Me and my family (group of 6 plus a kid) headed to Smoke Bar+Resto for lunch in Paoay Church area. The place is nice with a scenic view of the church. We ordered the East Meats West group meal from the menu with different dishes that’s good enough for our group. The portion was just right. But we were dismayed with the taste of the food. Especially with the smoked meat which is not appetizing at all, as it was looking pale and soaking in the orangey sauce. Not even half of the food served was consumed. And we did not bother to take out the leftovers. Worst part is we paid 2,995 for the food that we did not enjoy at all. We left the place hungry and disappointed. I guess the staff knew from our faces that she cant even ask how’s our dining experience.

We are sorry that you did not have an enjoyable visit. Had you raised your concerns to the staff, they would have done everything they could to remedy your complaints. Our smoked meats are of the highest quality, and are smoked using imported wood chips for their unique flavor and served with our homemade bbq sauces. We take pride in serving the best food and ensuring our customers leave happy. In any case, we apologize for your unsatisfactory experience.

The ribs and chili were delicious, and they were made even yummier by the hot sauces which I think the pitmaster makes himself. We were a little bit disappointed by the stale nachos but everything else was top-notch.
