Trudi's Place has decent accommodations. I usually go there for the waterfront food and drinks. Good service, decent happy hour prices and excellent ambiance.

The only thing that I didn't like here is the 'stuffed grilled squid' that they have in their menu. It's quite misleading. They should just name it 'grilled squid' because there was barely any stuffing in it. It has perhaps a quarter of a tomato and a few bits of onion. Apart from that, it was a nice place to... More

I was GRANDPAcking in Alona Beach for 6 nights. I tried a few different places. Trudis is one of the many resorts with beachfront tables. It is at the south end of the beach so quieter than the others. They have a live band a couple of nights a week. Their Happy Hour beer is only PHP40 ... So Trudis... More

Decent food, terribly slow service...PAINFULLY slow. No one seems to move or take any action unless absolutely necessary here. We came here a few times for breakfast though...simply because everyone serves the same thing and this place had the best price.

Trudi's has good food for reasonable prices. Local and international dishes, good service and daily live music. Try the banana smoothie mocktail!

The food was good, we ordered beef steak tagalog and spicy gambas spaghetti ( i can't remember exactly how it is called) but we probably waited 40 minutes or so for the food to be served, the staff are accommodating and attentive. The ambiance is relaxing as it is right in front of the beach. But needs improvement on the... More

Went here for dinner with a small group and were shown to a table underneath a gazebo - plastic table and plastic chairs. After that it was kind of difficult to get the waitron's attention. The food was well...different and underwhelming. The portions were pretty small and expensive in comparison. The worst bit, however, was the band mutilating songs of... More
