This was a buffet, a world-class restaurant/hotel worthy From the entrance to the end, the staff was foremost polite and professional. Always with a smile, always ready to attend. The food was the best I had in years on a buffet like this. The choice...was more than extended, and the quality deserves a big round of applause for the kitchen crew! The drinks were plenty and of a high standard. The lemonades had a bunch of tastes, and the cocktails were made like in the best cocktail bars in New York. I made a new friend for life, the bartender who mixed those marvelous drinks! All the way home to Cabadbaran, I had the nice aftertaste of the crêpes with mango and vanilla still in my mouth!More

We were looking for sometime for a decent restaurant where we live in Northern Mindanao. In the closest city nearby our home, we discovered this week a true gem. We went for my wife's birthday with our daughter and stepdaughter to give it a try....I was blown away. The food was delicious, the service more than great. The restaurant was full, but we never had the feeling the kitchen could not cope. This is for me after spending 4 years in the Philippines, far out the best place I have been for dining out!!!More

Had dinner with a friend here and i must say this restaurant isn’t bad at all or shall I say this is by far the best restaurant I have visited here in Butuan City. Place is good, ambience is good as well. Service staffs are...attentive and the foods are great too, not to mention they offer a wide variety of Asian and Wetlands foods. Overall, i will recommend this restaurant. Cheers!More

When I saw the entrance, I thought that it's a small restaurant but when I get inside, it's huge. The interior is simple but elegant and full of minty colors. They also have function room at the second floor that can accommodate 15 Pandas (estimated...one) with good sound system. Food?!?! The texture is pleasing to the eyes and are quite exquisite. When I tried their Japanese and Filipino cuisine, there is a distinct taste that can only be found here.More

This restaurant is part of the otherwise excellent Watergate Hotel although some improvement is required. My grilled salmon was very over cooked, maybe it had just been reheated. The Tuna with fries looked a better choice. Together with two beers, the bill amounted to 656.50...pesos. Service was fine.More

This was our first time here with a group of people for a business meeting. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Choice of food and styles from an extensive menu. A variety of food was ordered and it was interesting to see the individual...items. Fish and chips British style, BLT and pinoy food was presented. All good sized portions and well presented. I had a tuna sinigang with rice. My wife pinakbet. Both very good. Very happy to visit again. The Lime and Zest is attached and part of the Watergate Hotel Butuan.More

Have to fight my way to eat my bolognese pasta. Flies flying around the table and under the table waiting for their chance to dive in my plate. I just thought the place is not worth it for (approx) 200+ peso per plate menu. They...have small candles but that do not help keeping the flies out. I' m wondering how's their kitchen like with all the flies in the dinning area?More

Their food looked amazing but taste average. The staff is not very attentive and just stays in their counter talking each other without minding their guests that much. Very disappointing.

The restaurant primarily serves asian fusion cuisine. Their sushi boat is a good value at around $20. The rice portion seems to be a bit bigger than the usual sushi but the quality of the rolls is top notch.

This small dining place offers variety of choices for every age-group or type of guest. Their menu offers native, Korean, Japanese, American, etc. and each dish is definitely worth it. They also have a wide selection of drinks, both alcoholic and not. Their buffet breakfast...is also satisfying and more than enough to keep you going through the day's activities. Waiters and waitresses are also attentive to the customers' needs and are willing to assist those who have mobility challenge. A bit pricey but it's worth it.More

I haven't tried their food as I was mostly away for meetings. I did however loved their Shaved ice. The dessert was very creamy and the toppings were very authentic. Just to warn you, their serving is quite huge. I would suggest that this dessert...be shared by friends rather than consumed alone like me. Too bad i couldn't pack up the extra...This place is highly recommend.More
