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!

I fell in love with the place during our city tour. We went back at night time to have a bottle of beer and to enjoy the live band that they have whO played oldies but goodies songs. Their customer service was great. The food was ok as well as the cakes. The place was awesome! They have palm reading every weekend to complete the ambience of being a gypsy lair. They are featuring artworks of some local artists.

We had lunch on 11 Feb. The decor is arty and fun - the decorated box in the picture is how they bring your bill and take payment. The food was just great - the pumpkin soup was especially delicious, and the crispy beef with garlic rice and egg all day breakfast was a nice taste of Filipino home cooking. The coffee was the best we had in Puerto Princesa. We would have gone back but we didn't have time. We would definitely recommend a visit.

Should you be in Puerto Princesa and love cake, visit this cafe, the coffee, a choice of beans, excellent espresso, lovely Americano for my wife, but the cakes, oh my. Moist, chocolaty, and even a purple one. The ambiance is nice too, some interesting art on the walls, paintings on the tables and the entrance made up like a gypsy caravan, plenty of parking and some shopping available in the immediate area. This is a really nice spot to spend an hour.

If you're in Puerto then definitely check out this little gem. Opened by a local artist who is intrigued by gypsy culture, this little bar/restaurant really does look like the inside of an Irish gypsy caravan!

The staff are great, really friendly and helpful, Great food and good value.

We had a really lovely evening here and would recommend you hunt this place out and experience it for yourself
