Almost every family occasion of ours is celebrated here. Not only because this restaurant is near to us but also the experience of such food which you no longer have to travel so far. I personally loved their PORK SISIG. We never missed out on that one everytime we eat here. If you're on budget this won't hurt your wallet because aside from the fact that this one's a budget friendly restau, the foods are of great qualities too.

Love their kare-kare, pancit canton, and the desserts. The place is calm and cozy, like imagine you're in a floating hut. The price is affordable enough for such good dishes. They also accept events and catering.

I really recommend this place for hangout! Very relaxing and sweet ambiance para sa mga mag-bf/mag-asawa, "floating restaurant" with cafe, lalo na sa gabi maganda ang mga lights with fountain fish lol. Medyo malamok kasi nga nakatayo sya sa tubig with open area but I hope they can do something about it. My favorite is their pork sisig and spicy gambas. Though medyo mahal yung rice nila pero yung taste ng mga dishes nila ay talagang 5 stars! Their frappe is good too! One of my favorite restaurant. So 4 stars dahil medyo malamok haha.

Good food.
Place is not so clean since the place stands above the actual river (i dont know if its really a river since there is a body of water underneath it)
The staff are so polite and quick.
Super affordable.

If you'll visit Malabon City, this place should be in your list specially if you're a fan of night outs, affordable bucket of beer 127867and yummiest pulutan127859127842127841

Don't forget to bring anti mosquito lotion so insect bites won't spoil the night!

The first thing i know about the place was like an 'inuman place' so i was kinda hesistant to visit the place. But since my Mom was familiar in the area, i decided to take a look and ofcourse to eat. We ordered a lot of viands including the famous sisig which im a bit skeptical about its taste. As i ate it, i was amaze by its taste. It was really good! They don't use any 'chicharon' they use the fried pig skin and it was crunchy and the flavor is fantastic. Ever since i taste that sisig, it became my standards. And up to now it is still the best sisig ever :)

A nice place to meet old friends & chill. Drinks + Good food = Great experience. Although not very advisable to visit during monsoon & hightide seasons.

Yay! First time to try their Chocolate Truffle cake! And it's really good. I guess my second favorite after their cheesecake. It tasted like dark chocolate. The inside is not full sponge cake, it has layers of sponge and soft chocolate inside. Costed P130. Bought Coffee Jelly too and it tasted like those in fancy cafes.

Since I didn't like the food at home for dinner, here's Balsa sa Niugan to the rescue! I ordered sisig for take out. The service was fast; my order was served after 15 mins. What I don't like about the place are the mosquitos. Since the place is a floating restaurant, you'll experience the lamok as well. The sisig is really great, there's the crunch from chicharon when you bite it. One order of this might be enough for 3-5 persons and it costs only P160.

So I bought 3 cakes to try each. LOL. I had a sudden craving for cake. First is the Classic Chocolate (not shown in the pic) it tasted ordinary and a bit tough. Second is Almond Roca, I like the taste of it. Not too sweet and it has a cream feeling inside that has a distinct taste. Third is the Chocolate Truffle, my favorite among the three, it has a slight bitterness like a dark chocolate which I love. The classic chocolate costs P110 and the other two cost P130

I also tried their Italian soda in strawberry flavor for P85. Taste is Ok, but I prefer My Kitchen's Italian Blood Orange Soda. 128522

This cafe has the same distributor as Starbucks for their cakes. They have the Heaven on Earth Cake too but they call it as Climax. 128522

Yung mga dish na usually hindi masarap yung lasa and pagkakaluto sa ibang kainan, Dito sobrang napapasarap nila! Favorite ko dito yung specialty nila na Pork Sisig. Must try din yung Kare-Kare, Camaron at Lechon Kawali. Sinigang sa Miso. The best (y)

The place where you can dine, just hang out with your good old friends without having to care about how much you eat and how you look. BEST SISIG IN THE PHILIPPINES!!!! I'm a very proud Malabonian because of their sisig (and not the flood, I know). Definitely worth the travel!
