For those who want to experience entertainment and fun while eating, Singing Cooks and Waters is specifically for you.
The cooks and waiters take turns singing and cooking your food or waiting on you. The Chef is even the highlight of the entertainment by singing and cooking “wife fire” at the same time.
In addition, the numbers have very good choreography which makes it feel like you are in a musical show.
The performers ensure that there is audience participation in the entertainment. Sing along if you know the song. Also, they pick out customers to help them perform.
Lastly, the staff shows the true Filipino hospitality. Firstly, they kindly welcome you to the restaurant. Secondly, the waiters are very accommodating with good service. Thirdly, during entertainment time they make it enjoyable for all. Finally, when you are ready to leave, all the staff thanks you for coming.
The food is truly authentic Filipino cuisine. Mostly, seafood, beef and pork dishes with rice are available from the menu.
My favorite was the seafood dishes.
The food comes out of the kitchen family style on serving platters or in large bowls. Therefore, sharing of dishes with your entire party is the normal.
Presentation of the dishes is fabulous.
Everything is great tasting. Our meals were delicious.
Prices were very reasonable. For example, the average cost for 2 people is approximately 1,200 php ($25). Also, the cost for a pint of beer is approximately 75 php ($1.50).
