and we even asked for the menu... More

Taking the advise from Lonely Planet to eat here and we weren't disappointed. Tried the sizzling gambas, the calamaris and the spring rolls. All really good to eat. We had a 'tsokolate shake': this could have been better: just chocolatepowder with crushed ive. Still, the food made it all up!

We came at 4:30pm. They were open but lights were off; it could be more welcoming... But Food was very good- nice juicy chicken barbecue, fried chicken bottoms and pinakbet! Yum-yum! Aircon was nice and cool. Refreshing buko juice!

My fiancé and I was like eating dinner at our grandparents mansion house. This place is a must to visit especially when you are a first-timer at Tagbilaran, Bohol. The BINAKHAW is a wow-oh-so-yummy I cannot resist kind of viand (or simply I just love kilawin so much haha!) Averagely recommended! 👍🏻👌🏻

This restaurant is known for their BBQs, and they did not disappoint. The BBQ was grilled upon placing the order. The marinated meat is tender and tasty. A delight for a simple dinner! We followed the waiter's recommendation and also ordered binakhaw (kilawain na isda-fish). It was delicious - a great blend of spicy, sweet, and salty flavors coating tender... More
