“Several Pleasant Evenings Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

My friend Simon turned us on to this place. Jerry, the owner is a real character and serves up great wood fired pizzas and weekend specials. Breakfast is fantastic. I am not a real big fan of restaurants in the Philippines in general, but Garcia's measures up well and is an oasis in an otherwise desert (when it comes to a decent eating establishment here.

Thanks, Jerry, great to know you, thanks for your excellent service and hospitality. See you again.

“Go for the Pizza and Beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

We went for the pizzas and beer and this place did not disappoint.

It's a no-frills place so don't expect linens. You're seated outside in monoblock tables and chairs. When you enter, the wait staff will quickly seat you and give out the menu. They will be attentive to your needs the whole time you're there, i.e., even before your beer is consumed she will quickly ask you if you want another one.

Pick out your choice of pizza from the menu (I'd recommend the Meat Lovers) and order cold draft beer while pizza is being cooked in the brick oven. The wait won't be long. Pizza is served straight from the oven to your table. Dig right in and order more beer.

We wanted to try the chicken wings, unfortunately the deep fryer needs to be repaired. Such a shame as I figured wings with beer is also an excellent pairing.

Forget about the lasagna, wasn't memorable at all.

“Excellent Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

Worth the trek out of town if you're in search of a classic Pizza & Beer joint. Had the Meat Lover's Pizza at P350 (the selection focuses on a very few options) and Beer of course. Draft Pilsen P70 compliment the meal as well.

Great, fast service and a funky ambiance anchored by the brick oven. Definitely an ex-pat sort of joint.

“pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Very close to town, the establishment is clean, but very small, there is little parking space for a car. the Pizza was very good, the refreshments nice and cold. Staff was friendly and efficient. A good place for a snack.

“Fabulous Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

The most attractive bar staff in town, perhaps the world, make this a most unexpected pleasure. I will be here every day from now on.
