It is a filipino restaurant, but in their extensive menu they have european and exotic food too. I tried their sashimi and was fresh and tasty. Very attentive and kind staff and even if crowded of people they served us in 10 minutes.

I've been many times in Kinabuchs Restobar, last time during the Baragatan Festival 2014 Every time I visited I had a great times. Good atmosphere, good music, and most of it excellent food. I always ordered Baby back ribs with mashed potatoes and I always enjoy my meals, indeed. Staff are attentive, professional and well-trained. Highly recommended.

We tried Croc Meat cooked like they call sisig. It is okay and taste like chicken. The other food are affordable too good for group and food tripping!

Best fresh seafood restaurant in town. Large seating capacity, clean, quiet, no waiting in line, no reservations necessary. Reasonably priced and great tasting food.

We were on our way to another restaurant when our driver suggested this place. The place was great and service was fast. We ordered their crocodile sisig as recommended by their staff and we loved it. We also ordered crispy pata which is very crunchy and has only a small fat just as we requested. Other orders we had the... More

Location is quite near the hospital so it's a good place to eat while waiting for your flight... Service was fast and efficient and food was good! We tried the dinakdakan (yummy! just like sisig) and tamilok (only the brave amongst us tried it! lol!) and their beef salpicao was super yummy! All in all, a great place to eat!... More

The restaurant has been recommended to us by the locals and is well known by all the tricycle taxis. Transport back to the hotel is never a problem as there are always tricycle taxis waiting outside the restaurant. The best time to go to the restaurant would be around 5:30pm before the crowd arrives as it is more quiet and... More

Went at Kinabuch's for dinner with my family. The service was fast though the crew assigned to us was unwelcoming. Kept a serious face and as if not delighted serving us. Anyway, the service did not kept us from appeciating the good food that they served. This is where we tried the Tamilok. We were 9 in all but only... More

I heard of the place while watching Bizarre Foods and wanted to try it myself. Now that I've tried it I know that they really are that good with food. We tried the Croc Adobo and of course the famous Tamilok (ordered the breaded one) which were surprisingly good. Definitely worth visiting!

I love their sisig, laing and inihaw na pusit which is kinda sweet because it is fresh. The servings are quite big; good thing we brought our appetite. Nope, we didn't try tamilok even if it is one of their signature dishes. I heard it is interesting though.
