Food average. Price OK. service slow....

BBQ seafood taste OK, pretty much the same for all restaurant alone the beach. Be sure to pick the fresh seafood and it won't taste bad. The price is cheap. But the service is very slow, expected to wait.

For lunch, we were the only one's there, but the food took a bit long to come seeing as there were not other people there. Once the food did come, I enjoyed it. I ordered the pork and pineapple dish. The mango shake was good as well. The prices were one of the best on Alona Beach, but not as... More

We went there 3 friends. Nice BBQ if cooked proper! The waitress forgot my chicken skewers, so my friends finished eating before I got my meat. When it finally arrived I had finished my sides so was just sitting there with a chicken skewers. Impossible to cut through and then I notice it is raw - like not cooked at... More

We ate twice for dinner and once for breakfast. Most of what we ordered (shrimps, crab, mango crepe) were fulfilling and worth the price. The vegetables they put in my Sinigang Na Hipon were pretty weird, though (cabbage being the weirdest), since I haven't seen anyone put those in this dish but the soup tasted good and really sour so...

It took so long to wait for the food, wait to pay and wait for the change. Yet, staff is still friendly. We had grilled food there, the taste was good, but by the time they delivered, it was already a bit cool. Spent PHP700 for 2 pax.

The staff here could really not give a rats ... about customers, honestly. We ate here a few times, once for dinner, once for lunch and once for dessert and always the same bad service. They stand around with their mouth hanging open. When drinks are ready it just sits at the bar for 15 minutes. My husband had to... More

The grilled assortment of food we ordered tasted good. Though it took more than 30 mins for the food to be served at our table. It could be because of the grilling time plus there were lots of customers dining at that time. Admittedly, the number of people dining there was what lured us to try their food (the place... More

Pyramid Emie is a Beach Resort and Restaurant on Alona beach. The restaurant is right on the beach and is perfectly located to enjoy the view and relaxing sounds of the sea. We stayed at the resort for 3 nights and had all of our meals here - incredibly we didn’t have to shop around, which was a first for... More

Avoid at all costs if you are a local Filipino, they will only serve you quickly if you are a foreigner. We dined as a group of 7 Filipinos and were served first, yet had our food served last. Our barbeque which come of the grill first was served to us last as korean tourists got the first batch. Even... More
