Laid back chill place

When we go to PPS from elnido, most of the tour guides recommend this place. So why not try it with your family. I love the crispy pata and they also serve crocodile sisig best with ice cold beer. Fresh mango shakes were the faves of my sibs. We love the ambiance very laid back good for travellers... read more

the food taste was not as expected. Maybe a bit over rated. We thought of it as really a must eat restaurant. At least we were able to taste the crocodile sisig and the tamilok ( a local delicacy in Palawan).

Been eating here for as long as I can remember and we've always had a pleasant experience. We took our son for the first time here and he loved the sizzling bulalo. Perfect place to hang out with friends and family.

Good food and good place, there really isn't anything more that I could say, it's well well run and owned by an American, and attracts a lot of crowdds, they also have big screens and billiards.. good for a group of friends to have dinner and hang out...

Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods had a meal here, so we decided to write this down on our itinerary. Highlight of the night - my boyfriend being the brave foodie that he is, tried out the local delicacy, Tamilok (wood worm). The verdict? It tastes like oysters. The food was just ok. But I have to commend the staff for... More

Ate here on our last night at Puerto Princesa. I had the hotel staff call for reservation beforehand so I think we had good seats? I don't think it was necessary though since the place is huge. We had dinner & there are lots of guests so waiting time for food is a bit long. Great food with reasonable price... More

The food here was nice but it is noisy place with an aim off getting you in, eat your meal as fast as you can, get you out as soon as they can. No sooner do you stand up to leave your table someone is sitting in your place. The staff are very fast considering how many people were there.... More

We had dinner at Kinabuch Bar & Grill. It has a festive atmosphere with a big movie screen visible to the diners. The BBQ's were excellent, the price affordable, and I recommend it to those planning to visit Palawan.

The food here is very delicious and good to your budget. Serving is big so its very good. The crepe and halo halo is a must here! Love the ice cream. Service also good and they also accept credit cards. Place is big so don't worry if you are in a big group they can accommodate you.
