Whenever we have that craving for good Lengua, this is the place we gravitate to! And if our joints and U level permit it, we top if off with its Callos. Unfortunately, these past months, we have noticed a decline in its diners so we can only hope this stays open in spite of this downtrend.

The place is very quiet and comfortable. It is a great place to have a dinner. Their food is yummy too.

We just passed by and liked the appearance of the restaurant. The menu was also inviting and the appetizer was great. But the main dish didn't taste very well. So for us not a place to go back.

The place is nice and quiet. We came to this restaurant for a dinner. The food is affordable, but the quantity of food per dishes is weak. Service is good.

I like that it's out of the way. The food is good. I like the ambience. We went there after we had a fun-run and the food serving is more than enough to satisfy a hungry runner.

Stayed in the adjoining guest house (more to come on that awful experience) and had breakfast here both mornings. Coffee was terrible, portions were very small. Quality of food was okay. Service was quite good.

I loved looking around & the wall photos. The place is charming and quiet & good place to unwind after days of doing training. I have stopped eating beef but was persuaded to try the burger due to the reviews I have heard & read. And the reviews are correct. They serve one of the best burgers and if I... More

First meal in the Philippines. Actually (and unfortunately) the food was quite forgettable (however, I do remember the waiter constantly clearing his nose, yuk) - prawns were the best thing that we ate, smooth with flavour; the pasta bake, nothing to it really, and what there was was too salty; beef soup was also too salty and the boneless ribs...
