Ordered special of the day set and buttered shrimp, serving is quite big, just enough for me, my husband and 2 kids. I just wish the place is more ventilated, its hot from where we are seated. Food is average for me, grilled tuna steak is not fresh. What amazed me the most is the ladies comfort room, it is... More

Upon recommendation of our friends and kin who have been there, Kalui they said, should be one of our must-go-to restaurants in Puerto Princesa. The owner of Villa Saturnina Inn, who arranged the accommodations and tours of my family, included this in our itinerary and graciously did the reservations for us a few days before our arrival. (Make sure you... More

Ka Lui is a must for any visitor to Puerto Princesa. Your mean will be an art experience as well as a dining pleasure. Make sure to call in for a reservation for lunch or dinner, because Ka Lui fills up fast, even as they keep expanding. Remove your shoes and come on in! The native, Balinese-style decor with baskets,... More

Went to Kalui for dinner a few days ago, the sashimi seaweed salad was an impressive surprise welcome dish. Their Kalui special set for 2 was filling and an as sumptuous spread. Their cordon bleu was also very good. Try their Coconut shake as it is not as common as mango or banana shake around Philippines. This is an ideal... More

This is number 1 recommend restaurant in TA so I decided to bring my family for dinner. I was disappointed when I asked our hotel to reserve a table for us (8 pax) when I was advised that I need to make a deposit for a big group. So I decided to book 2 tables for our group instead. So... More

This place is a bit overstated, it did not meet my expectations. Food is average. There are places who serve much tastier meals. Well, except for the fish steak. Customer service training to the waiters. I asked one waiter to cut my young coconut in half to eat the thin meat inside but he just shrugged me off and said... More
