Wecame to Donsol for some whaleshark site seeing and it did not disappoint and after a long day out in the water, my friends and I needed a good meal. Juliette is the owner of the place and was an absolute treat to have around. She was talkative but also allowed our group to have our own conversations. I've always... More

Stopped here after a day on the water. We where the first to arrive, so had a lovely chat with the owner, Juliette. She is very welcoming and chatty and served some lovely food. We enjoyed it there so much we did not feel the need to try other places in the area! If you are looking for whale sharks,... More

This place hands down was my favorite restaurant and experience in the Philippines. Juliette was awesome as she sat down and chatted with us. The food was delicious as well as the margaritas. Service was great too. Unfortunately she had to leave town to take her son on a holiday excursion or else we would have eaten there a few... More

Great food, great service. Great view of the ocean. I heard the margaritas are great... But no chance to try it coz im driving. The calamari salad is a must try.

We ate here as it was right next to woodland where we were staying (if you are at woodland walk out onto the beach and turn left over the wall and you are there). The host running the place is great value and is entertaining. She had some great fresh fish on offer and you can select what you want.... More

Juliette and her team are fantastic! The menu is mostly the catch of the day and the two times we ate there it was delicious. The fish was beautifully cooked by Juliet and her chef, and the sides were really tasty. As well and that the drinks, and chats with Juliet makes it a great place to enjoy for an... More

Overpriced most definitely ... Different flavor on cooking for sure,but overpriced . The owner will try to use her charm to justify the high prices.

We had a great night in Baracuda restaurant,thanks to the friendly staff and the great atmoaphere in the place. But,the meals are totally overpriced and so the beverages - but also so small. If you want an exclusive night you can find it there, but if you just want a nice dinner go look for another place, the prices not... More

My boyfriend and I had decided to go to this restaurant because it was top rated on Trip Advisor. We arrived and wanted to take a table at the end of the restaurant but instead we were seated at a table with 6 other people who had already started their meal. I was told the owners name before we arrived... More

Our meal here is only described as perfection. Prawns were huge and properly cooked and lightly seasoned. Calamari salad was the highlight for us. Barracuda was freshly caught and prepared well. Owner, Juliette was so friendly and wonderful to speak to. Unfortunately, we didn't go until our last night in Donsol. Do not make our same mistake, just go as... More
