“Great view, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

We stopped by this restaurant almost every day. They had a German hefeweizen in the can and it sure is hard to find good, full-flavored beer in Malapascua!

“Ghastly Dining Experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

The service was really really slow. After 20 minutes from our order was taken, they informed us that our food is not available. So we picked another one but it took them about 40 minutes to serve it. When the food finally arrived, the portion was small and even have to remind them about the salad which should be served with it. Really terrible experience, I'd rather have skipped lunch than go through the Magellan experience again.

“Skip Magellan's”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Food was average and portions small, and service very slow (25 min after i ordered to let me know they didn't have fish for example). Much better food and value at other restaurants nearby.

“Beautiful Sea View..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Food is average.. Service is slow.. View is amazing.. If you are bored with the rest of Malapascua.. then this is your choice.. I would head down to Craic House for a better experience..

“Good Filipino Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

If you're craving for Filipino food and you're in Malapascua, I suggest you go here. Food is good, the restaurant is tastefully decorated, the service is great.

We even had a good chat with the owner's parents who are also vacationing there. Really nice couple. They made sure that our food is done to our liking, and they gave us a couple of pointers for our stay in Malapascua.

Only downside is that it is a bit expensive. But I'm not going to rant about it because I understand that purchase & transport to Malapascua of quality ingredients for their dishes is quite challenging.
