Fresh, inexpensive and fast service. Though a fair warning: when ordering for fruit shakes, don't forget to tell them to skip the milk if you want pure fruit shake.

Take a motor-tricycle from the city Centre (about 10-20pesos) and enjoy some quality seafood. We are a small group but enjoyed our dinner there very much.

April 15, 2017 Saturday, around 8pm, you already know how hungry we were from a very long trip. We decided to leave our car at the pension house we were staying and rode a tricycle instead to look for a place to eat. So then, the tricycle driver recommended us to dine at Hayahay but since the restau was full,... More

The food was good. We had steamed talaba, kinilaw, shell soup, garlic shrimp, and oh yes, the grilled native chicken which came just as we were about to finish our meal. If you are really hungry, don't come here. It took them more than 45 minutes to serve the meal ( the drinks came fast though) and as mentioned earlier,... More

The food was so-so. We had baked oysters that were buried with so much cheese you can find the small oysters. The Dumaguete express was not extraordinary also. Not expensive though. My favorite part was the pianist playing songs while we had our lunch.

Being that this restaurant was highly recommended, we thought of checking it out. We ordered tons of food and thought we just wanted some water to stay hydrated. Being that their a restaurant and not the cheap ones out there in Dumaguete you'd expect they offer the proper "water" for their customers. Yet they told us that they only serve... More

We came here for dinner. We stayed outside but there were mosquitos so we went inside. The place was packed. We ordered crabs, pinakbet, pork sinigang and clams. But our food came late. We waited for some time. The crabs came last.But it was worth the wait.

This restaurant is a waste of time! We went here for dinner at 0700pm tonight. We ordered 10minutes after we were seated. After 30minutes we made a followup of our food from one of the waiters and we were told to wait some more. After we have seen that the two tables adjacent to us were already eating, we again...
