Good Food, Bad Service

We were looking for a cheap restaurant to eat at and found Mabuhay. The lady staff was not accommodating and even served us the wrong order. The food was great but I hope that if they're nice to foreigners, they should be nice with every customers even if its a local or a tourist from a different... read more

Happen to see this place on my way to Thresher Shark Dive. I stopped by for early dinner. I didnt notice how long it took them to serve my food because i was busy reading my diving manual. But when i paid, it took them like forever to give me my change. I wouldnt know where the lady went with... More

They made 3 strikes in a row. They had no rapor to the customer. They are not customer Oriented. Prices are too expensive for the food and service. It is better to deal with the locals rather than dinning at this place. HOPE THIS STORE CLOSES SOON!

We went there a couple of minutes ago and nobody entertained us. There were vacant seats but NOBODY offered us those. We waited for about 15minutes but nothing happened. The group decided to leave and transferred to Ging-ging's which has far more better service than this Mabuhay Foods! There's no way we will refer this place. It SUCKs!

We ate at several locations on Malapasqu but returned for several meals here due to its close proximity to our hotel, its prices, quality and service. It was during low season, so not many customers. We purchased from the menu as for the entire time we were there no buffet was offered. Our food was well prepared, delicious and cheerfully... More

We were three. I had the chicken adobo and cannot recall what the other had, but to be honest, for the price we paid, you can eat better on the island. Plus, service was really slow even though the restaurant was less than half full. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Food have been great if not for their slow service. We waited for almost an hour before lunch was served. Imagine how starved we are and I had to share my food with my bf since his food came in waaaay later. By the time his food arrived, it was no longer appetizing. We also asked for candles to drive...

With prices all hovering in the PhP95 range, Mabuhay Foods attracts a lot of people especially since you can enjoy your affordable meal on the beach itself! The grilled food is usually great and the sweet and sour pork is not to be missed. A cold bottle of Red Horse should do the trick to make this an above average... More

My family arrived in Malapascua yesterday. We decided to have breakfast this morning at the Mabuhay Foods and sat at a table overlooking the sea.The table cloth was dirty so asked for a new clean one. Ten minutes elapsed and a clean one was delivered. This was covered with holes so they obviously had trouble finding another table cloth. Remember... More
