I have been here four times and the experience was always excellent. The dinner was fantastic with true Filipino food better than most restaurants in the Philippines. Excellent and fast service was provided with a big smile by out waitress, Beth. Highly recommend this restaurant.

If you are in Cairns and crave Filipino food (especially BBQ and grilled items) this is a great place. Excellent food at good prices. all items on the menu are very good and super tasty. Sadly only open for the evenings on Thursday to Saturday.
