We are every meal at this restaurant for 2.5 days and never got tired of it! The variety of food is incredible! I don’t know how they have enough space for all the ingredients to make so many different types of dishes and do it...so well. You’ll for sure find a dish that suits everyone’s taste. (You can even ask for their secret Filipino menu). Customer service is top notch as well, at the level of 5 star restaurants. I highly recommend this place!More

The food here was really good, they had the classic Mexican dishes such as burritos and tacos but other dishes as well. What really made our dinner was the service though. The food was served very quickly and all the wait staff were extremely attentive....Our server was Jerick and was so friendly and helpful, even taught us some common Filipino phrases. Can't recommend this place enough!More

We came to eat dinner and the waiters & waitresses were so awesome that we came back the next night. The aesthetic and trendy atmosphere were huge to us, The drinks are amazing and the food is good, a great break from eating from eating...Filipino dishes. But we couldn’t help to notice that the service is some of the best we have had since being in the Philippines. Not only were our waiters and waitresses attentive and friendly but they were personable and we had a great time talking to them, really made the experience. Our waiter even slipped my husband a note on how to tell me he loved me in Tagalog. So sweet!More

After looking online for somewhere to go we ended up choosing this place and boy we were so happy we did. I had a canvas cooler to drink (non alcoholic) it was SO refreshing and I want to try make it when I return home!...The happy hour for cocktails was 6pm-10pm which was great for my boyfriend who said the mojitos were tasty. For dinner we shared the grilled chicken plate and the ribs - both plates were so yummy and we ate it all! Highly recommendedMore

Love this place! Comfortable for tourists, the food is delicious. Not necessarily authentic Filipino but delicious nonetheless. The menu is vast and diverse. JOY is our favorite server, she is amazing and very sweet, kind... Everybody is nice. Super polite/friendly staff even down to the...cooks. Try the crunchy cauliflower bites for sure—addicting.More

We have enjoyed every meal in this restaurant over a 4 day stay at the attached Canvas Boutique hotel. I'm no expert on Mexican food but I enjoyed all of the Mexican offerings on the menu. We loved the Quatro Rico Promo was our goto...comfort for hard and soft Tachos, great soup, burritos and dessert. It seems like the kind of place that will develop their menus and I would definitely recommend giving it a try. Background music is cool, lo-fi style jazz and the staff are very attentive.More

If Mexican cuisine is offered, be sure to make it with the basic ingredients: cilantro, avocado, salt, lime. My partner and I ordered soft tacos- the carnitas was pale without any flavor; the pickled onion did not help; minimal salsa. For a tropical country, let’s...add pineapple to the mix and it will be fun. But this soft taco was dreadfully boring. The lapu-lapu ceviche was warm. I wasn’t sure why. Vinegar was so sour, too many chiles, there was no depth. Go to Kinabuch and Capt. Ribs, order their ceviche/kinilaw for tasting to learn what a good ceviche tastes like. I did not finish my ceviche. Another thing, if you will accommodate a large crowd of tourists, be sure there are enough wait staff. The 2 were running around like headless chickens and this is not their fault. The fruit shake was good but that should be a given. Total disappointment.More

The best comfort food in town. A day after the feast with my friends, I brought my teenager nephews to the place. As locals, they were surprised to find out that the price is very affordable yet the food is so generous. They liked it...so much, especially the nacho basket. Yummy! The staff are also very attentive and appear to be happy to assist their diners, which is a big big plus. We will surely will be back for more.More
