Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I love the vibe of this restaurant! The owner or manager is very welcoming and warm. The restaurant is nicely decorated and comfortable. Both my friend and I were going to have their special which was stuffed squid, but the owner suggested us to order...two different dishes so that we can share and try more food. He is right! We ordered a sizzling dish and the stuffed squid. Both dishes were delicious! The squid was fresh and tasty. The sauce was yummy! We stuffed ourselves and left with happy stomach!More

Really great food and of course perfect service from Benson. We came twice in 8 days and can definitely recommend the restaurant. We tried sweet’s sour chicken, soup and stuffed squid. All dishes were perfectly cooked and arranged and the taste perfectly balanced. It is...an amazing experience to be at the restaurant with all the different flags from all over the world- we loved it, thank you Benson☺️More

With our first visit the owner, barman, waiter, gofer, kitchen hand, buyer etc.aka Ben, was as smooth as silk and catered to each & every need we could throw his way. From get-go his stuffed squid literally "stuffed me up" as I shared another full...portion with a friend. We waited two weeks for the giant thickly sliced freshly caught tuna which was sufficient to feed two hungry males. ALL meals were way above expectations and Ben's passion & dedication was evident throughout I think 6 visits in 3 weeks . As Ben is adamant about procuring only the freshest ingredients it took a while to secure the tuna but once we consumed we knew why we waited. The venue is small, cozy, romantic and unpretentious offering EXTREMELY GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY. To me the BEST restaurant in Sabang and whilst all locals could lead you to the venue its hidden down a narrow alley next to a live band venue. Local & some Imported alcohol was available at all times & THE RED HORSE BEER was always chilled. We were so satiated at the end of each meal we never once considered desserts or coffee so I am unaware what was on offer as dessert. As we had really pressurised the owner for KINILAW { Philippines Ceviche } it was a tad rushed and all the flavors had not pulled through but we could however taste the freshness of the fish. RELAX is definitely on the cards for our next visit.More

We loved this restaurant so much we came back again during our four day trip to Sabang. The manager, Benson, was incredibly friendly! We wanted seafood and to try the house curry--he graciously offered to create a custom dish with both. The sizzling sisig was...an absolute highlight! We ordered it again on our second visit along with another dish at our request, grilled squid, which was fantastic. This is a terrific family owned generational restaurant. We highly recommend!More

Our waiter enthusiastically explained the cooking technique of various local dishes for us to try. We were impressed with the freshness and quality of our meals. Hint - restaurant is hidden down a small alley, worth it!
