We went there last 28 july 2013. We arrived around 7:30pm. We were promptly accommodated by d waiter and took us to our table. When I saw that the other table (where u sit on d floor) is empty. I asked if we cn transfer and they immediately cleaned d table to grant our request. Although, the staffs has an "attitude" in service, we just ignored it. My husband (foreigner) loved d set menu C. The music selection was very good, that is why we enjoyed our dinner. We paid 1600 pesos for 8 people. We will definitely come back here

If you have 4 or more people this is the restaurant to go. The boodle feast is tons of food with crabs, fish, chicken and a mountain of rice for like 20 USD. It was really good and really fun.

Maybe some of the negative previous reviews was few of the unusual events. Our dinner here although we're in a hurry , the food we ate was delicious. Price are reasonable and the servings are enough to 2 to 3 per viand. They cooked our food on the spot so you really need to wait for it. While waiting for our food we took pictures of their displays and some art works. They had a nice view but since they have a man-made pond with lots of Koi fish, lots of mosquito's are also there, I would suggest to wear nice clothes to stop those insects bugging you. They provide water and ordered drinks fast. And one more thing we use bell to call them located in each tables. We will come back to try the friday buffet...

Was surprised at all the recent bad reviews of this resto. We happened upon it while walking along Rizal Avenue and we needed a place to eat dinner. We all ordered the combo meal: veg. kare-kare with pork BBQ and unlimited rice and a creamy pork lengua dish. The combo meal sounds like it wouldn't work but it did, we all enjoyed it. The lengua was as advertised, creamy and delicious. The meals also came with bowls of nilaga soup and a small gelatin/coconut milk dessert. All in all we were pleasantly surprised how god the food was. Re service, tho wait staff not attentive, they were there when you needed them, and when called, were served promptly. And since we came at the dinner hour of 7:30, it wasn't a problem being seated. The place was also full of locals so we took this as an indicator to try this restaurant out if they ate here. Highly recommended.

Food was not that good. Poor service. You have to ask twice, even thrice for them to serve and refill your water, or ask ice as their fruit shakes were not cold enough. Background music was too loud you have to raise your voice to be heard by the person in front of you. I find the place not conducive for a family gathering as the place was kinda dark and there were a couple of tables occupied by groups of people who were drinking and were kinda loud.
