Veue Cabins is a modern beach cabin concept located in one of the hidden treasures of the north--Patar Beach, Bolinao.
The name "Veue" was taken from the old French-Latin word meaning "viewpoint". We loved their clean and relaxing cabins resembling those modern box houses in Europe, plus we had a great front view of the beautiful off-white sandy stretch embracing the deep, blue waters of Patar. Staying here feels like a home away from home, complete with everything you need in a beach house.

HEY HANDSOME is a Southeast Asian restaurant collaboration of Chef Nicco Santos of Your Local and Charles Paw of Hole in the Wall. Its name is inspired by how Singaporeans call potential customers to their establishments--"Hey, Handsome"--just like "Hi, Pogi" in local terms.
The food portions are huge, yummy, and provide good value for money. Most foodies rave about it because of the consistent quality of the food.

Nerua Guggenheim Bilbao was the last restaurant Chef Chele worked for before coming to the Philippines, and he considers Chef Josean Alija as one of his mentors. Naturally, having these two old friends cooking together for the first time here in Manila was bound to result into something really special.
