Come sundown, since we had to have a taste of the local food, we went to Kinabuch's Grill and Bar and ordered their best seller, Croc Sisig, and a serving of Tamilok. As was mentioned to me by my travel buddy, there are only 2 places here in the Philippines where you are really allowed to eat crocodile sisig, and... More

One of the more popular local restaurants in PP, we dined here on our first night. Service was quite fast, food was reasonably priced and of course, we had to try their crocodile sisig, which didn't disappoint.

A quiet and cozy place on the side of the street. Their potk barbeque is so good. You can also play billiards while waiting for your order. Great for reunions and gatherings. They just need to add illumination.

In our 14 day stay in Puerto Princesa, this is one of the rare restaurants we returned to for a second meal. Personally my tummy was a bit upset on this part of the trip so even though I found the food very good, I ate a bit sparingly. Too bad because the portions were very genereous. But my fiancée...

Food and drinks are good at a reasonable price. Good service. Can get rather crowded and noisy though. Accessible. Good location

I went here around 9:00 in the evening. The place was still full packed on those getting late dinner because of a very long day of swimming and sigh seeing. I was so hungry back then. We ordered a lot of dishes like Sinigang na Hipon, Sisig, tamilok, fish fillet and we loved it all. The food they serve there... More

the place is made up of Nepa huts and have a look of native. The customer service is excellent. They have clean toilets. Varieties of seafood selection. You can choose what you want to eat and have it cooked for you aside from just looking at the menu listings.

It's a complete bar and restaurant. You can have drinks after a good dinner, no need to transfer. They have extensive menu including tamilok, croc sisig and whatever PP has to offer. Their prices are also very reasonable. Service is very good, you can even see the owner Butch Chase (a motocross legend) checking out the customers and having small... More

During an extended stay in Puerto Princesa, I went to Kinabuch three times and had very good food with excellent service at every visit - and very reasonably priced. Choose any of the sizzling dishes and you are good! The restaurant layout with an east (bar) and west wing, a "main area", a few odd tables between them, and a... More
