Overall the food was good but the servings are not very large and you will most likely want to order rice. As others have mentioned, be prepared to wait as your food is prepared. Don’t be turned off by this as you will not be...More

The food wasn't as great as when I ate here last December. I went here recently with some colleagues and bragged that they serve great food. I felt a little bit embarrassed when we finally tasted our food. It wasn't bad but it wasn't that...More

Like they say, good food takes time, and it is worth waiting for it, every time when I am in Naga this is my favorite restaurant, and keep on coming back. If I was do you should do the same, great ambiance and great food

Good food and good ambiance. Ordered the baby squids although it comes in a small serving but it's worth it except itll tease you to crave for more. Great appetizer! Ordered a heavy meal and loved it. Would love to try out everything else!

Heard a lot of nice things about Chef Doy's from Manila-based friends. Apparently, it's been featured in a lot of food/travel blogs. Been here a couple times and I frankly won't recommend the place. They had this unli kinalas promo for meryenda but don't bet...More

Greetings! We acknowledge your comment / review which is very much heard and appreciated. Thank you. We are very sorry about the "unli" Kinalas. The dish, as you know, is a Bicol specialty. The demand for the "unli" offer turned out much larger than expected....More

Love the frozen braso de mercedes! I love it that everything is cooked when you order. Of course that would mean you'll have to wait. Kare kareng lechon kawali is also a favorite. Everything is good actually depends on your preference. Place is very clean...More
