I ordered fajitas and this plate of food was horrible. The only reason I ate any of it is because I was terribly hungry. The so called flour tortillas were clear wet stale flat things but in no way a flour tortilla. They have no idea what salsa is and the meat and peppers were covered in this extremely salty... More

We went here for a quick lunch before we depart for Siquijor island.. We tried their steak and baby back ribs..its really good...If you love steaks, ribs and Mexican food, go check it out, price is not very expensive, it's a great value for money.. TIPS corkage fee will be given if you eat foods not from restaurant..

Located just about 20m away from the Rizal Boulevard. We checked this restaurant since it's quite laidback and reminiscent of old Manila cafes. The menu is a combination of Mexican-Filipino with some American influences. We ordered their baby back ribs and lengua. Presentation-wise, the lengua did not pass the instagram-worthy test but the taste is surprisingly delicious. The ox tongue... More

We were pleasantly supprised as having eaten at many so called Mexican restaurants in the Philippines,this one was good! Chillie com carne was about right as was the rest of the order.The portions were generous,in fact we took out a large portion and have it to the parking guy who was very pleased,and tucked in straight away.

What a joy for my taste buds. This atmospheric restaurant serves really delicious Mexican food at reasonable prizes. Go for all the tacos, burrito and fajita varieties, you won't be disappointed. I wish I'd gone there more often ;)

The fastest and most efficient service i have seen in the Philippines.The food is good, but not amazing. Athough the diversity of choices proposed is really compensating. The service is amazing.

I have been to moon cafe many times and I regard it as one of the best places to eat in Dumaguete. This occasion was a family birthday and despite the restaurant being reasonably full our meals came out super fast. The food is always tasty and for a Filipino restaurant the meals are a big size which is welcome... More

Mooon Cafe is part of a chain. Quality control is not good among the different outl;ets. For me this is a "not again" (unless a friend insists). But maybe I am just not a Mooon Cafe type person. For me very ho hum menu, over seasoned and spiced and overcooked. But if that's the kind of food you like, give... More

I wasn't really that impressed. Maybe because I was expecting too much because of the reviews I read from here. :) The place was good though. Very cozy. :)
