This restaurant is no Penthouse. And when I ordered a double margarita, I got two drinks. LOL! Anyway, the food is interesting here, to say the least. I don't even remember what I had it was so unremarkable. BUT my husband had really good fried parrot fish. The dish of the night, however, was the fruit bat soup. We were... More

Best place in town for traditional Palau food. Try the Fruit Bat, it will take your mind off eating for awhile. We enjoyed our selection but did feel it was average. Locals give high praise to this restaurant.

This is one of several places in Koror that you can order fruit bat. I do not like to eat anything that I would like to see in the wild and I would not order fruit bat, although several people in our large group ordered a fruit bat and split the dish. We ordered a curry that was quite delicious.... More

My boyfriend wanted to try the fruitbat, so we headed over to the penthouse. As recommended by others we did order the stuffed crab and wasn't disappointed. However my "boneless" chicken was not very good. The fruitbat came outin a big bowl of coconut milk. Our waiter was very helpful in assisting my boyfriend on disassembling the bat since it... More

we visited penthouse on the recommendation of it having great local food, but we came away disappointed. the cusine seems to be philippine influenced, not much in the way of local specialties. we had better mangrove crab elsewhere in koror than here (namely at mogmog), and the interior decor / lighting is boardroom bland. on top of this was poor...

Penthouse Restaurant located in downtown Koror. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Opens at 6:00a.m. and closes as late as 10:00 p.m.. Not too many choices but food was cooked to perfection. No long wait, never crowded (which is probably why there's only one server at a time). Nothing fancy or extravagant. Take-out orders available. Palau's infamous stuffed crab always available....
