Expensive for tiny portions.. The food was not fresh and a simple salad costing almost 5€ was in a tiny bowl dripping with dressing as if to hide something ... I would not even class it as a side salad.. Pretty dissapointing.. Would not occur to me to return here

Scrimping on breakfast was our way of saving to be able to splurge on our dinner at high-end restaurants when we were in Panglao. So when we chanced upon this hole-in-the-wall type during our 2nd day, it was like finding a gem in the middle of Alona. We tried their continental (P 120 or $3) and their Filipino breakfast (for...

My wife had a seafood platter and I ordered pizza. She was finished before I was served,it took 30 minutes for the pizza and was delivered to them from another shop. Waitresses take your order and then are not attentive in following up with their duties. Avoid it.

The fish & crabs are not fresh, even the price is much much higher than seaside in Manila near Mall of Asia.

Had a great meal right on the beach! Serenaded by the many beachside musicians.

Lured by the only band playing on the beach at dinnertime. The food was common beachfood grilled beside the beach. It's a great experience but they could add more salt and pepper for better taste. Cocktails are a disaster. It's all watered down, almost no alcohol in it.

Sea foods so fresh & tasty enough. Non-fattening. I like grilled sea foods, my fave!
