Very good meal, but extremely overprice. Be ready to pay western price in this restaurant. Cool environment, clean, fast service and nice customer service.

By far the best meal we had in Cebu. The breakfast was a delight and the risotto to die for. And the steaks... Just love their food which is cooked with love.
