The place is well-ventillated. Fresh air, good ambiance. We really love the ribs and the fries. I think it's homemade. Also, I ordered avocado shake, it's really good as well. I wasn't able to take pictures of the food, because we're really hungry but they're really good.

We read in an article in Smile from Cebu Pacific that this is a place to eat! After checking in the hotel, we had our lunch there and the food was so delicious! My father-in-law who is very difficult to please was so amazed because their food was really tasty and delicious. Most especially the Sinigang na Tanigue sa sampaloc... More

Hungry? This is the best place to have a real meal. Ordered Baby Back Ribs and Laing- Yum. Then have some beer end your meal. They are really good with this two! I just wish they would improve their toilet. I also request that they have some fly traps around as they have loads of it...

Recommended by a local of Coron to try their ribs. Only P250 for half a slab good for 2-3 persons. Tastes good, tender. We just got to wait longer for our food to be served because it was dinner time when we got there, packed with diners. Good bulalo too.
