We ate here for my birthday celebration. The price is so worth it. Everything we ordered is delicious. We had, chili crabs, buttered shrimp, snigang na tuna belly, a lot of rice and beers, The ambiance is also great. The funny thing is, when we got home, my cousin told me that she dreamed about the Crabs. Yes, it is... More

The scallops and the Shrimp Gambas are defent must haves. The wait staff were efficient without hovering over the table. The large selection of seafood was very good. The al fresco eating area was okay for a balmy night in Bacolod but there is an air-conditioned room for those wishing to escape the humidity.

Food is just the ordinary, and a bit expensive. The only thing to like here is the cleanliness and ambiance of the place.

It is easy to get to 18th Pala-pala. From Lacson st., if you see starbucks, alight from the jeep, and walk a block to reach the restaurant. Dishes that I thought were really good: Grilled squid - stuffed with lemongrass, and its flavor seeped into the squid, which made the taste interesting, and less "malansa" Grilled tilapia - fish was...

stopped by here after visiting Mambukal Resort. Large selection, but no outstanding dishes. Recommended for seafood, and was fine, but just fine. Not a bad choice if you are in the area already, but a little disappointing after all the recommendations.

Very easy to get there by taxi. Open air. Clean. Very fresh seafood. Service is not that good. But a mid afternoon plate of oysters and cold Beer is time not wasted.

It has been a while since I came back to the city of my birth. My second son and his wife brought me to this restaurant to try out their dishes, knowing that I love fish, and especially the part that most do like, except for us Asians. I had a good time with their finger licking dishes. Very juicy... More

We went to Pala Pala looking for a special fresh fish dinner before the Masskara events started. What we got was NOISE! All started well enough, though the fish selection was a bit less inspiring than in the past. Before our dinners came, the NOISE started. Some my call this music. Not us! The NOISE was made by a multi... More

We arrived at Palapala Restaurant in the city of smiles Bacolod. We were welcomed by the staff with their warm smiles and they are very assisting considering that none of us could speak in Ilonggo. The service is fast and the place is cozy. The food is very tasty and fresh
