This tourist attraction is nothing really special at first and the buffet lunch is average but when everyone is eating the floating restaurant moves out into the river and you go for a ride which is quite pleasant with entertainment too and you end up at a tribal village with music and dance to watch and interact if you wish....

Spending 450 per person could have not worth it. When we arrived around almost lunch time, actually we were the last group to sit down at the boat. All others already started eating and by the time they finished eating, we weren't yet. But the buffet was closed immediately. It seems that other groups enjoyed the buffet more than us... More

The only reason to do this is to enjoy a different experience i.e having a buffet dinner in a boat sailing along the lake, to the accompaniment of live music. It seems a bit over priced (PHP 500), specially for the food they serve, but the overall experience is good. The food is all traditinal filipino, so if you are... More

It's a little bit overpriced coz we thought they are also going to serve us big shrimps (sinugpo) or crabs which is on the pictures when we bought our tickets for the buffet. Good for first timers but I don't think it's well worth doing it next time. Someone told us it's better if we did it in the evening... More

This combination of a buffet dinner with river cruise was one of the best attractions in Bohol. A bit overpriced if we talk about quality of the food (quite OK, but I can’t say it was as tasty as expected by paying 500 PHP). Musicians song too laud (in fact, it was completely unnecessary in such ride, a quiet tranquil... More

I wasn't expecting much out of this attraction coz I thought it's just another buffet, but I was wrong. The food was good but nothing out of the ordinary Filipino fare. What sets it apart is the experience. We waited at the dock for just a few mins., then we were allowed to board the boat. It was spacious and... More

This was a very relaxing boat trip with fantastic Filipino food. The staff are friendly and it's a great way to mix with other travellers. Music was also provided which gave it a nice atmosphere.

Floating down the river through lush scenery while digging in to an all-u-can-eat buffet, what's not to like? Sure, a terrible band is playing, but somehow it adds to the ambiance Only one complaint, they ran out of beer!
