After touring Mantigue Island it is now time to have lunch. And the perfect way to do it is by eating the fish names that you just learned. You get to eat them! We ordered all different kinds of fishes and also buko juice which only costs P20 each. It has a nice view in the back where you can... More

Food taste was ordinary, although its location is more than the usual. Service was kinda slow considering that only few customers were in the place. Waiter could have been more welcoming. Edible food, but given other choices, I'd just pass on this one.

We stopped by the Fishpen while we were taking our motor bike for a ride around the island. Upon entering it looked very promising sitting on a small pond where you could see the live fish kept in the "fishpen". There were also quite a few people who looked to be enjoying tasty food. We looked at the menu and... More

We went to this restaurant twice, and the food was impeccable both times. This restaurant is a good spot to spend some time before your ferry from Benoni. Garlic rice and calamari are the highlights. Also they do famous su-tu-kil (fish cooked in three different ways). The fish is always fresh, and sometimes caught just straight for you. While you... More

This was our first time in Camiguin. We have traveled many places and loved the island. We used Tripadvisor as our guide and went to this place. It was very nice setting and the food was okay but very expensive. The service was really good though and my girlfriend enjoyed it. The fish is fresh and tasty but overcooked and... More

IF you go for seafood, in whatever style of cooking, this is the place to go. Additional attraction are the giant fish on the pens. Very attentive and friendly staff. The small floating cottages are relaxing and breezy. Food is not cheap but in comparison to Manila seafood, value for money.

Since we spent most of our money during our previous activities, we could not afford the to buy their crab or shrimps. But we had a big and super fresh (Straight from the pond) lapu-lapu fish that was... More

I was really looking forward to this place but the food was disappointing. My chili crab was too sweet and only so so. They charge you extra to sit out by the water too. The atmosphere is nice and I did have a great mango shake but I would have liked to have had better food.
