McDonald's

Reviewed By Roxie19

I have decided to celebrate my daughter's 1st birthday last week of July 2013 instead at Bauan's branch since I observed that it has a much spacious party room to accommodate visitors and a parking lot. Not to mention the newly renovated interior that convinced me to get their service. Prior to the said celebration, I've coordinated with Jewel about my reservation, inquiries about the usage of their projector and etc and I believed our discussion turned out well. After about 3 weeks, I came back to confirm my reservation and their I met Dave to assist me. I inquired again the projector that I was requesting for the video presentation and he told me that it is available upon request. I paid 3K for our downpayment and again left Mcdo thinking that everything that I have inquired and requested were noted very well (including the time and the date). Three days before the celebration I asked my husband if we could drop by the said branch just to make sure that everything has been finalized. When we got there, as a client/costumer I felt unimportant as giving service with high satisfaction was not their priority when I heard them saying "We don't provide projector for the party anymore Ma'am were sorry". Considering that it has been confirmed already to me. I begged them to do something about it and the discussion was gone long before they called their head manager to decide on the said matter. Mikee (head manager) told me that the projector was not noted by Dave that's why he was not aware of it and told me that for some reasons they stopped providing projector. But in spite of that he told me that they will do something about it. I asked him also that if there's no party before ours then we can come by half an hour before our time (1:30pm. Party starts at 2pm) and he said yes. On the day of the party we arrived at exactly 1:35 pm with our cake, decorations and own balloons and to my horror the function room was very crowded with so many costumers and was totally in a mess! No even a single balloon decoration was placed their. So I went to the counter to inform that we're their already. In less than 30 minutes our visitors will come anytime to see what? The mess? Like there's no party going on?! They sent one staff to clean the area. But we thought that one staff was not enough so we decided to help out cleaned the area and arranged the tables and chairs. Past 2pm and our visitors were their already waiting when the program will start. I saw Dave and others inflating balloons. (What?! They should have done that before 2pm!!!) I felt embarrassed with our visitors for the delay. But what to do. These people seems to be not bothered for the inconvenience thar they've caused. Since it's the party of our daughter we tried not to spoil it. The program started by 3pm. And it went well which was facilitated by Hazel. The Lcd projector was there so we were able to present the video which spiced up the celebration. (Thanks to Mikee who said "I will try" unlike the other staff who told me "No. I'm sorry.) There were just some "not so good remarks about the games like "pass the rope" which was very time consuming which led to boredom by the visitors. They should have let the kids play "bring me", very classic but more exciting and enjoyable. And also about the distribution of food. My husband helped to distribute the foods to avoid delays since one or two staffs were only there to assist, he did not mind anyway. After the party, I thanked Hazel for facilitating the party and for being enthusiastic that made the crowd so alive. I also asked her to extend my appreciation to Mikee. She apologized about the 1 hour delay of the program since she confessed to me that in their "day sched" our party was scheduled at 3pm, contrary to what was mentioned in my contract which was 2pm. In over all I must say that the party organizers and staffs are should be "WELL COORDINATED" to avoid this kind of inconvenience. Not so sure if I will recommend this party place to my other colleagues and friends. But we're hoping that they will improve their service to make sure that their client/costumers will leave their branch with a happy heart.

Reviewed By zarah_h - Manila, Philippines

Casa Cecilia has always been a family favorite. The dining area is comfortably lit lending a soft, quiet and soothing atmosphere for any family gathering.
Their food is uniquely Batangueño with the sumptuous crispy tadyang and the Taal's famous suman.
We will always find rest in Casa Cecilia.

The place is very accessible because it is located along the national highway. This a good place to read your books or newspaper while having a sumptuous meal. They offer great food and service. All the staff are always there to assist you. Sometimes, you got to meet the owner of the place who is very nice and approachable. You can see how hands on he is on his place. MUST VISIT PLACE IN BATANGAS CITY!

Don Juan

About Us Taaleño Mr. Ernesto F. Villavicencio, has always dreamed of opening a restaurant serving quality foods. To get the right formula, he tried franchising different food establishment such as, "Julie's Bakeshop" and "Tapa King". He pursued his dream and opened his own bakery named "Pan's and Company" and a Japanese Restaurant named TAKEHOME. In 1997, Mr. Ernesto F. Villavicencio joined a new business venture, developing a subdivision in his hometown Taal, Batangas. His first project was Hacienda Villas Subdivision. While constructing its clubhouse, Mr. Ernesto Villavicencio's passion of opening restaurant was reignited. "Cafe Eh!" was then born, offering western foods for the homeowners and nearby establishments. In 2009, he looked for a place in Taal poblacion's nearby market to put up his new restaurant. Don Juan BBQ opened on February 9, 2010, offering the best BBQ in town with Taal specialties and other native cuisines. To cater to more Taaleños, the restaurant opened a "Don Juan Food Express" nearby LTO Taal Batangas and "Cafeteria Kokorokok" at Taal Sports Center in Brgy. Halang Taal, Batangas.

We had Saturday dinner in this place and it was not crowded. I think most of the people come in during the lunch time as tourists arrive for day trips around the area. We had the Inihaw boodle because we already had a Taal food...MoreDear Sir Rhodeslao, Ala eh! We at Don Juan Boodle House, promise to always deliver our best to satisfy our clients. Glad you liked our crispy Tawilis. :) Your review is much appreciated. Sincerely, Don Juan Boodle House

Irene's Bulalo sa Kubo

Reviewed By RageDevil - Batangas City, Batangas City, Philippines

They serve the best gotong Batangas in town! It is soo delicious and I'd recommend for everyone to try it. The lomi is also delicious and their food is very affordable. The place is ok, it's clean and ventilation is good. Service needs improvement as sometimes orders might take quite a while. The best part is, this restaurant is open 24 hours, good for late night cravings.

We tried barbecue and sisig here and they were just average tasting. We particularly did not like the sisig because they added ginger which does not compliment the dish. The serve really cold beer though and the service was fantastic.

Very good selection on the menu. But the servers have the worst attitude. They were watching TV so they did not seem to want to be bothered. It was difficult to order because they were no where near the eating area. So many people had arms stretched out waving to no one. And this was during lunch time.
