“Go for Dumaguete Express”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

We accidentally visited the place when we couldn't get a seat at the Treehouse. Nothing special about the place though. The in-house pianist can be too loud/irritating. The staff is ok but a little preoccupied. The food is average, with the exception of Dumaguete Express (mixed seafood in coconut milk) and probably their Calamansi Juice. There are probably much better restaurants in the city with the same value for money.

“Worst restaurant ever”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Never been to a place worse than this one. Located almost out of town. Very loud music. EXTREMELY SLOW waiters. Took 40 min to get the order, even simple vegetable salad. FORGOT about cigarettes we asked for. Had only Marlboro as a choice although the menu states few options. Food was nothing special. Garlic shrimps were served in KETCHUP. Chicken was out of stock. I totally understand that this is a kinda seafood resto but if a dish exists in the menu it should be there available for order. But there was NONE meals made of chicken. My visit was on January, 7, 2014. Never will come back there, a total waste of time and money.

“Review”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Lab-as is just an average restaurant without any atmosphere. You can get much more for your money in other places. The taste of my curry was okay but not that much.

“Labas”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Food is fresh as the meaning of Lab-as, the service is average to poor, facilities are dirty, the toilet was very smelly but seemingly normal for filipino operated restaurants.
