“Modern Market”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Ocho grill served the best seafood in town! Enough said. There has been countless reviews of Ocho grill, and with good reason, as they give you the 'turo-turo' style of picking the stuff you want to eat and choosing the manner in which they are cooked while at the same time providing you with great ambiance and modern-style seating. The fresh catch is presented to you in a strictly no photographs area and all you have to do is mix and match the dishes with your preferred style of cooking. What surprised me the most is that, unlike same style restaurants here in Manila, they do not charge for cooking. You pay for the seafoods per 100g, minimum 300g, and that is the only thing you have to pay for.

Aside from the dishes, they serve wine and desserts among other things that make this grill a truly modern one. It is simply like dining in a fancy restaurant with the price of fresh caught wet market goods. One should not miss this dining experience when they go to Tacloban.

Word of advice though: go early, as it gets quite full during dinner time.

“Good food, great price”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Even though I have to cut down on seafoods, I just can't help it when I go here. I just love their clubhouse sandwich.

“Best-est seafood place in Tacloban City”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

You've got to try the lato with calamansi and baked scallops!!! I also recommend the kinilaw na tangigue and of course the sweet spicy crabs and prawns.
You just have to order the fresh seafood on display and they'll cook it like you want it, like in Dampa. Simply delicious.
