I went here based upon recommendations from some locals I know. They usually have given me good tips on places to eat, but this was terrible. Very cold food and warm beer. They even managed to screw up the rice which I thought was impossible but it was so dry, our dog wouldn't even eat it.

The food is not so good and over-priced. The staff are not accomodating and the place is dirty and not good for a memorabl dining. Will not recommend this to my friends nor business associates.

It's a low to middle range restaurant where they serve Chinese food and are specialists in seafood. I only eat the pork, chicken, rice and vegetables . The first meat that was served was nearly cold (pork), and this should be warm. The sweet and sour chicken dish did not taste very much like sweet and sour. Unsure what's missing.... More

Excellent food and service. Also has function halls - great for Christmas parties, weddings etc. We always take our visiting guests there to show what Tagbilaran can really offer.

This is such a terrible place. The place might be popular to locals by sanitation in this place is terrible. They lack hygiene. I don't recommend this place to tourists, especially to foreign visitors. You'll find other good place to eat in Bohol. There are a number of restaurants and specialty food places in Bohol. Bohol's food is great by... More

Went here for lunch. The place is a bit dim and my first impression was that this place is past its prime. Nevertheless, since we were hungry, we went ahead and ordered tinolang manok, kinilaw na tangigue, grilled squid, grilled pork liempo, hinabos na hipon and tortang talong. Only the tinolang manok and the tortang talong had any taste. The... More

This restaurant is very bad. Bad service (nobody did speak any english words) who didnt know whats on stock, bad food which did come step by step so we did not eat together. Restrooms were in a really bad condition which made it impossible to wash hands. We wouldn't go there again.....!!!!!

JJ's seafood village near the Bohol seaport is not a good place to dine. Food is not outstanding. It lacks identity and "taste." You won't be happy eating here. There might be some in the menu that can be a favorite, but most of it tastes bad and tasteless. It may be affordable but not a priority place to visit... More

They recommended their specialty, patatim, which they couldn't produce in time because it was frozen so i had to order something else. The waiters couldnt talk to me. Didnt get hot tea.
