A week night dinner. Excellent service, great food. Had the Chicken Enchilada with a side of Mexican Rice and a couple cold San Miguels. Could ask for more. I was expecting a tomato based sauce, but it came with a rich chicken gravy and it was excellent. Dressed out with spicy frijoles and a tasty and tangy salsa. There was... More

Food is relly good. Location is really good. Beer is cold enough. Prices are reasonable. But they make clear distinction between Western people and East Asian people. They treat Western customer with big smile and just ignore Chinese, Korean and Japanese customors just like local people here do. 食べ物は美味しいですが、日本人は冷たく扱われます。

I ate here one time. Ordered burritos which was one flavorless, mostly rice burrito cut in half. I think they used BBQ sauce. Not impressed. Dirty bar. No air con. Great location though and servers were friendly but you don't have to go far to find better.

We came here several times as we did a bit of grocery shopping in dumaguete while waiting for the ferry (before we head back to my dads place in siquijor.) Great waitress's, super fine dining and food made with lots of love. You must visit if dumaguete is a stop for you!!! Last time we visited was in September 2014

Food and service was far below average. I had to get up and go to the bar to order refills for our tables drinks twice!

Ate outdoors and had to take half of the meal home because it really was a lot to deal with. If you can help it, eat indoors as there are itinerant 'students' who come up to you outside asking for help with their studies in exchange for trinkets.
