Consistent Yummy Food

We always keep coming back here every time we come to Camiguin. Food is always fresh, you catch what you are going to eat. Our kids love the breeze here and most especially the food. Service is good too.

If you are looking for a fresh and good taste seafood in Camiguin, this is the place. You can go here right when you arrive the island or drop when you are about to leave, otherwise you need to make an extra trip because it's far from Mambajao. The food is good and the cottages are good ambiance.

a nice place to stop when traveling around, it can get very busy with tourists during lunch time. We went twice the first time the food was amazing, the second time one of the fish was over-cooked, but the rest was yummy, the squid and the crab omelet are highly recommended!

We were in a hurry and only had about an hour to eat lunch before we take the ferry back to Cagayan de Oro. We asked them to serve us food that they can cook quickly. We were not disappointed with the food they served us. Too bad, we didn't have time to taste other dishes in their menu.

We ordered a ton of food in here and not one dish impressed me. The seafoods were not fresh which is a surprise as they have a 'fish-pen' in the area. I though that food were not properly cooked. It was just okay. The view was amazing but the place needs to improve on the food.

During an island tour around Camiguin stopped here for some lunch. They have some great fish / seafood selection and recommended the Lapu Lapu fish, it was fantastic! Get a private shed on the water, nice breeze and ambience to eat!
