My girlfriend and I had a late lunch / early dinner at Bahay Kubo. I did not have high expectations since the restaurants we had visited at Samal was average but this place was so good that I will recommend it to everyone visiting Samal. We had great seafood for starter. First starter was (sorry if I'm wrong) smoked blue... More

We attended one evening to celebrate our son's coming of age. Proprietor Alphonse made it a night to remember with a superb array of dishes combining the best of European and Asia cuisine. The restaurant itself has a very relaxed feel within delightful gardens, with the option of an elevated dining area with sea views and gentle breezes. A good... More

So we decided to try this restaurant. Fortunately, it is very accessible, few meters away from Central Warehouse. As we get inside, we were welcomed by... More

Okay, let's face it, Samal island is a beautiful place but it's not a place for foodies. For nice wine and good food it's usually necessary to take the ferry over to Davao. Fortunately, there is Alphonse and Jaqueline's Bahay Kubo, a hidden gem, that is a must for everyone visiting Samal island. This is not your average restaurant, though.... More

Even before our orders were served, we got delicious complementary. I always like their salad to start. No printed menu. Choices of pork, beef, fish or pasta. And I can assure you that whatever you chose, you will enjoy every bite of it :-) splendid dishes. Good choices of red & white wine. Love their dessert called 'hot love' and... More

it's the perfect resto to spend your birthday on at an island. no usual printed menu. just say your meat (pork, beef or fish) and side dish (rice, pasta, veggies) preferences and chef alphonse's gonna create a meal intimately yours. splendid dishes at just the right price. i especially love the only dessert he calls "Hot Love"
