The restaurant itself is open air, with isolated floating gazebos, surrounded by water filled with koi! Anyone that likes taking pictures of their dining experience will not be disappointed, as there are literally hundreds of different picture opportunities at this establishment. We had the fried tilapia, marinated spare ribs, pork adobo, pinakbet, marinated chicken, and fresh lumpia. All dishes were good, but I think the star was the marinated spare ribs. Luckily, the weather was mild. I can’t imagine enjoying myself if the temps were any higher. But we had a good experience here and would come again!

You can see the Part 1 of my review for Isdaan: The halfway to the North Floating Restaurant (Gerona Tarlac) - 1, just click on the link. So after reviewing Isdaan: The halfway to the North Floating Restaurant (Gerona Tarlac) - 1 menu, I will now proceed with their facilities. I like their idea of having separate cottages for each group of customers, so you'll have an exclusive (if that's the right term) time with your friends and families. So the idea is an A+ for me, because regardless of how big or how small your group is they'll surely have a place for you. As most people know, this is where the famous Tacsiyapo wall is located. Just a few walks from where our cottage is located. I didn't have a closer shot because there are too many people here when we finish our dinner, and since we are so eager to go back home, we didn't find the time to at least have a closer look. What is Tacsiyapo wall ("Release your anger. Ilabas ang sama ng loob)? For those who are not familiar with this famous wall, this is a spot where you can release your anger by throwing or smashing something on the wall. From 15 pesos, to smash a plate, bowl or a mug up to 1,300 pesos to smash a working television, yes a television if you're up to changing your 1,300 pesos just to smash a T.V. So if you want to release your anger for just a moment, you can try this. After releasing your anger, and to soothe things up, you will be entertained by singing staff's not sure if they are waiters as some say they have singing waiters here, the quality of singing is good, and you can request for any songs in your mind. Since the food takes a long time to be served these singing waiters will entertain you for sure, for a moment we forgot that we are waiting for our food and that we are so hungry already. My husband has requested I'll Be by Edwin McCain and they sang it very well, 2 thumbs up for them! We just forgot to get their names. Good thing they are the ones who drop by in our cottage instead of the one impersonating Ka Freddie Aguilar who looks like him and dress like him, I just can't imagine how he'll sing I'll Be to the tune of Anak, hahaha bad me! And so my husband is feeling a bit generous that time and he really likes their singing so he gave him 200 pesos for 2 songs...if I know I may have offered my singing instead :). Just a thought, we noticed that in some tables with a few more heads than us, almost all singers are dropping by at their cottage to sing, and that's already a bit annoying to have 2 or more group of singers bugging you while eating and you have no choice and it's a bit uncomfortable if you can't give them even 20 pesos for their singing. Just like the table next to us who have experienced that, one customer just uttered: "mamumulubi tayo nito, sa pagkain palang mahal na, dami pang sideline". Well, I also think so. So as the name of this establishment implies, Isdaan, Floating Resto, literally, the cottages are floating or shall I say over the pond under. The place is surrounded by ponds and man-made lagoons with Japanese Koi fishes. The management will give you an option not just to watch the fishes swim all over, but also to feed them. But take note, one move, one more payment. That's how it works there. We don't spend money to pay the food of those fishes, the cottage next to us saw my son watching the fishes while they feed them, and so they hand him a pack of fish, and that's when all the fishes in this picture have circled around our cottage. After eating we decided to roam around to explore the place. So here's what we have captured. Unggoy, Unggoyan, for 1 kilo of free fish, survive the spitting, urinating monkeys. Gotta try this one. Good luck! Definitely, Isdaan is like a miniature of Thailand located in the Philippines, it's also like Thai+Phil in one. We really like the view and the whole package of the place, if we only have to consider the structure and design. This place is two thumbs up! You'll enjoy taking pictures with your friends and families. Actually, we weren't able to explore the whole place as we really wanted to get home the soonest that we can. As you can see it is already dark when we left the place. I'd also like to commend how clean their restrooms are. Even if their restrooms are quite small, it is always clean, whatever CR you visit they have staff outside who is so willing to serve you. And of course we wouldn't want to forget to commend and thank their staffs, they are really accommodating, respectful and super kind. From their receptionist to the staffs who takes our order, to their singing waiters, up to their staff in their comfort rooms, also a 2 thumbs up for all of you. So to sum it up, we still have a great time visiting this place. And as I promise to my son, we still visit it again next time when we have more time to enjoy it and explore its beauty. Well regardless of how expensive their food is, we still want to try it the 2nd time around.

Seafood restaurant with no seafood available. Call first before you drive 3 hours to make sure they have food available on the menu. Otherwise they’ll hand you a piece of paper with 5 choices.

We came here so excited because it’s our first time. The view and environment was definitely good in taking a picture. But then right when we get in and ready to dine in, no one come to us because they was all busy in one thing although they have plenty of workers there should be at least one who must stay in the reception to welcome the guest. Because of that they don’t know who comes first so they entertained the last arrival than us which make me more upset. Also Food took forrrrreverrrr.. More than one hour, and the place was empty.. Also food quality and taste was just okay.. Therefore I can say this place must be good in a person who had lot of patience. And the workers must have cooperation too because all I can see is competition.

First of all, this is a cash only restaurant which you will only come to know after you get seated and menu card is handed over. On the menu card its mentioned that they only accept cash, which i think is a no no since mostly of customers are tourists. We ordered the group meal good for 15pax for more or less Pesos 12,300. It took more than 30 minutes for the order to be serve. Although servings are big, but presentations and taste of the food, nothing special.
