The beach resto that made our visit very special!

We were introduced by our beach hotel's owner, the wonderful Mai and the authenticity of this beach restaurant with simple but elegant, deliciously fresh-from-the sea specials each evening prepared with zest by the remarkable chef/owner had us going back for 3 of the 3 remaining nights of our visit!

Imagine low season, everything is closed and Donsol has a sad and lost atmosphere. But when Julietta saw us walking on the beach she immediately invited us in for a couple of famous Baracuda Julietta's and changed our entire holiday. She managed to arrange a firefly boat ride the same evening and underground river visit the next day. Finally she... More

Seafood was AMAZING and the hostess cute as can be. Price was somewhat in the high end but well worth it and the free shots (which according to the hostess was the only way to cure my classic asia-stomach issues!) were a fun a welcoming twist.

We first heard of this restaurant on this tripadvisor website and thought we might give it a try as our hotel is quite near it. When we tried to visit during lunch hour, we thought we had gone to a wrong place because we had to go through what looked like a deserted garden with no one around with a... More

A must go! Super service and honest food with great pricing. Very creative kitchen and nice atmosphere. Try to get a table outside, must make a reservation at least 2 days in advance.....

I spent every night of my stay in Donsol at BARacuda, so whilst I can not compare it to others places in Donsol, I can say those were the best meals I had in the Philippines! The prawns are amazing, the fish is so fresh, and Juliette's pesto is so yummy I had it every night too. Juliette will welcome... More

Came here after the good comments on tripadvisor and had to leave a reaction here. The food was amazing (know its a cheesy superficial american phrase but had to use this word) Juliette is a person that you should experience. The way she flies from table to table, in her summerdress, like a honeybird seeking for flowers, is something you... More

Upon entering we where greeted by the lovely owner. She showed us our seats and chit chatted a little before showing us the menu. She gave us recommendations. Food was awesome we had a nice barracuda partnered with her Famous pesto. What made this place amazing is the way she treats her costumers. More like old friends visiting than just... More

My wife and I ate here five nights in a row during our recent trip to donsol. The decor is rustic, the ambience relaxed and intimate, the sunsets spectacular, cocktails excellent, the food simple but very fresh and cooked to perfection and the wonderful owner Juliette is a lesson in hospitality. She really cares about her customers and is a... More
