Tips for you
If coming from the beach, this place is quite tough to find from the beach (enter the small 'opening/path' between Deparis & Mandarin Hotesl, you have to walk through narrow & dark, damp alleyways). It is easier to locate from the 'main road'. The ambience is fantastic (elevated patio surrounded by garden), relaxing and seating is on cushions and you eat from low tables. Going there for late lunch (after 2:30pm), we were the only patrons until another couple came. The food has a distinct home cooked taste and was delicious! We had the spring chicken cooked two ways (deepfried after being boiled for soup and prawns. The soup was a bit salty. Prawns were crunchily fresh. Bill was steeped - almost USD50 including drinks. But it is worth it.
The garlic prawns was huge and good. The Tinola is over-priced. But I don't mind the price for the ambiance.
