Not likely to get its first Michelin star any time this century, but relaxed, simple, copious, very cheap and quite tasty... What else can you ask from a small local restaurant on the beach?

Having reluctantly returned to Mabuhay I'm please to say I'm convinced they have dramatically improved since my previous visits. In particular the service was excellent with chatty and witty staff. The food was delicious and the menu is now comprehensive. Well done Mabuhay, keep up the great work!

My partner and i were very impressed with this restaurant. We were on a bit of a budget during our recent stay in Malapscua and visited the establishment on many occasions. We tried various dishes and we couldn't fault any of them. Every visit left us very happy with the delicious food that didn't break the bank. Definitely excellent value... More

We had dinner in this restaurant once during our holidays in Malapascua this August 2016. The food was ok. We were also offered a trip for the following day to Calamangan island. We agreed to be there at 8:30 the following day. We arrived on time and there was no trip at all. We could not get a clear answer... More

This place is quite cheap and slow like most restaurants and eateries around, with a wide selection of simple dishes, some better than others. I found the spinach omelette with garlic rice quite nice, but the Mediterranean pizza with okra, carrots and cabbage was a bit awkward. I don't think you will ever find a pizza like that out of...

PROS: 1. I ordered Sizzling Gambas with Rice and it was the Bomb. Super spicy, yet super yummy! The serving portion could be improved, but still everything was good. 2. Location. The restaurant is located at Bounty Beach (beside blue corals resort), where you will be dropped off when coming from Maya Port going to Malapascua Island. Very accessible.

This restaurant is located right at the entrance of Bounty Beach when you're coming from Logon Beach! They have lovely beach side seating under a large tree where you can spend hours just relaxing and reading! This place has a very limited vegetarian menu, so I didn't eat here as often! Although, their mixed vegetable curry was perfectly spiced, creamy... More

I was GRANDPAcking in Malapascua for 11 nights and tried a few different places. There is one budget restaurant on Bounty Beach: the Mabuhay. It is cheaper than the others but not, necessarily, better value for money. You are paying to be on the beach. You get better value for money going to the restaurants in the back street parallel...

The restaurant is at the end of the beach, close to massive building of Blue Coral resort. Has tables under the trees right on the beach, so you can relax at your meal. Any meal swe tried was tasty and prices were quite moderate. Very good option if yo do not need a super trendy restaurant.
