Tremendous varieties of fresh Seafood simply cooked, make Ocho the best restaurant in Tacloban. Though the prices are never listed, you will be surprised how inexpensive Seafood can be (when you leave you, receive a very clearly detail list of your purchase). To order, you stand in an uncooked seafood buffet line, point to the seafood and chose how you... More

Food here is really really good. I love seafood so this is great for fellow seafood lovers. We had calamari, scallops, shrimps and other seafood and you can ask them to cook the food however you want it. You can also ask them how they'd recommend the food to be cooked and what sauces to use. The place is big... More

Excellent food at a reasonable price. The grilled fish and the scallops with garlic are fresh and good tasting. The place can be a bit cleaner though.

For appetizer, we had seaweed salad and "halabos na hipon" or stirfried shirmp.The seaweed is so fresh you can still taste the ocean. It is served with tomatoes and onions with white vinegar dressing. The shrimp is so crunchy and juicy you can't help yourself to ask for more. For the soup, we had "halaan" or clam soup. It is...

The food is quite fresh and well cooked. The concept to choose your food on the counter is brilliant. The staff is helpful and smily. Prices are fair, taking into consideration the quality of the food. My only reproach would be that the place is a bit busy and noisy, especially if you're seated on the way to the entrance... More

I know a lot people LOVE this place and I don't blame them. Perhaps I gave this an Average rating because I live in Tacloban City and it's not something very special for me. My boyfriend loves this though. Let's start with the more thorough review. FOOD: I love the idea of having a variety of seafood to choose from... More
