Limited food menu but everything we ordered was good! Loved the ambiance as well. Must visit when you go to Puerto Princesa. Note that you will have to take off your shoes before entering dining area so best you wear socks if you don't like walking bare foot.

People have rated it as the top restaurant in this city. They must all be non-vegetarians, of course. Here is my review as a vegetarian: Caution: If you do not look carefully after dark, you may miss their signage. The neighboring restaurants are more visible than this one. You may even suspect that the map may be wrong when you... More

We came here for a late dinner after our tour which was supposed to have dinner included (the tour agency or the hotel messed up and they refunded us 345PHP for it...) so we came here. It's open till 11 pm. No wait. Pretty big venue. Nice, clean atmosphere. You take off your shoes before getting seated. We ordered the... More

We got the chance to visit the place after we arrived early from our underground river tour. We felt lucky for being accommodated being walk-in guests only. The place is awesome and the food was great. Such a wonderful experience!

Great food. The staff are friendly and they serve the food faster than i expected since the place was full of diners during the time when we went there.I especially like the fish and the shrimp dish.The place was very clean(that's why you have to take off your shoes before entering the restaurant).

This place is without exaggeration a gem amongst the good restaurants in Puerto Princesa. The menu is smaller but that should be considered as a sign of quality. Order a few dishes, stick them in the middle of the table and dig in! It's yummy! The atmosphere is also special. Recommendation: We managed to get a table on the right... More

This is the type of place that you take off your shoes to dine at. It's a nice touch with a small Menu that always changes. This is our 3rd time here. This time it was set menu style with great seafood selections that were all cooked very well. It's affordable but make sure you set a reservation which they... More

At first glance the menu seemed very limited, but the dishes we opted for were very well presented and very tasty. Vegetarian dishes are offered as well as various seafoods. It was nice to see beers from a local craft brewery on the drinks menu. The setting is very pleasant and, despite it being very busy, we found the service... More
