Still great 15 years after my first visit

After 15 years, I saw a sophisticated transformation of Kalui. What I remembered before were the food and the rustic but elegant wooden setup. It was tasteful and artful before but now it seems to have been more refined and more colorful even. The food is still fresh and tasty but the serving... read more

I wasn't expecting for a simple facade to have a cozy ambiance, excellent service & sumptuous food. The adage on the first impression last really applies to this restaurant. Palawan trip won't be complete without trying this restaurant.

What can I say, its not everyday that you get to eat barefoot. Its a great experience most importantly, it provides a happy atmosphere eventhough they are full packed when we went there. Food is okay. Not a lot of choices though. Is it worth a second visit? Maybe,No.

Great atmosphere, great food and service. Also suitable for demanding guests. I liked the rule, that you have to take the shoes off and leave it at the entry... Recommended

Good place to eat but was dissapointed with their Crispy Buntot because the taste was not the same as the first time we went there (2010).

Reservations are required with deposit! We guaranteed our seat by paying 1500 pesos to the hotel so they can make the reservation at Kalui Restaurant. We are a group of 6 adults and 3 kids, not all of us made it to dinner due to some kids "emergencies." The restaurant's ambiance is really good, Filipino Bahay Kubo- luxurious version. The... More

Most of the things I like in this place is the atmosphere and the fresh food. The staff are friendly and they serve with free dessert. My girlfriend recommend this restaurant and she said she been to this place many times.

Hubby and I had such an awesome experience at this restaurant. The first experience was when we had to take our shoes off before entering the place. Then we entered and there was so much things that will intrigue anyone who steps in there. And the food was so so great and the price is super right.
