When we entered the place, a colleague of mine commented, "Ay bahay ni Mara Clara at Padre Damasu. Nasaan si Crispin?". He's referring to the famous characters of Jose Rizal's Noli Me Tangere. The house, now turned restaurant, looks like an old mansion from the Spanish era. Sitting nicely on the table is a picture of the old house before it got repainted. It's beautiful. I could imagine it must have been a comfortable house then.
