We came here a few times when we were in Bohol. The best dish we had was the jumbo shrimps with a spicy sauce. I apologize I can't remember the name, but it was amazing (photo attached), simply amazing. It's not a cheap restaurant, but it's reasonable. They have a 2x1 happy hour in beers and Tanduay ice, good ambiance,... More

Had at least one drink here nearly every night of our stay. Happy hour makes the drinks very reasonable and there is a good band that plays every night it seems. Shame they took down the dancing skeletons after Halloween! They were a great addition to an already great place!

Relaxing here was a nice was to spend the afternoon. Food was tasty and plentiful. Service was slowish, but friendly. Drinks kept on coming - cheapish, with specials during the evening. Relaxing and watching the world pass by. Was a nice way to spend a few hours.

Eat here quite often and do enjoy the food but service just gets worse all the time. It is a shame you have to flag down or yell out to a waiter or waitress, they simply walk past you if you dont. Food is good I will admit, great location, good music, just very slow service or lack of service.

Ok this place has some wonderful staff and great food. The staff remember my name from last year when I was there. From 7 Pm each night except Sunday night Frankie and his band play.

The pork belly is definitely good..same with the wasabi grilled tuna..service could be better..at times it takes forever to get the waitress' attention..a bit pricey but the food makes it worth the visit

Do not come here if you are plannig on eating. Not worth the price. Almost took an hour for the food to arrive. Probable main focus is their bar. You'll notice a lack of people compared to other ones beside here. This is for a good reason.
