The food is good, one of the best places in Calapan. Service though, was not good. Waitress never checked back after order was delivered. Had to ask twice for the bill.

Disappointing to say the least even if other say they have good experience ...
We went there last night for a quick dinner before the movies because we've already tried the restaurants around that area .
We got there around 5p when nobody was around . Before us, was a customer that had to wait for the rest of his group. We were sat by a quiet shy wait staff . She got our order within mins . Had a little difficulty with our order. So when we finalized it it took her 3x to write it down . She actually even repeated it and we confirmed.
Not sure how it's done usually but one order came first . From a different wait staff . Then one drink is not available . Specifically ask for unsweetened iced tea because I'm diabetic . She ask someone if it's unsweetened and they said it's not . Drank it and it tasted like pure sugar with a bit of tea flavor ( if you know what I mean)
Then we were offered water with ice ...
It wouldn't have bothered us that things were bad until two more big groups have their food (fried chicken, which takes longer to cook)
Finally one dish down , cold by now ! Then chopshuey came . At this time our drinks were almost gone and no water . We had to finally ask for it .
45 minutes later after the first dish which was served ... we still didn't get my order which is very easy to make Lomi .
Again we had to ask for it ! Three different wait staff . And they said ... oh we didn't get it . And apologize that the girl was new ...

In my experience you don't put a new hire alone by themselves and not follow up .
We left hungry and disgusted that we chose this place .
Management should be on top of everything . In my humble opinion customers should ALWAYS be a priority .
I could not even comment about the food because the experience is unreal .

...We've been looking for a cafe in my short vacation in Calapan...and Auntie Lola was the place for me and my son, Mico. Nice location, nice ambiance, good food.

The BBQ Ribs is unbeatable. It's so tender you don't need to use a knife. You can peel it off the bone effortlessly. It's a bit sweet so this may not suit those who dislike the sweeter side of food or prefer their ribs peppery or spicy. It's also a bit pricier (P200 for the ribs) compared to other restaurant in Calapan but if you're from Manila, you won't be able to find the same quality at the same price back in Manila.

The staff is also nice and the place itself has a pleasant ambiance.
