I would recommend this place if you're looking for good coffee and a cozy place for me time and/or to get some work done especially in the afternoons. Nearby Silliman University and a nice quiet haven for some refreshments from the chaos of the downtown area especially on a Weekday.

Decided to go here for dinner yesterday with my mom and sister and went for burgers and salad. It was scrumptious, would have wanted more variety in their sauces but all in all that was some great dinner. A definite must visit for food trips.

I am a quality over size type of person so I was not put off attending this restaurant by some of the other reviews which mentioned small portion sizes. My partner ordered a starter of tomato soup which he enjoyed, although aliitle more bread with it would have been nice. He had a beef main, which he said was really... More

We just had dinner and every single plate was perfect, from the pasta pesto and chicken fingers for our daughters to the calamaries, beef, burger or the impressive humus we had. Don't miss it.

We stayed in Dumaguete for a more than a week. We ate at Kri restaurant twice and we will definitely come again. The minute you sit they give you glass of cold water. The menu has a wide selection of quality food offerings. In my opinion it's the best restaurant in Dumaguete. I recommend the pad Thai and the Cheershee.

We decided at the last minute to grab dinner downtown and since Silliman University was on break, we thought that the crowds in this popular restaurant area would be reduced. The restaurant had parking available, and the service was excellent. I had the Ghengis Kahn Tenderloin Tips with rice, and my wife had the Back Ribs. Both were wonderful. The... More

We visited Dumaguete and this Restaurant was recommended. It is a small resto and during our dinner quite a number of foreign tourists as well as families patronized the place. We ordered a variety of dishes to share. Different dishes of pork and fish. It was ok but not something that sticks in your mind to remember. The service was... More
