The Craic House is a kind of isolated restaurant on the island, you need to walk all the way till the end of the bounty beach to find this. Not Crowded at all, went during the lunch time. Limited menu, nice staff, clean environment, nice music. Good quality of food but no local food.

A friend and I stayed on Malapascua for six nights and ate the bulk of our meals at The Craic House. The service was outstanding, friendly wait staff who were always ready with a smile and a quick response to any request. The menu had a broad selection including local and western dishes. I worked my way thru quite a... More

We ate most of our meals at Craic House while on Malapascua. Prices were reasonable, food was tasty, and service was fantastic. Most of the staff learned our names by our second time dining there. Try the shakes - the mango shake was incredibly yummy and so refreshing on a hot afternoon.

Really liked the food and the happy hour 2 for 1 drinks! They were fine with any substitution requests (potatoes or other veggies instead of bread or rice), service with a smile and tasty selections.

We walked from one end of bounty beach to the other because of the 'excellent reviews' on trip advisor. Endured the humid air and mosquitoes to get overcooked, pricey and sub-standard dishes. Major disappointment. Wasn't cheap too!

That was possibly the worst food in a long time! It was enough to convince me to never return. Took two bites, paid my bill and left. Done!

The western (or filipino) food are nice. Though the choices tend to be abit limited. Their breakfast portion is not big, but sufficient for one. Check out their shakes!

You are king from the moment you step into The Craic House. I have never ever eaten so much on a diving trip, at a dive shop. TCH is basically a part of Evolution, by far the best dive shop on Malapascua. But what makes TCH unoque is Anton and his crew. For your entire stay they will do anything... More

I was visiting the Craig House on a daily basis during my 8 weeks stay in Malapascua. You will find a relaxed, lounge-like athmosphere, good service and high quality, fresh made food. If you have any special requests (for example you should try once a seafood BBQ), Anton, the restaurant manager is happy to organize it. The service is quick,... More
