Great Location

We were adventuring along the beach and decided to have a drink at Hemingway/s. What a wonderful location overlooking the beach. It was great just sitting there and watching the world walk past. The drinks were reasonably priced and the girls were friendly and efficient.

Situated right on the beach it looked like the ideal spot for dinner as the sun went down. Ordered pasta which then seemed to take an age to arrive. When it did it was a basic, run of the mill pasta similar in standard to a mall spaghetti house serving in Manila. Service was slow. Not very efficient. The bill...... More

By going to this erstwhile highly rated restaurant one is subsidizing the owner's fine lifestyle which is fine indeed however the food service is slow and food rather off. Also the proudly declared "imported" olive oil was judged by all at the table as RANCID as well as the overly aged cucumber vinegar marinade salad. The owner while nice and... More

I must have walked past this restaurant 100 times and always resisted the urge to eat there having seen the menu and prices. Eventually though, I felt that I should not allow my prejudices to control me so this trip I ordered a table. The service was good and the food was definitely fine dining. It was the size of...

We ordered The Bavarian Steakhouse plate for my husbands birthday and we left the restaurant with a very full and happy tummy.. The Steak was cooked to perfection and trying German dish is a good decision - that's if you're into heavy meaty dishes. Friendly staff. The restaurant is facing the beach. A bit expensive but worth your money! Try... More

I was here in March with my boyfriend for my birthday. It was right on the beach along the walkway to Big La Laguna. The ambiance was wonderful, the server was friendly, and we got our drinks and food in a friendly manner. Some of the things we tried were their mango shake, pretzels, and the ribeye steak. This is... More

My group of 4 had lunch here for the 5 days we were diving at Sabang Beach because it's the restaurant nearest our dive centre that served very decent food. Most times, we had fish and chips, and the fish used was fresh mahi-mahi. They also have good beers and german food, and pasta, and they are all very pricey!... More

The food is ok at Hemingway's but the service can be painfully slow. Especially during the evening. The burgers are good. The view out over Sabang Bay is nice.
