Need to book months ago and made advance deposit to secure a spot for group of 16. Can communicate & book through FB Messenger, which is quiet convenient. Food (4/5): limited choice & serve seafood only. Choices skewed towards deep fried. Environment (4/5): nice and...More

They have friendly and very well coordinated staff. A very short wait once the food was ordered. We tried the family set and the seafood was really good. The Sinigang ni Kaka is a must try -- a twist from your ordinary native soup.

Well, consider the good restaurant in this town but to see the way they cook just ok because we have not too much choice in this area ! Come to the center, you may find other better restaurant !

For our first dinner in the Philippines we came at Kalui. The decoration is really outstanding, a huge gap with Puerto Princessa environment.. Here you enter barefoot, welcome at home :) We took grilled tuna, that was good. Shrimps with garlic and butter were really...More

Great food and awesome place, the only problem I encountered is that they are quite hard to reach thru cellphones since I reserved from Manila, but the staff are all accomodating.

The place came highly recommended. You need to make reservations (and downpayment) before going there. Nice ambience. There are seats which feel like you're eating in your sofa at home. We were a big group so we were able to try a lot of dishes....More

I recommend that you call them to reserve for your group before going there. Walk ins are OK but you'd have to wait in line for a table and it might take a while before one becomes available.
