It was my second time in PP, so I tried the other restaurants that I have not been to. Quite a nice place to dine, but the service is poor. We need to call the attention of the waitress to get what we wanted, although that time there were only few customers. Food was ok, specially those seafood mix with... More

Our night was spoiled by the arrogant waiter who took the orders for our whole party of 6 without making notes. We waited a long time for our beautifully prepared meals which arrived at intervals so long that some of us had finished before others had received their meals. So we waited patiently in the very hot room and eventually... More

Still under the radar for most local travelers, the Lotus Garden is a quaint restaurant featuring eclectic decor and an impressive garden. And if you want to stay there as well, they have rooms available at affordable rates.

We ate here because Ka Lui (next door) was full. The décor and ambience was nice (although they need to spray for mosquito under their sunken tables) and repair their floor boards as you are walking barefoot on them. The food was mediocre and took much too long to get to our table despite the fact there was only one... More

I would like to like this place more because the seafood dish that I had tasted good but something wasn't right and I got sick so I don't recommend eating here. My friend had the sushi and he said it was probably good a day or two before and didn't finish it. Overall there are much better restaurants around.

Not much to say... Mixed sushi for 1...the worst one I ate (and I ate a bunch of raw fish). Coraila crab & few fresh fish... Other food just banal...unefficient staff. Had to wait long to get our change & it was wrong...not in a mood to argue for 80PHP but still... I don't recommand...even if the place is nice.

The place looks very beautiful but the food isn't that good. They served us old, smelly rice which was not good anymore. The sad thing is that they did not come up with a good solution. The waitress afreed, but the cook said the rice was ok. So we left the place with an empty stomach...

The environment of this restaurant has very good taste... nicely decorated and with beautiful gardens around... the food was good and reasonable priced. The service was a little bit slow, but when the food arrived was hot and met our expectations. A very good place to dine in Puerto Princesa

The food was magnificently and imaginatively prepared and the setting - open-air, a bit Bali-esque - was atmospheric. It wasn't cheap (dishes around P 300, small San Mig 65) but it was well worth it. The portions are large, by the way.
