Since over 15 years I go there to have dinner or lunch. Even when I just pass through town, I take a detour just to eat there. Good fish dinners, always try the special of the day- its worth it.

What to say.... 45min after order we were still waiting our chicken adobo . When we complained to the manager we managed to get it cancelled and replaced by a sandwich which led to super confusion with the waitresses refusing to make the sandwich because the chicken was coming (despite the management information) but the chicken was in fact not...

We mostly ate breakfast here since it was close to our hotel. THe breakfasts are large but expensive. The omelets are OK, but pancakes and yoghurt are both a little nausiating. And don't try tthe burgers.

Amazing view overlooking the ocean and divers going out in boats. Food was funny. The seafood pizza crust was done right, and the seafood seemed fresh, but the sauce seemed like bbq sauce from a bottle, and the cheese was weird. When I asked the waitress she said it was a mix of mozerella and cheese wiz sprayed from a... More

Poor cooking in otherwise great diving place. Philipino food quite average, and do not dare ordering European dishes - it's a disaster! One of the worst pizzas we've had (kid's choice; I KNOW one should eat local!) Uh-oh, but the sunset views are great!

We had a set dinner but it wasn't very tasty. We did not try anything else from the menu. The ambience of the restaurant is good.

This was our second time staying at Quo Vadis, where this restaurant is located. We loved it. They have expanded their menu, and now offer a variety of food, and it's very good. Big portions and reasonable prices.
