It was my first time to dine here at this resto located at D'mall. I heard good stuff about the place and so I tried it out. I am a steak lover and I know my steaks. Sad to say, this is not as good as everyone else say. I ordered the Rib Eye Pepper Steak. I was dismayed to... More

Service crew are prompt and responsive. Unfortunately, their food average and forgettable. Went their for Sunday lunch around 2PM. Place was crowded at the time so I took it as a good sign that they're serving good food. Place is too crowded. Prepare to spend Php250 minimum per person. Ordered the Onion Ring Tower, Belly BBQ, Chicken BBQ, and Ribeye... More

For a BBQ place I was expecting a great burger but it was only average. The onion rings and the sweet corn were nice but nothing overly amazing. The t-shirts of the staff were probably the best thing at this place. Location in a corner in Dmall was warm because there wasn't much air flow and the seating area was... More

Yummy & delicious. Restaurant you should never missed in Boracay. Tried their famous pork and beef, yum yum. The serving portion is big and good enough to share between 2 small eaters. Suggest to order few items for sharing if you go in group of four and above.

We just pass by in this restaurant, we are amazed because it is full of people, but mostly koreans, so that's why we stop by. Disappointed because my girlfriend was forced just to stand up to allow people to pass.food was ok.

Went to this restaurant because my nephew had heard about it. Food is mediocre. Had the pulled pork, but found the sauce too salty. What I can`t understand is how the hot plate, which is hot to the touch, is not hot enough to fully cook the egg. The egg white was still runny up until the end of my... More

Came here for dinner after looking at the crowds, but we were disappointed. Had the baby back ribs (recommended by the waiter as it was their signature), but the rice and ribs were stone cold, despite the warm hotplate it was served in. Beer was served in the stubby without a cold glass. Wait staff were helpful only when you... More

Visited 15 October. I had the pulled pork, my significant other had the baby back ribs. Both meals were well made and delicious! Also we had the onion rings which were amazing. Try the lemonade. Restaurant gets very crowded in the evening. Late afternoon is the best opportunity for a free table.
