|Their wine collection|
The place is modern and elegant at the same time. I think it is enough to accommodate as many as 40 guests. As we walked in, we were assisted promptly to our seats.
We ordered a lunch course meal for P1500 (VAT ex) and drinks. After few minutes, our first course and drinks were served.
|Apple Juice – Green Salad – Mango Juice|
This is the first time I tried a mix of cucumber, onion, and carrot drizzled with vinegarette and topped off with seafood flakes (I think). We both loved it. The vegetables taste fresh and the vinegarette is just right. Not too overpowering.
Moving on to the appetizers, Hubby ordered assorted sashimi while I got myself the three kinds of appetizers since I preferred cooked meals.
|(Assorted Sashimi) Salmon – Bluefin Tuna – Horse Mackerel|
|(Three Kinds of Appetizers) Braised Otoro – Deep Fried Fish – Soy-braised Eggplant|
I am new to these and surprisingly, they all tastes good.
For the main course, Hubby got himself his favorite – Assorted Tempura while Teppan Grilled Angus Beef for myself. Each meal comes with rice, miso soup, and pickles.
The tempura is not covered with so much flour compared to other tempura we have tried. You can definitely taste that the shrimp is healthy and fresh. If that makes any sense lols.

At first, I was a bit disappointed to the amount of serving and thought this won’t satisfy my empty stomach. But lo and behold, it did! The miso soup is so tasty and side dishes (white onion and red bell pepper) tastes fresh and juicy. I wanted my steak to be well done and it came as expected, tender and delicious as well. Even those tiny bits of meat on the side are satisfying especially with a big chunk of rice. I finished everything on my plate and I was so damn full!!! *burp*
|Match Roll with Fruits|
We capped off our course meal with a delectable sweet, matcha roll with fruits. I’m not a fan of matcha (because I don’t like the herbal kind of taste) but boy, you should definitely try this. I was surprised hubby also liked it despite the fact that he’s not really into sweets. That’s how good this matcha roll was. It has texture, the filling has the right sweetness and not much of an herbal taste. The fruits were also served fresh and taste sweet.
Overall, it was a great experience. The staff is very attentive that he removed our plates right after we finished and served the next course promptly. The ambiance is relaxing and perfect for meetings and family gathering. The food is excellent and indeed worth every cent.

Tender fillets of chicken breast encrusted in a parmesan crumb mixture top with rich stewed tomato meat sauce and melted mozzarella; served with glazed butter carrots
|Banoffee Pie P115|
I rate this 8 out of 10. I love how the ingredients balanced the sweetness whereas you won’t get fed off the taste. I also love the fresh banana comes with it. On the other hand, I think they went overboard on the whipped cream. As you can see, it almost has the same thickness as the thin crust and the banana layering. Too much of whipped cream looks unhealthy for my liking.
Overall, we were satisfied in what we ordered and had a wonderful time during our stay. We will definitely try their pasta dishes on our next visit.
