I've been in Barretto with my mum on holiday in the Philippines for nearly three weeks now. We have visited this fast-food restaurant a few times now. The price at the moment is 140 peso per adult. If you don't want the buffet they also have an a la carte menu which is cheap too. They will bring a jug... More

Rico's was at the top of my list since it was budget friendly and filling. So we went there to eat after a gruelling four hour bus ride from Manila. We were tired and hungry and the food took too long to be served. Nothing special about the taste of the food.

There are several rico's restaurants. There is one with buffet and one which is open for 24 hours. The food is cooked fresh and cheap. The buffet spread is just right and for about 150 pesos only

Their newly renovated function room looks neat! The All-You-Can-Eat Buffet is affordable and food tastes good! We attended a wedding reception at Rico's last August, we enjoyed our time there especially the newly refurbished function room

I visited this fast food and buffet restaurant a few times during my visit. The price at the time of writing for the buffet is 140 pesos all you can eat. There was a good selection of meat dishes, rice, noodles and some desserts items. Drinks were also available to purchase. A bottle of coke, Sprite or Royal would set... More

This resto has 2 types of buffet; one for P140 and the other one for P175. They offer "lutong bahay" foods. The only difference is the one with the higher amount has unlimited drinks and you'll eat in an airconditioned room. Overall, the food is good. I highly recommend their beef steak and sweet and spicy dilis.

We heard about this restaurant from Biyahe ni Drew, a travel-related mini-television series. When we went on June 8, 2016 at 1:00 PM (lunch service, open from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM), they relocated the buffet area from the roomier second floor into the first floor so that only about twelve tables were available for customer use (seating about forty...
