Better than expected

I recently had dinner here in March 2014. I normally don't eat at tourist spots but thought I'd give this place a try. Kinabuch is a very big restaurant with lots of outdoor seating. The menu has a large selection of choices with filipino and foods suited for foreigners. The portions are big and... read more

Really good place to eat outside. Food was excellent, staff were on the ball. Good location. Must be one of the best places in Puerto.

We waffled back and forth on going here because it seemed like such a tourist spot and that isn't what we are really into. It seemed like they offered "unique local" dishes but in a manner for tourists. I would recommend giving it a try once to see if you like it. The place is huge and can be extremely... More

Great food selection - there's typical Filipino food but you can also get Japanese (one of our companions had sashimi) and it's right near the city proper. The restaurant is open-air and has a nice vibe to it. The crowd may swell a little bit especially on weekends so if you're going there for a meeting or for a nice... More

Went there on a recommendation from our taxi-cle driver. I guess that where they all bring first-time foreigners...? Anyways, it's HUGE: there's a sit-in dining room, a patio, an outdoor bar and more seating further back into the property. Massive amount of staff, all running around like busy ants, so it wasn't hard to flag one down for quick service.... More

Worth going to if you are in Puerto. We ate here for two nights. There is a massive selection of food, including fresh seafood. Not many vegetarian options. Good selection of drinks and the place seems to be full every night so a good place to go to meet people.

The service was pretty good for a very large table such as ours.16 people. Most places cannot deliver meals to the table all at once. we have had many experiences in other resto's where the food was brought out in drips and drabs. Kino was on the ball and the food was amazing. Loved the Lumpias (springrolls) out of this... More
