My boyfriend and I arrived at the resto a little short of 11AM and ask one of the staff for a table for 2, he said lunch is also ready in the buffet. The place is really nice and coze and crown are even nice too, even if the restaurant is full at lunchtime it is not very noisy compared. Probably because most of the guests are family and not a group of teenagers. The buffet cost 495 there isn't much choices compared to other buffet restaurant but for the price it is well worth it. We loved the baked tinapa it was just perfect. Although there are some food that tastes awful (the dessert i dunno if its mango or jackfruit but it tastes like tempra) and the kaldereta and kare-kare isn't that good as well, it is ok though. Other dishes is just fine.

The place is nice and cozy where you can relax, chat and have great food with your friends or family. They also have good interiors. The staff are polite and accommodating. Their food is good and a bit pricey.

When we lived nearby 9 years ago, we always wanted to try the place then but never got to so we decided to try it out. It looked like a quaint cafe on the outside so it was a wonderful surprise to see that it sprawled below the cafe to a nice cozy restaurant that had balinese-inspired interiors. Great for pictures even without the view of Taal. They had these rustic couches and tables among a garden of plants and bamboos. Just really hard to get a nice table with a couch.

As we didn't know there was a buffet below, we first ordered the chicken empanada for a snack, which I think a lot of people don't know is quite good. It was one of the reasons we came back the next morning when we ordered it again with their varieties of pasta a la carte for lunch.
Yes, it's true. Their service is the big setback. To get a menu, it takes 15 minutes. To get your order on the table, 20 minutes. For people, with not much patience, I suggest that you think twice. But all in all, it was nice place and the food was still worth it.

For coffee and pastry lovers i will not recommend this place. Horrible barako coffee and their store is way overpriced. I tried the house blend and tablea that i bought and very low average comparable with the price that i paid for them. I suggest as well that the management train their store staff to be more pleasant.
