Still great from Baby Bomers to Millenials. Still serves traditional Filipino food and the deadly Oyster Rockefeller or baked oysters. Authentic and delightful dinners or snacks. Very good value for money. Nice, old and new waiters serving courteously with smiles.

All time favorite dishes. Crispy pata was crispy on the outside and meat was tender. Adobong pusit (squid) nothing outstanding. Waiters needs to be more cheerful. Service rendered is satisfactory.
