The service is ok, nothing special. I asked for a vegetarian pizza and they brought me a pizza with a few veggies around. You can get much better dishes for less money in other places. Cause we are in the Philippines don't expect a fast service.

Even after repeating our order back to us when we placed our order my wifes order was forgotten and when we reminded them it still took half an hour to come out. When it did it wasnt right (chips plated not rice) but my wife was too hungry and frustrated to complain. The resturant wasnt busy, and seemed the owner's... More

This restaurant is the best spot for dinner as it looks so vibrant compared to other restaurants’. That’s why we decided to have dinner here. Since there are no available viands for sharing, we ordered a la carte meals. Serving time is around 10-15 mins so it’s okay. I ordered prawn in garlic. The serving size is just okay, not... More

Mabuhai is a average eatery on a beach. Most food on the menu is not available as the rest of restaurants on island, but the cocktails and freshes were nice. The food is average and slow to serve.

All in all a very nice restaurant with friendly staff. Have eaten several things from the menu - try the mango and the banana chocolate shake. Nice sitting at the beach, too!

The food was good however it seemed like the food took forever to get to us but on this island everybody is kind of relaxed the owner actually tries to make these girls work faster but all they do is play on their phone so when a girl complains to you about how the owner treats them it's because she...

This restaurant is situated at one end of the beach and advertises its menu and such with the typical vinyl banners. The tables and chairs are old and rickety but all could be forgiven should the food be good. It isn't. Mediocre at best. While reasonably priced, the wait staff lack any enthusiasm serving a poorly displayed meal that begs... More

Went there 2-3 times to eat. Service is on the average and the food as well. Last breakfast we had to wait for 1 hour to get service. Funny thing is that there were basically no other guests there at that breakfast. Didn't go back there after that poor service.

Ate here last weekend since it was suggested by staff of Blue Corals where we are staying. Ordered two types of pizza and a cheesy macaroni or something. Both pizza were awful. The dough were not cooked enough and the taste is just not good. The cheesy macaroni is bearable but could be better. You pay P10 for each glass... More
