Others said that best time to visit this place is on a lunch time. But I highly recommend to make your reservation before sunset for an early dinner. You will have a magnificent romantic setting of sky, sea and trees. It was a quiet lovely night. The restaurant is an al fresco restaurant situated above mangrove. It's decorated with colorful...

We went there at lunch time. We took the tricycle to go to the place which is nearby the airport. Ordered a set of seafood meal costing 995 pesos. It was a lot for four. I recommend the tasty sizzling squid. Fish and other seafoods were fresh. The lobster was priced per gram. We enjoyed our meal with the ovelooking... More

After a week in the Philippines I was hoping for some really ecceptiomal cuisine. Badjao was apparently the place to go for such a dinning experience in Puerto Princessa. Don't get me wrong, it was really good, but i wanted to be blown away. And for the price we paid it should have been better. The restaurant is located in... More

I fell in love with the place as soon as I got out of the car. The mangroves and the foresty vibe just took my breath away! It's a bit far from the city proper but it's worth the drive. Just looking at the beautiful view and breathing fresh salty air makes the dining experience a whole lot better. Looking... More

The restaurant have the nice view of the sea specially on sunset. Food are good, could be better. I love their local food. Staff are nice but food takes time to be serve. Over all it was a good experience because I catch the sunset.

We came for dinner with reservations. I was happy with the reservation because they gave a us a good table even without me specifying for it. We came rather early, around 6pm and the sun was still setting so the view was beautiful. Transportation was a little stressful. Our hotel is in the city proper so we took a tricycle.... More

Before Flying back to Manila, we had lunch at Badjao Seafront. We entered through a narrow , long wooden pathway and is surrounded by mangroves, at the end of the pathway is the restaurant. Once you reach the restaurant, you can feel the welcoming sea breeze and appreciate the surrounding beauty of where the restaurant is. We took the set... More

Absolutely stunning seafood restaurant set out over the sea. We took a tricycle from the centre of Puerto Princesa and you are greeted on arrival by a long jetty out to the restaurant itself. It's not too busy at our lunch and service is a little casual but the quality and value of the food makes it all worthwhile. With... More
