Good spot for local food

I ate here on the recommendation of a dive master at Sam's. Glad I did. Nothing fancy but locals were eating dinner there. I had local fish soup with fried rice. Wish they had draft Red Rooster; only one type (amber) and only in cans. Waiter and main person wouldn't give me the wifi password... read more

Penthouse offers a restaurant hidden behind the busy main street of Palau. This restaurant is a spot locals visit often so you know it is a good place to eat. The restaurant is very affordable and the portions are huge. The food is very good and options range from noodles, fish, tofu, and everything in between. The portions are huge... More

I've been to the Penthouse many times so it gets boring, maybe need to change the menu. But then again it offers the best mix of international and local fare on the island. Some of it is feel good food, while others is decent international food. Must try the deserts.

Try local dishes cooked the way it should be...the Taro soup is a Must! They have fruitbat cooked in coconut milk, taro bread, fried reef fish..oooh the parrot fish is a favorite. And if you want to extend your palate, try the stuffed crab, fresh sashimi with wasabe. This family-run restaurant is situated in the heart of downtown Koror, walking... More

Ive heard many having good food at this restaurant, but it smelled like cleaning supplies, and seemed if we were in a ghetto apartment building. The food was not good :(

We went to this place for lunch on our first day in Palau. All I can say was ... poor choice. Nothing was good for our 4 of us. So if you don't have to then find other place to eat.

Our local friend invited us for an afternoon snack and picked us up and brought us to the Penthouse. It was a beautiful afternoon so we decided to sit outside on their patio. Hubby had a generous slice of chocolate cake and I had a slice of blueberry cheesecake, both were delicious.

The Penthouse hotel offers bat on the menu- which is an extremely unique dining experience. I wouldn't say it was particularly tasty, but they do well with the oddity. The service was also great with the waitress almost literally cutting up the bat for me, explaining how best to eat and get the most out of the experience. Definitely recommend.

This is a favorite among locals for meetings, even for breakfast meetings. Unfortunately, breakfast here is a bit pricey and the choices are a bit limited. What is highly recommended here are the cakes and pastries. The cookies are excellent and are relatively cheap. A $2 pack of chocolate chip cookies is a good take-out for your loved ones at... More
