The restaurant is inside an ancestral home I believe. The place is very spacious, they even have a space for events apart from their main dining area. We ordered snacks but based on their menu, they have alot of choices. Prices are reasonable. I ordered the Banana Sesame and Dalandan Juice, I super super like it. Customer Service is good... More

Excellent musicians and excellent dancers. I have been here several times and the place never ceases to amaze me. For me, this place is of greater value than those buffet restaurants out... More

This is highly recommended to everyone: locals, "balikbayans" And foreigners. The cultural performance by our local artists maintains our heritage. The historic venue and the tasty buffet combined with a reasonable price was a bonus.

It serves Filipino-Spanish food with limited options. I brought a friend here not for the food but for the cultural show. Both are enjoyable though. It was a chill night. At the end of the cultural show, audience are encouraged to try the Philippine's national dance- tinikling. It's cheap. You can check their

The meal is a buffet which features salads, soup, meat, fish, vegetarian and vegetable dishes, along with a generally local dessert (we had caramelised bananas). During the meal, there is a local dance show, which is funded by the local tourism office which shows different types of Filipino dancing. Really nice relaxed evening, mainly with international tourists! Beautiful building -... More
