Super disappointing mango margarita - in a place, where fresh mangoes are everywhere - make a mango margarita with some sweet powdered lemonade? Seriously? When we asked for some lime to freshen it up - they brought us lime syrup (facepalm). The pizza was below...average, even keeping in mind it’s not Italy. There was some sea food on other tables that looked quite nice, though. So maybe just stay away from mango margarita & pizza.More

We had a nice dinner there, they offer quite big portions and it tasted good. They have a big menu and have many western foods. Although they could give some more fries with the food in my opinion.

We ate here two days and tried different courses. Thai and a French course, all ok but not anything special. The day after we tried pizza and we thought it was a bit tasteless. We ate better pizza in El Nido during the trip. Still...not bad in any way :-)More

A nice surprise in this busy dirty area. Lovely staff and really excellent pizza. I have to write 100 words minimum? Why tripadvisor?

We are a group of Filipinos who gave this resto a chance to impress us not only with food but service as well. We got there and it was almost empty. Maybe about 10 tables, there were only 2 tables occupied, ours and the other...is occupied by a mum and son. We waited few minutes, no one came to take our orders. We had to call their attention 4x before they took our orders. The waitress wasn't friendly at all, only took our oders, no small talks like a heads up how long we'll have to wait or even say hi. We asked to serve service water first but it wasn't served til we left. We left that resto without drinking water because we didn't feel like spending more for a crappy and unfriendly environment. Food came for 30mins although the resto wasn't busy at all. Overall experience was terrible. Food is okay and service is 0 out of ten.More

We ordered the seafood platters to share and it was quite good (especially the shrimps). Portions were generous. The fish was just ok and the French fries not good. Overall we ate well and the service was good. The paintings on the wall aren’t kids-friendly...though.More

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
