    I assume the place to go is Grumpy's.
    Several Expat - groups gather there due to the first class food and to socialize.

    You always find nice people there. For breakfast, lunch or dinner. Saturday night they have life music.

    If you look for top food for fair rates and like to have a chat with other guys, go to Grumpy's.

    And the owner, Ralf, is always available for a chat and certainly he can give you a lot if advise about living in Dumaguete.

    Private garden: - Never been closed as far as I remember, renovations a couple of years ago to some of the rooms, kitchen & main house maybe, but always had cold beer despite that. Gate is usually kept closed to keep undesirables & stray dogs out, as the in house German Shepherd is always ready for an unexpected meal. Unless, the owner has developed some form of teleporting his property to other locations, I'd imagine it's still on the beach.

    Spelling, punctuation and grammar was far too good. Post was also made from an electronic device...which I'm not sure Ralph knows how to operate. :rolleyes:

    Andy's Private Garden on the beach in Mangnao is a popular hiding spot on Wednesdays for the Norwegian bunch and some of the wives. Lots of cold beer, wine, liquors etc. Simple food but reasonable and tasty.. I know a few members here who come for breakfast once in a while.. The resto and bar is right next to the beach. Always a breeze and quiet..

    Not sure if there are any groups for couples, there weren't when I was there, although you will likely become friends with other couples and will end up doing things together. There is usually a group of men that meets at McD or other areas I believe. I used to belong to a group of ladies that meets for lunches on Fridays at various restaurants.

    Being new to this area, my Filipina partner and I would like to socialize with other expat couples in Valencia/Dumaguete. Is anyone aware of any expat social groups or meetups? Thanks!
