We went several times to the Jambalaya cafe during our stay. At first we were a little shocked about the Makati style prices for the food but in hindsight they were quite justified for the good stuff we got. Specially the jambalaya and cocktails are amazing - try the Mrs. Sippy.

Like other reviews a bit expensive. The price I paid for lunch...Jambalaya, fruit shake, bread and water was what accommodations for one night in Port Barton were. The food was good cajun style and the service was quick and friendly. Maybe because I was the only person there! The place is small but unique. Worth a try if your looking... More

Cant really recommend the place. Its expensive for what you get and the place otself is a bit too funky even for my taste (and id like to think im good with neon). Try the food, sure, but little reason to come back.

I wasn't terribly impressed the one time that I ate here for something hot (thus the rank of three), but I kept coming back for the sandwiches. If you're going out for a long day of hiking or beach combing grab a sandwich (or two) to go. They're nothing special, just a simple sandwich, but something makes it remarkable. The... More

Very expensive. The Filipina waitress is quite nice, but her husband (a foreigner) is not nice at all. The food is okay, but nothing special. Everything is expensive, and you have to pay for everything. I just asked for bread (because they had a sign saying that their home-bread was amazing), and the guy just came and asked me "do... More

Definitely worth a look.. Quirky building. Delicious cajun style fish. There's probably cheaper food around but this is a worthwhile treat.

I had the food here a few times now and more and more delicious as i thought so far!! We'd tried me and my friends couldn't even better than here in Jambalaya. For the other we've tried so far it's even more worst and not good quality. Jambalaya is small place but full of Special food coming from Louisiana and... More

Coldest beer at Port Barton! Try their sandwiches and Fish Special, fairly good! The shakes are also delish. Price a bit higher than other restaurants but food is really delicious. Dined here twice during our stay at Port Barton. Had a little chat with the nice owner. Restaurant interior is really small, lots of words of wisdom hanging around. Some... More

Their signature jambalya is delish, coffee and shakes very good, cool spot to hang out and read a book, the service however is very bad and no wifi.
