Great cheese fondue

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.

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

so much talk and no walk. they claim to have the best meat in the area and about everywhere is written that its imported. was mediocre at best and so overpriced. they basically just charge for the show off. burger was meh. steak is better.

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.

Amazing restaurant....food was fantastic, only complaint was the service was a bit slow (but that could be a Filipino thing)....we ate there between every dive and most dinners! Definitely recommend it!

This is the only 5 star restaurant in all of Puerto Galera! Papa Fred's eat your heart out. Hemingway's just totally eclipsed you in my opinion. The foie gras was delectable! The mixed salad was perfectly dressed. Fresh and delicious imported steamed vegetables. Tried the spetzel Asia side and was delighted. The Rib-Eye was cooked perfectly. Not the all organic... More

The food was good, Bicol Express and my wife, a soup. It was, however, way over what one would expect to pay at a bistro at lunchtime. The service was friendly, if distracted and a bit hard to get. There are better places for lunch now at Sabang.

This was a really nice surprise in the Sabang beachfront. I went to this restaurant which was host to the weekly "Classic Club" lunch event. It was my first time attending this event and eating at a restaurant that was not part of my resort package deal. We had a very nice 3-course meal as well as drinks and dessert!... More

atmosphere was nice enough... free Wifi... beachfront restaurant in Sabang. Only soup option is the soup of the day...today was cabbage soup... not overly appealing. I tried their "Works Burger" which could not be said to have the works... it barely had anything on it... but at least some lettuce and onions and cheese... a bit over done, but flavor... More
