We wanted to try filipino food, and chose this based on trip advisor. It's a small restaurant so good to reserve ahead. Our waitress was very friendly. We liked almost everything we ordered. I particularly liked the vegetable dishes.

On Sunday nights Lamesa does a special, pre-set menu that is set up in front of you on a banana leaf and to be eaten with hands only. It is an awesome experience and the food is to DIE FOR! I've been for Kamayan three...More
