Very Chinese, lack of charm

Going to a seafood village, you expect as a westerner to be able to order some white wine with the seafood. They only had one bottle in room temperature, then it is difficult to be overly enthusiastic. The food was OK, but we've eaten better on Bohol. The service was great, so the whole experience... read more

This restaurant is very bad. Bad service (nobody did speak any english words) who didnt know whats on stock, bad food which did come step by step so we did not eat together. Restrooms were in a really bad condition which made it impossible to wash hands. We wouldn't go there again.....!!!!!

JJ's seafood village near the Bohol seaport is not a good place to dine. Food is not outstanding. It lacks identity and "taste." You won't be happy eating here. There might be some in the menu that can be a favorite, but most of it tastes bad and tasteless. It may be affordable but not a priority place to visit... More

This restaurant is close to the ferry terminal and a nice place to grab a meal before boarding the ferry. Standout dishes were the tuna and roast pork Sinanglay, the sisig, lechon kwali & kangkong adobo. For 5 pax our meal came up to Php1500.
