This is a very low cost budget resto. Very good for the kids, kids like chicken, they have the good BBQ.

Can't miss this restaurant because of the huge kettle in the front. There is nice seating on the perimeter of the restaurant because it's like individual huts. The food is acceptable, nothing too memorable. The staff is rude and uncaring.

Ordered a mixed seafood platter for 500 pesos. Incredible variety, many different filipino dishes served on a huge wooden board with (I think) banana leaf coverings which doubled as our plate. Really delicious and easily fed two (could have done three). Beautiful restaurant with traditional Philippine handicrafts decorating it. Definitely worth visiting.

You have to ring the bell on top of you table ceiling for service. Place smells of incest, maybe to drive away the mosquito coming from their pond. I didn't get to enjoy the food, it took almost an hour for our orders to be serve. The waiting time took my appetite away. Food variety has nothing unusual. just typical... More

Ate here in March 2014. The atmosphere is nice but the menu is limited. The price is a bit high and the portions small. I had lunch here and was not that impressed. The food was simple and the taste common. This is a one time visit for me, as there are better places to eat in Puerto Princesa. Lunch... More

We chose this restaurant so we can enjoy the local dishes of Palawan and we were not disappointed.. The place is really warm and cozy.. We chose a table where we could sit on the floor (indian sit) and lie down afterwards (kidding!).. The place has many interesting pieces up to the bathroom and since we are so eager to... More

An actual Boodle Fight, we never really had one before so we gave it a try. We arrived before 8 pm, the place was very quaint. There were some groups there having dinner, mostly tourist quite a few foreigners. So we took a few minutes to look at the menu and decided to go for the Boodle special and a... More
