Food was great and fresh! It would be nice to have a boating experience in their restaurant but they compensated it with the view and fresh breeze.

By far, that was the best and the freshest seafood we had in whole Philippines. Prawns in a size of fist and melting in your mouth fish. Besides the standard offer, you can also pick your fish from the nearest lagoon. Pricy but worth every little bit of it. Service a little bit moody but you come here for their... More

My friends and I were excited to try this restaurant because of the ambiance. We ordered our food and we were told it will take about 15-20 minutes. It took an hour for them to bring out our food and when we asked why it took so long, the waitress explained that it takes 30-40 minutes. We've been waiting for... More

worst service and staffs. you have to wait for an hour for your food despite having several servers. Staffs are rude and apathetic. foods are tasteless and bland. the only thing we enjoyed is the softdrinks, thanks to coca cola. we so regret eating here.

We been there many times while we stayed in camiguin. Always had good and FAST service. The best restaurant where you can have a fish in camiguin. Very pleasant place right next to the lake, especially if you rent a floating dining cottage. Reasonable price for meals and drinks. Definitely must-go place if you stay in camiguin!

Try your luck with your own fishing rod or go zip lining while waiting for the food. Cold beer and perfectly grilled fish in at hut on the lagoon. Try the chili crab!!!

Dislikes: - I find it expensive than most restaurants in Camiguin. I wouldn't mind paying that much, but the squid we ordered they say... More

They got friendly staffs and a good place. They also offer fishfeeding - i think the only in Camiguin. Their food is great but takes loòoong to be served and are a little pricy (about 20-30% more expensive than what it should be) They have one of the cheapest accommodation in the Island though - perfect for backpackers!
