The Craic House is definitely one of the best places to eat and grab a beer in Malapascua. The location is one of the best, being on the quieter side of Bounty Beach. The food is freshly prepared and tasty. We loved the kinilaw and the burgers. Service was very friendly and everyone made you feel right at home.

The Craic House has some great food with specials changing every day that are a must to try! Great location on the beach and very nice staff that will take care of all of your needs with a smile. One of my favorite restaurants to hit happy hour, stay for a couple of beers after and grab some great food for dinner. Great people and great atmosphere!

Great atmosphere, great food! Lovely staff! What else do look for?

I ended up having more or less all my lunches and several dinners here. Now they also sell Swedish "snus" which obviously is a great bonus :)

Second time visiting Malapascua. My worries post-typhoon were unfounded since the resort actually looks much nicer than before and the Craic house expanded.

Staff were just as friendly and very accommodating as before. After the typhoon they hired a Restaurant Manager - a great move since I noticed much better quality in the meals. Fish tacos were amazing. Loved their kinilaw and Irish dishes as well as their take on the local Filipino dishes. Definitely a great gastropub experience and certainly the best restaurant on the island.

In between the meal downtimes while everyone's out diving, Anton the restaurant manager plays guitar, does card tricks, or tells epic tales of adventure for the lounging non-diving guests - a nice touch that adds much more chillness to the great beach atmosphere.

As for the servers - they were great and went above and beyond their duties. I say this because I was tasked with babysitting my 7 month old nephew. As a bachelor, the servers were immensely helpful and gentle in calming my nephew down when trouble shooting his needs. :)

I can't wait to visit again.
