The philippine grouper was cooked perfectly and the staff were extremely attentive. To have dinner and them relax in the bar afterwards for drinks was great. Only small complaint was a family from overseas who seemed unable or unwilling to control their kids who were left to run wild thru the restaurant.

Love the view of the restaurant. Although the staff is not as friendly as Tea of Spring, but they are nice. I love the seafood there. It was very tasty. They also have live music while we are dining.

We went there on our first and third evenings at Shangri-la. Their food menu was not extensive but the food and service were good. We got some helpful recommendations from the lovely waitress on our first night because we were obviously struggling with our choices due to plain personal indecisiveness. Eventually, we went for an all seafood dinner. On our... More

We went with friends and partied each night at Cowrie Cove. There is a DJ who loves to play whatever you ask, great happy friendly bar staff and far enough away from the rooms you can stay there until the early hours!

A truly romantic corner of the hotel where you can have an excellent dinner, surrounded by the Shangri-la Resort gardens and at the same time, close to the ocean.

Great views of the sea from this bar on the pier. Friendly staff, but expensive drinks. Beers were 180 pesos, standard price on the resort but 4-5 times more expensive than at local places.

We have eaten here several times and have utilised the bar for outings - very nice in the afternoons and evenings. Maintains the Shangri-la fine service edge.

We stayed at Shangrila for 3 days and 2 nights and we decided to have our dinner here on our first night because my husband thought that this was the best. He was very excited to bring us (me and my son) there because of the good reviews that he had read through the internet. Yes, this resto was the... More
