My family and I went to this restaurant last Sunday and overall, we weren't satisfied. The food was well presented but it was really bland and did not justify the price. The place doesn't have an air conditioned area. Although the owner was very friendly, will give this a second try soon.

Thank DomzDy

Hi,
I am so sorry that you and your family were not satisfied.
Regarding the prices, you ordered the most expensive dish that we offer in the resto like for example the ostrich steak and the salmon, we cannot lower down the price. The older guy said that the food was good but expensive...well, next time...check first the prices then you have the option to sit down or walk away.

Thank you.

Nice and thoughtful fitout.
Menu selection was pretty reasonable.

Points awarded for effort and offering overseas fare.

Quality of produce is good, but service lacks professionalism and venue could do with further ambience.

My seafood dish wasn't cooked properly.

May return in the future to revisit

Hi Anthony,
Thank You for your review.
Unfortunately, I really cannot remember you ordering seafood in our resto and if it happened, I normally offer commercial gesture like giving discounts or change the food being ordered.
I just remember one young filipina who did not like the squid and complained But I think that was just a caprice because when weve eaten the squid it was good and tasty, so we changed the squid to pork belly even if there was no problem at all.
Anyways, thank you and we will try to be more professional the next time you come.

Upon the recommendation of a friend, we tried out this restaurant and we were very pleased. It's. Great place to have excellent food with a relaxed cozy atmosphere. A lovely place to relax, partake of good food, good wine and excellent conversation with family, friends or just as a couple. The owners are very hands on & the menu changes daily, so you can't get bored with the food. I recommend this to travelers and locals alike.

Tried this new restaurant with a couple of friends and it was a blast. First the ambiance, not really top-notch but cozy and invites conversation. The owners are really friendly and goes out of their way to make you comfortable. And the food, really, really good.
