    Oh, I'm sorry. My mistake. You are right.

    We were at Grumpy's last Friday for breakfast and Saturday night we went for dinner and listened to the life music.

    Breakfast was phenomenal.
    I had a German style one and my asawa the philippino one. Both were freshly cooked with too quality ingredients. Absolutely delicious. Coffee and fresh made carrot juice very tasty.

    Dinner on Saturday was again a very nice dining experience. I had a Goulash with Spätzle, asawa went for some pasta with fish. Goulash was made from tender loin, Spätzle freshly homemade.

    All dishes are freshly cooked and homemade. Even bread and fries.
    Meat and fish are of high quality. Only pork and beef tenderloin get used.

    It was great to have dinner and listen to the music. Every Saturday is open mic and some really good musicians from all over the world are performing. Great guitar players and drummers. It has nothing to do with karaoke. Ralf, owner of grumpies, is a very talented guitar player and singer too. We really enjoyed it.

    Service at Grumpy's is excellent. Very friendly staff.

    If you just want to go out for a coffee and done sweets or cakes it's the right place as well. Homemade cakes are very delicious. I recommend the cheese cake with strawberries. There are various nice deserts as well.

    If you are looking for top quality food I can recommend Grumpy's absolutely. Actually I don't know a better restaurant in Duma if you go for western cuisine.

    And Yesterday evening I was the first time there for the Saturday Night Jam Sessions, that means Musicians on a very high level from different countries ( Austria, Scotland U.S.of A.....) make in the best Jam Session Tradition very good NEW versions of music everybody knows, everybody likes!
    And even me, who doesnt like "Old Musik" or even Cover Band Music at all was very impressed about that good feeling what that musicians there produce!
    My absolute highlight yesterday was the version of that very old Spencer Davis Hit "I,m a man"- thought before that the Band Chicago made the very best version out of it, but since yesterday night I know: That was a mistake, cause the best version ever I heard yesterday night in GRUMPY's played from a very good Blues/RnR-Gitarrist, a very, very skillful Bassguitarist and a Saxophone Genius from the U.S,of A!
    Beside that I had before an extraordinary meal!
    Try it and you will forget other Restaurants with a "similar" offer!

    Hi Fritz,

    couldn't agree more.
    It was a fantastic night and I feel privileged to listen to a few highly skilled musicians. The bass player, Jimmi Johnson, and the man at the Saxophone, Conrado, gave an outstanding performance to the audience. It was really nice. "I am the man" was very well played, among others.

    Listening to the music, having excellent food and drinks, great company....... It's more fun in the Philippines.

    For sure I will be back next Saturday. Can't wait to witness great session again.

    First time at Grumpy's and the dining experience was excellent. A mouth melting Cordon Bleu with fresh made mashed potatoes and a very good brown gravy, reminded me of the good old childhood days, best cooking tradition grandma style... wife hat Tom Yam shrimps and was very happy, also a gorgeous portion... Prices are slightly higher than other places, but worth every peso... you get what you pay for and here it's pure quality on a very high level... looking forward to come back to try more great food

    We had lunch at Grump's today around 12:15 'ish. The lasagna was quite good and appeared freshly made, the bread was real nice. The asawa had schnitzel w/ mushroom gravy and boiled parsley potatoes. Plus Grumpy brought us an appetizer that was a nice treat. If you want a fast food place go to Mickey D's or wherever. Our food was well worth a small wait. A/C would be nice for lunch time in the glassed in area. Grumpy was not grumpy at all. He might be though if you were to kick him in the itlog area but I wouldn't recommend that. :bash:tiphat:
