From start to finish, bravo!

Don't be fooled by the dark glass which obscures the view in, the restaurant is open and humming.

Nicely appointed hip industrial chic with a stainless view kitchen.

The ingredients are high quality and the food well prepared. Salads are generous and the raw cuts of meat are presented at your table to whet your appetite and confirm the quality.

The service is attentive but not intrusive. Based on the overall price and service, the seating could be a bit more private as it would not be considered romantic. Maybe best for larger groups. Overall, good value for the $$$ price.

Probably being the most expensive restaurant in Bohol I would say the food was good and the service was also..But..Im not a foodie and not trying to nit pick..I would expect at least cloth napkins instead of cheap paper..The 2 little dinner rolls that you get before main course i believe with pork gravy tasted like they were purchased at the grocery.I would have expected something higher quality..My glass of Merlot was served chilled? and quantity was very sparse for what you pay...Just my honest observation......

Went on a one week long vacation with my family and ate at some of the best restaurants in bohol and I have to say this is the best overall. Went back a total of 3 times at Smoque the food and the service were that good.
