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.

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.

For dinner with the whole family, we made individual orders. The food was nicely presented and the staff friendly, but the quality of the dishes were no match to their price-tag. We will never go back there

I was desperate for a quality steak and found it at Hemingway's. The food is always top notch and the setting which overlooks the bay with the floating bar is excellent.

Just a great meal and the beef looked good too. We don't eat it much in the tropics, but their fondue was the right consistency and the cheese was great ementhal.
