Description: We went to this restaurant on 13 April 2011 and it had opened just a week beforehand. The decor, both inside and out, was novel and really tasteful. Food was delicious and service great. Even the owner came up and asked us personally how we found the food and service. I'd highly recommend a meal here!

Seeing the reviews on the internet I thought you ate well, although the dishes are not bad are not anything fancy. The place is nice to see, but there's nothing pretty close and you have to reach this purpose.

I'm glad that I never missed this place, truly artistic, the designer of this place has a really unique imagination, doll combs inside a frame? Chop chop barbie dolls,paintings. It's like a gallery too. They made me a very special drink not in their menu and I super loved it Its made of chocolate and coffee blended in ice with thick choco syrup,and we had some pica picas. The food were great!

We had coffees, and dessert (but the rest of the menu looks great too). Ask for the mango flambeau with home-made ice cream! Live music really sets the atmosphere, and the staff go above and beyond to make sure you're comfortable. Best part if that you can relax away from the chaos of Puerto, with very reasonable prices, and be treated like royalty. Great selection of art work inside as well, and really friendly manager.

The food and service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable. I loved the ambiance of the place with the wonderful artwork on display. I met the owner as we were leaving and she was very personable and sincerely interested in our experience.

Located at Mercado de San Miguel. It's right beside stores that sell Palawan pearls & delicacies. They offer Filipino, Vietnamese, Thai, Spanish and Mexican cuisine. They have fresh fruit juices and smoothies alongside spiked cocktails; English and Oriental teas, and regional and home-grown cafe delights.
There are 3 or 4 tables inside and additional 4 or 6 tables at the Al Fresco (outside). The place is crammed with art done by local artists as the owner herself is also an artist. The art pieces are for sale. Just ask the waiter for the price. The food is good and very affordable. Staff is polite and very accommodating. The waiter serving us even spoke fluent English. He informed us that there’s a live band during evenings for entertainment. They are open all week. The weekends are more special ‘coz guests can experience a palm-reading session—very reflective of the restaurant’s theme. Good place to get together, exchange stories, enjoy food and coffee.
Not the best place for kids, though. The place is a tight squeeze. Restless as they are they might break some glass tables or figurines on display.
