Touched down in Moalboal on my month travelling around the Philippines. Well isn't this place quirky! Full of different cuisines, people & things to do! I Stumbled across what I can only describe as a hidden gem! I understand why this place is rated number 1 in this little village. Service with a huge smile & its the first time... More

Ordered Jumbo Prawns, 3 Little Piggies, and Kama Sutra Pancake. Jumbo Prawns was nice, 3 Little Piggies was run of the mill, the french fries were the frozen kind. And then we had the pancake, and WOW. Do yourself a favor and order that, if nothing else.

The place has almost nothing to offer for veterinarians. They wouldn't do any changes in the menu courses in order to make them for vegetarian people, they were very struck about there "no changes" attitude. What we did order (the only veg in the menu) was awful. Came with ingredients that we specifically asked to remove from it. So- if... More

Really good food here,....however the team are miserable which is a real shame as a few more smiles and this place would be perfect. They could learn a lot from the team at chili's bar. However would definitely recommend having food there, they give you a free starter and the menu is very quirky :)

We stopped in for an early lunch and only wanted something light.....however we found their signature seafood dish hard to pass. What an awesome meal for 2.....corn fritter appetizer.....salad.....and a main dish of seafood that was outstanding in variety and superbly prepared. We loved it all including the sangrias to finish...but were so full we did not eat again that... More

Always a real pleasure coming back to Steve's great place right in the center of Panagsama, Moalboal. Dinner starts with an appetizer and culminates with a sip of Sangria or coffee of preference. The moment the delicious and carefully arranged main course is presented you can't wait to savor the special entree. I wonder how they manage to come up... More

Whoever is cooking knows their stuff. There is care in preparation, presentation and the complete package is very close to brilliant! So far, I have only had the 'Big bang boom boom Kano breakfast' (big American breakfast) at 310php, not cheap, but well worth it, value. Nice bacon, eggs, hash brown, tomatoes, mushroom, toast, butter and jam. It comes with... More

Saw reviews that this was the best restaurant in Moalboal so of course we couldn't pass it up. Their appetizer was very good and their pizza has a crunchy thin crust. Their pasta is so-so, but all in all a good experience. Order their super cappuccino if you want to be awake until 12 midnight!
