The Blue Abyss Dive Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 28, 2014

We stayed in Moalboal for 5 days. We tried to eat at a different restaurant each day for lunch and dinner. The dinner we had at the Blue Abyss Restaurant was the worst by far all week. It seemed pretty busy the night we went, which seemed like a good sign. If people go there, its got to be good, right? However, clearly the staff were overwhelmed, but didn't care to even try to do a good job. Someone who appeared to be an owner or manager was having a large gathering (maybe 10 friends or family members at a table). The waitresses were so consumed by this man's table, they essentially ignored all other customers. After placing our order, it took almost 90 minutes to get our food, which turned out to be awful. The french fries were cooked in what tasted like really old oil. It was disgusting. My husband's friend chicken was burned-and the "meal" literally consisted of one miniature chicken wing. There was a happy hour special for half the price-which consisted of 4 wings-yet the meal was only one tiny wing? It was supposed to come with a salad. The salad was three thin tomato slices. But not a regular sized tomato-a mini one. Almost the size of a cherry tomato. We couldn't even get the attention of our waitress to ask if it was a mistake. We would have ordered more drinks while we waited....but after our initial order, (during the entire 90 minutes we waited for food) the waitress never came back to offer more drinks, and we could NOT get her attention to come back to the table. In the end while paying, we expressed our disappointment with the service, and the waitress just shrugged and said, "Well, we can't please everyone." She didn't even feign an apology. Every other meal we had in Moalboal was fantastic. I highly recommend the restaurants next door at Quo Vadis, Maya's, Maracosa's or Tipolo. But do not waste your time at the Blue Abyss.
