This was the restaurant recommended to us by the locals in Alaminos. It's close to their plaza and so parking was easy. It's true that their restaurant is by the seas so we got a glimpse of the view of the waters from where we were seated. It was only night-time when we went to we couldn't truly savor the... More

I go here every time I visit the Philippines. As a tourist, I worry about food safety and cleanliness, but I don't have to worry about that here. Food is delicious and reasonably priced If you want quality, you get what you pay for. Views are unbeatable and the staff are always on standby if you need them. My favorites... More

We ate lunch at Maxine's after visiting the Hundred Islands. We chose a table where we enjoyed the sea breeze and the surrounding view of the Lingayen Gulf. We ordered the seafood platter and food was excellent...esp the marinated oysters (like ceviche)! Service was timely. The restaurant including the CR facilities are clean. I will definitely go back there again... More

Maxine's sits on the sea in stilts. You can feel the sea breeze as you dine, not to mention you see gorgeous views. Their seafood is very fresh and their cooking delicious. Their fried oysters are to die for!

After a tiring island hopping, was asking around the locals what restaurant they can recommend for us and all was pointing at Maxine Restaurant. At first glance, I would like to try as seeing there are many people dining in (by the time we arrived). So we ordered, took a while for our orders. Rice Platter was served with a... More

I celebrated my birthday here with my friends. It was a wonderful place. The ambiance is good because of the view of Hundred Islands National Park. The food such as the calamares, sinigang na bangus, and talaba are great!

We had heard of this restaurant from locals and it comes highly recommended. We happened upon it by chance while exploring Lucap Wharf, looking for a place to have dinner in after a day spent island hopping in the Hundred Islands National Park. We did have dinner there and the place was very busy. We dined in the charming outdoor... More

Visited with hubby and 2 other couples during the long holiday (Oct 29-31, 2016). I was surprised that this restaurant was just 5mins away from the resort where we stayed in. It didnt have any signage you'd be able to see at night. Nor do I think you'd notice it at daytime. Though according to the locals, this resto boasts... More
