If this is your first time visiting the restaurant, here are a few things to take note. Since it’s located on top of hills, getting there can be a tad of an adventure. Roads are narrow, bumpy and very steep, so keep your eyes on the road and hands upon the wheel, especially after sundown, where it’ll be close to pitch black.
