They are indeed good backlinks. It is a network but its not a spam network. Each website is about food...a different type of food. All of the content on these sites is of very high quality.
These are good backlinks but they are all coming from the same network and that in itself should be the problem.
Like I said, I bought the site assuming there would be no issues because it has stood the test of time of all the panda updates.
Granted, this site still does rank top 10 for its main phrase so all hope is not lost, I am assuming google simply discredited the network links as the content is solid.
