One of their crew is pretty and that's the only good thing about this restaurant LOL. The restaurant is accessible to the road and has a nice ambiance. Their food is kinda bland for my taste, the pancake has no taste at all. Bam-i and chicken curry is so-so. Danggit is the only food that has a taste in that... More

We've been to Bantayan Island this September 2016 and Stayed at nearby Kota Beach resort. The resort own restaurant closes very early so you have to look for some place to eat your dinner. We saw this good place and we were surprise that the foods are great. Not so cheap but worth your penny. We ordered a lot of... More

But over all it's our... More

We came here for a few drinks after dinner at another restaurant and it was a good atmosphere with reasonable priced drinks. We then came for breakfast the next morning and were quite disappointed, the continental breakfast was 4 bits of barely toasted bread. My boyfriend ordered a vegetable omelette and it came with only mushrooms. So overall food wasn't... More
