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!!!

A place to be when with friends, least expensive food, drinking hub with billiards. Good hang-out at night.

Big place but jampacked! Best to reserve a table! Order its specalties, the Palawan woodworm and the crocodile dishes! Best to arrive at your most comfortable clothes as it tends to be warm due to the crowd and open air setting. Ordering may be a challenge as the tables outnumber greatly the servers/ order takers but food was quick despite... More

A good selection of meals. Cold draught beer, only place found for draught beer in Puerto Princesa. Location was central. Service was okay to good.. Outdoor service service are not good in wet weather. Experiened meals several times and all good. Slightly pricey compared to smaller establisments, but very popular with tourists and locals. Well worth a visit or two... More
