First time I visited Grumpy's today - tried yesterday but it was closed. Note that the details in the Showcase section are wrong the place is NOT open on Mondays. We were greeted by a young waitress who took our drink orders and then from whom I later learned was the "owner", Ralf - who was not grumpy at all but very friendly. He explained that the food will take some time as everything is prepared from scratch - even the potatoes cut after we make the order for french fries. He gave me a tour of the place including the kitchen which was absolutely spotless. I ordered the schnitzel my partner the beef curry. The schnitzel (& fries) was huge and the curry was a big size. Both of us found the food excellent. Both the waitress and Ralf checked if we were happy and did we need anything more . At the end when the bill arrived it was on par with what I pay in and around Dumaguete but the food was of a quality that I will certainly return and probably make it a regular. I spoke to Ralf about his future plans and it sounds exciting - so certainly I will be keeping an eye out for those changes. He is awaiting his business permit at the moment and will seek to make the changes after he gets the permit and one of those changes will address the complaint above about noise - which really didn't worry us at lunch today. Music is also on the horizon and that is something I certainly will be looking forward to. Ok, to find it coming from Dumaguete, it's after Gie-Gies Bar then just after Petron and exactly opposite the Nissan Dealership on the South Road. Coming from Bacong start looking to your left after going past Thunder Road - again exactly opposite the Nissan Dealership on the right.
