The food and drinks here were spectacular! The carne asada was the best I've ever had. As is normal for these days, wait staff was minimal which led to delays in ordering or reordering drinks. It did not ruin our evening though. The air conditioning was on full and pointed directly at the tables in the bar section so we were cold. It did seem the regular dining area was warmer. All in all, can't wait to return!

Our table of 5 had wonderful service from Christian and all the staff. We shared many dishes and all were uniquely delicious. Our favorites were the skewers, sisig, coconut greens, and the Biko. I can’t wait to go back!

Wow! My first time to visit and this place is fantastic. We ordered the crudo, pork chop, broccolini and cavatelli. Every single dish was incredible. I enjoyed this meal as much as any in Portland and I have dined often for years here. The service was excellent and at the end of the night we left looking for dates for our next reservation.

From the time we sat down to our last course everything was spot on. Chefs interacted with us and answered all of our questions. I love that they offer an omnivore and vegetarian course. My girlfriend did the regular menu and I did the vegetarian. I highly recommend checking this place out if you’re ever in the Portland area.
