The owner is super welcoming. The food is nice and there's always nice fruit shakes you can try. Local food is good to try, prices for everything are not too high so you'll definitely like it here.

This place is just walking distance from Bongo Bongo Divers resort. At first looking at the cafe its a small kubo with actually cute setting. We didnt expect much from the food sa long as it satisfies our hunger BUT the food here are actually...REALLY GOOD!! I am beyond happy with their serving size and variety of food. It is a bit pricey (manila pricing) but we did enjoy every single meal.More

We had Fish and chips on the first night, and Red Thai Curry and a curry pie on the second. All very good quality, made with fresh ingredients and tasty. Good selection of drinks available at decent prices too.

Thanks very much for your great review! Our Ribs and BBQ evenings on Friday still continue too be as popular as ever.. You pretty much mentioned all our tasty dishes and thanks for that. Cold beer of course is a given and types we love...More

Very nice and cozy ambiance for all occasions of meals, we started with the breakfast before the dives, and was really satisfied with the freshness of the ingredients, and without much longer wait, warm food is served. A great variety of choices, including the beverages...such as the fresh juice, coffee/ tea and also different type of alcohols. The staff was attentive, and they'd really given their best to accommodate requests although they may not have them on the menu. The highlight was the BBQ evening where they have it every Friday with good variety of choices, with ribs, meatballs, spring roll etc. and also grilled fish on request. Definitely worth stopping by if you'd be in Dauin for a nice, cozy and sumptuous meal any time of the day !More
