If you have no place to go or are just in town for a few nights, Kinabuch is a place to go. Don't get me wrong, they have good food but not great food that you cannot get in Manila. For the foreigners then this is one place to go.

What they have going for them is their location. They're very accessible. Good place to hang out for drinks. Their food is pretty average.

We ended up in Kinabuch on our first night in PP (it was one of the few places open after 10pm) and were not disappointed. The food was great and the service was lovely. The atmosphere was also nice.

Expansive grounds with plenty of seating. TV's all around. Bustling and popular place - you sometimes have to track down the servers but the food is very good. Kinilaw (ceviche type dish) and fried snapper were tasty
