We had dinner there on our last night in Palawan. We requested to be seated in the non-smoking area but was advised that a group of koreans seated there were smoking. They should stick to their 'no smoking' policy in their non-smoking area and should not tolerate anyone no matter where they are from. A big minus from me. Food... More

Nothing special about this place. Ordered one of their specialty (based on one of their crew) which is seafood in oyster sauce, nothing special with the taste compare to other restos in Manila.

I'd rather eat at Kalui or Ka inato! Their food is average and below my expectations. Try some other restos.

The restaurant is an open air restaurant with TV's that shows sports. The food is ok. They were few attendants. The leche flan is not recommended.

Lovely range of foods that kept drawing us back on several occasions. Open type bars but with plenty of fans to keep air moving. A nice atmosphere to the place, far enough from the road to be quiet but near enough for easy access. Every meal seemed better than the last. Particularly love the frozen mango margaritas

The place was nice. The staff was courteous and attentive our needs. I had high expectations of Kinabuch Bar & Grill based from the recommendations I received about this place. But I was little bit disappointed. Their food was okay but not that great. Their pancit was even a bit salty. We all felt sleepy after eating and some of... More

My hubby and I decided to take our dinner here, they served the food too fast. Staff were too attentive when it comes to queries of the customers. Food is tasty and quiet big serving.

We were accommodated even without reservation. Good service and food didn't take long to be served despite the hundreds of diners. Gratuity will be most appreciated as the servers do n't earn much
