I'm not sure what I appreciated more…the gorgeous views of the water and the landscape beyond it or the deliciousness of all of the fresh food. You can watch/choose which crabs you will eat, along with a variety of other dishes available. We ordered the shrimp and crab…both were delicious!

Delicious (seafood, pork, chicken, veges). Particular highlight was the crab. Well priced beer. Great service. Nice location. We came here twice for lunch in two days.

We went here to have lunch and had to walk out because the service and ambiance were horrible. They charged an extra 100 pesos to sit by the water and once you sat there, the lagoon smelled like rotting fish. We moved to a different table inside and couldn't stand it because all the servers that worked there were sitting... More

Food was great and fresh! It would be nice to have a boating experience in their restaurant but they compensated it with the view and fresh breeze.

By far, that was the best and the freshest seafood we had in whole Philippines. Prawns in a size of fist and melting in your mouth fish. Besides the standard offer, you can also pick your fish from the nearest lagoon. Pricy but worth every little bit of it. Service a little bit moody but you come here for their... More
