“Noisy, rude and quite dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

Food on display should be covered and not exposed. This place is not for people who love the beauty of soft music, soft voice and staff who do not scream until their tonsils are out.

“Affordable option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

AA BBQ in basak, lapu-lapu city

I was visiting the city and meeting old friends and invited them for dinner. They chose AA bbq (basak, lapu-lapu city). They already ordered when i arrived. Chicken and pork bbq, sotanghon guisado, and 4 other dishes.

Foods were above average in quality and very cheap. I was just disappointed that they gave the bill too early even if we did not ask for it yet. It was just like we were asked to leave quickly.

Over-all, this resto is a very affordable option and very accessible.

“Flies everywhere!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Having late lunch here, less choice of seafood some bbq sticks available at the counter. When i was going in to the counter i see alot of flies sticking on the fish and i didnt ordered but ordered the squid and mix vege. Deep Fry Squid nearly overcook but still ok, i hope the management should look into the seafood as seeing alot flies surrounding the seafood distract people appetite. Make sure came early to prevent dissapointment!

“Fresh seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

I love how they cooked the calamares, it was not overcooked, they were just right. The prawns, tanguigue and shell fish were fresh. One of the best sutukil's I have tried so far in Cebu, but the place is not too clean. The CR is also smelly and dirty.
