I love the food at Ocho and prices are very reasonable. Must try are: kangkong cooked in gata (or coconut milk), fried tonto fish, nilasing na hipon, buko milk shake.

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Freshly cooked food. You have to wait for a couple of minutes especially if you ordered a lot of dishes. They also serve beer. Resto layout and design is good and relaxing. But expect it to be full during lunch and dinner time. Locals and foreigners go here to eat some famous visayan dishes.

“Revisited this famous Resto in Tacloban”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

I was not disappointed, actually, very satisfied with my order of crab in coconut cream, grilled malasugi, the Kongkong in coco cream, the shell soup. The shrimp was so so and the grilled beef rib was not as we expected.

“Best clam shell soup ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

The clam shell soup (Buranday) was wonderful. The flavor of ginger took it to the next level of awesome. Also, the beef kebab marinated with whatever marinade they use plus thyme was delicious and tender. Not bad for the price. Though speed of service could use some improvement, overall, it was a wonderful dinner for me and my parents.
