Convenient location on Rizal Avenue as well as clean and well presented. The staff were very helpful and the food was served super fast on the night that we dined. They seemed to be at about 50% capacity and they could handle this easily.

We were disappointed that our first 2 options of entrée were not available (duck crepes and empanadas) but very happy with our mains. We ordered the adobo overload which was tasty but the duck randang was the real winner. It was hard to go back to eating the other meal after this one. It was loaded with huge chunks of duck that was so tender it would break apart with a fork.

Cocktails were fine, nothing extraordinary but satisfactory and reasonably priced. It was easy to get a trike out of the front after.

The only factor I didn't like was the huge TV in the room. It seemed very out of place and didn't contribute to the atmosphere.

My partner and I went last night after reading the reviews and we were very impressed about the selection of food and high standard of service. We had the duck crepes for entree and were also able to order the mussels as a entree dish as well which they understood. Both were delicious and for main we had the mangrove chilli crab and duck ran dang. I was more impressed with my crab than my partner was with his duck but still good. The garlic and herb rice was a beautiful change from the typical rice flavours. The only thing we we were not satisfied with was the dessert, it was a disappointing way to finish the night. I had the French apple tart which was cold and pastry was soggy, obviously from being previously made and placed in the fridge for too long and my partner had the creme brûlée which was nothing too special. Other than dessert, we were very happy with the food.

We came here twice, once for dinner, and second for afternoon/evening before our flight departed. The staff let us get comfortable and leave our luggage around while we charged our phones and ate their amazing food!
Everything we had on this menu was amazing and everything is well priced.

There's a great selection here and I can't rave about it enough. Cocktails are mixed and poured at your table, food, while delivered in Filipino time, is well worth the wait. The kinilaw is a must for starters and pretty much anything on the mains is incredible.

Décor - open walls, so expect mosquitoes at night. Modern décor.

Service - spot on, friendly and attentive.

Food - just okay. Trio of empanadas was the best item we ordered. Not greasy and the filling tasty. The adobo overload - which prior reviewers seemed to like - didn't taste that good to me. The adobo was dry, the fried rice too garlicky, and the pork chicaron was rancid. The rolled pork was dry. We didn't finish the food, disappointing.

Taxis - wait just outside, so it's easy to get back to the hotel or the main strip area.
