Have been re-directed to this restaurant by locals. It was strange that I must book table in advance, but after I have realized why... They are simply full of people, locals and foreigners every day... By the way, they do not work on Sunday and Monday (it was pity as I was willing to come next day which was Sunday).... More

Deserves all the good reviews it's been getting . We ordered the set menu and fresh shakes , the tuna steak and prawns all the way to the battered eggplant were wonderful ! Please make sure to call to make a reservation :)

Simple menu, waiters not really observant, and furthermore the menu was the same for lunch and dinner, not being able to choose much of a difference. Credit cards were accepted, surprisingly! Compared to many other restos in Puerto Princesa the place's alleged reputation is in my opinion vastly overrated.

This is the fabled place all the other travelers in the Philippines are talking about. You'd be a fool not to go! The food is amazing and the price is ridiculously low for the quality. Great arty setting. Reserve!

This popular restaurant has probably the best seafood on the island. An open kitchen in full view from the guest area guarantees that everything is done right. I had deliciously cooked grilled shrimps with vegetables and sea weed. A few negatives that pull down the overall rating from being excellent: I was seated (solo) in what obviously was one time...

We've eaten here four times (2010 and 2014), twice that we've been to Puerto Prinsesa. My boyfriend is allergic to seafood, but never when it is fresh and Ka Lui never failed us, 0 out 4. And I think that it improved without really changing. If we can, we'd always have our dinners here whenever we're in the place.

I am proud of this restaurant as a local in Palawan. Food is delicious and well presented. The ambiance feels like home in the Philippines.

Kalui certainly suprprised us in a positive way. Staff are very proffesional as so the place gives that feeling. We saw a certificate of being TOP500 restaurant in Asia and they deserve it. I ordered a fish plate for around 220pesos and it was delicious. Also got a soup and fresh fruits at the end which I did not expect.

The food here is epic as is the restaurant atmosphere. We had their taster set menu-most impressive was the roll of fish round sugar cane in coconut milk. This dish was delicately handled and fish cooked to perfection! One of the grilled fish came over cooked but will pass this one as the rest was so good!
