I love this little place, the food is great! We ate there every night for a week because we just loved it so much. The soups are all homemade and the flavours are awesome, they have great pizzas, very tasty salads, etc. Everything we tried was very good. The servers are very kind and quick to help you. Some others... More

We were invited by a couple whom we met on the island. They ate at Isla Bonita before that week. Realy good food. You have to wait a while, but hey... you're on Malapascua island... No rush here! The restaurant is off the beach, which is nice to experience. I had the Marlin fish. Perfectly made!!! The chicken adobo and... More

We went to La Isla Bonita for lunch and despite being the only diners, waited nearly 45 mins for our pizza and salad. Even drinks took 20 mins! Slightly odd as waiter is very attentive and professional, so it must be the kitchen that's slow. That said, food was worth wait. It is good quality, not greasy and one of... More

The food is good but taking too long to serve. Worth a try if you are bored eating at the same place over and over again.

The food is good, but you must be patient, go early and wait. Or you can order in advance for the dinner.

I had the chicken curry with coconut milk and rice for 220 pesos which was good, but for 80 pesos I had the night before the same quality for the same kind of... More

Along the same pathway as Ging-Ging's is La Isla Bonita Restaurant. It is gem of a place for wide variety of European and local Filipino dishes. The dinning setting is done very nicely, amidst a quaint little garden, which you must traverse through on a small foot path from its main gate. The food is fresh and well prepared food... More

Ordered a grilled squid, fish, and garlic rice to go along. The squid was nice, the fish a little tough, and service and ambiance lovely. Spent a good evening at La Isla Bonita
