“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We spent a week on Malapascua diving at Evolution. We had all our meals here and found the restaurant and Irish Pub to be fantastic. Food was great and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Look no further for food on the island than the Craic House and be sure to try their Irish Car Bombs.

“fab food and drink - friendly atmosphere and a must after a great day's diving!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We loved the Craic House. It was a great find. We dived with Evolution and when we weren't diving we hung out at the Craic House. Food and drink were excellent. The food was so delicious - a small menu but with a mix of local and international dishes. They also have daily specials and I loved the ploughman's sandwich - a real taste of back home! The beach front setting is great too.

“Great setting & music but average food”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We came here for dinner one night during our week long stay as it was rated #1 on trip advisor. It was a nice change in atmosphere as it had decent music as compared to the some of the other restaurants on the island. Food was decent but we had better meals at Oscars (highly recommended for dinner). It was also nice that they had a veggie menu, but their veg curry was slightly disappointing. It was the only place we found on the island that had ciders, so that was awesome! In a nutshell, while I'm not raving about the food, I would recommend the Craic for a meal if u're on the island for a period of time.

“"Perfect"”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Ate there a few times, and was the "perfect" end to very relaxed island living with some great diving. The staff/ music/ food/ atmosphere/ beer were all excellent, just wish it was nearer to home! Hopefully return one day.
