We enjoyed an awesome dinner here after finding out about this place on our hotel's travel guide. It's a big place near the airport with 3 areas, an outdoor dining area, an indoor area with pool tables & bar, and another indoor area with a mini bar as well. We tried their pork sisig, veggie curry, fried chicken, and pancit... More

One of the most famous restaurants in Puerto Princesa. It offers variety of food. We tried the fried tamilok. The feeling was weird maybe because of the thought that im eating a worm but tastes like a fried isaw.

The ambiance during the night is very relaxing. Customers were just hanging out and talking quietly while enjoying their beer and the crocodile sisig. Try also the gising gising, the best of its kind that i've tasted....so far. :)

For a highly recommended restaurant when visiting Puerto, I think I may have had too high expectations before dining here. I would say the items we ordered were all sadly average. (Then again maybe we couldve done better by ordering other things) We ordered: Pork sisig - it was probably the sweetest pork sisig I've ever had. Grilled blue marlin... More

This is one of the famous restaurants in Puerto Princesa and highly recommended by the locals. The whole place looks better and bigger than the other restaurants in the area. The burger I ordered was good and big enough for two persons. Their crocodile sisig was the best! At first I was hesitant to try it and after a few... More

I am usually not picky about restaurants but this place was terrible. No seats and slow service. My margarita was nothing more than ice, no flavor, no alcohol and it was 195 php. They were out of everything we wanted to order. The sizzling chicken was inedible, the fried fish was tasteless, and the sizzling shrimp was of the quality... More

Good: - open restaurant for large groups; - huge portions; - allow us to bring some items they was out of stock from neighbor restaurant; - fair prices; - great seafood cream soup; Negative: - did not have crocodile dishes and some fish, but allow us to bring it! Nice place to visit!

A tourist guide recommended this restaurant so at first I was wary, thinking it might be a tourist trap, but Kinabuchs (yes, there's an "s" at the end) turned out to be the best restaurant we ate at in Puerto Princesa. They didn't take reservations so we walked in and had a bit of a wait (about 10 minutes) before... More

We loved the food at Kinabuch. the food is served fast, variety is wide, but at the same time many things on the menu are not available. starters are nice, the pork filled fried spring rolls, onion rings were great as well. The best dish for us was the baby back ribs which were good! the Sirloin on the hot... More
