Good food. Very good band.

So, I've lived nearby for years, and always noticed the restaurant, but never tried it even once. Decided to come try the place out for dinner on a whim, and was not disappointed. The prices spooked us initially, limiting some of our choices, but the server assured us that the portion sizes were enough to split between two, so we got an appetizer, entree, and dessert to split. Food tastes like home cooking. I have basically no experience with Filipino cuisine, so everything was a new experience for me. We ended up getting Filipino pork spring rolls, which were crispy and delicious. Very similar, but also different from Chinese or Vietnamese ones. The entree was their "Kare Kare," which was basically a peanut sauce beef stew with veggies. It's listed with tripe on the menu, which I was excited for, but we were told that they weren't allowed to serve tripe anymore. Seemed strange to me because every Vietnamese restaurant in town would be in trouble. It was good, but maybe a bit undersalted on its own. However, we were given fish paste to eat with it, that completely transformed the flavour and complemented the dish. For dessert we had the deep fried banana, jack fruit, and ice cream. To go we split a cake thing I can't remember the name of. It was moist, delicious, had some nuts in it, and I'd definitely go back to pick it up again. Overall, delicious food. The place is a bit dark and could use a makeover, but I'm not one to care about what a place looks like as long as the food is good and the kitchen and bathrooms are clean.

I love going here whenever I visit my relatives in Calgary. Definitely reminds me of the Barrio Fiesta back home. I hope they'll have the eat-all-you-can too.

It reminds me of a typical filipino bars in the Philippines. We like the authentic filipino dishes they are serving. My fav is the Crispt pata and fried rice. They also offers authentic filipino boodle fight which is great. Its a good place to relax while listening to their live band.

All the food that we ordered tasted delicious. We bought the chicken adobo and pansit. Are you going to learn to enjoy some of the music I was playing in the background. Especially Ben and Ben.

It was our first time to visit but we enjoyed our dining experience. Friendly people (owner was engaging and hospitable), good food (we enjoyed the sizzling sisig na bangus) and nice place to hangout! The place is spacious enough to hold parties and a band concert. According to the owner they usually have live bands every Friday and weekends. Will definitely be back!!!

food was top notch. service was good. downside is the garbage by the side of the restaurant, it discourages you from going in but once in....its a little heaven with a rustic barn house feel

The meals and service were beyond my expectations. We really liked the environment of this restaurant. Superb place to take my family out for lunch.

The sisig was awesome as well as the pork BBQ. Last time I ate Lomi was in the Philippines, their lomi tastes so good. The kare-kare was the best, it felt like you were in the Philippines. The meat was tender and the peanut sauce was thick with real peanuts. The turon and sans rival, a must have dessert. And the owner is so friendly. Definitely going back before flying back to NY.

This is the most welcoming restaurant for out-of-town guests! Coming from Seattle, WA, USA, we had no idea what to do here but found a homestyle Barrio restaurant for us to have lunch at. With amazing Filipino hospitality, we felt right at home as if we were back in the Philippines. Maraming Salamat!

I was referred by my co-worker from Edmonton to try this place in Calgary. The food was delicious and service was great! We ate kare-kare (a bit salty), sisig, lumpiang sariwa and halo halo. I highly recommend this place!

We are from LA and went here today for the first time. We were craving for Filipino food and this place didn't disappoint. We ordered sizzling pork sisig, bulalo and lechon kawali. Bulalo is especially delicious and tasted like it is home-cooked. Would not mind going back to this place whenever we are in Calgary. The dessert silvana/sans rival is also very tasty.

Nothing compared to LA... Glendale is way better! Small servings! Tita's way better! Not a typical original Barrio Fiesta taste! Kare kare has five chunks of small meat. Just being honest! Quite disappointed. Not coming back! Nahhhhh!

Marjorie Quesada

If you are up.for a live band, go there like Saturday. But if you just want to enjoy Filipino foods in privacy, be there during weekdays.

Mohammad Anis

Booked this place for work Christmas party. We all had a blast. There was karaoke, food and party. It was amazing. Food was great, ambience was spot on and the owner and staff was amazing. Trying to find an excuse to host another party here!!!

Tara Lyon

We really like to go here for a date night whenever we are in the Calgary area. My partner is Filipino, and I am not. I always feel very welcome, and enjoy the food and live music on the weekends. It's a great night out for anyone who wants something unique. If you like Filipino food, or want to try it, check this place out. They also have various beverages from there as well. Enjoy!!
