The best thing about this place is the ambiance and unique yet beautiful interiors. You have to deposit your footwear and go barefoot which was alright when eating but not in the toilet. The food choices were local and delicious. You need to have a reservation or you will be in for a long wait.

I've been many times in Kalui Restaurant and my last visit was November 2013. Every time I ordered in Kalui Restaurant I always enjoy my foods. My favorite is Roll Fish Fillet in a curry sauce and it's superb! The environment is native inspired and clean. The staff are helpful and attentive. Highly recommended.

The same delicious food...almost 25 years ago I've been to this resto and enjoy eating and reading books with beautiful garden surroundings, native house made from nipa hut, but now from bamboo roofing. You need to take off your shoes or slippers before going inside the resto. You can taste the freshness of every food that you order...try Kalui Special... More

I had high expectations for this restaurant even bragging to my foreign boyfriend how good and delicious this is. You have to be early here and needs reservation coz they get fully booked all the time. The place is is very nice with fruits design all over and bamboo floors and clay jars for washing hands. Unfortunately no water there... More

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

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
