I always enjoy coming here. Their BBQ chicken is awesome, so well cooked and flavoursome. Nice meals and a good meal out.

My mother in law brought us here on the last day of my trip. The food was great, the service excellent. The price was very good. I will definitely return here on my next trip in 2016. Loved the chicken!

An australian that loves to cook, and I love good food.

Almost never eat out as finding restaurants that provide good food is hard to find, and in Asia this is particularly even more so.

Usual dread of coming to the Philippines is meat, meat and more meat. Which is fine for a day or so but the lack of greens is hard to cope with.

But along comes Jo's to the rescue. From the outside I was apprehensive as it was clean, bright and we'll presented. A sure sign of McDonald's type food.

Jo's is nothing of the sort and would rate this as one of the best eating house I have visited in a long time anywhere.

Excellent pork, chicken and the best eggplant dish I have ever had.

If you are in ormoc make sure you visit.

Hello Daz,

Ohhh, we love hearing from foodies who also cook! And we are glad we passed your discerning palate in flying colors!

We are truly happy for your recommendations. Next time you come, you may want to try our Spicy Talong (Eggplant) and Ampalaya with Dilis (Bitter Gourd with Dried Anchovies Salad).

Hope to hear from you again soon!
