I like the cosy atmosphere of being in a former residence lined in cool trees and converted into an updated retro-resto design with historical feel [pictures of General/Ambassador Carlos P. Romulo, related to the owners of the place, adorn the walls]. Dining in local fare that has also been carefully prepared takes you back to past family gatherings where heirloom recipes are carefully brought back on the dining table. Try the kare-kare, lengua estofado, spicy gising giving, bulalo, crispy pata and lots more. Did I mention, they serve good cocktails, too so you'll want to linger in this place.

They serve Filipino comfort food. The servings are a bit small if you are a group of heavy eaters. All in all the place is clean, food is very neatly presented. The quality is good as well. There is a nice ambiance The place is very spacious and can accommodate big groups.

A serene place to have a very good dinner with your family. All the food taste good, staff are always ready to serve you with a smile and a very competitive price. One of the best homey restaurant in Quezon City that is worth coming back for.

halaan soup is the best, also try sisig wrapped & chicken imbotido, friendly attentive staff, black & white decors & photos on the wall, at first it seems like a town house turned into restaurant, very homey ambiance though pricey but worthit. highly recommended.

I frequent the place with friends even with guests. I love their crispy pata and kare-kare.
I brought my family and got too disappointed with their chicken lemon grass,ordered by my youngest son (at the moment). The chicken meat was so hard, stiff..seems that it was kept for so long. I hope that they can do something about it...the rest of the food are fine.
