I recommend this restaurant for family and friends for any occasion. Place is easily accessible even to commuters. Try the crispy pata here, the best in town!

It took a while to get our food because a large group was in the restaurant. The air conditioner did not cool our portion of the restaurant. A family next to us had a small child and they spent most of their time fanning the baby and themselves, so much so, that they ate fast and left. We felt as... More

Whenever I'm in Naga, a trip to Bob Marlin is a must for their crispy pata! My wife loved their maragarita too! Make Bob Marlin one of your must visit when you find yourself in Naga City.

Best crispy Pata in Naga. Prices are reasonable and plenty for everyone. We are not drinkers so I do know about beer or spirits but the iced tea is good. Within walking distance from Villa Casares Hotel. Walk down night or day and enjoy.

I usually rate restaurants not only on one popular dish but the order dishes in the menu, i tried their sinigang from salmon, but the salmon already had a smell and in was macerated or easily disintegrated, I complained but the waiter only looked at me as if he didn't understand what I was saying but since I was only...

There is also a Bob Marlin place at JP Rizal Street in Legazpi City with a reggae vibe. The crispy pata is great, the fat simply melts in your mouth and the meat simply crispy. Plus they serve fast! We were seated in a room with a giant photo of Mt. Mayon, with background music by none other than Bob... More

Nothing compares with Bob Marlin's melt-in-your mouth crispy pata. It has more meat, less bones, less fat, and the skin is just perfect. Couple it with Sinigang and you have two of the best viands that the restaurant offers. If you want to add more, their lumpia shanghai is flavorful. A trip to Naga won't be complete without visiting Bob... More

The food was great. We ordered kare-kare and their famous crispy pata. Crispy pata was so big, we were not able to finish it. I also like the style of the restaurant, it looked like a place where you can surf because of the decorations. There were no live band when we ate there, sayang. But overall, it was a... More
