Food gets tastier with good ambiance, so i like this place for the cool sea breeze and good seafood. I ordered smoked eggplant, butter garlic lobsters, which are my favorites, the rest were average. I would always bring my guests here.

The place is large and with a view of the sea. One has to pass through a wooden bridge between numerous mangrove trees to get to the restaurant. Food is very good and tasty. They also serve fresh seafoods and other Filipino fair. Prices are reasonable. Downside: mosquitoes! Bring insect repellants! While they have electric fans to keep off the... More

The food is good, reasonable price in my own opinion. The setting and the view complements the meal. The drawback is service. More server should be on the floor especially that during dinner, a lot of guests are coming it. The servers are taking orders and at the same time cleaning and setting the tables. Reservation is a must. Our... More

The food here is good!! Very delicious seafood and great dinner packages. Be careful of mosquitos at night time as the restaurant is located on top of mangroves by the sea. The service here is below standard however, which was a shame. I really wished that the service they gave was better as the food was perfect!! Try the Crispy... More

My girlfriend and I had dinner here in March 2014. The atmosphere is simple and not as romantic as some have described. The menu selection is ok offering a variety of filipino dishes. I ordered 5 or 6 dishes for the two of us and the price was $27, which included a few seafood dishes. That's pretty decent for the... More

Badjao was a little out of the way for us - we stayed at the other end of town at Go Hotels and as our week in town went by, we got lazy about the tricycle rides through traffic to get places. We did decide to go here our last night and I am really glad we did. We had... More

I don’t usually write reviews after coming back from a vacation as I am usually too lazy to do it. But I thought I better make an effort to write about our experience when we visited Badjao because it was one of those places which made our vacation at Palawan worth the journey from the UK to manila then to...

We went around 3 o'clock by then they had run out of a lot of things. So we ordered the calamari and the garlic crab. The calamari was amazing as was the crab. The view is absolutely stunning, making it an amazing experience. The service was great too, which is unusual for the Philippines.
