This place is one of the best restaurants in Moalboal. Their pizza is really something magical. They have huge servings and an extensive menu. The ambience of the place is very relaxing at night. It is located by the pool, which adds some charm and character to the place. The chairs are quite heavy to move. There are also a... More

Marina Cucina is run by the same Italian restaurant in the city - La Tegola. They serve great pizza and pasta. It takes time for them to cook, 30 minutes at least, so do order in advance. We stayed there the entire morning until lunch. Swam (snorkel) just about 10 meters away to see the school (but i say university)... More

We each had a Pizza and they were both great! Thin crust with yummi mozarella cheese and good Salami. Setting is beautiful.

So this place is a bit underrated if you consider its location along the Philippine waters. Just 5meters from the shore starts a sea cliff that goes approximately 40meters deep. It's a nice place for snorkeling and General swimming though i advise wearing some protective gear (like a dive suit) when swimming to the general roughness of the water. It's... More

Decided to try this place as it was by the sea and it looked a lot fancier than the others in the area. Ordered the seafood marinara and it was one the best marinara's I have eaten. Only criticism I have is the serving was a not big enough. Delicious food should come in big serves!!!

Our breakfasts were the kick-start for the day. The choices were pretty much the same among all the restaurants along Panagsama beach, but Marina prepared it in a way that you felt you were eating at home (in flavor), eating out (in atmosphere), eating in style (with the pampering of the waiters) and dining with nature (in their beachfront location)
