Let me start off by saying that this restaurant is in no way fine dining. It is, however, a great place to get a lot of food for your money's worth. At php299 per head for the buffet, you can't really beat that. The deserts were not anything special, but the majority of the food was definitely worth it. One... More

Offers wide variety of food and is very good for groups to enjoy the day. Try everything they offer, it's really worth the price.

Crabs, tuna, scallops, noodles, squid, sushi, vegetables, and if you're lucky, they bust out the lechon. At about five dollars for the buffet dinner and around six if you want bottomless soda to go with it, this joint is almost unbeatable. Of course, this is no five-star restaurant. It's not a hole-in the wall (the branch I visited was in... More

It's my very first time to dine at Joven's Grill and guess what? I will never go back again and I will never ever recommend them to anyone who has not yet been there. My goodness! If you think that you will be having a good time and experience plus a good meal, you should better think twice! Well..what do... More

Out of curiosity, I visited jovens together with my wife not so long ago. Mmmmm... All food was awful. They have this siomai (meat ball) That looks like every meat that were used were recycled. Sweets were of too much flour I guess... Almost everything just simply cannot be eaten or cannot be chewed. Price was cheap though... You get... More

I have been to the one in Park Mall and the one in IT Park. Each had their own strengths and weaknesses, but overall they are well worth the price. I'd say the one in IT Park is a bit better, but the Sushi sucks. The one in Park Mall did not fill they tray soon enough!

The A.S. Fortuna outlet is closed. I tried the one at Parkmall. Its just equivalent to Cabalen's, which I rated as an eat all you can fast food outlet. Joven's grill's buffet is just like that. Don't expect much, as its a cheap buffet. If you are after a tummy filler that's very affordable, Joven's is an attractive option. But... More

At P230 you already get to avail an eat-all-you-can lunch buffet. Add P40 and you get a bottomless iced tea. The variety of food's just lovely, from seafoods to pork, meat and steamed menu. Great array of desserts too. We went there and it was like a moment of nirvana, looking at all the delicious food offered. We visit the... More

Visited the Joven's Grill branch at the IT park, Cebu. arrived at 1830hrs and it was very busy, packed with locals enjoying Sunday dinner. Despite this the dishes were regularly refreshed providing a good selection of local fish, seafood and lechon. Excellent value at 220php ( £4 / $6) per person.
