This cosy place is close to Sulliman University and seems to be very popular amongst the students. I can understand why. They have a diverse menu from typical Philipino dishes to Mexican specialties. All very nice and very cheap. Staff is, to Philippine standards, extremely efficient. Start with the chimichanga and make your way through the menu. You'll love it.

Stopped in for dinner again after several months. Ordered the Beef Tenderloin Steak cooked medium, and Mashed Potatoes. The service was very good, even though it was a very busy night. The steak was served in 4 pieces, and the 2 thickest chunks were undercooked ( better under than over cooked ). The floor manager took them back to the... More

quaint little mexican place with nice decor details. provides a good alternative to the predominantly local cuisine in the area. very, very reasonably priced! try the ribs, a whole huge slab is priced 1/6th of what you would get charged in a manila resto , and its falling off the bones!

The food is generally not bad after nearly 2 weeks of local food. Ribs is big serving, tender but a bit burnt on the edges, which gives it a nicer blend. Pizza has decent amount of mozzarella which makes it appealing. The 3 litres tower of beer seems short changed though as the top 500ml was just foam.

We ate at the robinsons branch. The mall closes at 8 but luckily Moon Cafe stays open a bit later (last orders in at 8.30 pm). The waitstaff were attentive and quick. The servings were bigger than what we are used to in manila. Great value for the price. I ordered the steak and got a big chunk of tasty... More

Overall visited Moon on four occasions as the food was so good and so reasonable in price. Drinks were cheap and selection of beers really chilled which we were always ready for. Place was clean and service was excellent. Fajhitas ??were good but the best were 'jurassic ribs' you have to see it to believe. Definitely looking forward to going... More

Great ambience... Best mexican food in town. I can only wish this resto had a branch in Manila. Try ANY from their mexican food list. We tried their fish taco, chicken flauta and chimichanga and the taste definitely took me back to Mexico. Their corn tortilla tastes fresh and authentic. If you've never had mexican food before- this place would... More

This is restaurant is a big hit with the Silliman University students because of the cheap prices and pretty good food. I've seen many tourists in the restaurant also. Food is good and staff is ok but you will have to flag them down which is pretty typical here in the Philippines.

Mexican restaurant with really good food and variety of beer choices. The servings are huge enough to fill up an empty stomach. I like the Baby back ribs. They also have veggies if you guys are vegetarians or vegans. Prices aren't so high, it is actually budget-friendly. I like the ambiance here so I like to spent my afternoons here... More

We went here for dinner and I ordered Tostaditos(3 little tostadas) I don't eat meat and they easily left it off and added beans per my request. Sour cream topping was a little sweet for my liking. Margarita was pretty good. Overall it was quite good though and a nice change from noodle and rice dishes.

Thank Roniq3
