Stopped by for happy hour twice and enjoyed the 2 for 1 drink specials. Chatted with owner Maria and met a few nice folks. Place was fairly empty as it was the low season, but I would consider staying there next time. I liked the ship-like rustic ambiance.

We had our lunch at Magellans and I immensely enjoyed it (my best meal in Malapascua). The restaurant is on the upper floor, has all wooden interiors, lots of seating (bamboo chairs + large sofas / mattresses with cushions if you like to fold our legs and sit). When I wanted buko (coconut) juice, they just sent a person up... More

As you are on holiday, you've got your time. If you go to magellan it is important to do not forget this parameter. THe food is really great, but it takes a while to be served. Waiter informed us that everything is fresh, and so it take time to prepare, but 1 hours 15 for pasta seems a bit long.... More

We stopped by this restaurant almost every day. They had a German hefeweizen in the can and it sure is hard to find good, full-flavored beer in Malapascua!

The service was really really slow. After 20 minutes from our order was taken, they informed us that our food is not available. So we picked another one but it took them about 40 minutes to serve it. When the food finally arrived, the portion was small and even have to remind them about the salad which should be served... More

Food was average and portions small, and service very slow (25 min after i ordered to let me know they didn't have fish for example). Much better food and value at other restaurants nearby.

Food is average.. Service is slow.. View is amazing.. If you are bored with the rest of Malapascua.. then this is your choice.. I would head down to Craic House for a better experience..

If you're craving for Filipino food and you're in Malapascua, I suggest you go here. Food is good, the restaurant is tastefully decorated, the service is great. We even had a good chat with the owner's parents who are also vacationing there. Really nice couple. They made sure that our food is done to our liking, and they gave us... More

Food was terrible - ordered off their BBQ as recommended by the waitress. Took absolutely forever to arrive and when it did was a small portion and the BBQ pork was like eating an old boot.
