The ambiance was perfect for a nice dinner for two, staff attentive and friendly, and the food was great. Absolutely worth the little extra you pay compared to other restaurants in the area. Looking forward to the next visit.

We had the chance to try almost everything on the menu over 8 days staying at the resort. By far, the best food we've had in Cebu
