Description: Alii! Drop Off Bar and Grill is an Outdoor, Open Air Bar and Grill restaurant specializing in fresh fish dishes, sashimi, burgers and pizza. We have a cozy location situated near the Neco Marine Dive Shop and marina that over looks a small bay near the Palau Royal Resort on the Malakal island. Come join us during the day for some cold drinks and lunch or for some fresh fish and cocktails on your night out. The fish is fresh, the internet is free, there is local beer on tap, the drinks are cold and there's always good company at our bar. Hope to see you soon!

We went there for after-dinner drinks. The place was conveniently located, within walking distance from our hotel. It was on a pier, so I imagine the view would have been very nice during the day.

We sat for about 20 minutes before someone came over to take our drinks order. The drinks came in a trickle, one by one. By the time the last drink arrived, the beer that arrived first was warm. How hard was it to open a beer bottle and pour a few beers from a tap and then deliver them together?

The tables that are a little further from the bar were very poorly lighted, we could not read the menus and had to use our phones for additional lighting.

The bill took about 15 mins to arrive, and another 15 to get settled. I think this place is taking "island time" a little too literally.

We didn't try the food so really can't comment. I'd suggest going only if the place is not so busy, so you'd get some semblance of service.

Our friends invited us to go because they liked the food and thought it a fun place. For some reason the waitress treated us as separate tables even though we were at one long table. She ignored us as she served drinks to our friends and didn't take our order until we ask her to. Then even though we all ordered food at the same time, the 3 of us had to wait an extra half hour to get our food and had to watch our 4 friends enjoy theirs. It ruin our dinner. I asked for a substitution for the rice and was told okay, but got the rice anyway once the dinner finally arrived and the waitress acted surprised when I said I had asked for veggies. Wouldn't recommend or go back.

Place is understaffed, poor quality waitresses, long waits for food. But food was good once it arrived. We have given it a few tries over the months, and it just never improved. Great location though.

It won't be the best food in Palau, nor will it have the largest selection. Also, the service may be a little lacking at some times. But the food is delicious, well prepared, affordable and there is free wifi. It's a bit of a pub atmosphere and seating is all outside, so not the place for a wedding anniversary. Non the less, I went here many times because of how affordable/convenient it was. A great place to meet new friends too since everyone, new and old, knows about it
