“Good service but burn dish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

We ordered 4 dishes, the BicolExpress it was burn and the coconut milk was over cooked and it was so much oily,but the other dishes was good. IT was recommended to us by Cebu Exclusive Holiday thanks Gadie it was perfect although one dish was burned..

“Great tasting local food, reasonably priced!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

The service staffs are very courteous. Do try the crispy shrimps, and don't forget the crispy pork - the skin is really crisp and the fats melt in your mouth (people with cholesterol issues be warned). Despite the location and nice setup, the price is reasonable.

“Poor Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

If not because of your yummy food, this place have rotten like a dead rat. Service is not friendly, too slow an very inconsistent. Are they having problems with manpower? But i have to say i am a great fan of the food here, just simply amazing. But please please please improve your service, you have a long way to go. Just speed up your waiters and everything will be perfect.
