We were able to secure a table at Kalui because of an invite from a group of ladies from Iloilo whom we met early that day during our Honda Bay Tour. That is if we only want since we don't have a prior reservation. The place is native with a modern twist. Interior design is great, love their collection of... More

Our Taxi Driver made this recommendation and it was definitely the best Food we had on our trip around the Philippines. The Restaurant is nicely decorated, Service is friendly although not over-efficient. We enjoyed a Valentine´s dinner with many different and fabulous courses and absolutely loved it. Although nice freshly made fruit Juice. While cuisine on the Philippines is a... More

We loved the food, decor and the whole experience. It was great too that they could accommodate our last minute, early dinner reservation. Good thing some people cancelled. TIP: reserve your table early.

It's, by far, the best set meal I had in PPS. Next time I'll visit, I'll try the ala carte as welll. Price is just right. The service was fast, the servers were friendly and proactive, the place is comfy and great with lots of arts and craft at the back of the restaurant. You should not miss this when... More

We got an invite for dinner at the Kalui restaurant. We arrived at the place and found it packed. We didn't have a reservation but surprisingly we were able to get in. We had to take off our shoes and walk barefoot on the shiny wooden floor which I thought was a bit exotic with a homely feel. We were... More

...and place. "Wow, is this place always full like now?" That was what i had in my mind when we stepped in. To avoid disappointment of not getting a seat and going home empty stomach, book your table before hand. We almost had that experience, fortunately the good staff managed to squeezed us in between the tight flow with one... More

This was one of the best, if not the best dining experience of my life. The food quality, the ambiance, the company, in beautiful Puerto Princesa, Palawan. We were served a 5 course meal, Japanese style, seated on the floor with pillows. Shoes off of course! The food and service were amazing on this pre-set meal. There are only two... More

We ate here during our Puerto Princesa vacation via reservation of our pension house's front desk staff. 1st dinner batch is served at 630p, 2nd batch is at 830p. We opted for the former. We ordered their seafood sinigang, shrimp and pusit sisig, fern salad and fruit shakes. The food is your typical Filipino dish with a slight twist, i.e,... More

Ok so I made a reservation two months ahead because I want everything to be perfect for my date. I called again one month prior and made sure I have that reservation. Come the day of the reservation itself, they lost our reservation and told us that they are already fully booked. Good thing I insisted and it could have... More
