Fine Dining Set Menu for Two

1660 pesos (3220 pesos value) for 2 persons, inclusive of taxes, not including 10% service charge, which is 166 pesos.

Green Tea Panna Cotta
a cool custard with green tea infusion - 2 orders

2 glasses of Wine Sangria

apple and pineapple bits - 2 orders

My opinion:
This meal is good value for the price of 840 pesos per set menu/per head, but not for the regular price of 1660 per set menu/per head. If you see another groupon offer from Ninyo with this price, it's value for money.

Comment on the service: 
1. Fast service. The food was served to us immediately.
2. Good but not fine dining quality. The waiters didn't notice we didn't have cloth napkins until we asked for it half-way through the meal.

Comment on the food:
I liked the pumpkin soup. The salmon dish was good. The panna cotta was soft and refreshing. The salad and appetizer was just ordinary but tasted fine.

Comment on the ambience:
It's being advertised as a romantic dinner for 2. But the small place of the restaurant does not afford too much privacy for couples. Make sure to request to be seated downstairs. The ambience is better downstairs than the second floor where we were seated.
