We (4 adults) had a superb 3-course meal here last week. The fish, in particular, was simply but excellently cooked and served; the staff were all friendly and helpful. And the bill was a very pleasant surprise!

Really enjoyed our meal at Proper Gander, first class presentation. The Lamb Adobo, their signature dish, was excellent. This place would rival good restaurants in the city.
