Ate there our last night in Peurto Princesa - glad we found this spot. The food was very good and the service was great. Get there early as it gets very busy in the evening.

Kinabuch's Bar and Grill is excellent for drinks and appetizers. The place is big, with both indoor and outdoor seating. Our group of 10 hung out in one of their indoor terraces for drinks and appetizers. You gotta try the chicharon bulaklak and crocodile sisig. If you're feeling brave try the infamous Tamilok. Their staff are very cordial and attentive.... More

My son and I have been here 3 days in a row and are soon to go a fourth time. Our waiter the first night was Jason, and he took care of us very well, when we showed up he quickly got us a table, this is a very large open air restaurant and has been a very busy place.... More

We got to taste Croc Sisig in other places but the one served in Kinabuch actually tasted the best. The stringy texture of the Croc and it's flavor really makes me think it as the best sisig I've tasted, even better than chicken nor pork.
