This is a great drinking hole. We arrived early on an evening of local music, skateboarding and graphing. We had an awesome night on the second floor where unlike other reviews found staff to be really attentive and prompt with service. The drinks flowed more so than the food, unfortunately. We shared some Lapu Lapu and grilled Tangigue which like... More

Place has some of Dumaguete's specialty like the Dumaguete Express which is a combination of Seafood, Pork, Buko and some veggies. Bad timing for our part though as the place was in renovation. The service can be a bit annoying if you are in the second floor as the waiters tend to be in the first floor.

This was not our idea of a good dinner at all. Place tends to get OVERcrowded at night, we had a hard time finding seats for a party of five. It would have been tolerable had the food tasted so good or at least, differently. Which it didn't, sadly. I really can't forget the lousy battered chicken, it was the... More

I went there as it's reputed for the sea food. Service was so slow that i could have died twice before getting a cold plate of burned fish. Seems the staff care only if they see you are ready to release a good tip.

This is one of the best places in Dumaguete for good food and location. Often great live bands too, tip don't sit too close to the speakers.. View decks are the most atmospheric seats if they are free space there. Bbq fish, and Dumaguete express dish is great. Enjoy

Hayahay is by far the best place in town for a great meal. It's a bit out of the center of town but for 7 peso you can get there, so thats no problem. They have the nicest seafood plates in a fabulous surrounding. You can sit in the treehouse with a view on the sea and harbour. If you... More

Hayahay is a great outdoor bar and restaurant. Ice Cold San Miguel Pilsen, Lite beer and a good selection of mixed drinks and if you sit outside at the bar you wont be disappointed, its a great view of the ocean and Cebu and Siquior Island. The staff is always friendly and very helpful with directions and locations for diving,... More

We took some friends from Manila there between Xmas and New Year. We told them this (and Lab-As, same place) was the best seafood in town. Many of the items we wanted to order were not available, which I suppose is possible at that time, though almost all the shops/market are only closed on Xmas day. It was very busy... More
