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!

Been here for lunch right before our flight back to Manila. It is near the Puerto Prinesa Airport. Anyway, foods are soooo delicious, the relaxing ambiance, fast service, nice staff. They have free mixed fruits place in coconut shell. Our food can be good for 4, but we ate all of it, just the two of us! HAHA. So delish!!!

Don't miss dining in Kalui Restaurant during your stay in Puerto Prinsesa. Amazing theme as an art haven, and very indie vibe. And food was superb, Kalui special was highly recommended (set meal). Need to be barefoot when you enter the wooden floor so make sure your feet are clean. Needs reservation specially during peak season in Puerto Prinsesa.

When we went there we were greeted at the door and shown to our table. Inside there are many things to see, and buy if you want too. The food we could not fault, lovely in everyway, the service was tops. Room to have a party, or just to be on your own.

Although we had read great reviews on this restaurant we hadn't expected it to be this good. Service was super fast. Seafood was superb. Setting and atmosphere Bali style. Booking is essential but tables are turned over quite fast so if you didn't get to book, try arriving closer to 8pm and you should be fine. Doubt you would get... More

We had our family lunch and the kids loved the food and the ambience - going barefoot! Delicious food worth the wait! Nice art works featuring Filipino artists! Service was okay so hope they can improve in that area.

My recommendation for this restaurant has long been overdue. The fam and I were there last April, and we chose this place since it ranked highly here in Tripadvisor. I must say the glowing reviews were not overrated! It went beyond our expectations. We made dinner reservations directly from our hotel the night before, knowing that it was quite popular.... More
