Lovely location and good quality food. Certainly worth a visit. Also very reasonably priced. The sunset is a lovely photo opportunity.

We went to this restaurant because of review of the guest, So ride in trike just to reach the place which is very far. The food is not exceptional, compare to other restaurant in Puerto, the only advantage is your view is sea and mangrove.

After being recommended this restaurant and seeing some good reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to try it ourselves. Our table was booked for 19:30, however after we’d finished our starters at 20:15 they began to pressure us (rather rudely) into ordering our mains. When our...mains had arrived, we found them to be bland and tasteless. We had ordered the sizzling squid, 2 different varieties of crab (as no lobster was available), chop seuy and garlic rice. The rice had clearly been on the hob all night, it was over cooked and slushy and the chef fried 2 cloves of garlic to put on top. The chop seuy was also tasteless, no seasoning whatsoever and the prawns were not de-veined. The sizzling squid, was probably the most over cooked and chewy squid we have ever eaten. Finally the crab, had little meat but again no taste whatsoever. Further to our dissatisfaction, whilst trying to stomach the above, the waiter gave us the bill to get us out the door so they could close. We had not been informed of an early finish, otherwise we would have booked an earlier table, just to add to our disappointment. There were many more restaurants we have visited during our stay and this was by the far the worst.More

Visited this restaurant multiple times this month at different times. The place is clean, and beautiful overlooking Honda Bay and the mountains . The food is delicious- the kind of home cook food you're looking for. The servers are courteous and respectful. The green mango...juice ....... oh so good!More

We went to dinner at this restaurant on our last night in Puerto Princesa on the recommendation of our hotel as well as from people we met during our trip. This place didn't disappoint at all. You do need to make a reservation and showing...up there without one is not recommended. This restaurant is not easily accessible without a car. So, if you don't have one, you'll need to arrange a tricycle to take you there and back to your hotel. Service was great and the food was great. We had the usual binagoongang baboy, tanguige steak and lumpiang shanghai. All of them cooked in the traditional Filipino style and they were all superb.More

Very good quality seafood, the squid was delicious. Food took a bit of time to come out but overall great experience, and ambiance was nice especially with their open air set up during covid.

I love their seafood. It's fresh and affordable. Their lobster at this time is P400 per 100grams. The seafood platter is 895 good for 2-3 pax. Nice ambiance. Seafront with lots of mangroves from the entrance.

Enjoy fresh lobsters, tuna and more seafood at Badjao seafront restaurant. A restaurant tucked away from the main road, the bridge way leading to the entrance where a mangrove forest surrounds it will await your dine. And to make it more unforgettable, a view of...the sea and brilliant sunset completes the scenery..More

Yes the view is amazing and the service was good. Food came out quick. The food however was subpar. Pork sisig was so chewy and the beef was tough. There was also a child with a squeaker in his shoe running around 95% of the...time. Beyond a distribution to our meal. No one said anything to this child’s parents even though everyone in the restaurant was bothered by it. Overall would not recommend it.More

We went becuase we wnted a meal with Palaweno (microbrewery) craft beer. Palaweno had recommended as the restaurant apparently stocks their product. Ordered an IPA and was delivered a Wit (wheat beer). Wit was all they had in stock! This venue clearly caters for an...upmarket clientelle. To advertise that they stock a product range (in the menu) and not bother to replenish stocks smacks of incompetance. We left, seeking somewhere else.More

The restaurant was almost empty, for a Saturday night. Now I know why... Every dish we ordered was sub par. Garlic butter shrimp - no garlic and no butter. It seemed to be boiled shrimp with a watery type sauce. Zero taste apart from boiled...shrimp. Seafood fried rice - absolutely tasteless. Salt and pepper squid - came out as a sweet chilli squid. Kare Kare - not really tasty also. Pancit - average. We were a table of 5,all had the same conclusion. No wonder the restaurant was empty. Don't bother... Hundreds of better restaurants in Puerto princesa.More

This is that special occasion restaurant, beautiful setting and the seafood is fabulous. The only downside is it can take a long time to be served which is ok if have all evening to spend here, otherwise pre-order. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Our resort recommended this restaurant and we were curious enough to try it. It was somewhat secluded but the tricycle drivers knew where the place so it was all that bad. Attractive bridge to get to the actual restaurant and the ambiance were really nice....The restaurant seats on the water and probably would have look good during the day, unfortunately, we went for dinner but even then, the surrounding looks pretty good. The food itself were pretty good. The only disappointment probably was not everything in the menu was available. There was a couple of items in the menu what we would have liked to try but were told were unable. But otherwise, the food were delicious. And the service was great...More

Hi Mjg. I didn't see flowers in the restaurant. It might be good to order from the concierge of your hotel to make sure you have the flowers for your birthday girl.
