Delicious food

The first restaurant I have been with a pineapple theme. The food they serve will always have a hint of pineapple in it. They serve their rice on pineapple halves, the pineapple meat scooped out. Their food is excellent and their pineapple shake is to die for.

We went to the place 2 days prior to book our dinner as we had a big group coming. When we arrived on the night, they did not have our booking. We were lucky we had come early and there were two tables available that could be joined together for us. The mango shakes that came out were very inconsistent.... More

I have tried Sals in both Ormoc and Tacloban and their food is consistently good. Ambiance in the Tacloban branch is fancier than that of Ormoc but both places are clean, airy, comfortable and quite nice.

My family is from Ormoc, so if I visit them every 3 months to be exact. My father never fails to request a pochero from Sal's and their signature pancit canton. Wish granted for my dad since it's also one of my favorite dish. The food is great and the price is right. The ambiance is also relaxing especially during... More

We stopped here after a long road trip. The service was spotty. We ordered beer and a bottle of Cabernet. The beer came, but we had to flag down the waiter twice to get our wine. I think they had to find a bottle because very few people would order a bottle of wine. When it came to ordering another... More

Great eating experience. You get to choose your food, much if which is uncooked and let them know how you want it done. there is a buffet style set up where you can choose dishes from. Food is always of good quality. I try and eat here every time I am in Ormoc. Only reason they don't get 5 starts... More

Very nice place, as an engineer I enjoyed the construction of the building, the bamboo frame and huge open space they created with it! The food tasted really good! There was live music when we were there, to us as a couple it was a tiny bit to loud. But the choice of songs was nice as well

Sal's Bar and Restaurant was the first restaurant to open just 5 days after Super-typhoon Yolanda hit Eastern Visayas. To cope with a people hungry for good food, and tired of canned goods and noodles, they opened up a "buffet" style counter where they dished out a variety of dishes. It has been a hit since, and almost two years... More
