We loved the food here my partner ordered the ribs and they did not disappoint!! It is very well priced and a lovely atmosphere to dine in! The staff were all so welcoming and friendly they really went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our meal! If we were in puerto longer we would definitely have returned!

Seriously one of the best ribs I've tasted in my life. Sauce was great. Meat fell off the bones. One thing to note. Almost every night the power goes out but they can still make their ribs. When we went, my mom ordered steak and that took 25 min longer because of the black out. But other than that everything... More

After arriving in Puerto Princessa early evening on the 10th of March we checked into our hotel the "Purple Fountain" and felt hungry... luckily there was a restaurant within two minutes walking distance from the hotel. First impressions good, its open bar with grill are the first things you see when you enter. The staff are friendly and the service... More

Agree with all those who said their ribs are deliciously tender coming off the bone. True! We have not tried anything else! After trying so much beer in Palawan we finally tried a bottle of red Australian Shiraz and the price was reasonable. Nice restaurant and bar!

Ribs were tender and small portion could feed 2. Need to order the sides as the ribs came without any sides. Price was reasonable. Cod steak was also huge. Atmosphere was nice.

Awesome food, we went two days in a row as it has good portions and good value. The men ordered the ribs and it just fell right of the bones. There is something for everyone.

Nothing worse than tough ribs, and these were far from that. Fall off the bone tender! Very smoky flavor. The sauce for me wasn't as savory as I would have liked it, but it's very good because the meat is so very tender and it is tasty. We sat outside and there were some mosquitoes but the staff put up... More

This place had fantastic service, (the best in our 2 week trip), excellent delicious food, reasonably priced and the staff were great. A great garden out the back with garden lights and candles. Definitely worth a trip.
