“Excellent place to eat in renovated old Spanish home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

Having just finished several months of aid work in Tacloban we were looking for a good meal but what we got was GREAT. At the suggestion of a couple of local lady friends who where showing us around we tried this place with no more info than our friend had heard was good.

We all had a combination of steak to pasta along with soups, salads and wine. All the food was done to perfection. The service was top notch never an empty glass. All for great price too. At the end the owner / chef came out to talk with us. Great touch.

All this takes place is a nice renovated old home I am told is over 100 years old. Get in here soon as assume will need to make a reservation soon if want a table. Great place to relax with friends or a first date.

“The Best In Cebu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

The best Restaurant in Cebu, and in my top 5 of all restaurants ive been to in my life, yes a big call, but its true.
Attention to detail, unsurpassed.
Restaurant, an old home (hence the name circa 1900), and brought back to life so wonderfully. The food selection was wonderful, and in no rush, which i like, if you want food faster go somewhere else. I restaurant of this quality does not need to rush, you go there to enjoy not only the food but the ambiance and the whole wonderful feel of the home.
I call it a home and not a house as it still has a lovely homely feel to it. Simple but very elegant.
The staff are forever watching your wishes and only just a glance at them and they are at your side asking what they can do.
The food is wonderful. Beautifully presented and the taste is just right, nothing to much of anything that is not needed. We had
Garlic prawns and Deep fried Camembert for entree.
Main course was, Fish of the day blackened with a wonderful sauce and Lamb braised with a Moroccan flavor.
Dessert was blueberry and date cake and i had the frozen liquor.
Wonderful Italian Pinot Grigio white wine.
The restaurant was almost full and nothing was a trouble.
10/10.
