I came to this restaurant on a recommendation. But I would say that it was quite average for the price. The sandwich that I had was nice and the bread was crunchy but I had finished my food by the time my friend had hers...More

They have very good service (except for the waitress who kept on flirting to my bf which is quite disturbing *facepalm*) especially the part when they gave us free drinks Haha. It will take a bit longer for the food to arrive but for me...More

We ordered the Piscuitto pizza and man, it was bland. We also catched the waitresses making fun of the other foreign customers, and looking annoyed when we asked for water. We're never trusting a "No. 1 on Trip Advisor" sign ever again.

This place has great reviews and deservedly so for the food but slow service. No music during evening & empty restaurant left a dull atmosphere.

We had dinner twice, and we were really happy both times. Food quality is probably the best we have found so far in the Philippines.

“no appetizers!?” 1 of 5 starsReviewed 2 weeks ago you only get free soup if you buy 2 overpriced entrees. What top rated restaurant doesn't have appetizers? Pathetic. Hi, I just read this review and in the Pleasure Principle's defence I would like to ask troyjpemberton which other restaurants in the area give away free appetizer? I have eaten in many and non of the others have given me a free appetizer!

None. When you buy a meal at pleasure principal they come with appetizers. This restaurant also serves the largest portions of food in the area. It is terrific value for money. I certainly will be returning there to eat... More
