So, we decided to dine early to avoid the crowd and we make sure that we were not that hungry. Glad we did, loved the crocodile sisig and having... read more

We ate at Sea Slugs for lunch after an amazing morning paddle boarding. The food was pretty good but my boyfriend and I got sick. I caught a parasite due to poor food handling. I spent 2 weeks in bed on antibiotics after eating there. Be careful. Not the vacation I was hoping for...

I dont understand whats the fuss about this place! The food is average..service is extremely slow..its too crowded at almost all days..so unless you are prowling on one the tables since 7 pm, you'll be fighting hunger pangs for the rest of the night! only good things are the live band and that its right on the beach

The pizzas are good but the chicken adobo was much too rich. Good view from the beach and good live music on saturday night. Restaurant is not fantastic but it does the job.

A local suggested this place as a must-eat, so we went one evening. It has nice seating on the beach, so that felt inviting. The first night we went, the staff was rude and simply said, no tables. We came back the next night. That was a horrible decision. We were sitting waiting for our food while a band played.... More
