Good happy hour

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.

Took about 30 minutes at least to get our beverages, a beer and a smoothie. Everyone else was waiting too. Very understaffed, so prepare to wait a long time to be served. Our food eventually came, maybe after an hour or so. Adobo was good, but I'm no expert. Nice interior and location.

Very good pizza with light and fluffy crust and base (I've worked in a gourmet pizza shop so I have an idea). Great spot with view right on the beach. Snazzy bar too.

The greatest asset to this restaurant are the friendly girls, the ambiance in the native style of the restaurant and the great view. Especially to Buntis (pregnant) who looked after us and gave great service and smiled alot. Meals do take a while so if you are not in a hurry a great chilled out place to eat and drink.... More

One of our party of four had fish n chips which was very nice, but the three of us had the special which was grilled on a cold grill and was raw.... More

Small, dark intimate bar right on the beach. Lots of high stools, two bar staff to keep the beers going and a lot of drop in customers. Loved how casual it is, felt like a bar back home but with tropical air, banana trees and sand. Really liked this place, Malapasua's only proper pub.

Not happy about dining there. Dining on the beach is so enjoyable, but as the meal progressed, the disappointment grew only larger. First the red wine by the glass: avoid; it is some sweet lightly alcoholic drink of red color... Staff actually has no idea what wine should taste like. Note the P Masson chablis was ok. We ordered garlic... More

Happy to have found this little gem next to hippocampus. The food was great and the staff was even better. Be sure to enjoy a happy hour of 2 for 1 cocktails between 5-7 pm and ask Bjorn (the bartender) to sing you some classics. Maria the owner is super friendly and can always be found interacting with the customers.... More
