IMPORTANT: The restaurant depicted is the old CU. It is now called TipTop. The new CU restaurant is now at 9.552012° North, 123.773297° East. We were at the new CU Biergarten! The owner did bring with him the quality of food to the new, more accessible place just off the main road. There are 3 distinct places where you can... More

We went for dinner and enjoyed very good food. Pork Medallions were very tasty, wouldn't expect this quality in PHP. Rump Steak was also delicious as well as Desserts. Schweinebraten also tender and sauce delicious. Staff was also attentive and helpful. Good value for money. Shop next to restaurant has German stuff (Hela Ketchup, Knödel etc). Very worth a visit....

The Biergarten is one of two places in Alona that can accomodate a larger group of people. Typical for German "beer gardens" you sit at long wooden tables and benches. Nice ambience, staff nice and friendly. The fare is average, but if you crave a "Schweinebraten with Knödel", go here. Unfortunately, the kitchen is outrageously slow - waiting times of... More

Nothing special, but it's not bad either. Staff is nice and food is tasty. Can't bring out any details because it was just a place to eat a quick dinner and leave.

I enjoyed my meal here! We only came here for a meal before a meal but the sausage in onion sauce with POTATOE pancake was very tasty in my opinion.

Tried the pork Knuckle and it was a waste of money. The meat was tough. I was expecting some tender meat falling apart from the bone and it was nothing like it. It was very expensive for what I got. They charged me 450php for 3 slices of tough meat and a piece of bone (the brought the pork knuckle... More

Just arrived in Panglao Island. Had a walk along the beach in order to decide where to have my dinner. My chicken was delicious with a great sauce. Served with rice and an ice-tea at the cheap price of 140 pesos. Portion was reasonable. Panglao is too touristic and commercial for my taste and among all the different restaurants I... More

Now the restaurant is called C.U. Biergarten. Crowded in the evening, open gril is very popular, be ready to wait for an hour or more.

I walked past and saw the pork knuckles going around on a wood burning grill. I ask the girls to put my name on one of them. ... lucky enough when we where seated 2 hours later there was only one left. It was served with delicious home made potato salad and the grilled pork was very nice. (I am... More

We have eaten at the old and the new CU restaurant. Same owner and chef. Their grilled items are very good and most of the entrees are delicious.
