“Cold, Old Food. Boring Sad River”

Loboc Rioverview Restaurant
Ranked #5 of 9 Restaurants in Loboc
Cuisines: Filipino
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 6, 2014

We were looking forward to this portion of our tour. Since the River Cruise is a tourist attraction, specialising in lunch and a river cruise, you'd think the food would be good, or the river beautiful but neither was the case.

We had to pay 450 P Per Person. We stayed at Bohol Bee Farm and the food there cost less and was DYNAMITE so paying for a cold, old buffet lunch was more then disappointing.

The cruise packs on the tourists, you eat as soon as you board - are charged for any food you don't eat and then the old boat (they are in a cue so you end up on what ever boat is up next) starts up, a local blasts his 80's songs (loud!!) and you putter down the most boring river you'll ever spend time on. It stops at a sad dock where a group of local woman play ukulele's and sing three songs - man o man - I say save your 450 p per person and just go down the river and donate it to these woman,

All of the tourist attractions were so disappointing and often very sad - avoid esp any animal attractions!

I was excited when I saw one of the itineraries of our country side tour was buffet lunch at Loboc river. Because I haven't tried something like this before, eat while cruising up the river. The view was nice. But the buffet, for me its not worth the money :(. With only several choices of food. And for the drink we only had 1 glass of ice tea. If u want other drinks u should pay more. I hope they can improve it so the tourism in Bohol can be revived again. I know people there are trying hard for it. Lets us support them by inviting our relatives and friends to visit Bohol again!

What a good way to experience bonding time with family and friends in a leisurely way of eating buffetlunch, while strolling the river and being serenaded by music band and dance number in different riverbanks along the way

It is a one day tour with lunch on the cruise. I like it very much as we can have our meals with songs performed by local singers and overview of the Loboc River.
The sceneray is astonishing and the cruise will stop by local village. We can play with the local people and learned their culture.
There are many souvenir shops along the port but mostly are not cheap.
Food is still ok and the environment is quite peaceful.
Fees:
Ticket is PHP100 (without meals) per head
PHP300 (with meals) per head

There are a few different floating restaurants which cruise up and down on Loboc river. Food was average, but the atmosphere is nice. One of the guests had a birthday, so the whole experience was very good and funny.

However the river is not very clean, and the restaraunt is not very good.
