Wandering, parched, through El Nido Town offers countless opportunities to have a beer - but finding an artisanal (and extraordinarily good) legit microbrewery seems like a fever dream. But there it is: Boodmo Brewery in Odessa Mama Kitchen - and oh lord is it good!...More

Boodmo is a craft brewery at Odessa Mama restaurant with a simple menu and a choice of 5-6 craft beers. The pale ale was particularly good!

Traveling is all about trying different food, right? Than you have to stop by Odessa Mama. In a tropical country it's hard to find any real fresh cheese - this is the place where you get homemade cottage cheese in a delicious dumpling or self-made...More

Worth to try! Ate the nalesniki (super good taste, with honey and cottage cheese), vareniki (had no with chicken liver, so chose with cottage cheese and herbs - also good), cheburek was average taste. They were sold out with borch soup. Btw. The place is...More

It was good to visit this place just to see what they are offering. Microbrewery beer is good but does not match with food menu they offer. Very limited menu with awkward selection to match their beers. Ukrainian food does not represent Odessa’s food .,...More

There's no real atmosphere here for whatever reason, maybe because people aren't fully sold on the microbrewery idea. I dunno. Anyway the beer is OK, IPA would be my pick of the bunch and a fair price for what it is.. At 200PHP a 'pint'...More

Get the pale ale or the IPA. The dry stout was sort of bland. Terrible food, though, which sucks because I want to support microbreweries. I love Ukrainian food and now I'm not sure if I do anymore.

Came to the restaurant on the reviews on trip advisor. I’ve been to Europe and eaten the foods this restaurant was attempting to make and this restaurant embarrasses itself. Bland and odd tasting dishes which left me feeling very unsatisfied. If it wasn’t for their...More
