It's truly indeed a great experienced. The place is very cozy and the staffs are very friendly. We made reservation prior going there since we heard that this place is jam pack every Saturday. Their buffet is only served every Saturday (lunch and dinner for the price of 325/adult). It was surprisingly that it is crowded place. The ebi tempura,... More

Oh my goodness, I wished it was possible to take home their steamed prawns and leche flan. The flan was especially good - not overly sweet as it is commonly made in Philippine cuisine.

The buffet choices are filling enough but nothing I would particularly rave about. I don't think they refilled the servings fast enough - but I know they did their best. It's a nice enough place to eat, especially when you've got visitors to the City. Price is reasonable. Service is average. I would recommend in any case.

We were in Island City Mall, Tagbilaran City last week and discovered The Prawn Farm which was something new to us. It was a Saturday so the eat--you-can lunch buffet was available for only 325 Php/pax complete with bottomless drinks. They had a wide selection of main courses and desserts. What appealed to us most were the kinilaw na tanigue... More

New to Town or just Visiting, there are few Restaurants in the City that can provide a dinning experience worth mentioning, I'm giving this review on the Buffet which I eat at near every Saturday. Price, quality of the food and Service are all very good, remember that your eating a Buffet, not any restaurants best showing. Want a more... More

This is a place where you can escape from fast foods. The place is neat, with good lighting. The foods are good. My children like the beef with broccoli dish as well as the shrimps in chili garlic sauce. The foods are freshly cooked so you have to wait for some time. This is definitely not the place to go...

My family and I had lunch buffet at Prawn Farm upon our arrival to Bohol. When the table behind us remained empty for sometime, I hung my handbag on the seat beside me while my mother and I engaged in conversation. When my husband took the seat after a few minutes, I told him to mind my bag, but it... More

It looks like this place is popular for big groups and the staff prioritizes these big groups and have them served right away..so if you are a small group and want a quick bite..better find somewhere else to go.

A very clean and tidy restaurant where the food just adds to the overall experience. The dishes are freshly cooked and the waiters attentive, but not overly so. I recommend the seafood platter for two as an ideal introduction to this little gem of a place.

Probably the best restaurant in the Mall where it is situated. Not much character to the place although it is clean and tidy. Loved the sizzling hot plates of food and the view of the kitchen. Higher end pricing for Bohol, probably due to the location.
