If you're looking for a decent feed with a large group, or something on the cheap, I would recommend this place. Their serving sizes are generous for the pesos spent, but the 8 dishes (plus 2 rice plates) ordered were extremely salty. We also ordered a pitcher of ice tea, which actually came after all the dishes were served. We... More

Ate dinner on a Friday evening. Restaurant was at near capacity. Excellent service and even better food. The menu has everything and more. Prices are very reasonable. Well maintained premises - clean and orderly. If you're visiting Puerto Princessa you have to stop in here. Caters to locals and tourists alike. You will not be disappointed and they will treat...

They have draft beer! We were so excited. Don't get it. Tastes like not many people do and like they don't clean the taps often. Place was FULL on a weeknight and yet they were still super attentive and we always had a beer in hand. One night we went there for beers to kill time before a reservation nearby.... More

We are thankful that Alvin (a local) made sure that we tried Croc Sisig and Lato in Kinabuch! The ambiance is relaxing and laid back. The waiters will immediately attend to your needs. The food is served fresh, fast and at a very affordable price. It is just 5mins away from Puerto Princesa airport so don't miss this out!

We had been told this was a good place and were not disappointed. The menu is quite extensive and they serve a variety of things, philippine foods and other styles of foods. As we drve here, most places seemed kinda quiet and unoccupied, but this place was busy. They have a couple large huts that can be used for different... More

We had lunch here. Unfortunately some of the exotic food weren't available the time we visited. They serve Filipino dishes. They also have a bar. We were able to try the crocodile sisig and it was gooooood! Food service took long but it was worth it.

This is one of the best restaurants for local Filipino food. I went there on 2 occasions and still loving it. The food is great and the price is reasonable. It was packed with people everyday. They had a giant screen at the parking lot and you can watch some sports events. Highly recommended are the kinilaw, sambas and sisigs..AWESOME!!!
