Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We have been there with 5 poeple. I went there with my filipino family. Positive is the interior of the restaurant, it is nice looking. But service and quality of food was very bad. First we waited more than 45 minutes and after we saw...all other europeans who came later than us got their already we complaint. After our complaint we received cold, wrong and bad tasting dinner. We asked for warm food and they were unfriendly to us. Served the same cold food again and ignored us. Also the portions were quite small. I would not recommend to go their because we felt handled like less worth persons because all the other guest who looked more like tourists were treated well.More

Sanafe, like most of the small inns in Banaue, opens its doors to walk in guests with a charming, well appointed restaurant. The food is a bit pricier than the other choices around it but it's well worth it. The best tables are on the...covered patio which looks out on the terraces and the town below. If you want to just have a coffee or a beer, sit on the high stools by the counter on the patio and enjoy the amazing view.More

Food was good. Views were nice. We ate lunch here one day as it was raining, so we skipped hiking. No credit card accepted was my only complaint.

Food is correct although not very tasty and service is fast although not very friendly nor smiling. There is a nice terrace over the town and rice fields. Cheap, not too bad, forgettable.

We heard about this place and thought it was worth checking out. And boy, we lived the charm of this place. We came for dinner so unfortunately dark and we couldn't see the beautiful view. Though the decoration was simple but yet different from rest...of the restaurants nearby. And the hospitality of the staff surely made us feel at home. The food came pretty fast and was very delicious. And did I mention that everything was with a smile :-) Definitely worth coming back for.More

We went inside the restaurant, no one even seated us so we walked our way inside for available seats. Took few minutes before we were handed with the menu by a frowning wait staff. Surprisingly, food were expensive for local travelers' standard so we left...and headed to Las Vegas Restaurant where food were more affordable and staff were more friendly.More

Staff named Regine was so mean and argumentative. The moment I arrived with my GS 1200 BMW,she instructed me with no respect to park my bike somewhere which I did cautiously for it was blocking the main door which I didn't immediately noticed. So what...I did is to park at the very side of the entrance underground parking of its neighboring market. And still she wont allow for it might block the tricycle entrance for which I know that they(tricycle)can pass trough. I did answer her that she wont be liable if it might caught with accident which she obliged impolitely. The funny thing happened next was NO ONE attended me to give me the menu for ordering. She instead entertained a foreigner couple inquiring for room rates. Upon asking her for the menu,she raised her voiced to one of the staff to get the order which in turned i became furious. She really was annoying,argumentative bossy. She don't deserved that place. I was even shouting complaining outside the resto that some of the residents feed back where not so good. Better off get the 7th heavens cafe. Good food great place and friendly staff. Love the brewed coffee This visit to SANAFE was my second. My first was with my entire family but that B$/@:$: REGINE ruined it all. Note: OWNER. YOU MUST FIRE THIS REGINE. DATE OF VISIT WAS FEB 24 at around noontime. Check your cctv if you have one.More
