    I imagine as with most non Filipino dishes here, it's hard to get the right ingredients. You do the best with what you can get.

    I took the wife to True Love last week. Ordered the jerk chicken and she got the grilled parrot fish. For me, the jerk chicken wasn't up to the taste and flavors I experienced while in Jamaica. The wife said she truly enjoyed the parrot fish and it was the first time she'd eaten it. Service was very good! Actually the service was exceptionally good!

    I concur. I went there today for lunch and had a very nice starter of Soup and cornbread (I believe included with all meals) and spoke to the Owner 'Orville' while my food was prepared. Very nice guy and very friendly. The place was spotless for a local eatery and he had see through windows so you can watch your meal being prepared in the immaculately clean kitchen. I was impressed. Also talking with the owner he recently did a renovation and enclosed part of the eating area with smoked glass windows to block out street noise and flies etc. he also added an air conditioner so it was very pleasant to eat there in midday sun. The food was very tasty and large portions for a very reasonable price IMPO. They are open from approx 8am till 10 pm and you can call in your order for pick-up if you like at 0905-707-1643 or 0905-268-3255.

    I enjoyed the food and conversation and will be back again.

    I believe I was there. I was sitting at the next table over, the guy with the longish hair and beard.

    That's a good review and I will show it to the owner. He appreciates any feedback.

    The privacy item is a tricky balance. Often you'll see friends and even new customers sitting at the same table. The inside area is probably better for a more quiet setting. We get a bit chatty outside.

    I was shocked to see this place just south of Robinson Mall about 1KM. What a Great Place and Vibe. Great atmosphere in this little cafe.
    Complimentary bowl of soup and cornbread was delicious.
    Both the Jerk Chicken and the Mutton Curry were beautiful and inexpensive.
    The staff all look and act like they really love being there and as a consequence the service is fabulous. Thyis place is spotless. Really good value . The Owner Orville Henry is Great to Chat with ! and well knowned in Jamaica for being a Great Chef !A Bit of Jamaica in The Philippines !

    I have no comment or concern with how a business promotes a charity event/program myself. I will ask they they be please kept separate on the forum though.

    There is an existing thread for the charity school program here: Charity - Adopting a School | Dumaguete Info

    Let's try to keep this thread on topic (food, service, reviews of the True Love restaurant).
