When I told my friends (& family) I was going to Puerto Princesa, immediately, they said you have have to try KaLui...so even before we left, we already booked dinner as we were told it is always packed. We found the place, and true enough the place was full! They could not initially find our reservation, whether they did or... More

Excellent local food, fresh ingredients. Seaweed starter was very refreshing. Excellent value. Good idea to book, we had to go late as earlier time was fully booked.

Seafoods were great. Everytime i visit this restaurant reminds me of the palaweno hospitality, the staff are great. And most specially the food. They serve it well, the taste is simply great. Try to eat here if you happens to visit puerto princesa city, palawan.

Got the assistance of our hotel receptionist to place a reservation. The place can be packed by big groups, so it is always better to call. Upon arrival, you're welcomed by very friendly staff. Shoes off please before you go inside the restaurant. No a/c at Kalui but no worries, it is really cool and airy. Menu is degustation -... More

Went here on a recommendation and were gobsmacked. The place was so nice, really really nice. We thought we would be up for an expensive dinner but it was so reasonably priced. Then the food - it was so good. Absolutely sensational. We booked for the next night and came again. If we had been staying longer in PP we... More

Apart from the excellent and fresh food they serve, KaLui is also a must-visit for the restaurants atmosphere and feel. The restaurant has a wonderful collection of paintings and handicraft the show the creativity of Palawan locals. Highly recommended indeed!

Relaxing and cool. Nice place for simple bonding moments. Food taste great. New flavors for your taste buds! Crew is accomodating. Food budget is worth it! Won't make a mistake to come around the second time.

The entrance is hardly indicative of what's inside this restaurant which only take diners with a reservation/appointment. Diners can choose the 6:15 p.m. or 8:15 p.m. time slot to dine. No shoes are allowed inside and there are numbered bins for the shoes/sandals/slippers. Once inside, it's a different world-local artists have handicrafts for sale in one section of the house,...

I like how the place looks and the floor was made by bamboo. You have to remove your slippers or shoes when entering. Don't worry there is a place for you to store them. This restaurant is suitable for friends, couples or family. Spent 600pesos for two and the food was good plus it made us full!
