The place is very cozy and truly lives up to its island bar reputation. The decor really makes you feel that there's a beach somewhere close by. The food is good. I had the Beef Pochero and it was pretty tasty, and my partner had an anchovy pizza. It was good although the anchovies were a little too salty. The... More

Ate here a few times the food is good except for the beef stroganoff that was just chewy meat in a sauce, served with no noodles or rice....wtf Had a few soups and other food that was all good. Beer is cold. I never understand why a places with 10 staff can't give good service.

We ate at Cou Cou's twice during our 3 night stay at Bantayan, the food is excellent, we really liked everything about this restaurant. The pizza's are wonderful, possibly the best pizza I had in the Philippines and as good as I would expect from a restaurant in the UK. The budget local meals are very good and great value.... More

This was a good restaurant, we went twice during our trip, once at lunchtime for some drinks and pizza (which was delicious) and again in the evening for dinner, the pineapple fried rice was delicious. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Also has a pool table.

Our first night in Bantayan, we apprehensively went into this restaurant because one of us was craving pizza. After perusing the menu, we decided on the mexican pizza. It was delightfully spicy with lots of beef & bell pepper. On our second night on the island, we decided to go back to this restaurant due to the good food. Their... More

The other restaurants on the market street in Santa Fe provide also good food. For example HR restaurant (with a small coctail bar outside. Also "Blue Ice" and the new Italian... More
