The buffet was just alright, you have to be there earlier before the boat will go sail if you want to savor the buffet offered in the cruise. 300plus for regular buffet and 500 for the special buffet. The difference was its expensive because they serve crabs/seafoods.

It was my first time to eat in a floating restaurant that's why I was very excited for the trip. It is very affordable and the food was great. You'll get to enjoy good food at the same time appreciate the beauty of nature.

What better way to have lunch that a floating restaurant while being serenaded by local singers. The food is not spectacular at all. It is more of the experience and the chance to support the people who live there, depending mostly on tourism. Proceeds also go to the Loboc children's choir ,

Nasty lunch with dry meat and hard rice. But it's nice to enjoy the cruise along the peaceful river with tropical view. Singers and band on boat play good music and sing songs in different language. It is a surprise.

You can both enjoy the buffet style and beautiful view of the river while dining.. the food was also superb and the taste was really filipino style. Even foreigners enjoyed it 😄 this is one of the place i truly enjoyed during our... More

This floating resto need to clean up; the table containing the food was swarming with flies. They should take care of the diners, we can get sick eating the food they serve. Its really a BIG turn off, but the entertainment was good.

When in Bohol you absolutely must do this! We went ten years ago and it was just as enjoyable as the last time. What's not to love about cruising down the river with beautiful views, good food and live music. Roughly mid-way through the cruise they tie you off to a stage where the local kids sing/dance. You can even... More
