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!

Mostly fishes from their pens are served but we ordered their Calamares and Chicken and Pork Dishes! Funny thing is that we both ordered Grilled and Barbecued Chicken! The only difference is that the 'barbecued' one has ketchup in it, nothing more than the grilled one! But I have to say, their Buko Shake (Coconut Smoothie) is just remarkable!

Waiting for the ferry to leave, we had lunch here and ordered the local fish. One was broiled, and the other was served with sweet and sour sauce. A salad completed our lunch. One of the best meals we had traveling.

This is where we always have either the first or the last meal of the trip because it is so close to the port.
