This little restaurant just next to the busy street along the waterfront is a kind of a waiting area for people going to Coco Grove on Siquijor, which means that the place has a certain rushed atmosphere, as people are constantly coming and leaving. The food is quite cheap and not very sophisticated. OK for a quick lunch.

We went their after reading the comments on trip advisor. We were very disappointed. We order the tacos de pollo and the kare kare, a supposedly dish with peanut sauce. On the kare kare, the orange sauce was everything but peanut, the smell was weird, did not feel the peanut and there was not even a small peanut somewhere. I... More

We stopped here on two occasions, the first time for breakfast and a few days later for lunch. The stetting and decoration is nicely done and Mexican-themed. The Mexican dishes were not really authentic but still good. Both times service was very slow and inefficient.

Well , to start, a comment about their gravy tacos as someone called them....when we ate them, our thought was hmmmm, I've never had them this way, they were more of a chili Verde dish on top of taco shells.....with a side of sour cream. Nothing surely like I've ever had, being in countless Mexican restaurants in the u.s. but... More

It wasn't a great experience from the food to the service. The food was awful and it probably doesn't help that the menu is so big and challenging even for the most experienced chef. The staff weren't interested even when I complained. The only thing it has going for it is the view....enjoy a beer here but stay clear of... More

We stopped by for dinner. They had a live band so we ate inside to get the noise down a little, but the band/singers were good. Cheese cake and enchiladas were nice. Friendly staff and good service. They also have a separate bar area. There is also an outdoor dining area as well.

this place has good food reasonably prices, but its real attraction is the location. it is right across from the I Love Dumaguete sign on the waterfront which is where every tourist goes for a pic. It is right cross from the nightly balute/tempura outside eateries that are set up at 5 p m each night right next to the... More

A week night dinner. Excellent service, great food. Had the Chicken Enchilada with a side of Mexican Rice and a couple cold San Miguels. Could ask for more. I was expecting a tomato based sauce, but it came with a rich chicken gravy and it was excellent. Dressed out with spicy frijoles and a tasty and tangy salsa. There was... More

Food is relly good. Location is really good. Beer is cold enough. Prices are reasonable. But they make clear distinction between Western people and East Asian people. They treat Western customer with big smile and just ignore Chinese, Korean and Japanese customors just like local people here do. 食べ物は美味しいですが、日本人は冷たく扱われます。
