Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Be Careful with this place DON'T GET FOOD POISON! Terrible place and disgusting! This place used to be good before,but not anymore. We waited for more than 1.5 hour for our food, and they didn't bother to inform us about the delay. We ordered a...mango shake, but when it arrived at our table, we realized it contained the wrong fruits after taking a sip from the plastic straw. When we informed the short-haired lady about the mistake, she simply moved it to another table with different customers, despite us mentioning that we had already started sipping on it and she just said it's fine! The shrimp in their garlic shrimp dish was terribly rotten. We are certain they were aware of it, as the shrimp looked distinctly black in the heads. As well as their mashed potatoes, they didn't inform us that it had grated cheese on top. We only noticed it when it arrived at our table because the menu didn't mention anything or communicated to us. We waited for more than 1.5 hours, and hunger left us with no choice but to eat it, except for the rotten shrimp! The short-haired lady was rude, impolite, and did not offer any apologies for all their mistakes. What a shame!More

We ordered food (simple stir fry and salad) and had to wait 1,5 hour for our food. Other restaurants inform you when orders will take more than 45 minutes. Here the don't say anything to after 45 minutes you find out 1 dish is ready...after another 30 minutes (it was after 21:00 so to late to go somewhere else). It is all about money for them, their organising is terrible. If they would do decent preperation (cutting of veggies and meat) orders would take 20 minutes maximum. The told us it was an incident cause it was very busy, but we met other tourists that had the same experience on different occasions... Choose for yourselve.. don't go for the internet..More

I have been coming to this place for about 20 years when i am in Port Barton but this was the first time i ate here for several years, and in fact i did not recognise the place as it had been renovated. We were...attracted by the number of foreigners dining there so we thought we would try it. The staff were friendly and attentive and answered our questions. The food was cheap for Port Barton and we chose several snacks including fish strips, squid rings, french fries and more. Very reasonably priced and we returned for breakfast the next morning.More

Food was all good. Freshly made. Waited 20-30 minutes but was worth it. Relaxed local vibe. Filipino TV to watch. Fresh lemonade is very tart; ask for sugar if you like it sweet. ATM was a surprise.

We once had dinner and the next morning breakfast. My own Dish (Squid Sizzling with vegetables) tasted fine, but the order of my friend wasn't that special (A dry burger...). Service staff seems not interested and cannot give helpful information about dishes. The breakfast was...really disappointing!! (Taste not good AND they didn't serve butter and jam to bread. When we asked for it, they just replied that they don't have at the moment.) So we ate plain, dry Toastbread in the End :/More

Very good food at an affordable price. We had a couple of meals here because we like the buzz and simple ambiance. Food was well prepared by local ladies and done well.

We were waiting too long for a carbonara pasta that was small and sweet (?). Ok for the price tho, supposed that the local food should be better.

This place would be a 3 were it not for the price and portions Staff ok. Place a tip. Noisy building works on going when we were there. My lord they’re slow in the kitchen Food was actually reasonably - ate here a few times...because of the costs! Main stars are for portions (one will easily serve 2 people if you’re not a fat cow) and cost. You’ll no doubt end up hereMore

Me and my boyfriend ate at this restaurant three times during our stay. It is cheap and the food is good but on our 3rd time eating here there was maggots in our side salad/ on our plate. When we told the staff member she...just took it away and didn't even apologise or take it off our bill. It was almost like this was a normal thing that happens. So obviously, we won't be returning.More
