Stayed at Evolution in late July for 6 days, and ate every meal here. Still can't believe how they pulled it off, but you'll find food here is some of the best you've had... Quite an accomplishment given its location (remote island in the middle of nowhere). Expect a small menu, but also expect everything to be delicious.

Hi

Came over with my girlfriend and stayed at Evolution. The food at the Craic House changes everyday to suit the availability of produce, and you can really notice the difference in flavour. Some real creative meals I would never have expected on an island like Malapascua.

The dive shop attached was great too, with David and Matt being keen to educate and let their passion for the underwater world rub off on you.

Great place to be with a special someone.

I consider a good experience when Im taken care of in a comforting fashion. I consider a great experience when I am awed and made to feel like family. The Craic House does just that. It welcomes you and keeps you. While visiting there I felt the staff went out of there way to make me feel welcome. Most other places on the island felt stodgy, overpriced and the staff had the personality of a door knob. At the Craic House the food was comforting, the drinks were poured so that you felt them. The staff always had a smile and were happy you were there. Im a hard guy to please, but I really had a good time there. Id recommend that if your on the island, get your body to the Craic House and try the food, enjoy the music and share a drink and a dive story with David & Matt, you'll be glad you did.

If you are looking for good food, warm and friendly people or cheap beer than Craic House is the way to go! The girls working at the bar make you laugh all day long and you often end up hanging around longer than you had planned :-) Menus are changing on a daily basis with a mix of Asian and Western cuisine and the food was in general very good, some times excellent. If you go there, ask for a drink called 'Rio Cola' from Janice, she knows how to blend it!

If you want to have fun the Craic house is the place to be! The staff are so warm and friendly it feels like they have been your friends forever instantly! You find yourself talking more with the staff than other guests sometimes! If you have a special drink you wanna mix, they will let you do it and learn it themself for the future. Good rooms with fan and aircon. And the food.. No standard menus in that house. It changes evey day. So far i havent found anything that i dident like! Its truly a paradise next to the beach! If you go to Malapascua you go to the craic house! And after a long day of diving you can find a masseur on the beach that will soften your muscles.
