The view off the boulevard was very nice. There was a piano player even at lunch time. The seafood was very fresh. The waiter even brought the live crab to.our table.to check if we were ok with that size! Hubby ordered the dumaguete express which came in a generous serving. It was quite good but he wished the sauce was... More

We had our first meal here and were extremely delighted with the wide range of choices and the food we ordered. The native chicken soup with coconut milk was great and so were the tinolang tangigue and kinilaw with grilled liempo.

Food is good, a little expensive compared to the others but they're the only place I know with a wide array of seafood choices in Dumaguete. You would also have a nice view of Cebu and Siquijor Island (not to mention Sumilon Island). Must say, worth your penny.

Lab-as is surprisingly a place where you could enjoy a lot of things. Food is quite good and at affordable prices. Right beside Hayahay (another good place), you could enjoy drinks, a live band (food is also good at Hayahay). Make sure you order the Dumaguete Express! Good portions and really hard to beat the prices. The menu choices are... More

Anyone visiting a certain place for the first time the best way to divert yourself to their culture is to taste their food. First night in Dumaguete City and we asked the tricycle driver to drop us to the food strip. Then we got off and considered Lab-as Seafood Resaturant. If you are really hungry and impatient to wait for... More
